Hello lovelies,

New events and date changes below! We hope to see you soon in our lush new spot.

- Tomorrow! Sat 3.4 - after a three-year pandemic pause, the big brass band bash is back! King Cake is in from New Orleans, and traditional chicken & sausage gumbo is being made tonight. If you'd like to get in on either, make sure to get there early tomorrow: all food is first come, first served, starting at doors open. We'll even have to-go boxes for cake, if you'd like to take it home.

- Sat 3.18 - date change! Swing House is moving to a new April date. Ticket holders, check your inboxes for refund or credit instructions, but your tickets are also good for the new date. Instead, we welcome back the new incarnation of the wild Cirque du So Weird cabaret & party you may have attended in our old spot, as a special birthday bash for producer Lydia Vengeance. Called Witches of the Water, it celebrates all things Pisces, sea and water, through live music, burlesque and circus arts. It will get weird; we can tell you that right now.

- Sat 3.24 - our dark dance & kink party last week was a heartwarming 90s throwback, and everyone had a great time. We're going to bring it back at the end of this month, again FREE.

- Sat 4.15 - the new date for Swing House, our glamorous night of danceable vintage jazz, slinky burlesque and stunning variety. We highly recommend table reservations for all cabaret-style parties.

A 1920s speakeasy cabaret party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, stunning variety acts, 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 Tuesday night. Live music until 1am, with burlesque & variety during and between band sets. Electro-swing remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.

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, fringe, sequins, beads. Effort required; if in doubt, go more formal. Dress code more relaxed after 1am for the electro-swing dance party.
