Jul 19: Mocktail Galaxy: New Dimensions in Zero ABV
Shake bartender Colin Tait has whipped up a menu of mocktails with premium ingredients to let you party and enjoy some live music without the accompanying hangover. Courtney Knott and The Shanghai Sheiks play live funk and soul all night, and cocktails are all half off for those determined to booze.

Jul 19: Jiafeng
Shanghai-based musician and media artist Jiafeng brings his unique mix of live saxophone and vaporwave beats to Arkham. Expect intriguing, genre-defying music and supercuts of bizarre online videos. DJ Dopey, Li Laoban, and Yung Min provide support.

Jul 21: Lemonade: A Night of Beyoncé
Shake’s resident singer Courtney Knott and their seven-piece band spend the next two Saturday nights devoted to the Queen herself: Beyoncé. Expect original takes on Bey’s greatest hits, plus some classic highlights and lesser-known deep cuts from her albums.
