Last night revelers and burlesque connoisseurs from all over the city headed down to the Meatpacking District for the one year anniversary of the French eatery, Brasserie Beaumarchais’ weekly night of burlesque, Nuit Blanche. The glamorous atmosphere of Beaumarchais on a Wednesday evening is an exciting, eye candy-filled way to finish out Hump Day. With flowing bottles of champagne, French fare, and alluring burlesque performances by New York nightlife sensation, Dances of Vice this is one dinner party that is not to be missed. The dancers, described as being a “decadent menagerie of illustriously costumed dancers” change weekly, in accordance to a weekly theme with a sultry tone, to entertain and titillate diners and bar patrons. Past themes of Nuit Blanche includes Film Noir, Pretty in Plumes, and Moonglow.
Setting the mood and flavor of the evening was Dandy Wellington and His Band who serenaded the crowd with his upbeat jazz tunes before, and in between, the dancer’s sets. Last night’s performers included Southern Rosy Cheeks with her seductive red boa, the upbeat and fun Painted Ladies French Can-Can girls, Cassandra the Brazilian flamingo dancer with her large pink feathered wingspan, and more. Performances start at 8:30 and continue on until 10 pm. The general public is always encouraged to enjoy the party, especially the beautiful, sultry burlesque dancers, while standing at the bar sipping libations, no reservation required. Dinner reservations can be made for Beaumarchais’ light Provençal French a la carte menu, by giving the restaurant a ring.
