Cabaret Sauvignon: the deep & full-bodied draglesque variety show

What is draglesque? We’re not sure if it’s a word, but we love it. Imagine a venn diagram between drag and burlesque, and it’s the section in the middle, which also just so happens to be rhinestoned, wearing too much eyeshadow, and spinning tassels from multiple body parts.

An all-star lineup *to be revealed* join Dolly Trolley, the delightfully bonkers drag star and international burlesque artist, in her first cabaret production which critics are describing as well-rounded, crisp, complex, earthy, nutty and capable of ruining your carpet.

Expect genderfunk, sparkles, parody, tease, comedy, flying items of clothing, surprises and high-talent silliness, all while lounging in the vintage feels of Shoreditch’s Looking Glass Cocktail Club, where creativity and eccentricity meet, in this cabaret evening spectacular.

We’re popping the cork on Cab Sav on Thursday 20th June and already licking our lips, so #treatyoself, put down the pinot, and join us for our draggy-burly launch show.

The KOC Initiative: All POC Drag King Cabaret!

Come join us for a spectacular night of all POC Drag King Cabaret on Thursday 13th June at The Looking Glass Cocktail Club!

STARRING
SIGI MOONLIGHT 
RICHARD MELANIN III 
BEAU JANGLES 
and your host with the most (thongs) ZAYN PHALLIC! 

KINGS OF COLOUR TO THE FRONT 
This is the KOC Initiative: the UK’s only cabaret night dedicated to showcasing drag kings of colour. Radically reclaiming cabaret with its king-tastic line-up consisting entirely of performers of colour, this is cabaret that degentrifies, decolonises and deconstructs the art of drag itself – all whilst putting on one hell of a show.

FOR KOC BY KOC 
The KOC Initiative is curated by one of the UK’s most influential drag kings, Zayn Phallic. In 2017 he set out to create a night where kings of colour were prioritised, not tokenised, after growing tired of producers excusing all-white line-ups with the claim that ‘there just aren’t enough kings of colour to book’. Both with their undeniable talent and the sheer quantity of kings that have been featured on the KOC stage, The KOC Initiative shatters this myth with power, passion and positivity.  

UNMISSABLE CABARET 
Radical, raunchy, silly, sensational – The KOC Initiative has been home to award-winning and critically acclaimed performers, who have been featured in both national and international media and shared stages with stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race. As the KOC Initiative they have wowed and delighted audiences at prides, festivals and sold-out shows across the country. Whether it be showstopping lipsync, comedy, dance, burlesque, circus, song or even a magic trick or two – you’re guaranteed to see some of the UK’s hottest drag acts on the KOC stage. 

GET READY Expect a wild ride of laughs, tears, politics and empowerment in a joyful celebration of drag kings of colour at one of the country’s queerest, wittiest and most politically on point drag shows.   

KOC FAMILY Dedicated to enabling queer people of colour to have access to drag that actually represents them, at least 10% of the tickets for each show are available as Pay What You Can for qpoc who would find the ticket prices financially inaccessible. These tickets are in part funded by donations from audience members which ensures that KOC performers are still paid what they deserve (so yes, you can come to the KOC Initiative for free if you need to.)*   

SAFER SPACES The KOC Initiative is a queer-phobia-, racism-, misogyny- and harassment-free zone both on and off stage. Please see our safer spaces policy and our access guidelines for more information of what you can expect from us, and what we expect from you in order to keep this a spectacular, inclusive and joyful space for all involved.   

TAKING THE POWER BACK A gleeful antidote to the erasure, diminishing and tokenisation of art by bodies of colour in drag, this ground-breaking initiative is an essential and celebratory night of king cabaret of the highest calibre. Be a part of the Initiative: Book your tickets now.

Swing Through The Looking Glass - with Duncan Hemstock's All Stars

Swing Through The Looking Glass - with Duncan Hemstock's All Stars

Was it all just a dream?

Swing Through The Looking glass is a night of excellent jazz music, cocktails, socialising, and the occasional swing dance or two.

It was born out of Serena Rizzo’s desire for a night which gathered the most inspiring jazz musicians and dancers under the same roof.

The night is hosted at The Looking Glass Cocktail Club, a very charming speakeasy which makes the night more special by granting a cozy and atmospheric vibe.

After two very successful editions with Adrian Cox and Giacomo Smith, we’re proud to invite another great horn player and dancers favourite: Duncan Hemstock (and his all stars of course).

Duncan discovered his love for the clarinet at the age of 12, when his mom gave him a Benny Goodman’s cassette. Since then, he pursued his love for jazz by studying with some of the best clarinet players like Andy Firth, who was a source of inspiration. He now lives in London but performs all over the world with some of the most renown bands who play for dancers such as Gordon Webster, Naomi Uyama, Pete Long, the Shirt Tail stompers and others. Duncan also happens to be a crowd entertainer, so get ready for some fun!

Tickets are 10 only and sold out within 24 hours last time.

Life Drawing with ELSC

Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 10.52.18.png

WHAT'S THIS? ANOTHER LIFE DRAWING CLASS IN EAST LONDON? ORGANISED BY STRIPPERS? If drawing in unusual scenarios is your thing - it doesn't get much more unusual than this... Join us for another extraordinary and genuinely inspiring life drawing class with professional striptease artists modelling. The talented dancers of the ELSC are expanding their repertoire; no longer content to save their attributes for Saturday night punters, they are now performing incredible pole routines (with the added twist of holding still) for our more artistic patrons to capture them in motion.


Due to refurbishments our usual venue is not available for a while, so we thought we'd try out a new space. Looking Glass Cocktail Club is in the heart of Shoreditch, nestled perfectly between two of the longest running strip clubs in East London, Browns and the Olde Axe. Step through the looking glass into the secret back room bar, and you'll find we have transformed the space into our very own striptease boudoir.


We are giving artists a unique opportunity to draw strippers as they perform pole dance and striptease. The classes are entirely self-organised and hosted by a group called East London Strippers Collective (ELSC), a group of strippers challenging stereotypes and societal attitudes towards strip clubs, by inviting a new audience of onlookers inside. Our doors are open to professional artists, designers, sketchers, illustrators, animators, doodlers, students and first-timers alike.


We have worked out a section of the class called "strip-freeze" - a striptease routine interspersed with one minute poses. As the model performs a strip show on stage, our class-leader calls out "Freeze!" giving the class one minute to capture the pose before the model continues moving. This section is a warm-up exercise for the class, and an intense drawing experience. Once the model is naked, the length of the poses follow a more traditional pattern, with five, ten and fifteen minutes at a time.


The class will be led but not tutored. £15 per person. All levels of ability welcome, same for gender. All materials are available for a £2 donation (free materials for students who bring photo ID).


If the class is NOT fully booked on Meetup then you can turn up and pay on the door. If the class IS fully booked on Meetup then we cannot guarantee you a place, but we always have space for a handful of walkins, so come along early.
