On Friday 22nd May from Bourne and Hollingsworth comes Playback: The 90s Party, a weekend of parties that will recreate the distinctive sounds, looks and tastes of the 1990s.
Rewinding the years to a decade that all of us know and some of us can just remember, Playback: The 90s Party gives creds to the fashion, music and films that made a generation and has now inspired London’s most recent copycat trends. With special guest performances and curated live music, this party will present the true sounds of the decade, while setting the scene with the coolest 90s inspired drinks, décor, and fashions.
For the weekend, an East London warehouse will be transformed into the ultimate 90s party venue, with a style and atmosphere reminiscent of something in between The Viper Room, Ministry Of Sound, and Supernova Heights. Featuring two large party spaces, the warehouse will be decked out with a games room inspired by the era of the Nintendo, dance podiums fit for Madonna, and a huge screen showcasing 90s classic films and VJ mash-ups.
Throughout the evening, partygoers can drink at one of the multiple cocktail flaring bars, challenge their highest score at Pacman, push it to Salt ‘n’ Pepa, get loaded to Primal Scream, or body pop to Run DMC as part of a 90s break dance stand-off. A hair and make-up stand will also be available, channelling some of the most famous looks of the decade.
Music throughout the evenings will be a mixtape of DJ classics, with tunes that suite any grunge groupie, pop princess, and hip-hop homie. Specially curated live music, including special guest headline acts from the decade will keep party people on the dance floor until the early hours. Cocktail experts, Bourne and Hollingsworth, will be taking guests on a trip down memory lane, rewriting history and putting a modern spin on the hazy recollections of frozen daiquiris, pina coladas, wibbles, and blue lagoons.
Guests are encouraged to dress for the part, channelling their inner grunge child, rock God, preppy freshman, low slung rap star or technicolour raver. Girls, choose plenty of lipliner, bindis, and your best slip dresses, bodysuits and high waisted denim. Guys, it’s all about flannel, ripped jeans, Adidas tracksuits, acid brights and bucket hats. See you there.
