Bastille Day soiree returns for another year

Almost a year ago, So Frenchy So Chic satisfied all of our pandemic-induced cravings for togetherness and escape with the annual Bastille Day soiree. The look of North Melbourne Meat Market has been reimagined with a distinctly Parisian look. Mirror balls hung from the ceiling and traditional French delicacies were offered. His goal was to tap into the feeling of freedom that French people felt in the 1960s, as a little departure from the traditional Bastille Day celebrations.

On July 14, Bastille Day Soiree returns, promising to be another night to remember. In celebration of La Fête Nationale, mirror balls, stares and dancing have returned, as have dinner favorites from the likes of Hotel Gitan, Frederic and Milk The Cow, who have designed a bistronomical menu of delicacies. french It is recommended to order in advance.

It’s also back in time for the 2022 Ye-Ye 2.0 celebrations, an annual record of French ’60s music that aims to bridge the Franco-Australian cultural bond, blending upbeat melodies with heavier lyrics to create its irresistible French appeal by excellence.

Produced by award-nominated producer Aria Alice Ivy, and mixed by one of Australia’s most sought-after engineers, John Castle, Ye-Ye 2.0 features some of the brightest and boldest names in Australian music, with the likes of Odette, Ngaiire , Woodes, Elizabeth, Julia Wallace, Ali Barter, Montaigne, and Ainslie Wills.

Ye-Ye 2.0 EP003, the third and final instillation in the series, features proud First Nations woman and R&B star Kee’Ann, with her soulful, raspy rendition of Claude Francois. ‘If I had a hammer’; one of Australia’s most exciting and revealing new pop artists, Gretta Ray, with her moving rendition of Sylvie Vartan’s song ‘All my friends’ (All my friends); and a heartfelt original collaboration between Australian singer-songwriter Nadéah and 14-year-old psychiatric ward inpatient Océane Payet, a song that explores life as an inpatient juxtaposed with an upbeat melody, creating an incredible anthem of hope.

Ye-Ye 2.0 EP003 culminates with an exciting release from Sonny Bono ‘bang bang’ by multilingual singer-songwriter Tina Arena, the first Australian to be knighted on France’s National Order of National Merit for her contributions to French culture.

So whether you wear your sequins, your lace, or your widest flared pants, be sure to dress to the nines for an adults-only nightclub filled with decadence, finesse, and dance.
