Café en Seine may be a beautiful venue with friendly staff, a kick ass sound system and a vast drinks menu... But on a Friday night, that's no good without some great music to dance to.
Bon Bon is all about indulging your sweeter side - Claire Beck will be dipping into the sugary side of her record collection to put a massive smile on your face and keep you glued to the dancefloor.
What vibe are you trying to capture with Bon Bon?
The vibe is friendly and inclusive without being elitist, there will be no chin stroking on the Bon Bon dance floor, just fans of great music and great times coming together to enjoy themselves.
What about the music... give us a sense of what we can expect?
Dublin has a lot going on, but I feel there's a gap on a Friday night after the bars close for groups of friends and co workers who want to dance to a mix of music that's not cheesy pop but also doesn't take itself too seriously either. Expect a female friendly mix of nu-disco, soul, funk, new wave/80s synth pop, disco, some house classics, modern electronica and a smattering of unexpected delights mixed together in a fun way. Expect lots of vocals and arms in the air moments.
What about the venue?
It's beautiful. I feel that a lot of music fans are unaware of it entirely as there are so many great music venues in Dublin. The plan is to change that.
Eye of the storm... what are you playing?
Something that screams WEEKEND! Maybe a Dimitri From Paris re-edit or a Chic classic, something everyone knows and loves to get things going.
What french bands/acts are you into?
My favourite French artists are the ones that manage to be unapologetically twee at times but in a super cool, quintessentially French way - so Cerrone, Daft Punk, M83, Phoenix, Vanessa Paradis, Dimitri From Paris, Air, Serge Gainsbourg...
You've just played Bon Bon in cafe... what do you want people to say about it?
"Thanks for the great tunes, see you next Friday!"
