Party Like it's 1920's, in true Gatsby Style

Men grab your three-piece suits and Fedora hats, Women pull out the feathers and the pillbox hats - you're stepping back in time with modern day mobsters and molls.

Every year almost 4000 gangsters, molls and flappers come to the Gangsters' ball show in Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane. They share a fun night where the Gangsters ball brings to life fashion, style, humour and classic entertainment of the 1930s and 1940s.

You will get to share cabaret, vaudeville, magic, burlesque and big band swing - it is certainly an event unlike others. Each show will also feature some of Australia's best swing rockabilly and rock 'n' roll DJs.

They offer the gambling den with poker, roulette and blackjack tables, however, they will provide you with $500 worth of (not real) chips to play with and when your moneys gone, your time is up.

There will be pin up models, merchandise stalls, cocktail bars, a vintage styling parlour and the 1930s themed photo booth.

This year there is even the opportunity to win a VIP trip for 2 to see the Gangsters' Ball in Las Vegas.

The dress code is strictly 1920s to 1950s Gangsters, Flappers, Molls, Burlesque, Vintage Glamour, Dance Hall Swing & Rockabilly.

If you wish to get some photographs or your hair done you can pay a fee to do so but I suggest you go straight to the desk & sign up for it as this can book out fairly quickly.

Tickets are limited for each show to ensure sufficient dance floor space. This is an over 18's venue and you may need ID to get in.
