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 banya 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; 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 and DJ Joro Boro 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.

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!

    Featuring:
  • Three sets of vintage danceable French gems by Avalon Jazz Band

2.22 - The Cocktail Experiment

Fri, Jan 25, 8pm-12am, FREE + FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient, 21+ (25+ recommended)
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio / #thecocktailexperiment

Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive craft 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 a friend get a complimentary round (up to three friends, if it's a full size bottle of something excellent!). No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.

Is your birthday in Feb? Your first experiment is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. Yes, you can order food to be delivered, too. 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, unique amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy. Small request: nothing that tastes of anise or licorice, please! If that's the flavor you want, we have plenty of that in the bar, including the best absinthe you'll ever have.
