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 & Tuesday nights. Live music until 1am -- band TBC. Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets by Delysia LaChatte and Logan Laveau. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.
And introducing: the gambling den! We're still working out rules, but expect two tables of Texas Hold'em going till at least 1am. You could win drinks and tickets to future events.
Dress code (required): 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.
Tables: We have four tables with four seats each that can be reserved. Those tickets are sold in pairs for $80 ($40 ea).
