Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Dance with the green fairy at this new absinthe-doused soirée as Shoreditch Studios is transformed into a Montmartre music hall. Warm up with the absinthe-tasting classes (de rigueur in the nineteeth century, darling), which will guide you through old sugar cube and fire techniques and there'll be Baudelaire-and-Wilde-inspired antics throughout the night as circus freaks and cabaret acts, live bands and DJs make like a debauched, nineteenth century Parisian salon. DC: 'Choleric Courtesan or Tortured Artist'. Men should emulate Toulouse Lautrec's diminutive style and cultivate the 'starving in a garret' look, or Parisian bourgeoisie, while ladies should go for big hair, corsets, feathers and risqué hemline.
