This summer, we're hitting up the dance-floor! For a limited series of very special, one-off evenings, we'll be turning Oriole into a swinging, luxurious cocktail World Music discothéque. Evoke the world of the Copacabana in '59 or Whisky-a-Gogo in '60 and enjoy the rare delight of world-class cocktails & music together while dancing into the wee hours.
Up first, the Copita Club in partnership with George Clooney’s tequila of choice, Casamigos, will be a deliriously decadent Mexican fiesta held on Cinco De Mayo. We’ll be serving up our Chihuahua and Quintana Roo cocktails along with margaritas, sangritas and traditional copitas to sip that mezcal from. Splash out and enjoy decadent seated table service in our lounge area with a group of friends (including a complimentary Sharing Cocktail for the table!) or don your dancing shoes and swing down for a standing ticket for cocktails & dancing.
9- 11pm / Live music by the Voodoo Love Orchestra
Harking back to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America via the back streets of New Orleans, the infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music of Voodoo Love Orchestra will have the crowd baying for more. This is more an invasion than a performance, with a euphoric riot of musicians weaving in and out of the throng. Delving deep into the heart of the tropics, this globe-trotting ensemble play a whole range of pan-Atlantic sounds: Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, New Orleans Jazz + Mississippi Blues. The musical melange of relentlessly syncopated beats and squealing trumpets is an abundantly joyous salute to the roots of carnivale!
11pm - Late / Set from the reknowned DJ Dom Servini
Dom has been filling dance floors since the early 1990s with his beautifully blended, open minded mix of music steeped in soul, jazz and funk. From the early days of his Brighton residency with DJ Snowboy, his infamous late 90s Mouseorgan club events, to a decade and a half DJing under the Wah Wah 45s banner, Dom has become something of a clubbing institution. Dom’s sets are best extended and forward thinking, taking in latin, disco, jazz, electronica and everything in between.
You can book a Standing or Dinner and Dancing (Seated) Ticket at your choice of arrival time.
We will be running normal service early evening until 8pm, serving a reduced menu of concoctions featuring the brand alongside our bar snacks menu.
