Step through life’s looking glass into the gin-soaked dancehalls of the prohibition age, with live vintage jazz hosted by Ewan Bleach, and swing dance classes with Swing Patrol every Wednesday evening. 


If you are into your swing and into your swing-dancing, then put everything else on hold and get right down to Passing Clouds each and every Wednesday.

A huge scene is rapidly growing under the banner of THE CAKEWALK CAFE and the intuitive genius of rising sax/clarinet/piano star EWAN BLEACH, as he magnetically attracts a continual turnover of top-quality vintage jazz musicians. 

One of the jewels in the Passing Clouds crown, The Cakewalk Café is utterly unique in its combination of social swing dancing and live jazz, becoming a firm favourite with the the stalwart vintage community and vintage virgins alike.
