Meet Me at the Underground: A Jazz Age Soiree @ Dupont Underground
Oct 27 @ 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM

Get ready to bebop down below! Dupont Underground, the arts and cultural organization that lies beneath Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle, will host Meet Me at the Underground: A Jazz Age Soiree on Friday, October 27. The restored space will be a subterranean 1920’s-style speakeasy for the evening, with jazz musicians performing live, dramatic costumes of the era, and an art-deco-inspired beverage from neighboring Dupont restaurant, Firefly.

From 7:00-11:00 p.m., soiree attendees can dance the night away to lively tunes from jazz musician Dante Pope. International jazz vocalist Rochelle Rice will join Dante for a special performance and may even show guests how to snap their fingers like a true jazz enthusiast. Attendees are encouraged to dress the part with costumes inspired by the period.

 

Firefly’s Lead Bartender Brendan Ambrose will be composing a melodic masterpiece of his own. His riff on a jazz-era cocktail will be a feast for the senses featuring freshly-picked herbs and flowers from Firefly’s rooftop garden.

 

What’s the Secret Password?

One may argue a true speakeasy has a password, and “A Jazz Age Soiree” does not disappoint. Prior to dancing the jitterbug, partygoers are invited to Firefly for a special pre-show dinner menu. For $35, diners will receive an appetizer, an entrée, and a glass of house wine. Any guest that comes into the restaurant on Friday, October 27 with the password “UNDERGROUND” may receive the dinner deal.

 

“Meet Me at the Underground: A Jazz Age Soiree” is open to the public. Guests must be 21+ to attend. Tickets are $20 on Ticketfly, and $25 at the door.
