A Glasgow institution is drawing its velvet curtains for the last time, as the infamous Club Noir hosts its final ever night to ring in the New Year. The self-proclaimed “grandest New Years Eve spectacle in the UK,” Club Noir brings its renowned fusion of burlesque, music and cabaret with a glamorous send off to 2017. Since 2004, the great burlesque club present their vintage, retro and modern soundtrack alongside some trademark tassel twirling, human curiosities, burlesque shows and more for the last time, following a long and successful run.
Club Noir’s annual Hogmanay celebration, this year entitled “Moulin Noir,” will no doubt be a bittersweet affair – so by all means get yourself a ticket and indulge in some glam debauchery one last time. Expect the club night’s usual array of pulse-racing burlesque and Pin Up Parlour, Morag Antoinette, bagpipers, French showgirls, queerlesque and boylesque performances acrobatics and singing and much more.
There are few other club nights as renowned as Club Noir – which has hosted the likes of Channing Tatum, Vanessa Paradis and Helena Bonham Carter – which promote such inclusion and diversity. The inclusion of boylesque and queerlesque alone indicate the club night’s passion for putting on a show and celebrating queer performance. Hopefully Club Noir has inspired another aspiring burlesque promoter to take the mantle.
The evening takes place on Sunday 31st December at O2 ABC on Sauchiehall Street. Tickets are £22 and dress code is as follows: strictly no jeans or trainers. Head to their website for a look at their suggestions, which range from diamonds, Scottish, military, burlesque, punk and even more. Let your imagination go wild and make an effort for the legendary Club Noir’s final curtain call.
