Studio Paradiso invites you to forget the outside world for one night, where nobody cares who you are as long as you are fabulous. In our secret Manhattan loft, you’re invited to let love life as a pianist in black tie plays in the background while you drink cocktails with your new best friend. An otherworldly singer serenades you as you dine on fine foods, and you find yourself sharing a bottle of Champagne with the hottest circus act in town.
Following the massive success of their 5-star cocktail bar in a pie and mash shop on Walthamstow market, ‘one of London’s cult drinking experiences’ (Time Out), The Jellied Eel presents a new immersive winter pop up that will harness the spirit of Studio 54 and 1970s Manhattan.
A massive retro camper van provides the backdrop to a cosy winter space filled with 70s furniture, fur rugs, a vintage word burner, disco ball, and superb period warehouse features. Performers include Silvia Pavone, who, after running away to the circus as a teenager, has become a world-class hula hoop star, using cutting edge LED technology to create an unforgettable, multi-dimensional visual experience. Her television appearances have included the John Bishop show. The house pianist, Adam Sopp, is an actor and musician who has appeared in BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning productions, including Sunny Afternoon and Last Night in Soho.
It wouldn’t be the 70s or winter without fondue. And at Studio Paradiso, the fondue is made with an exceptional ingredient: Champagne! Layered into the Comté, Gruyère and Emmental, the Heidsieck Monopole Brut Grand Cuvée takes the fondue to new heights. All served with classic accoutrements and optional charcuterie boards; the fondue is presented in vintage fondue sets.
As well as Champagne from drinks partner Heidsieck Monopole, the cocktail menu will include a Winter Negroni using Aquavit and Pedro Ximenez sherry, a Walnut Old Fashioned, and Hot Buttered Rum. Heidsieck is a Grand Marque Champagne, with its heritage going back to 1785. Internationally recognised the world over, Heidsieck is proud to be poured this winter in association with The Jellied Eel.
