You'd think this classy new incarnation of the old Slipper Room was only burlesque -- and you'd be wrong. Buxom beauties do indeed shimmy and shake, but fire eaters, snake charmers, aerial artists and contortionists also wait behind the velvet curtain for you. Every other Monday, beloved show The Big Quiz Thing takes center stage.
great place – went here for a party over the weekend and had a blast. This place was so much fun. We all enjoyed the shows and it was a great night. Thanks to all who run this place!
late night romantic and fun – ran into the place one late night with a guy, great music, awesome drinks, had the best time for a random wed night!
Not your typical... – Definitely not your typical LES bar spot. The dancing girls on stage added an interesting twist. The room itself is rather sleek. IN my opinion, they could do a little better than the odd 80s underground rock (Queen tunes I haven't heard before) . But overall a good getaway from the typical LES crowded bar scene.
oh yah – this place was the best bar i've been to in years! the room is kickass!
inconsiderate hosts – I planned to have 40 people meet me for a surprise party at the Slipper Room and spoke to the manager about the arrangement. He told me that the date was open and agreed to all my requests. Well, true to their name, the event must have slipped his mind because on that day the management and staff double booked another party and would not allow my guests in. No matter how we tried to reason with them, they didn't care. We found another place that welcomed us at the last minute, but I was pissed off at their inconsiderate business practices.
Good drinks, great entertainment – This is a fine establishment. The cocktails are quality, and the decor and ambience are splendid. But the shows are the real payoff, from burlesque to cabaret to experimental opera. Just when you start to think all the bars in the LES have become lifeless poseur lounges, revive yourself at the Slipper Room.
