A secret location in central Sydney recently transformed into a Parisian club for one night only to host an evening of authentic French burlesque.

Le Burlesque Klub was imported directly from Paris by L’OR Espresso to perform for a strictly limited audience.

Guests were ushered through a secret entrance into an outdoor space and greeted by a champagne tower, French waiters and roaming performers.

Stilt walkers, aerial artists, fire breathers and dancers all roamed the faux-Parisian street setting as cocktails and canapes were passed around. One performer dangled above the crowd inside a golden hoop. Another, covered in gold glitter, lazed in an over-sized Martini glass.

Guests were led through the venue in groups and treated to intimate performances by the Parisian dance troupe, lending the evening an out-of-time elegance.

In the Le Burleqsue Klub Marquee, guests enjoyed French champagne and food at their tables while three burlesque dancers performed. Later, for the grand finale, all the performers gathered on stage for an extravagant farewell featuring burlesque dancers in shimmering gold outfits, aerial artists, projections and blasts of gold confetti.
