A clandestine French cabaret, with live music, burlesque and variety acts, followed by late-night dancing and lounging in the softly-lit loft, absinthe and other special libations at the bar, and kissing on the sprawling roof. Our house band will be playing three full sets to swoon, sway and dance to, with deliciously naughty performances in between. It's also our annual Birthday celebration: we turn 12 this year!

- Risqué burlesque by glamorous Lily Faye and daring Dame Cuchifrita
- Hosted by dashing & dangerous magician Eric Walton
- Nouvelle chanson to electro-swing mix by DJ Poodlecannon

Break out your bikini or swim trunks, and join our hand-picked crowd of artsy, funky (and nearly naked) New Yorkers for the glorious return of Gemini & Scorpio's legendary Russian Baths party.
We will have the newly remodeled & sparkling clean baths to ourselves, with a few hand-picked professionals on hand for the optional platzas and massages. Enjoy: Russian, Turkish and Swedish steam rooms, jacuzzi and cold plunge pool; poolside dance floor; rooftop smoking deck; hookah lounge and chillout rooms; authentic and delicious Russian food in a private restaurant room with a view of the dance floor.
The Hungry March Band, Brooklyn's own legendary street brass marching band, will get you sweating faster than the saunas, and DJs will keep the dance floor sizzling after with irresistible ethnotek till 2am, while we dole out pierogies for everyone. There will be an open vodka bar 9-10pm.
This is the kind of party you always imagine, but can never quite find in real life...and may be the only one you'll come out of cleaner than when you came in.
