Fall head first into temptation and allow for your senses to go on a whimsical ride as you taste delicious themed cocktails, smell appetising aromas, feel the luxurious texture of your decadent velvet dress or satin bow tie and watch in awe as our performers command the stage, leaving you wanting more.

The burlesquers on the CLASSIQUE bill are:

Chris Olwage - Internationally acclaimed performance artist, and NZ's own Black Swan.

with pre-show VIP entertainment by cabaret soul singer Carmen Kilss.


Event starts: 10:30pm

Cassette Nine Wandabar

Carrying on from the decadence of CLASSIQUE and to launch the official opening of the Wandabar (formally known as the back bar) in style, we invite audience members to indulge in the sensual pleasures of high brow erotic burlesque with our second event: EROTIQUE. The swan song of the evening, EROTIQUE is the official after party of CLASSIQUE with pop up installations by Duchess deBerry, Carmen Kilss and Zylah in a intimate setting.


Want to go pull out all the stops? Be sure to purchase yourself a strictly limited VIP ticket for $50.00pp + BF, which includes a seat at either a cabaret table or booth with the best seats in the house and pre-show entertainment by Carmen Kilss. Plus, you can choose from a house drink or a glass of bubbles to wash down your table/booths delectable antipasto platter. Otherwise, corral your best pal, dress to impress and nab yourself one of our GA tickets for $25.00pp + BF. Why not make a night of it and bring a whole ensemble! Tickets available to purchase via Eventfinda. One tickets gains entry into both events.

Prizes for best dressed. Dress up is encouraged, but not compulsory. Dress code for the evening is 'Glitz and Glamour'. Themed teapots and cocktails will be available for purchase. Official event photography will be provided by Jocelen Janon Photography and Too Much Yang.
