Dust off your best flapper dress or pinstriped suit, because a monthly prohibition party is headed to Sydney shores. The Blind Barber is a speakeasy-style pop-up by the Beyond Cinema folk — who also brought The Greatest Showman circus soirée to a secret Sydney location, an extravagant Great Gatsby party to a mansion in northern Sydney, the Mad Hatter's tea party to the Botanic Gardens and recreated Titanic on Sydney Harbour. Now, the group will throw its first non-film-inspired party, and it'll go down every month starting on Saturday, October 19.

There will be casino tables to gamble at, bootleg cocktails to sip on and dancing all night long — with live bands playing jazz and throwback 1920s hits. And you can expect to bump into some of the period's most notorious characters, gangsters and crooks while you're at it.

Beyond Cinema's Great Gatsby event.

As with all Beyond Cinema events, lavish dress-ups are a must — for this one, think flapper dresses, bob hairdos, feather boas, pinstriped suits and suspenders. While the party's exact location will be kept under wraps (as usual), we do know that it'll be near North Sydney in an underground space, with plenty of secret rooms and tunnels to explore.

Entry is $30 per person, or you can nab one of two packages on offer: canapés and cocktails for $65 per person, or the VIP dining experience, which takes place in a secret underground chamber and includes a three course feast for $90.

The October edition of the Blind Barber will be the first in a monthly series of these secret parties. To be the first in the know and to purchase tickets, sign up here.

The first Blind Barber pop-up will take place on Saturday, October 19. General admission tickets with go on sale at 9am on Friday, June 7 via the website.
