Tonight Josephine Waterloo


Well behaved women don't make history.

Join Josephine's gang for cocktails in Waterloo. Josephine De Beauharnais was one of history's most famous lovers. She started as a nobody but with sass, hustle and a little bit of luck, she became the Empress of the French. 

Tonight Josephine will hook you up with the night of your dreams. Available for full private hire, including daytimes and Sundays. Cocktails forever.  

One of the most instagrammed venues in the UK!

Joséphine knew what she wanted, she made her own rules and didn’t give a damn what anyone thought. She started as a nobody and became the Empress of the French.

After her first marriage ended with her husband’s brush with the guillotine, Joséphine was herself arrested but used cunning and seduction to get released the day before her own date with the blade.

Following this she lived life with the motto ‘c’est la f**king vie’ and didn’t hold back. She became a hedonistic It Girl, an unapologetic hot mess. A hit on the dance floor and great in the sack.

She got hitched to Napoleon and while he was off warmongering and womanising, she kept busy by throwing parties. She eventually joined Napoleon the night before battle only to have her advances rebuffed by him, “Not Tonight Joséphine”.

He still loved her until his death, her name being his very last word.
