Space available in our building!
You can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft! New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we snagged a few to share. We're down to one 9x13 room, available as share or full sublet, $650/mo. Email "loft" at "geminiandscorpio" to talk to us about renting it. Or, to get your own space, see http://www.bandspacesnyc.com -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.) For anyone renting a room in the building, we'll offer discounts on any Loft rentals for meetings, rehearsals and shows.
Fri Feb 23 - The Cocktail Experiment + February Babies Birthday party
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location, 8pm-1am, 21+ (25+ recommended)
FREE + FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient* // $6 per experiment / $17 flight of three / cash only
Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #thecocktailexperiment #geminiandscorpio
For the first time ever, we're opening our doors as a craft cocktail lounge on a set monthly schedule. Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious.
Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and up to three friends get a complimentary round. No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.
Is your birthday in February? Your first drink is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. For everyone else: free un-birthday treats!
*Tips on bringing ingredients: we welcome both liquor and mixer challenges, but please no basic juices or sodas...that's not what craft cocktails are made of. Consider: half-size bottles, homemade infusions or syrups, that forgotten bottle of weird booze you don't know what to do with, inexpensive amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy!

Please arrive with a PAL and be familiar with our Code of Conduct, including dress code
For one night only, our sexy clubhouse becomes a full-on strip club, with a pole stage, an array of lap dance-ready seating....and a play-friendly Champagne Room. There will be six dancers to entertain you: each a hand-picked burlesque, pole or circus star stepping outside the boundaries of their genre to spend the whole night dancing for you on stage and in your lap. More featured dancers TBA!
- Peekaboo Pointe, fastest tassel-twirler from East to West (and our cover girl!)
- Sydni Deveraux, the golden glamazon
- Nina La Voix, the grande dame of derierre
- Amanda Whip, the bendy sex kitten
- Gal Friday, the five-alarm fire of burlesque
- Cheeky Lane, the wild child of the Id and the Ego
- Audrey Love, the tantalizing tease
- Lydia Vengeance, the manic pixie nightmare witch
Once the dancers are done at 1am, the stage is yours to shake your booty on. Live out your strip fantasies on our stage as DJ Ceremony provides the beats late into the night.
Rules of the club: the usual dress code & code of conduct apply / Countdown rules in Champagne Room. Read the website. Dress up. Tip generously (dancers, wait & bar staff). Get lap dances (they're the best part, and only $10). Respect the dancers. Keep your hands to yourself (or your partner). Nudity is fine on the stage, but no private parts on our furniture. Come early for the best seats!
*Reserved seats ($50) include: 9pm admission + a seat at a 4-person table with a view of both stages + wait service + access to reserved lap dance seat

A classic speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, 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 Monday night. Live music until 1am by Queen Esther and the The Hot Five, playing sultry originals and expert renditions of rare all-American standards from the 1920s-30s. Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.
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, sequins, beads. Effort required. Dress code modern-friendly after 1am for the electro-swing dance party.
