Live music until 1am by likely the most-booked band of Swing House's history: 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 Cocktail Experiment + March Babies Birthday Party
Fri, March 23 (and every fourth Friday), 9pm-2am, FREE admission, 21+ (25+ recommended) Plus: FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient* $6 per experiment / $17 flight of three / cash only
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK
Official site & address RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/363504674128268/ Social media: @gemini_scorpio / #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 March? 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!
