DEEP FREEZE DISCO
NO COVER! CHEAP DRINKS! FESTIVE SPIRITS!
Tis the season to DANCE. Slip on some holiday sparkles and sweaters to fight the impending wintry chill at our annual holiday dance party!
DEEP FREEZE DISCO will be an epic night of music, dancing, + more with one of NYC’s longest-running cumbia sound system operators, Alejandro Aviles and writer / interdisciplinary artist DJ /rupture. After Hours dancing jams curated by the UNDO Collaborative Studio.
Keep warm in our backyard by the bonfire with a homemade hot toddy in hand, and see old friends and meet new ones to ring in this holiday season. When you’re nice and toasty, bring the heat to the dance floor and disco. ALL NIGHT LONG.
See you there!
