A clandestine French cabaret, with live music, burlesque and variety acts, followed by late-night dancing and lounging in the softly-lit loft, absinthe and other special libations at the bar, and kissing on the sprawling roof. A soft opening of our new yet-to-be-named arts space, and a celebration of our 9th Birthday.
