The Kitty Kat Club is arranged by speakeasy enthusiasts who book the venue and the bands, organise and publicise the night; the events are independent of the Mansion.
A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an illicit establishment that sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920-1933, longer in some states).
