Hello lovelies,

It's G&S birthday time! Three fabulous events this month...which ones can you make it to? And btw: with our new larger venue, we have the ability to set up group tickets for anyone celebrating their own occasions. You get all the fun of partying in our loft without having to rent it privately. Reach out and let us know if you'd like to bring a crew of 10+ to any of our upcoming events.

- Sat 2.10 - Meet Me in Paris - step back in time to turn-of-century Paris in our annual Valentine's cabaret bash. Live music, live performance, cozy seating, swingin' dance floor, killer cocktails. Best date night in town at about half the price of a boring restaurant.

- Wed 2.14 - Dance Hall of Languid Delight - inspired by the dance halls of the early twentieth century and slow dancing from junior high school, The Dance Hall is an evening filled with tantalizing restraint. Fill your dance card (yes, really), and slow dance all night with rotating partners. With our dance matrons sweeping the dance floor, nobody will be left a wallflower. Plenty of room for dressing up and romance, but an inclusive and sweet night for those flying solo.

- Sat 2.24 - Brooklyn Mardi Gras - the big brass band bash is back! Trust us, you want to be in the room when 50 brass musicians hit at once. You've got till EOD Sunday Feb 18 to snag a ticket that includes a slice of King Cake, flown in directly from NoLa. We're also flying in chicken and sausage gumbo!

Plus, Valentine's celebrations w House of Scorpio, our sex-positive all-gender all-orientation membership community (membership starts at just $5):
- Fri 2.9 - Lip Service - the famed pansexual makeout party
- Fri 2.16 - Saints & Sinners - the most luscious secret st!rp clerb pop-up, with top burlesque and pole acts
- Fri 2.23 - Dark DecaDance - a goth dance & k!nk play party

Gemini & Scorpio,

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 22 this year!

- Daring acts by Coney Island's dangerous dancing mermaid Obsidian Absurd
- Swords, aerial and general wildness by Alaska the Lost Boy
- Nouvelle chanson to electro-swing dance party after the band
- Free social dance class by Brooklyn Swings at 9:30pm

Plus: tintype photo booth by Brooklyn Tintype. Capture your look in a Victorian-era photographic process with silver on tin. Called the polaroid of the Victorian era, each plate is sensitized and developed in a travelling darkroom before your eyes. Plates are available at a special event rate: $65 per 4x5 plate + $20 for digital scans (studio fees start at $125).

Dress code: cocktail or costume. Cabaret through the ages (turn-of-century Belle Époque Moulin Rouge cabaret, 1920s Josephine Baker cabaret, 1930s Marlene Dietrich cabaret, 1940s Edith Piaf cabaret, 1950s Jacques Brel cabaret, 1960s las Vegas cabaret, 1970s Bob Fosse cabaret, timeless cabaret lounge, anachronistic punk cabaret); vintage or modern high style; dressy & classy. No casual wear, please.

Inspired by the dance halls of the early twentieth century and slow dancing from junior high school, The Dance Hall is an evening filled with tantalizing restraint. The esteemed DJ James Mulry delivers eclectic slow dances all night via vinyl record. Hosted by the illustrious Kate Brehm.  

Participants are given dance cards to arrange partnered prances in the opening half hour and dance set breaks. Get social in our jungle-themed bar with fun cocktails & mocktails, and arrange your dances for the night. You don't need a partner or dance skills to participate: a slow dance lesson begins the evening, and any wallflowers are matched up by roving dance matrons (note: gender is irrelevant for partner dancing).

Dress as your most magnificent self (gender irrelevant for fabulous dress, as well). Selfie photo booth set up to capture your looks.

Arrive on time to start filling your dance card. Dance lesson and evening instructions at 7:30pm. Three dance card music sets begin at 7:45pm & end at 10:30pm, with intermissions between sets. Slow dance music in intermissions and after for open dancing.

*All tickets offer the same access to the event. Please buy at the highest price you can, to support artists, production and affordable tickets for everyone. For every patron ticket ($40) we add a low income ticket ($15).
