Lorah’s Magic Feet

Posted on Updated on

Yes, we start the evening in the usual cool fashion…
We sit at the bar and chat and have our drinks while Lorah starts her set…
But then…a sudden urge gets hold of everyone and we all start tapping on the counter, then involuntarily moving, and finally we are irresistibly drawn to Lorah’s  magic circle of dance!
If you want to catch Lorah’s freestyle sets, she’s at Marcel’s every Tuesday, from midnight to 1am (4-5pm SLT).

Be Happy,

Our amazing turntablist/electroswinger G-WINZ, conducted a vibrant and swinging re-visitation to the work of the great Ray Charles, exploring all angles of the great musician’s work, either from personal interpretations or covers from his masterpieces.

It was a major success and G was forced by popular demand to extend his program for an extra half hour!

Here we have some pictures from that evening.

Uncle Marcel visits the bistro.

Uncle Marcel was recently surprised, coming down to check on the unusual noise at the bistro, by a wide group of people, having fun and enjoying the music and ambiance there.


His presence was a success and everyone wanted to be in a pic with uncle, so here we join some of those!

In fact the group he met there has been gathering for some time, since Marcel’s started it’s daily Happy Hour, with a different DJ every evening given free hand to play whatever he/she feels like with no limitations to musical genre or need to prepare a well thought sequence. Just going with the mood of the hour, and frequently venturing on musical styles they usually don’t use on their regular formal show appearances.

As many of our friends already pointed out, it’s precisely that laid back, conversational, friendly atmosphere that keeps them coming back, to enjoy a warm company and a familiar chat before they head home to sleep.


We at Marcel’s would also like to thank all the Dj’s (Gerrard “G-Winz” Winstanley; Lorah Lanah and Rhiannon “Rhia C” McKenna) for the way they generously joined the “Happy Hour” project.


Stay Happy,


New Guest DJ events at Marcel’s!

Posted on Updated on

Howdy everyone 🙂

From this week, Marcel’s will be having a selection of our lovely DJ pals hosting guest slot sessions at the bistro, between 4am – 5am SLT (midnight – 1am GMT).

Although each of the guys has their own usual favourite genre of music that they specialise in, these guest slot evenings will really be a lucky dip, allowing the DJ’s to play totally freestyle, so ya never know what might occur!

Until I can properly update the Opening Times & Events page, here’s a breakdown of who’s going to be guesting when:

  • Mondays – G-Winz
  • Tuesdays – Lorah Lanah
  • Wednesdays – Rhia
  • Thursdays – Closed (Sword DJ’s at Crossing Culture)
  • Fridays – Sword
  • Saturdays – No guest slot at present (G-Winz and Sword DJing on the upper dancefloor alternate Saturdays)
