On Chinese Moon Year’s Eve, a dreamful night in an opium den of our making. Recline in languid repose and drift in the pleasures of intimate performance, golden-throated singers, tales told in glistening flesh, exotic cocktails and delectable dim sum. Featuring live vintage Chinese jazz by Shien Lee of Shanghai Triad and Dances of Vice, Chinese balladry by talented young cantautore Natti Vogel, Asian-inspired burlesque by Dame Cuchifrita and GrandmaFun, and your opium den madam The Flying Fox. Late-nightethno-loungegrooves by DJ Nightshade. Love tarot readings by Marcy Currier. Custom mural by Molly Crabapple. And of course cocktails by The House Of St Eve (yes, t.h.o.s.e. drinks)…
This party is also the offical launch of the newly redecorated Brooklyn Urban Sanctuary 2000sq ft loft. If you’ve seen it before, you’ve never seen it like this. Only 100 person capacity until 11pm; advance tickets recommended.
