The combination of our White Mink production values and superb bands with the authentic vintage glamour of this listed theatre space is truly unique. WHITE MINK is without doubt the finest Electro Swing event in the world - VIP boxes, the very best live bands, performers and DJs and an amazing audience all make for one seriously hot party!

As ever, there is very strictly limited capacity so please buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment: We really do sell out. It isn't just hype! Invite your friends now...


"One of the UK's 3 best parties" (Mixmag)

"Sublimely decadent" (Clash Magazine)

"One helluva turbo-charged party" (Time Out)


This month STARRING:


After Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar (both of whom they've frequently supported), these guys are one of the finest Electro Swing bands in the world. Just back from a US and Canadian tour, they were already on fire when they left Europe, so we're massively excited to welcome them back to The Clapham Grand. Expect one or two very special London guests (details coming soon) and all their biggest tunes like Pump Up The Jam and Via Con Me...




The UK's answer to Postmodern Jukebox, this superb band have played with us on numerous gigs, but never on the stage at our flagship London night. Absolutely killer vintage swing band that rip into contemporary hits in superb style. Guaranteed to bring the house down, just take a look at this filmed at White Mink in Brighton:




One of our favourite producers, Jamie has released a consistently strong series of superb singles as well as brilliant remixes for loads of other people. Deep, bass-heavy sounds, inventive sampling and a commercial ear set Jamie in a class of his own. This is a rare DJ gig from one of the UK's best producers on this scene.




The less you know about this the better! A darkly comic and strangely compelling duo who capture the spirit of 1930's Weimar Berlin (setting of the musical 'Cabaret') in a sexy, funny and beautifully strange act that blends quirky characters and unique world class juggling. Between them Rodney and Alexandra have won awards at the Edinburgh Festival, the Paris Music Hall Festival and the World Juggling Championship. They also completely stole the show at the White Mink Spiegeltent in Bristol last year... we are delighted to bring them to London.


Described as a 'suave impressario' by The Independent and 'the godfather of Electro Swing' by The Telegraph, Nick is behind the Freshly Squeezed record label, Radio Show and in particular, the award-winning WHITE MINK : BLACK COTTON compilation series...



One of the signature elements of a White Mink night, maverick AV genius of crazy light-bending inventions and trickery. Gerred has created visuals for us but is also behind the success of people like Public Service Broadcasting and lots, lots more...


★ As ever, expect high production values, amazing music, world-class performers, a fantastic atmosphere and surprises galore!

We were named by Mixmag as the second best party in the UK. As the originators of a speakeasy and swing revival, we are proud to be "taking clubland by storm" (The Daily Telegraph). We founded London's Electro Swing Club which blew up into a world-wide phenomena and are responsible for the eponymous, album-charting White Mink : Black Cotton (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz) CD series. We curate numerous amazing festival stages annually from Glastonbury's Shangri La to Bestival's Spiegeltent, Latitude to Wilderness and we continue to promote sell-out UK shows by bands like Parov Stelar and Caravan Palace.

The Grand The Grand

The Grand is more than a Victorian-era listed building in London: it’s an icon of the city’s cultural...


White Mink

WHITE MINK is the zeitgeist-capturing speakeasy where the sounds and styles of the 1920s and 30s are turned on their head and smuggled into the 21st century.

Brilliant night with great atmosphere. Everyone got into the spirit of it with their costumes. Some really good ones. Nice touch with the dancers who were brought in to encourage people to take to the floor and great to watch. Loved the live bands really got people moving. Just wish there was a slightly better drink selection at the bar. Only one kind of gin was available and other options limited. Samdo visited The Grand on 31 Mar 2016

Quite simply Europe (if not the World's...) finest Electro Swing night out. Great bands (even Parov Stelar and Caravan Palace did their first UK gigs here), burlesque, cabaret DJ's and a fun dressed-up crowd make for an electric atmosphere... check their videos!
