8 TO THE BAR, a new retro club brought to you by the lovely people at Bellehoppers. The first event takes place on Friday 5th March at Belfast's Black Box from 7.30pm to midnight. The night will kick off with a free basic swing dance class at 7.45pm to help you take to the floor. Then with DJs spinning the coolest tunes you can enjoy the atmosphere or dance Charleston to happy jazz, Lindy to big band swing or get down and dirty to the blues.
Dressing up for the occasion is encouraged so get your best vintage outfit out of the closet and girls apply lashings of red lipstick. Don't have a vintage frock? Don't worry as there are several places in Belfast that can help - Best Vintage on Ann Street, Bang Boutique on Church Lane (opposite Muriel's Bar), Rusty Zip on Botanic Avenue and Oxfam Vintage on Castle Street.
And with the following 8 TO THE BAR date set for 15th May there is no excuse not to get all frocked up in vintage as Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fairs will be appearing at the Belfast Empire on Sundays 7th March and 11th April and at the Holiday Inn on 9th May.
Admission to 8 TO THE BAR costs £5 and is payable at the door.
