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 Monday night classes at our loft). Live music until 1am by Professor Cunningham and His Old School, a five-piece grooving New Orleans style band that's like Mardi Gras without the hangover. Plus burlesque fabulousness in between and 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.

G&S loft, must RSVP for Gowanus, BK address

Event on Facebook | #GSloft on Twitter

Taking it down to the basics: an open house / house party at our loft and rooftop.

7-9pm: Open house. Do you have a show, party, class or community event that needs a space? Or an idea for something we should put on here? The goal of G&S Loft is sustainability through creative community, and we try to work with all reasonable budgets to make that happen. Talk to us about making your event idea a reality and see our space in daylight.

9pm-late: DJs, dancing, cheap drinks, hanging out with friends. Come see what we've been working two years to build. Miss Scorpio will still be available 9-10pm for tours, questions, event ideas, and stories of #loftlife. Participation welcome: let us know if you want to add anything to the event.

If you can't make it to the party, but would like to schedule a walkthrough another time, email loft at geminiandscorpio for an appointment.
