In case you don't follow us on our socials (and you should!), the big news is that we've been able to complete demolition last week and now have a wide open 5k sq ft space. We don't know how much else we'll be able to get done in the next month (still desperately seeking someone to sand blast the paint off the brick walls!), but whatever happens, we know we want to celebrate Halloween with you.
This is your chance to be the FIRST to set foot inside what is sure to become a legendary venue. Needless to say, this is also the first fundraiser for our massive construction & legalization bills, so please support at the highest level you can afford. If you can't attend, but would like to help out, please see our siganture for donation links. You cannot imagine the staggering cost on what we're setting out to do.
Lastly, a random request: the company that occupied our floor at 267 Douglass, Renaissance Home Care Services, is still listed as open at that address with Google maps. If you could report it as "no longer at the location," it would help us get G&S Loft properly listed at the new spot.
Gemini & Scorpio,
makers of themed costume events with live entertainment

There are some nights in this town that become legendary. Their sparkle lasts long beyond sunrise, when you might finally meander home. These are the nights you remember, and the reason you live in New York City. This is one of those nights.
Twenty years after we threw our first event...eleven years after we opened our first venue -- and a year after we closed it...three years into a life-altering pandemic...Gemini and Scorpio return with a Halloween celebration like only they can do: an all-night spectacle of riotous live music, dancing, circus arts and late-night revelry, snake-charmed into an absinthe-fueled early-morning speakeasy. The space may still be raw, but you can be here when the first-ever champagne cork is popped: to celebrate our (almost) opening, we pour free bubbly 9-10pm.
