Planning a Vintage Hen Party in Essex!

For the Essex hen that doesn’t conform there are now so many options for an alternative celebration! Have a hen party that’s as individual as you are and embrace the vintage vibe with the offerings now available in Essex.

Pin Up Photo Shoots

At Le Keux Essexwe offer a wide range of hen activities in our 50’s themed venue. You can choose from vintage hair and makeup, Photoshoots, pin up academy, afternoon tea, cocktail masterclass, burlesque & dance classes, fascinator making, jewellery making and much, much more! After your activity with us there are so many places you can visit locally to continue your celebrations.

Don’t want the theme to end after having your hair and makeup done, then pop round the corner to Rockamillywhere you can purchase a vintage reproduction outfit to wear throughout your celebrations!

For something to eat if you want to continue with the 50’s theme make your way into Southend to either Bobby Joesor Grumpy’s Dinerwhere you can experience an authentic 1950’s American Diner serving delicious home-made food with fresh quality ingredients. Feeling hungry? Bobby Joe’s offers a food challenge that if you can complete then not only do you eat for free but will have your name and picture added to the wall of fame! Alternatively if you want to go a little off theme then there are a fantastic selection of Italian Restaurants in our Leigh-on-Sea location. For a relaxed family vibe go to Irmas Pizzeria, the food is authentic, delicious and understated. I brought one of my friends here for her hen a few years ago and she loved it as it reminded her of the food back in Italy where her family are from (so it’s had the seal of approval from an Italian!). Fancy a more luxurious Italian meal, then you should definitely visit Fellini’sthe sophisticated food and atmosphere provide you with an experience close to perfection! They can also cater for groups with their set party menu for just £25.00 per person and have an extensive cocktail menu.

Time to party the night away! If staying in Leigh-on-Sea you won’t have far to walk, next to Irmas and opposite Fellini’s is the Black Cata speakeasy style cocktail bar where you will need a secret password to enter. Or to finish off your vintage experience, make your way to Peggy Sueswhere you can enjoy a night of live music ranging from Rock n Roll to Country to Blues. Alternatively if you want to go into town, Southend has a fantastic cabaret venue, Coco’s, brought to you from the team at the world famous Rah Rah room in Piccadilly Circus, London, they now offer an entertainment smorgasbord like no other in the South East, featuring world class entertainment and variety to be enjoyed while sitting at your own exclusive booth or table. Enjoy acts ranging from burlesque, comedy and vocalists, and meet Coco’s very own Drag Queen Miss Coco!

So what are you waiting for?!?

Book your celebration in Essex and have the most amazing party ever!!!!!
