Welcome to The Asylum Speakeasy, a 1930's Gatsby party where swing dancers, record enthusiasts, vintage clothing lovers and party heathens gather to party like it's 1939! Special guest dj's bring the best in various vintage styles of music in a beautiful speakeasy in Hackney. Music, dancing, friends and booze flow till 5am! 

Music, Booze and your friends. This is a vintage house party in a beautiful venue, not a regular swing dance social in a studio. The records will skip, the floor will be filled, the bar will be busy, music will be fast and it will be hot. This party isnt about just dancing, this is about being with your friends while listening to good tunes and moving your body to all types of vintage music till 5am. Dress up, relax, grab a G&T and have a chat with your swing dance friends...when the song is hot, jump in the swing-dance-mosh-pit, go should to shoulder with your siblings in rhythm.

DJ LINE UP: Details Soon- 9 hours of dancing - 30% more swing- Faster bar service- cheaper drink options- Lindy, Charleston Balboa, Shag, Cumbia, jump blues, Reggae, vintage Dancehall!- 3 floors - Dirty blues basement- Fine cocktails- Coupious amounts of taxidermy

Vintage Arts Asylum

For those who dance late into the night. Preserving the grit, authenticity and spirit of vintage dance. These dances run through our blood, and through our feet. We don't train in soulless studios, we don't chase YouTube fads. We are not looking for fans, we are looking for the passionate, the hard-dancers,scene heretics, the drinkers and the mentalists of rhythm.
