The year was 1964; the Purple Onion was Wellington’s first drag bar with Carmen in the line-up, homosexuality was illegal, Parliament was under construction, and young Wellingtonians were allowed to “twist” until 2am.

The Hummingbird have teamed up with today’s drag star Amanduh La Whore to recreate this iconic club within their private dining room.

Sneak in, sip a cocktail of the times and be entertained all night as you enjoy seven-courses featuring local goods such as Shelly Bay Bakery sourdough, cured Cook Strait fish and Wairarapa mushrooms.

Your ticket includes 1 welcome drink & Seven Course dinner.
