Please join us for the 3rd in a series of a more intimate soirée. inspired by, and named after the 1932 film "Shanghai Express", about a colorful cast of characters (including a famous courtesan 'shanghai lily', an opium dealer, military officers, a christian missionary, and a chinese warlord) traveling from peking to shanghai. each party will take place on a different stop along the imagined route of that train, carrying our own array of intriguing characters. this month our adventure continues, to an edgy, avant garde cabaret, in the wildly subversive city of berlin, circa 1933.


Juliette Campbell started producing the time traveling, speakeasy cabaret "Shanghai Mermaid" in 2007, which kicked off both the current hot jazz and vintage party scenes, and has since spawned several smaller soirées, including her new "Shanghai Express". Shanghai Express is a decadent soirée with live hot jazz, cabaret performance, dancing, exquisite craft cocktails, small plates, and intriguingly interesting fellow guests.


$20 in advance, and $25 at the door {cash only}.


This month, the Shanghai Express will take us to berlin, where we will experience the glitter and doom of the Weimar era. We'll spend the evening in an infamous cabaret known for avant garde performance, American jazz, and as a meeting place for the edgy, the disenfranchised, and the hedonistic.
