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.

A new circus is cumming to town and we're popping a tent at Gemini & Scorpio Loft for a show unlike anything we've done before.

Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio

 

Calling all faux millionaires to litter their gold coin at our illicit gambling establishment far offshore on the banks of Gowanus. The casino club will feature blackjack, roulette and the star attraction of the night: Texas hold'em tournament, played at 10pm, 11pm, and 12am for a $50 value prize. For non-tourney games, a member credit system will let you use your winnings for future party entry, drinks, etc.

The original Castaways resort in Vegas was peak-60s polynesian insanity. We'll honor our namesake with some tropical drinks & beats. Drinks courtesy of our Burning Man campmate in the famed French Quarter Golden Cafe, expert tropical drink maker Jay. Last time he passed through town, there were strawberries dipped in chocolate and injected with Grand Marnier. We'll see what happens this time. Beats courtesy of tropical bass maestro Geko Jones.

Dress suggestions: funky party-wear, 1960s Polynesian kitsch, faux fancy, vintage lounge, sparkly cocktail, or other non-sloppy attire appreciated. No elaborate costumes or formalwear required, but you know we love it when you put in effort.

We'll turn the heat way up for some sweaty dancing joy. Wear layers!

Lastly: we still have a few of those ridiculous tiki to-go tumblers from the last Castaways. Take your tropical drinks to go in one of those bad boys for only $10.

The Cocktail Experiment + April Babies Birthday party

Fri 4.27 (and every fourth Friday), 8pm-1am, 21+ (25+ recommended)
FREE + FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient* // $6 per experiment / $17 flight of three / cash only
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location,

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 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 April? 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, inexpensive amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy.
