Dive into the past and experience a true speakeasy return to its roots June 25 at 7pm with The Rendezvous Presents: The Underground Revival, a modern day prohibition experience with live music, twenties era food and drinks and much more.
Venture past the red velvet drapes and down the staircase to a space that transcends time. Experience a modern day rendition of a classic party in an authentic blind pig. Meet friends old and new as you peruse the numerous goods, imbibes, and hors d’oeuvres while you dance to what can only be described as “electro swing” from the convivial band Good Co. Friends from Goorin Brothers will be offering discounted goods made with craftsmanship passed down generations since 1895.
Sponsored in part by Sound Spirits, Old Tom Gin will be the spirit of choice for the merriment and The Rendezvous’ original 1926 menu will fill the platters.
Tickets available for this 21+ event HERE
The whole evening will be $20 a ticket that will include live music, entertainment, bites and a cocktail. The bar will be open all evening and we can celebrate the repeal of the 18th amendment all night long. Come as you are, come dressed as Gatsby or throw on the nearest feathers and fringe for the iconic Flapper look!
About The Rendezvous and Jewel Box Theater
The Rendezvous and Jewel Box Theater are located in the heart of Seattle’s historic “Film Row,” which came to be when silent-era film exchanges sprouted up between Second and Third Avenues in the early 1900’s. The Jewelbox, a cozy theater located within The Rendezvous, hosted films while the restaurant catered to visiting Hollywood royalty who stayed across the street at the William Tell Hotel. The Jewelbox is one of the few last remaining and intact screening rooms from the “Film Row” Era.
In 1927, MGM Studio’s grand offices were located on the buildings top floor embellished with original leather walls as well as a hidden staircase that then led to the underground speakeasy. Today, the speakeasy is affectionately known as “The Grotto” and serves as a comedy venue and host to private parties.
Despite the passage of time, the space at 2322 2nd Avenue exudes its storied history in décor as well as in spirit – indeed, long-time bartenders swear the speakeasy’s departed patrons occasionally roam the halls. Music is often heard in peculiar corners of The Rendezvous late at night.
