The Legendary Blitz Club gets celebrated at the Café de ParisGet ready for a blast from the past, in a night set in the iconic Cafe de Paris with performers, production and the DJs that set the scene back in the '80s. This is not a retro event, it is a full reboot to take you back in time.
The Blitz was hugely important in the emergence of the music and fashion that would go on to dominate the '80s. During 1979 and 1980 a bunch of artistic and creative young people, united by their love of the music and fashion of Roxy Music and Davie Bowie, would attend the weekly club night in Covent Garden. Hosted by Steve Strange, it was here that the New Romantic movement would emerge and bands such as Visage and Spandau Ballet would go on to have worldwide hits.
The evening will be hosted by London nightlife legend Tommy Mack (The King Of Clubs) and features Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet, Jennie Bellstar, Martin Degville’s Sigue Sigue Sputnik and more. A celebration of the spirit of creativeness as well as nostalgia for a time when the fashionable young wouldn’t settle for the humdrum, this is the night for any true '80s fan.
Over 18s only. Valid ID required. Dress code: dress up, but cool '80s is fine.
