The Uptown and Hubba Hubba Revue’s New Year’s Eve Bash

When: Thu., Dec. 31, 9 p.m.-1:30 a.m. 2015

After shutting its doors last November, the Uptown nightclub and its neon guitar signage have sat unused down the street from the Fox Theater (1938 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). But on New Year’s Eve, the club will come alive once again — complete with nipple tassels. The grand reopening party will also be a turn-of-the-year burlesque bash featuring a long lineup of scantily costumed dancers including those from San Francisco’s famously elaborate Hubba Hubba Revue. Audiences can expect pin-up bombshells offering variety-show-style antics more engaging than a simple striptease. Hosts will be Kingfish, Alexa von Kickinface, and Maggie Motorboat — the names themselves are enough introduction. Plus, Lee Pression and the Nails will be bringing their sinister swing music to the night, so there will be no shortage of dancing. If you’re looking for a throwback event with sharp, retro style for ringing in the new, then the $20 entry ($25 at the door) will be worth it. — Sarah Burke

Price: $20
