American Express Restaurant Month has kicked off into full swing, with exciting events occurring around the city. With hundreds of exclusive menus, dozens of pop-ups and appearances from international chefs, there's still time to catch one before the month is out.

On Saturday night I headed along to The Supper Club, a celebration of all things prohibition at Everybody's on Fort Lane.

I don't know what I was expecting, but as a group of early-twenties crossed the path of my taxi in sequined dresses, suspenders and flat caps, I realised people had really gone all out.

Slick and sexy, there were feathers, fringe and finery. The theme was pop up speakeasy, with Everybody's capturing the underground extravagance of a decadent downtown illicit club in grand prohibition style.

Guests were greeted with an 'Extra Old Fashioned' on arrival, made with Chivas Extra, Angostura bitters, rich simple syrup, orange twist and cherry. 

A live band and dancers in sequined dresses entertained the masses. The highlight for me was the beef sliders, some of the best I've eaten, but lamb koftas and Thai fish cakes came in a close second and third.
