Live Music, Something A Little Different, Fun Time Partying
City of London
Over 18

 Let 1960s icon Emma Peel guide you into the hedonism of Swinging London, when Britain led the world in fashion, art, music and fun, when the rich and stylish jetted to beach resorts, drove sportscars over Swiss mountains and sailed yachts into St Tropez.

No one sums up the verve of the era more than Mrs Emma Peel, the catsuited, karate-chopping amateur agent played by Diana Rigg in TV series The Avengers, foiling plots by eccentric villains in country houses, on giant chess boards and in secret laboratories, while trading flirtatious quips with her partner, the bowler-hatted gentleman spy John Steed.

This time it's a special party with a cosmic twist—pitching the aristocratic whimsy and British cool of The Avengers against the playful space-fantasy eroticism of Barbarella. Who will gain the upper hand? You decide!

Based on a comic strip, 1968 movie Barbarella starred Jane Fonda as an innocently sexual, space-travelling agent with an endless supply of glamorously impractical costumes, in a plot involving dangerous clockwork children, a blind angel, whip-wielding leather robots, a machine that kills through orgasm and a city built on a pool of liquid evil called the Mathmos. Our party will feature robot-girl burlesque from Cherry Shakewell and a prize from the Mathmos lava lamp company for the best costume!

Our party is in a penthouse club — when you arrive, take the glass elevator to the top floor where open terraces offer views over the city.

• Compere and lounge legend Count Indigo

• Live music from The Court of St James, including psychedelic hits from the Barbarella soundtrack

• DJ sets from loungecore and freakbeat god Martin Green

• Unnatural gyrations from robotic pleasure machine Cherry Shakewell

• Mind-altering light effects

• Cocktails

• Awesome views from our rootop terraces

Sadly I missed the live performances but I presume it was busier then - it was basically empty by the time I arrived, and it felt like I was just in another city bar with overpriced entry and expensive drinks. I suppose I was expecting more 60's decor to do with the theme. The music was enjoyable though. Visited Eight Moorgate on 2016-04-30

The location was lovely and the music was great. Intimate setting. We arrived late and missed the live performances so couldn't comment on that but when we got there the dozen or so people that were there seemed in really good spirits. Cocktails were about 13 pound a pop which was very pricey! The outdoor terrace was beautiful.. nice concept but we thought it would be a larger scale party than it was. More promotion needed for the next one but a nice underground party all the same! Visited Eight Moorgate on 2016-04-30

The idea was very good, but unfortunately the execution not so much. More like cramming 30 strangers in a flat and forcing them to mingle. The performers were very amateur, the host of the evening tried lifting the vibe, but couldn't help the awkward atmosphere, the place felt posh but "all fur no knickers", and the drinks really expensive. The music was really good though. Visited Eight Moorgate on 2016-04-30
