Hosted by performer/broadcaster Jennifer Kingwell, the Salon features a hand curated bevy of the finest artists across cabaret, burlesque, comedy, sideshow and performance art.

A place to see and be seen. A place to discover and be lost. A place to die and be reborn. Welcome to The Glitter & Doom Salon…
In this exciting new late night alt-variety night, Jennifer Kingwell brings together her dual passion for the subversive opulence of cabaret and the surreally carnivalesque world of Tom Waits. Inspired by the title of Tom Waits’ last live album, The Glitter & Doom Salon delves into the essence of cabaret artistry: the interplay of glamour and tragedy. It equally serves as a heartfelt homage to the music of Waits himself, an artist beloved by the contemporary cabaret scene and one of the all-time great songwriters of the skeezy dive bar/theatre circuit.
Be forewarned – the piano has been drinking, indeed.
