On February 7, we hosted our very first HALL PASS, a fusion of art, music, drinks in the form of an inclusive, open party. Think house party, plus live painting, drag queens, and DJs — the name is a nod to our school days, and getting a free pass to be somewhere you maybe shouldn’t be.
For the first edition of the (free!) party, we brought in artist Lefty OUT There to showcase his pattern-based creations, DJ Tess (who has a first Friday of the month residency at Broken Shaker) to spin her signature mix of dance party and R&B sounds, and hosts Imp, Claire Voyant, and Delikate Doll, who did an impromptu performance to Madonna’s “Vogue.” Plus, we opened up all the rooms on the second floor of the hotel to really send home the house party vibes.
We’re excited to keep these quarterly events going — check back for details on the next one!
