Summer 2006 will see the launch of Smirnoff & the Electric Cabaret – an exhilarating new concept in nightlife that stands for an eclectic mix of original entertainment and is set to re-invent the night out. Having begun the season in Ibiza’s trendiest haunt Es Vive, where better to bring the Smirnoff & The Electric Cabaret excitement before its global roll-out than to the very heart of Birmingham’s entertainment district.
Smirnoff & the Electric Cabaret are mixing up high energy talent, including some acts from the renowned Medium Rare Cabaret show to host this first exclusive event.
