Off-beat burlesque and costume couture are mainstays at Gemini & Scorpio parties. These quirky, Cirque du Soleil-esque bashes showcase unique art, music, costumes, and different funky themes. Dancing goes well into the night and all guests come dressed to impress, whether the theme is steampunk, faux fur, or space age.
The NYC outpost of this Swiss record label (the Swiss are crazy partiers, btw), Cityfox NYC is another party proctor that goes balls-out on the underground scene. Nothing is off limits, from warehouses to waterfronts, and secrecy is the name of the game. Often the nights last well into the next day, with tickets being released in time brackets, some not until 5am.
If parties that are kept a secret until the last possible second turn you on, then this is your jam. ZERO throws a host of electronic parties throughout the year, mostly at locations that remain under wraps until the day of. Past themes include masquerades, boat parties, and pirate-themed parties. Coming up this year still are Monte Carlo, Golden Sunset Boat Event, a Rooftop Festival, and a Halloween Warm-Up.
