Embrace your inner burlesque and stop fighting those urges to can-can during Torch Velvet Lounge's upcoming fete: An Evening at the French Cabaret.

When the sun sets on August 5th, escape to the dark, sensual nightclubs of old world Paris. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy special performances by Bizarro Burlesque, live can-can girls, and the very best in deep, sexy house spun by DJ Mateo.

To complete the mood, Torch welcomes abstract expressionist Don Localio for a unique exhibit of some of his more controversial works. Localio’s 'Girls of the French Cabaret' collection features colorful expression of the female form, mainly focusing on his topless can-can dancers yet to debut in Charleston. He'll have pieces from his 'Cirque' collection hanging as well.

Torch Velvet Lounge is located at 545 King Street.
