So YIKES, we just realized that there was an email hiccup and last Friday's newsletter never went out, for the first time in our 16 years. We are so sorry! We'll be back on our regular schedule this Friday, but in the meantime, an update on our events for this weekend and beyond..
There are other fun things happening at our loft in this time, too (Jason Webley performing live! Abracadabra dance party! Erotic film screening with pornographer Stoya!). We'll list the G-rated ones on our site, but if you want to be certain to hear of them as soon as they're posted, give a "like" to our official G&S Loft Facebook page and make sure your notifications are on: https://www.facebook.com/gemini.scorpio.loft/events (and if it's the R/X-rated ones you're after, check out the House of Scorpio link in our signature).

A classic speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, exotic cocktails, and the best electro-swing DJs remixing and reinventing vintage grooves late into the night. "Gatsby-era fun with a twist of new-school vibe" (The Village Voice).
The night starts with an introductory dance class for swing basics by Brooklyn Swings, who teach at our loft every Monday night. Then a celebratory free champagne toast at 10pm, before we kick off the live entertainment.
Live music until 1am by likely the most-booked band of Swing House's history: Queen Esther and the The Hot Five, playing sultry originals and expert renditions of rare all-American standards from the 1920s-30s. Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.
Plus: the gambling den! A taste of our casino nights, with a poker tournament and a roulette table going till at least 1am. You could win drinks and tickets to future events, and yes, if you have casino credit on file with us, you can use it to play.
Dress code (required): The Jazz Age never ended, it just got funky. Dress accordingly: "An event worth wearing that ridiculous zoot suit for." - TimeOut NY; "Corsets and top hats tweaked with studs and leather are totally appropriate." - The New York Times. Suggestions: vintage (1920s-1940s) with a modern twist, cabaret, burlesque, Weimar Berlin, classic Hollywood, classy, sassy, tailored, hats, feathers, sequins, beads. Effort required. Dress code modern-friendly after 1am for the electro-swing dance party.

The Cocktail Experiment + March Babies Birthday Party
Fri, March 23 (and every fourth Friday), 9pm-2am, FREE admission, 21+ (25+ recommended) Plus: FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient* $6 per experiment / $17 flight of three / cash only
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK
Official site & address RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/363504674128268/ Social media: @gemini_scorpio / #geminiandscorpio
For the first time ever, we're opening our doors as a craft cocktail lounge on a set monthly schedule. Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious.
Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and up to three friends get a complimentary round. No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.
Is your birthday in March? Your first drink is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. For everyone else: free un-birthday treats!
*Tips on bringing ingredients: we welcome both liquor and mixer challenges, but please no basic juices or sodas...that's not what craft cocktails are made of. Consider: half-size bottles, homemade infusions or syrups, that forgotten bottle of weird booze you don't know what to do with, inexpensive amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy!
