Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, it’s time to become part of the eclectic tapestry of Hotclub de Franz!

Hotclub de Franz? 

Hotclub de Franz was named after 1930s jazz organisation Hot Club de France by TenClub’s Herr Franz, who was born into Sinti gypsy family.  Hot Club de France used to be strongly associated with famous Sinti gypsy stars Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, Herr Franz’s ancestors!

That is right, you are invited to become part of the line-up! This is your theatre of life, and at Hotclub de Franz, the 2020s are not just a decade; they are the roaring twenties, drawing inspiration from the exhilarating aftermath of the Great War.

Here at TenClub, we’ve cultivated a community that embraces the vibrant spirit of the 1920s, ensuring each visit to Hotclub de Franz is an unforgettable adventure.

The line-up

Monster Room
Wilma “La Dietrich” Bakker & Herr Franz take you back to Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s musical theatre works of the 1920s and 1930s. Weill aimed to write Gebrauchsmusik, music that served a socially useful purpose. La Dietrich and Herr Franz will take you right into the heart and soul of your very own Interbellum alter ego!

Ragtime meets Vaudeville with Luca Šoda on the mic. Luca is an actor and singer inspired by early 20th century entertainment. There’s no time for Luca to catch his breath, as he always finds his trumpet asking for attention whenever he’s not singing. Don’t miss this master of Vaudeville!

DJ DRK is a master at taking it slow. The slower the song, the sexier and the more intense your listening experience will be. Whenever your sleazy selector feels like playing a fast club track, he’ll always remember to pitch it down a knot. With Dirk in the booth, the dancer – and that is you – becomes the music.

Meditation Room & Club
Welcome to Shadowfall Sanctuary, a clandestine haven where three enigmatic and alluring women speak the language of our deepest and darkest desires. Enter our meditation room and immerse yourself in an atmosphere of intrigue and temptation. As dimly lit corners and flickering candlelight cast dancing shadows, the Shadowfall Sanctuary’s seductive performers set the stage for an unforgettable experience.

Poetry Penthouse
Mind bending poetry with Andrej “Dirty Mind” Kapor and Simon “Fontaine a Absinthe” Mulder.
