Opium Den: The Blue Lotus
What we did: Entering through the sleazy back-streets, visitors arrived into a bustling street scene outside Stockton Street’s Chinese laundry in Downtown San Francisco. They’d then have to charm irritable Gatekeeper ‘Miss Kinjue Li’ to gain access into The Den. Once inside, guests enjoyed some of the wildest immersive entertainment inspired by the era, including the opportunity for a private consultation with ‘Dr. O’ or a sensual rub-down from ‘Misty Woo’.
What they ate: Street-food vendors served guests sumptuous traditional Chinese Dim Sum and Monkey Shoulder cocktails.
What they drank: Gin & tonic, Lapsang souchong Iced tea, Lemon drop, Manhattans.
Who came: London’s inquisitive food, drink and theatre fanatics.
Themed 50th Birthday Party
What we did: Shuttlecock Inc. divided the Downstairs space at Carousel into four areas, each one representing a different city Anne had lived in. Guests first entered into an old fashioned London Gentleman's Club. There they mingled amongst actors playing the stereotypical stuffy characters you’d expect to find in Mayfair’s Jermyn Street. The next big reveal threw guests into the heart of bustling Lan Kwai Fong district in Hong Kong. Awash with colorful lanterns and blinking neon signs, Anne’s friends ordered dim sum from street food stalls and had their fortune told by Pinky Poon-Li, the characterful fortune teller. From there guests moved through to the Moscow state circus’s Big Top where they were met by the World’s Strongest Man and a ballerina on the run from Moscow’s notoriously ruthless national ballet. Lastly, guests made their way into a Manhattan speakeasy run by shady New Jersey gangster “Jonny Two-Fists Fitzgerald” and his two sparkly-dressed harlots. Here a three piece band got everyone dancing.
What they ate: Food and drink inspired by each of the cities Anne had lived in….
London: Confit duck, pickled walnuts and parsley. Cucumbers marinated in in herb oil with almonds and crispy garlic
Hong Kong: Steamed squid dumplings with ponzu Peking duck pancakes, Stir-fried egg noodles, Chinese spinach, peanuts and chilli.
Moscow: potato and pickled red cabbage salad, King crab, dill and pickled shallots
New York: New York Cheese Cake
What they drank: Gin & tonic, Lapsang souchong Iced tea, Lemon drop, Manhattans
Who came: Anne’s international jet-set friends from all four cities!
Cockney Knees Up Immersive Event
What we did: Shuttlecock Inc. built a fictional 1960s east-end boozer The Cobbler’s Awls in the Downstairs space to create the set of the Cockney Knees Up wedding reception venue. Guests arrived at Nikki and Micky’s wedding via lecherous Uncle Jimmy’s market stall and were given a welcome back of pork scratchings as well as a final opportunity to buy a last minute wedding gift for the happy couple. Local, pub regular (and full-time gangster) Al Ritchie serenaded guests with classic 60s pop songs while wedding guests mingled and munched on pork and lemon sausage rolls. Once the (heavily pregnant) bride arrived at her reception, guests moved through to the function room for speeches, traditional pub-wedding grub, a dance contest and a whole host of other cockney-style shenanigans
What they ate: Roast pork belly, mushy peas, mustard mash and trifle
Who came: Immersive event lovers from all over London
Nautical 18th Birthday
What we did: The Carousel events team transformed the Downstairs space into a Coco Chanel-inspired 1950s Saint Tropez seaside setting. The industrial space was unrecognisable - concrete walls were replaced with brightly coloured beach-hut backdrops, fishing nets, knotted ropes, vintage life vests, seashells and a ‘Seaside Sally’ for guests to pose for photographs. Sitting on long trestle tables made from reclaimed wood – beautifully decorated with beach-themed paraphernalia, the Carousel team went the extra mile by providing guests with miniature bottles of sand for guests to write a personal ‘message-in-a-bottle’ to the birthday girl. Carousel staff were kitted out in sailor-stripes and neckerchiefs.
What they ate: We served a seasonal 3-course menu to Olivia’s 80 guests.
