The Valentine’s Ric Rac Club – Roses are Red

Join the Vintage Mafia for a Valentines Day special Ric Rac Club at London’s most glamorous Art Deco bar, Fontaine’s. With dancing tunes from the 1920s to the 1960s played by Miss Ginger Fizz and the VM girls plus another special guest DJ TBC, the night will be an elegant, cocktail-fuelled soirée. The venue is the fabulous new Art Deco bar and lounge in Dalston, Fontaine’s. Opened in December 2014 by burlesque star Emerald Fontaine, the upstairs bar is filled with authentic period furniture and decor (down to the glamorous bathrooms) and the downstairs Bamboo Lounge pays homage to the mid-century fascination with the South Pacific, with a perfect-sized...

Vintage Mafia x Prohibition

Apologies for the late notice of this rather exciting event announcement, but it’s been all systems go at the metaphorical VM Towers. Last weekend we curated the courtyard at the Royal Academy’s Midsummer Night’s Fete and next weekend, we are hosting a secret Ric Rac Club, deep in the bowels of the Bloomsbury Ballroom for Prohibition. Imagine, as a glamorous 1920s party fills the Art Deco ballroom’s main rooms, that a couple of corridors away, tucked into what used to be an old kitchen, a dark and sleazier affair is unfolding. Guests in the know approach the side entrance, speaking the passwords, ‘I’m a member of the Temperance...

Help! A Zombie Ate My Girdle

We had our Halloween Ric Rac Club at the Blacksmith and the Toffeemaker in Islington – a slightly bigger place than our beloved previous venue The Fox in Shoreditch. We did encourage costumes, obviously, but even we were surprised and pleased by the effort that some of our guests went to! Take a look at a selection of photos from the night, and head over to our Facebook page to see the whole lot!

Thanks a million!

    Last night The Ric Rac Club went off with a bang! Ok, so we may not have had any actual fireworks, but our gunpowder tea and King’s Ginger cocktails went down a treat, and the mini indoor sparklers were just the icing on Bethy’s buns for what was a super duper night. Thank you so much to all those of you that came, and well done to our raffle winners!! I’m sure the pork pie was eaten on the night bus home and the gorgeous hair net from Bettie Blues Loungerie came in handy for protecting those post party pin curls. The next Ric Rac Club will be in the new year, but stay tuned for our official photos of last night on Facebook…be sure...
