Orlando's 'Great Gatsby'-themed speakeasy Gatsby on Church announces grand opening party



Sometimes the simulation glitches and gives us something a little too on the nose. That's the only way Orlando — in the midst of a crisis of affordability as one small part of America's new Gilded Age — could support a Great Gatsby-themed speakeasy.

Gatsby on Church is opening next Thursday with a party that probably won't throw the vapid nature of the upper class into stark relief.  The owners are giving the green light to jazz, drinking and dancing with a ticketed bash.

On the event website they promise to take you back to a time you "never knew was so mysterious and fun!" (We're starting to think they didn't finish the book.)

Tickets for the kickoff event on July 29 are going for $20. Gatsby on Church is at 23 W. Church St.
