Herr Kettner's Kabaret

Berlin, and the chaotic Weimar republic is tearing itself apart as left and right political extremes vie for the people's hearts, while the currency devalues so quickly that wages are paid in wheelbarrows of cash and banknotes must be over-printed at 1,000 times their original worth. Where does one go to drown one's sorrows? Why, Herr Kettner's Kabaret, of course.

Step into a decadent, desperate world where economic collapse and political mayhem waltz drunkenly with bold new art and bolder social mores—the crossroads between an elegant feudal past and the thrilling modern world, where monocled aristocrats share tables with revolutionaries and women dressed as men, an artistic melting pot that produces the madness of Dada, George Grosz's satirical grotesques and the futuristic dystopian movie Metropolis.

Forget the gloom outside: here, across two floors of Herr Kettner's decadently beautiful house, you can sway to the new "jazz" music coming from America, learn to dance the Charleston, flirt with our cabaret singers, guffaw at our comedians, and quaff Champagne and cocktails like there's no tomorrow—there probably isn't.

Dress code: 1920s Berlin, moustachioed dandies, dizzy flappers, monocled counts, decadent aesthetes, firebrand radicals, apoplectic Teutonic military officers, predatory cross-dressers, itinerant jazz musicians, black or white tie

Non dining tickets are £20 and dining tickets are £65 which includes a three course meal.

    Hi, what time are you planning to leave the pub? I'll probably be there at about 7.30ish so maybe I should go straight there.

    How does Montagu pyke sound from around 7.30?

    • Kim (Kimora) G.

      Sounds good to me :-) could you message me your number please Robert if you don't mind thanks

      November 21, 2013

  • Naomi

    This looks like the sort of thing I would have loved! Wish I'd seen it before it sold out. Let me know how it is...

    November 21, 2013

  • Kim (Kimora) G.

    Can't wait for tomorrow ! Looking forward to meeting you all and happy to meet for pre-drinks whichever pub is closest I guess ?

    November 21, 2013

  • Jamina W.

    I don't think I'll realistically get back into the centre until 8 so I will have to meet you in there if you go to the pub first. Can anyone who wants to meet earlier make themselves known so a plan can be formed? The Montague Pyke, although not a particularly nice pub, is cheap and big so is an option. The Crown & Two Chairmen nearby is lovely but might be too busy if everyone meets first. Let me know!

    Also, if you don't have a ticket, please change your RSVP. And if you want me to text you when I'm in the club, and I don't have your number already, please PM me your number!

    This is now SOLD OUT! So if you don't have a ticket, please change your RSVP. What time were people thinking of getting there? I am catsitting that night so will have to go home and feed the cats first, so won't be able to go for a drink beforehand.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
