THE V-SPOT – CAPE TOWN’S HOTTEST ENTERTAINMENT VENUE
Since opening its doors in December 2009, Vaudeville, known to all as The V Spot, has become the Mother City’s premier entertainment destination. The 300-seater burlesque supper club is a thrill from start to finish, delighting patrons nightly with a superb combination of local and international acts, enjoyed over a three course dinner created by DISH Food and Social.
Produced by Will Hutton and Andrew Florenca of the Sunroom, the Vaudeville show is a true multi- genre entertainment experience. As audiences enter through the velvet curtains they step into a plush world of gaudy fantasy, where The Penguin rules the floor and the performers reign onstage. Transporting guests on a journey through the weird and the wonderful world that is Vaudeville, are outstanding artists such as the sultry Lu Chase, the hand-to-hand strength duo from Romania, Constantin Ciobotaru and Dan Tazlauanu; world champion Bboys Jed and Duane Lawrence, tap dancers Peter Johnson and Nick Snow, dynamic acro adagio pas de deux couple Lisa Pridgeon and Daniel Bauer, the singing To Do Sisters, Chantal Nell on rings with Natalie Stafford on the double lyra, Lloyd Kandlin performing twice in an hilarious aerial comedy act and with Justine Whyte on the single trapeze.
The Vaudeville venue in Cape Town has been conceptualised by Robert Sawyer and Tom Pearson-Adams. Sawyer, with 25 years experience in hotels, restaurants and bars, successfully floated his UK based entertainment group ‘Po Na Na’ in the 1990’s. He has turned the once unknown hotel Le Farinet in Switzerland’s Verbier into a number one Après Ski venue and Vaudeville is his 100th venue opening. His business partner Tom Pearson-Adams comes with 15 years experience in and around the European music industry with numerous international broadcast and licensing credits including the first global Ministry Of Sound DVD and introducing the sales of the George V (Buddha Bar series) label to the UK.
The venue also incorporates the Fez Club that hosts legendary DJ’s like Dino Moran, Rob Taylor, Gren Forte, Nick Matthews, Richard Marshall and Andrew F.
