Sweetie darlings, prepare yourselves, because beloved 90s sitcom Absolutely Fabulous is finally hitting the big screen – and to celebrate, one Shoreditch bar is getting in the Bolly for a takeover night.
On July 6, the Leonard Street bar is putting on a befittingly outrageous night of decadent fun for fans of the popular BBC series, which starred Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley.
In keeping with the camp style of the series, expect plenty of lively games and entertainment during The Absolutely Fabulous Takeover, including a ‘Blindfolded Lippy Challenge’, an ‘Ab Fab Fabstacle Course’ and a ‘Fash-Off Catwalk’ for the “best dressed” party-goers.
But this is no place for finery – organisers are encouraging guests to don outlandish fashion disasters, to pay homage to the often questionably-dressed Eddy and Patsy.
Meanwhile, devoted fans of the show will want to test their trivia knowledge with the bespoke ‘Ab Fab Quiz’.

Fittingly, the bubbles will be flowing and cocktails will be in ample supply throughout the evening.
Anyone who’s anyone should head down to The Book Club next week, darling.
