Nightlife Icon Susanne Bartsch Is Launching A Cabaret Show

by Stephanie Maida · March 13, 2018

    The weird and wonderful Susanne Bartsch has been shaping underground nightlife in New York for decades. Her parties are legendary, and now she's inviting you to experience one.

    This weekend she's launching a month-long residency at the McKittrick Hotel, the home of Sleep No More and a slew of whimsical watering holes. Taking over the spot's sexy, velvet-draped jazz club, The Manderley Bar, with her limit-pushing brand of debauchery, Bartsch, in collaboration with Dee Dee Luxe, presents The Bartschland Follies.

    A perfect nod to the 1920s and the famed performers of the Ziegfeld, the eccentric midnight show will feature a rotating cast of after-dark characters from Joey Arias to Amanda Lepore, resulting in a cabaret extravaganza that falls somewhere between madcap burlesque and a full-on circus.

    Guests can sip one of the Manderley's classic gimlets (or go the extra mile with a Pernod Absinthe cocktail) to truly set the mood.

    Performances will run every Friday through April 13th. Get tickets HERE!
