From the 24th November - 17th December Slap Ya Papa and Marbles and Ware bring you Christmas with a twist... We’re at St. Nick’s gaff. And he’s throwing one hell of a house party. The rules are spun on their head with simply bizarre consequences. Table etiquette consists of dancing on them. Ps & Qs are replaced with Gs & Ts. Expect secret corners, wild nights and a stage set up for some serious live music. A joyful mishmash of the dilapidated bohemia of the deep south meets Vaudeville strip clubs, expect secret twinkling absinthe bars, chimney’s like you’ve never seen them before and, of course, Nicky’s little grotto.
Feast with us on not 1, 2 or 3 but 12 delectable dishes to fill your stomach. The table is heaving with tasty abundance every evening for the Reveillon Feasts and on Sunday for our Roast Reveillon Lunches. Brought to you by the iconic, Louisiana-inspired pop-up Slap Ya Papa, expect singing waitresses, the best of communal dining, foot stompin’ live music and lip smackin’ flavours from the deep south. Served up by the charmingly playful characters that make up Nick’s entourage.
Every Saturday and Sunday day time will see the tunnels transformed into a big top marketplace 'The Bizarre Bazaar' where a hand-picked selection of artisanal independent traders, artists and makers will be popping up to offer you a beautiful array of Christmas wares. And some delicious winter cocktails to warm those cockles.
Slap Ya Papa... because he never cooked you food so good!
