It's somehow been more than two weeks since NYE...how did the time fly? We're still waiting on photos from the event from our official photographer, but if you've got any to post to socials in the meantime, please use #geminiandscorpio and #gssnowqueen so everyone can find them.
We'd been immersed in more behind the scenes work since then, and are emerging to let you know that the next big event will be our annual Valentine's Day clandestine French cabaret Meet Me in Paris on Sat Feb 11. We've got a killer band returning from cabarets past, and we're lining up the dazzling burlesque and variety acts as we speak. A new thing this year: we have both banquettes and classic cabaret tables available for reservation, for the perfect romantic date or group party. There are only about 30 of those available, though, so don't wait on tickets.
Full party info below, and more events are TK soon.

A clandestine French cabaret with sensuous live music, sultry burlesque and variety acts, followed by late-night dancing and lounging in our softly-lit loft. Our house band will be playing three full sets to swoon, sway and dance to, with deliciously naughty performances during and in between. Absinthe and other special libations at the bar. It's also our annual Birthday celebration: we turn 21 this year!
