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, 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 13 this year!

  • Risqué burlesque by Honi Harlow, Dandy Dillinger
  • Daring duo acts by Dame Cuchifrita and Edie Nightcrawler

A speakeasy experiment in our magical loft. 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 tasting. No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious. Lounge with friends in our sexy low-lit space, or gather at the bar to watch the magic unfold. Our loft is yours for the night.

Featured ingredients and featured cocktails TBA!

About our bartender: sculptor, maker, karaoke enthusiast and bartender, Shayna Cott spent 365 days sequestered in a barn in rural Vermont, studying, training, and emerging periodically to create cocktails from seasonal and esoteric ingredients. She brings this vocational hermitage to bear now on concocting libations from the unpredictable submissions of Gemini and Scorpio's guests.

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 the hottest of the hot jazz bands, The Hot Sardines. It's a real treat to have them back with us after these past few years of worldwide sold-out tours! Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets, by the gorgeous Lily Faye and more. 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.
