the oxford tavern

Cocktail bar & live music and performance haunt. Otherwordly terrain. For lineups, bills, and other good bits, check our Instagram. Sitting in the liminal space between the worlds above and the worlds below, is Pleasure Club; a sanctuary where all are welcome to revel and indulge. Through drink, performance, and community, we tell A Pleasure Club Story. Each iteration of our cocktail program speaks to a Story. Pleasure Club’s first Story is that of a Nostalgia Machine. A contraption of purportedly scientific origins (but, it’s rumoured, with interference from The Beyond); spinning vapours and distillates from an alchemical, confounding system of extraction and experimentation. The Machine, through this, weaves in its wake a Portal to the mind—a dimension of memory; where all the elements of Pleasure and Pain lay dormant. Dormant until stirred, awoken, to arise in a glass, poured simply: an invitation to this dimension you may have long forgotten, suppressed; or desperately chased. Revel in the escapism of your memory, and embrace a togetherness in the feeling. Have your worries shepherded from this worldly shell through the Nostalgia Machine. Only pleasure remains.
