It’s the 1920’s in here!
Hidden inside an old bank is the hottest spot on the strip.
Its prohibition time, an era of secrecy and excess and you have the secret password….
Hang out the front when you arrive, but look busy, we don’t want those cops spotting you. Look for the heavy lurking in the shadows. If he approaches you, have your guard up. Is he a cop? He’ll ask you a series of questions, play it cool and drop the secret code in conversation to be sure. Once he motions you to the secret door. Slip inside, but don’t be seen.
Down the dirty alley, and through the second check point.
Leave your guns at the door and get ready to party prohibition style!
NOW HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW…
-The dress code is simple- Girls in pearls. Guys in ties.
The cat who owns the joint will be wanting to meet you, get ready for a chat and a dance if your game.
Be friendly and obey the rules, but most importantly, have fun!
The rules are it’s the 1920’s and there aren’t rules, this is a speakeasy….… except if the cops arrive, then hide your drinks and walk in a straight line or you’ll blow the whole operation.
Here is what we have for you…
We got some real nice fellas who will have a drink ready for you when you arrive, to calm those jitters.
Now your first drink is on us, but ask you waiter for some help with the next few, they’ll have some tips for big drinking.
Your waiters will be bringing you food all night. If you like something ask for more!
You can check out the kinds of foods we’ll be serving you here à http://slide.com.au/theginmillsocialmenu/
We have some sexy guys and dolls that will keep the party lively, they’ll be doing some aerial performance, sultry burlesque and vaudeville just for you. It’ll be happening when you least expect, and we ain’t paying ‘em, so give them a clap to keep them happy.
THE MAIN EVENT….
The first thing you will hear on arrival is the authentic 1920′s sounds of Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters singing songs of the day with genuine old school flair and styling.
While your dinner is being served you will be serenaded by the The Emma Hamilton Trio. Emma brings a European flavour to the night, and quickly heats things up to become the swinging-est band on the scene. They’ll have you up and dancing faster than we can scream “RAID”.
- The party begins at 7pm sharp.
- Food is served banquet style: something for sharing, something for sampling, and something for no one but you.
- Eat as much or as little as you like.
The Gin Mill Social is perfect for a birthday, anniversary dinner, meet with the in-laws, hang with the outlaws, or simply to reconnect with old friends.
Candles are lit. Lights are low. Conversations are loud. It’s a lively atmosphere.
Feast, dance and play!

A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON
GIN MILL (noun) – 1920’s slang for an establishment where hard liquor is sold. Tavern consisting of a building with a bar and public rooms. A room or establishment where drinks and meals are served.
SOCIAL (adj) – A party of people assembled to promote sociability and communal activity. A group of people gathered together for pleasure.
HISTORY – A speakeasy was an establishment that illegally sold alcoholic beverages in an age of Prohibition. These establishments came into prominence in the United States during 1920’s. During this time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal. Speakeasies were so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or even inside it, so as not to alert the police.
