Another surprising evening with G-Winz’s alternative Eurovision song contest at Marcel’s!
Some doubts remain as to how could Hungary win with more votes than people voting,
and everyone mentioned a suspect undercover person that after taking a bow over the counter left with the trophy…
Another recent great show DJ’d by our friend, G-Winz was the French evening up in the ballroom. G’s usual twist on a theme gave everyone a swinging evening.

A very happy Rezday to my dear friend Valdez, on the 8th of May.
I’m sorry I couldn’t be there my friend, but it seems that there was quite a party. I hope that Sword kept the bubbly flowing! 🙂
On Saturday 3rd of May, Caffeine Nights was proud to open with our first themed show of the season. Some of you who have been members of the old Club Mirage will know that we have done many themed shows over the years, and I am slowly getting round to uploading pics from them to the Past Shows page.
On a train voyage from Milan to Genoa our friends Stella and Fabio passed the time away making a list of their favourite Italian tunes, since we had once considered the idea of an Italian evening. This is mostly the result of their choices put together with the elegant and creative vision of our own Anouk, one of the best set designers in Sl!
Could only result in this amazing evening, to which our Italian friends decided to add some classic and historical figures, making it a mix of romantic Italy and lost Atlantis!
So it was great fun to roll out one of our old sets for our new guests to enjoy. We created a romantic Italian evening in the Colosseum in Roma, where our guests came and danced in the flickering shadows to the beautiful tunes selected by our friends Stella and Fabio and played by our very own DJ, Sword.
Everyone made a fantastic effort with their outfits and we had some very impressive visitors.
We even had our own version of the Trevi fountain, and guests were able to throw in coins to make a wish…
The evening ended with a surprise firework show, and guests being showered with hearts and flowers..
(although earlier in the evening, there had been a brief, un-forecasted flurry of..pizza..?) 😉
Sword has put together a groovy slideshow of the evening so if you want to get a little feel of the music and atmosphere, here it is, and don’t forget to subscribe to his channel for future events! 🙂
Howdy everyone 🙂
From this week, Marcel’s will be having a selection of our lovely DJ pals hosting guest slot sessions at the bistro, between 4am – 5am SLT (midnight – 1am GMT).
Although each of the guys has their own usual favourite genre of music that they specialise in, these guest slot evenings will really be a lucky dip, allowing the DJ’s to play totally freestyle, so ya never know what might occur!
Until I can properly update the Opening Times & Events page, here’s a breakdown of who’s going to be guesting when:
- Mondays – G-Winz
- Tuesdays – Lorah Lanah
- Wednesdays – Rhia
- Thursdays – Closed (Sword DJ’s at Crossing Culture)
- Fridays – Sword
- Saturdays – No guest slot at present (G-Winz and Sword DJing on the upper dancefloor alternate Saturdays)
Hi everyone 🙂 This is our first official post on the Caffeine Nights blog and it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to this little diary of chit-chat and updates about what’s going on at Marcel’s Bistro, as well as general verbal meanderings about our favourite music, artists, useful SL-related stuff and anything else that pops into our heads.
We had a great opening night a few weeks ago and were honoured to have such an excellent turnout.
The bistro was buzzing and it was good to see so many new faces. Dear old Uncle Marcel did his best to sleep through the noise, but eventually gave up and shuffled off to bed, leaving strict instructions not to finish all his best brandy 😉
Later in the evening, the party moved on up to the upper dancefloor so that everyone could properly strut their funky stuff and let their hair down. The night-time views over Paris are very popular and we’ll be having regular events up there, so keep an eye on this page for updates.
So on behalf of myself (Anouk), Sword, and Uncle Marcel – we welcome you to the Caffeine Nights group at Marcel’s and look forward to seeing you all soon! 🙂
