★★The Travelling Tavern★★
When every empire has blossomed and wilted; when every wind of change has blown its course; at the end of all roads and outside of all time there will be a lone saloon stationed at the edge of everything where the liqueur flows unceasingly, where bodies whirl, desires unfurled, unfettered from the grip of the grave. And the music! Pure as the dawning of a new day, wild as the night and sublime as the stars. Leave the follies of the waking world behind you and join us in the perpetual twilight of the Travelling Tavern.
