Juliette Campbell started producing the time traveling, speakeasy cabaret "Shanghai Mermaid" in 2007, which kicked off the current hot jazz scene, the vintage party scene, and new york's immersive party phenomenon. Shanghai Mermaid has since spawned several smaller soirées, including "Shanghai Express", which happens exclusively at The Django, and the monthly "Moonlight and Music on the Hudson" which happens monthly on the Clipper City sailboat, May through October.
