What on earth is it?
The club or stash is here to provide an escape far from the maddening normal crowd. Wander into idyllically silly conversation and concentrate on our nonsensical happenings both musical and spoken. We are a convivial tatter of dreamers who make things occur. We’re serious about a good time but as with life, nothing is quite what it seems.
Fancy some Beijing Dumplings?
Even if you don’t enjoy Dunkin bagels, Cement Mixer Putti Putti, Anytime Any Place Anywhere we will be waiting for you with a smile, occasionally a false moustache and the finest of wines, cocktails and beers.
Why Vout-O-Reenes I hear you ask. What does it mean?
The hipster cool language was invented by jazz giant Slim Gaillard in the 1930’s and published as a dictionary. Slim encapsulates the ethics of the club, mischievous, sharp, Slim, tall, ambidextrous, cool, playful, imaginative and at all times charmingly grar-sa.
Wherever Slim was, you wanted to be; he was the jive talking party. In homage to a great man we name our club and place a piano, ever in the hope that he reappears in our Stash, in whatever guise.
