Prohibition and the Glitz of the Roaring Twenties Return at Nostalgia Dining Lounge's Mobsters and Molls

Ma Baker, Capone, Gatsby, and Sabrina, iconic characters from bygone eras come to life once more at Nostalgia Dining Lounge's special themed nights.

Every Thursday, twice a month, Nostalgia Dining Lounge recreates the mood and feel inspired by a period in history, film or literature, adding yet another element to your dining experience. Tonight, it's Mobsters and Molls and the Roaring Twenties at the Nostalgia Dining Lounge...

The Jazz Age, the Age of Intolerance, and the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, call it what you want, the Roaring Twenties left an indelible mark in modern culture. Nostalgia Dining Lounge recreates this iconic period in history with its elegant table settings of fresh petals and sparkling crystal beads, and some pretty good whisky. 

Elegant, dapper...and notoriously dangerous. The staff of Nostalgia Dining Lounge get into the Roaring Twenties vibe, dressed to kill and ready to serve. And twice a month, diners can participate in a whole new dining experience with special themed nights on Thursdays, infusing fun and nostalgia for a memorable dinner. And Nostalgia Dining Lounge has even more themed Thursday nights in store for diners and guests at Oakwood Joy-Nostalg Center Manila.

A refreshing Watermelon Shake gets you in the groove, as a live musical act serenades you with the classics.

Dinner at Nostalgia Dining Lounge's Mobsters and Molls themed night was priced at P 1,850 net per person inclusive of a sumptuous four course dinner and welcome cocktail. That evening, our welcome cocktail was the refreshing Red Moll, a sparkling blend of gin, vodka, cranberry and clear soda. Smooth and crisp with a bubbly effervescence, the Red Moll opens up your palate for the four-course dinner.

The evening's first course was then served, Ma Baker's Prosciutto Di Parma, with sweet melon wrapped in parma ham served with crusty bread and garden-fresh greens with balsamic truffle reduction. Melon and parma. Like a boss. A mob boss. 

For the second course, a hearty Mobsters Sausage and Beans Soup (L) was served, topped with fresh alfalfa sprouts. For the main course, diners can choose from three choices, including the King Prawns and Scallop in Arrabiata Sauce with grilled king prawns, squid, and pan-fried scallop in a spicy tomato sauce...

...and the Steak Pizzaiola Ala Capone, a tender beef fillet mignon with sweet and smoky bell peppers, tomato concasse, and focaccia bread. The savory richness of the beef is perfectly tempered by the mildly sweet and tart notes of the bell peppers and tomato concasse. Savory and satisfying, this dish packs some serious flavors in true Mobsters and Molls style.

The creamy pesto and fresh alfalfa complete the dish with its fresh and nutty notes. Diners can also opt for a vegetarian main course, with the Melanzane Alla Parmigiana, a savory dish with layers of slow-cooked tomato and aubergine.

After a sumptuous meal, it was time for a shot of whiskey. And no, not just any whisky. What better way to celebrate the roaring twenties than with the bottled spirit of the legendary Irish band with The Pogues, the official Irish whiskey of the band. The bold and intense notes reflect the same intensity as the band.

Cap your feast at Nostalgia Dining Lounge's Mobsters and Molls themed dinner with the indulgent Strawberry Panna Cotta, with a slice of fresh strawberry over creamy buttermilk panna cotta. Diners can also opt for seasonal fresh fruits.

And with a cool speakeasy vibe, I got to sample the classic G & T blended with the Whitney Neil Gin from South Africa. Very cool. And I can't wait for the next themed night at Nostalgia Dining Lounge...
