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

The dazzling, clandestine pop-up cocktail bar with a 1920s speakeasy flavour returns for a Valentine's weekend extravaganza. As ever, it's lit entirely by candles, which is great for romance – just don't burn your sleeve/dress, as fire extinguishers aren't sexy unless they're used in a slow-mo montage.

In honour of both the patron saint of lovers and Chicago's infamous shooting in 1929, the party theme will be a mix of mobsters and lovers, or guns and roses, as the organisers succinctly put it.

There'll be bespoke cocktails served on tables covered in rose petals and machine-gun cartridge cases, live 1920s swing from Benoit Viellefon and his orchestra and other vintage tunes spun by DJs.
