What on earth is it?
Welcome to Vout-O-Reenee’s, here to provide an escape far from the maddening crowd of normality. Don’t stand alone, join us in our celebration of life. We are here to bring joy into the mundane, a sparkle of smiles into a spray of sunshine. We are a convivial tatter of creative dreamers who make things happen. We’re serious about a good time but as with life, nothing is quite what it seems. Wander into our idyllically silly space or conversation, and concentrate on our ineffable visual, musical and spoken banquet. ‘Life,’ as Mr Wilde declaimed. ‘is far too important to be taken seriously.’
Even if you don’t enjoy Dunkin Biegels, Cement Mixer Putti Putti, Anytime Any Place Anywhere, some of Slim’s tunes, now that you have found us we will be waiting for you.
‘And you may ask yourself, How did I get here?’
Why Vout-O-Reenees. What does it mean?
The hipster cool language was invented by jazz giant Slim Gaillard in the 1930’s and published as a dictionary called Vout-O-Reenee’s (you will receive one when you become a member!). Slim encapsulates the ethics of the club, mischievous, sharp, Slim, tall, ambidextrous, cool, playful, imaginative and at all times charmingly grar-sa (happy), Vout-O-La(joy).
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.
