City Hotel & Red List: Vintage Burlesque Showcase, Sydney (15 Sept 2010)

347 Kent Street, Sydney NSW 2000

Tease, glamour and canapés

The last time I visited nicely renovated Kent Street Living Room was for Chocolatesuze's Birthday but this time Red List and the City Hotel lured me back with free canapés and a showcase of three Sydney Burlesque performers. Ms. Brianna Bluebell (Miss Burlesque NSW), Danica Lee (Miss Burlesque Sydney) and Holly Ja'Doll (The Peel) all performed twice to a fully rsvped event. The Vintage Burlesque show thankfully kept on time to it's schedule and $10 cocktails were on offer which unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try. Risotto-style arancini balls were excellent which seemed to be crumbed with crunchy panko and I think used pumpkin inside. Marinated prawns on cucumber were tasty and reminded me of 70s style cucumber base canapés. A fair amount of Pizza came out later in the night and to finish off the delicious Chocolate truffles hit the sugar spot. To keep in the loop with exclusive offers and free events check out Red List.
