Raise the Roof C'est Bon Salon

Friday 23 September
C'est Bon Restaurant & Le Bon Bar
3 hours
(no interval, subject to change without notice)

Step into the Salon, an intimate gathering of thinkers, dancers and deft romancers. A hot new twist on the vintage tradition taking over four floors of an iconic French bar and restaurant with fine wines, fine company and fine art. Need we say more?

Hedonistically hosted by Counterpilot, Brisbane’s boldest troublemakers (and the brains behind festival intrigues IMB Institute of Light, Avoidable Perils and Truthmachine), C’est Bon Salon will be a night of defiant indulgence, parlour games and undeniable mischief, as we serve up the sublime in pursuit of otherworldly enlightenments.

There’s revolution on the rooftop and seduction in the cellar. Join us in drinking up performance, feasting on poetry, and dancing through the night in this revolt against the rational!
