Lady Lou L’amour and Fay Loren

More than a dozen local and international artists will showcase vintage style and surprising new acts.

Onstage, you'll see the likes of body positivity queen Bustie La Tish, powerhouse Miss Behave, drag/burlesque performer Eve Fatale, Boylesque by the American Chocoloate Show Boy, Lady Lou L’amour, a mystical Medusa act by the English Lily Lustre, and many more (TBA). As the pièce de résistance, Fay Loren will shine in her gigantic champagne glass, surrounded by breathtaking show dancers. With her glamorous and empowering burlesque shows, she has conquered the world, from Las Vegas to Istanbul.

Burlesque boasts a rich tradition, and although it often revolves around seduction, the emphasis is not on unveiling but on tantalizing and variety. Sometimes sensuous but never vulgar.


Between the performances and after the show, we invite you to dance, flirt, and savor refreshing drinks and chic cocktails. The Retro and Vintage Burlesque Beats spun by the most seasoned DJs in this genre will further elevate the atmosphere, transforming the night into an exceptional celebration.


Come Dressed to impress and step into this nightclub setting. As the Candy Girls delight the audience, you'll feel transported to the glamorous world of a Hollywood musical or a film-noir/glamour film set, as if Marilyn Monroe and Betty Page could stroll in at any moment.
Think of movies like The Great Gatsby, Boardwalk Empire, Peaky Blinders, Moulin Rouge, and Babylon.
Dress styles: golden-era Hollywood, risqué renaissance, or masked madness. From the roaring 20s, fabulous 40s, and the playful 50s to the seductive 60s, you become an integral part of the show!
