White Mink - 1920s Speakeasy Brighton

White Mink and the fabulous Nick Hollywood 'White Mink Black Cotton' put this club night on in Brighton, it is now going to be every first Saturday of the month at the Green Door Store, it's under the railway arches.

It was such a good vibe, the audience were incredibly responsive and the whole night had a really raw and bohemian feel. Lots of people dressed in ornate costumes and everyone made a real effort to get the atmosphere just right. It really did feel like the gin was in bath tubs and the rozzers were just round the corner ready for a bust.

Manouche were the main band of the night and they were a very slick and very talented group of musicians, and a really nice bunch. With old swing numbers and Django Reinhardt tributes they got the crowd jumping about and smiling.

A brilliant night and a fantastic Vibe, will be back there again soon hopefully!!
