Attention, attention ladies! The sauciest show in town has just hit with a sextastic splash – Cabaret supperclub Volupté has just revolutionised the way British afternoon tea should be enjoyed – big time.
Every weekend, you can enjoy tea and cakes in the sultriest way possible at the uber vintage venue Volupté in the City and get this – you can sip alcoholic flavoured tea (yep you read that right) whilst feasting your eyes on the most voluptuous girls to take to the stage since Dita Von Teese.
GO City Girl had the chance to go along to last Saturday’s 'Tea and Tassel’s' and we can confirm it is an experience you definitely don’t want to miss out on. Joining us were mostly girls who had taken the opportunity to dress up, loved up couples and a hen party dolled up to the nines with vintage 1930’s inspired wear.
After sipping on a fruit cocktail at the bar we were led down into the boudoir that is Afternoon Tease – decadent drapes and walls lined with beautiful paintings and were seated at our table which was laid out in the finest bone china.
We were served delicious finger sandwiches as we were entertained by Anthony Strong and his live band singing classics from Frank Sinatra and the likes. The absolutely hilarious French host Vicious Delicious had us in stitches in between every act, and then we were serenaded and seduced by the magnificent Polly Rae (this month’s cover girl – if you want to catch her, get to Volupté quick time!).
She was honestly one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever laid eyes on, so sultry she could reduce you into molten lava with just one simmering look whilst performing hits like ‘Sexyback’ burlesque style, a talent to be reckoned with that’s for sure.
The performers do strip down to nipple tassles and sparkly vagina patches (all very classily-done though) so if you’re going with your man, be prepared!
November-themed sweet delights include toffee apple coated with popping candy (so much fun to eat!), hazelnut macaroons, fiery chocolate brownies and of course the classic buttery scones with clotted cream and jam.
We tried out the much anticipated alcoholic tea: Amarettea – Amaretto infused with Earl Grey tea and double cream and also the Hot Toddy – a cinnamon, orange and scotch infused delight – both were divine interventions that were the perfect accompaniment to such an enjoyable show.
