A living tribute to gay disco is popping up in the heart of Cooper-Young. Sauna is a one-night-only queer party celebrating pride and the music of our community. It’s a reunion for friends near and far, new and old. Join our crew at 1015 South Cooper at 10pm on Saturday September 29th.
Phones discouraged, looks appreciated. 21 and up with ID.
We have imported a hand built, birch, analog sound system that packs a punch while being exceptionally soft on the ears. This type of system is built specifically for dance music and is similar to the systems that powered famous gay clubs of the 70’s such as Paradise Garage and The Loft.
The night will be programmed with sleazy disco cuts, raw underground techno, and diva drenched house. The Sauna Dj’s will be selecting cuts from gay artists throughout underground dance music. If you want pop remixes and circuit hits you may want to stay home and listen to pandora. Our Dj’s don’t take requests or play by any sort of rules. 😉
We have selected a private space in Midtown Memphis where you can feel as free as you want. The exact location will be announced the week of. Lewks encouraged. Clothing check will be available for the adventurous.
No cameras or cellphones allowed. Lets take time to connect and enjoy one another. You can post on the thirst trap later. Sauna is intended to be a safe space to enjoy music, art, expression, and free play. If you see or experience any unwanted attention, contact, bullying, harassment, or behavior of any kind that makes you uncomfortable, please speak out and notify our staff immediately
Acts of aggression (including leering)
ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
Pride is a time for fun and celebration but also a time to nurture and lift-up our community. Please be safe and lookout for your friends and fellow party-goers. Don’t let your good time ruin everyone else’s.
