The Club: El Tucan

For a moment it feels like time has stopped as the crowd holds its breath collectively. Then it hits, a wave of aesthetic and sonic pleasure that seduces the senses. The lights go up, the details of your surroundings are fully illuminated for the first time, creamy tropical palettes, crushed velvet accents, and glittering chandeliers.

Four mesmerising dancers line the stage, dressed in peacock blue feathers and crystal bikinis. They are accompanied by a 12-piece Latin Grammy award-winning Orchestra that fills the air instantly with electricity. There is an eight-course meal, cocktails and entertainment but more importantly, for one night El Tucan offers a window to a lost era. One that would knock Jay Gatsby’s socks off.
