A custom built speakeasy was one of many surprises for the guests who flew into Marrakech for this wow factor 1920’s themed birthday party. Before dinner, guests enjoyed champagne with a Jazz band and a thrilling synchronised swimmer show. The Art Deco monochrome dining room was filled with orchids, anemones and roses, candles and crystal chandeliers and monogrammed napkins marked the place settings.
Guests were whisked by horse and carriage to a 1920’s New York street scene with vintage Rolls Royce’s into a working barber shop where they took the staff door up a fire-escape to arrive into a spectacular speakeasy complete with a swing band, casino tables, tap dancers and show-girls. After a surprise ‘happy birthday’ songstress popped out of the cake, curtains were drawn to reveal the after club complete with lazer show and DJ set by Damian Lazarus.
