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 Tuesday night.
Live music until 1am, with burlesque & variety during and between band sets. Electro-swing remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.
