A little homage for our great and unique Brazilian Artist, the phenomenal Carmen Miranda, our pride and joy.
Every time that I am homesick, I bring the Carmen’s tropicalia realm into my life. I comforts me.
Carmen also brought relief in the 40’s to all the American people while the war was being wrapped. Everyone wanted to go to Rio after falling in love with Carmen’s performance and wildly colorful South American world.
Thank you Carmen Miranda!
With the idea that LA needs a boylesque show night out, Leo and Robbie are bringing FABARET! to reality. Leopold Nunan, a true vaudevillian born and raised in Brazil, brings the carnaval wherever he performs and singer-songwriter Robbie McDonald adds a bit of torch to his special brand of indie rock. The duo have joined forces to promote a night in which curated live cabaret performances will be punctuated by sweaty dance sessions from LA’s best DJs.
The pair chose 3 Clubs in Hollywood because of its central location (midway between West Hollywood and Sunset Junction), rich history and extraordinary staff (ask the doorman about the time he met Lucille Ball next time you’re in!)
Says Robbie, “This place is all swank and glamor, just perfect for a night where LA’s hottest cabaret acts will share the stage with the city’s best DJs — and the piano sounds good too!”
Of the night, Leopold Nunan says, “We want to bring romance back to nightlife with lots of flirting, drama and sweaty dance sessions in between — all in true Hollywood style.”
3 Clubs is located at the heart of Hollywood, on Vine just north of Santa Monica Boulevard. We’ll have a wild red carpet set up at our entrance, so come dressed to impress!
