Swing Out with the Old Bengal Bar and Swing Patrol:
I love Swing (to watch). I’ve never learnt to Swing Dance before, but next week I’m going to get the chance. I’m going along to a Swing Dance Lesson and then to try Liberty Cheesesteak Company’s unique melt in the mouth rib-eye at Old Bengal Bar in the City. I have this strange feeling I’m going to be like one of those ‘not very good to the point of comical’ characters from Strictly…
With some trepidation – I haven’t tried this kind of dancing since I was at school – and I don’t remember being any good at all. But, I like a challenge, so why not!
I’ll report back afterwards, but since this event is only running till the end of August, I thought it was worth running a preview, so any of you who would like to try too, can book and come along. The sessions run from 6pm to 8pm in the East India Company warehouse near Liverpool Street, on Friday and Saturday evenings only. Afterwards, The nearby Old Bengal Bar serves Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches and a range of American cocktails inspired by swing moves such as Swing Out, Texas Tommie, Doll Drop, Apple Jacks and Screamer.
The remaining sessions are on the 21st, 28th, 29th August from 6pm to 8pm. The Liberty Cheesesteak Company will be at Old Bengal Bar then too, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
Swing Classes at Old Bengal Bar are free of charge. Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches cost £9.50 and American cocktails cost £8.50
