Get ready to party like there’s no tomorrow at Kettner’s on Friday 2nd October 2015 at a night of WW2 inspired revelry!

Following on from the sell-out success of our first Lights Out in April, our upper two floors will once again be transformed into a fun-filled celebration of wartime London after dark. Get your victory curls and high heel shoes on, turn out in military finery but don’t be surprised to get lipstick on your collar, and prepare to jitterbug the night away at a party inspired by roaring 40's dance halls and the home front’s famous neighbourly spirit!

What to expect on the night? Union jacks, sandbags, oil lamps and searchlights. A wartime inspired ‘Home Front Menu’ served with a contemporary fine dining twist. Tom Collins cocktails served in tin cups at our authentic naval bar. The opportunity to fiddle your ration books or catch a celebrity visiting an air-raid shelter incognito, in our interactive theatre games. Dance classes from Swing Patrol, rousing renditions of old classics with Tom Carradine's Cockney Sing-a-long.  Stylish routines and cabaret shenanigans from Kettner’s favourite host: Champagne Charlie, Gracie (Gracie & The G-Spots) and showgirl sirens Betsy RoseRuby Deshabille and Esquire DeLune.  Not to mention a cabaret invasion by golden-age crooner Frank Sanazi!  Gentlemen juggling from Florian Brooks, heart-thumping live music from Oompah Brass quintet and clandestine performances by adorable close harmony trio group The Hoochie Toots!  If that wasn’t enough our house band The Kings Cross Hot Club are guaranteed to get you Lindy-hopping the night London’s finest gramophone manipulators The Bees Knees will be playing on into the wee small hours.

Dressing up is not compulsory but is strongly encouraged -  we want YOU to use your imagination! Dress code inspirations: allied forces chap, GI visiting for one night only, munitions factory girl on a rare night off, ladies of the women’s auxiliary corps.

Kettner’s has lived, surviving four kings and a queen, the blitz, several booms and more than a few busts, Kettner’s has seen it all and is an integral part of the vibrant, glamorous and debauched Soho we know and love today. Originally a series of four Georgian town houses, Kettner’s was first opened as a restaurant by Auguste Kettner, (chef to Napoleon III) in 1867. Popular with deliciously colourful characters of the time including Oscar Wilde, Edward VII, Lillie Langtry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby, Kettner’s was renowned for hosting incredibly risqué parties.



Something of a Soho institution, Kettner's comes with quite the pedigree. Since its opening as a restaurant in 1867, Kettner's has welcomed the likes of Oscar Wilde, Edward VII, Lille Longhry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby into its stunning midst, and has outlived four kings and one queen, the blitz…
