Svetlana & The Delancey Five - New York

This sort of evening doesn’t happen twice! If you like swing and Prohibition-era jazz classics - this event is for you!

ASW Events Team
ASMALLWORLD invites members to The Back Room Speakeasy where Svetlana & The Delancey Five will be playing hot swing and Prohibition-era jazz classics. Come and enjoy the evening while watching dancers jumping and jiving the night away (bring your dancing shoes!)

About the Venue:
An original speakeasy that operated during Prohibition, the Back Room maintains an old-time feel, serving you cocktails in teacups and bottles of beers in paper bags. Its hidden entrance is the same one that was used more than 80 years ago. There's even another room hidden within the bar, behind a trick bookcase.

ACCESS EVENT: This event is organised by a third party and no ASMALLWORLD representative will be present during the event. Should you have any questions regarding this event, please contact the ASMALLWORLD Events Team directly at: events@asw.com.

The Back Room is one of only two speakeasies in New York City that operated during Prohibition and is still in existence today. It is a timeless example of the underbelly of New York past. The original 1920’s speakeasy, known simply as “The Back of Ratner’s,” played host to many theatre and movie actors of the “Roaring Twenties,” as well as famous gangsters of the era. These gangsters included Bugsy Siegel, Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky. They were known to use the space for “business meetings".
