To celebrate the launch of Season 2 of ‘Boardwalk Empire’ (October 8, 9pm, Sky Atlantic), we moseyed on down to a secret speakeasy courtesy of The Candlelight Club for a suitably decadent 1920s’ party. Similar to the Prohibition-era show, the booze was flowing (though this time it was legal) and there was plenty of dressing up. The new season looks set to be as compelling as the first, with the enemies of Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) gathering and his nemesis Van Alden (Michael Shannon) just getting crazier. In spite of Buscemi and Shannon’s absence, we danced the night away and were particularly pleased to find smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels in our goody bags.
