A Different Night, A Different Party
The most attractive feature about House of Yes is that their parties are planned to be exceptionally atypical from what you expect and grandiose in hypnotizing you through the night with their performances. One party might ask of you to don a wacky wig of your liking with a competition of who’s got the best look, while another night sets a tropical jungle ambiance with exotic aerialists and fruit offerings to their guests. Even making something so simple as bingo seem so fabulously fun when infused with confetti and dancing. Many of their nights include mesmerizing aerialists, go-go dancers on the stage or cages and more. The “more” can range from drag queens to jaw-dropping trapeze artists to fire dancers, all here to entertain you as you dance to the eclectic options of music, which can range from house to EDM to 80’s pop songs. The sensory overload makes their parties much more unique than many other New York clubs out there that simply throw on a DJ as the solo act for the night.
If you want to come for an alternative type of partying, you can come here for their deep house yoga on Saturdays, where you can finish off by satiating your hunger at their brunch on-site. Much of their menu items have Middle-Eastern inspired flavors, which you can enjoy dining in their outdoor patio area. If you’re not into yoga and you have half of a brain (or simply just a yearning for good original entertainment), you can even sit tight for their Blunderland Variety Shows or their interactive and immersive shows, such as Foreplay, which will give you an enjoyable night in surprising and thrilling ways without hitting a dance floor.
Preparing for a Night at House of Yes
With so many different things to do at House of Yes, check out their website for all of their latest events and to get tickets for the one that piques your interest. There isn’t quite a dress code at the House of Yes, as just like the neighborhood of Bushwick where it resides, it’s a surprisingly lax venue for the amount of fun you get in return. However, maximize your experience and come dressed up according to the theme of your event. If it’s a 80’s party theme, slap on some leg warmers and leggings and a headband, or if it’s a disco night, come in your flairs and glittery shirt.
