Risqué Revue

Go on a burlesque double-date night with Risqué Revue.

Slide Lounge is an Oxford Street institution. The unassuming building at the Museum end of the iconic street features glamourous art deco style, all preserved from it’s early days as a bank in the 1930s.

The nights here are famous for going the extra mile. You may go to see theatre or art, and there is a clear distinction between the world of the venue and the world on the stage. But shows at Slide Lounge blur that boundary in all elements, whether for their speakeasy nights or degustation circus experiences. Slide’s producer Jeremy Brennan has been there for some time.

“Seven years ago I walked in there and it was snowing inside the venue for a dance party with a winter theme…I’m so excited to be there now as part of the team and continue that tradition… we do everything we can to give the most amazing, transforming, transporting experience we can,” said Brennan.

The commitment to show themes at Slide also manifest in using technology for effect. Risqué Revue is a neo-burlesque show that showcases the glamour of European clubs. Featuring dancers, aerial performances, pole work and song, it tells a story of burlesque performers wrestling for control of their fictional Parisian club from the male owner.

Think aerial antics, a wild can-can and champagne bubble baths served with French cuisine.

Every Wednesday throughout Winter. Slide Lounge, 41 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. From $89 (3 course dinner & show). Double Date Deal: $365 (table of 4). Tickets & info:
