Join us for a Special 6th Annual
New Years Eve FLOATING KABARETTE!
with your host, the inimitable Bastard Keith!
A long time ago we decided that if we had to work New Year's Eve that we were going to create the exact event that we’d want to go to....
……On New Years Eve you’ll be transported back in
time to a world of lovers, sultry can-can dancers,
soaring aerial artists, acrobats, powerful
chanteuses and handsome chaunteurs, and
sensual burlesque dancers.....
What does the press say about our
FLOATING KABARETTE! NEW YEARS EVE?
"Some of New York City' Best Performers!"
- The New York Times
“How everyone should spend their New Years Eve"
- NY Press Critics Pick
“Ring in the New Year at this Sexy Bash”
- Time Out NY Critics Pick
“Some of the City’s Sexiest Acts!”
-Time Out NY Critics Pick
Featuring (gasp!) attractive men who can (actually) do interesting things, and smart, strong, courageous women that will amaze and inspire……
Our New Years Eve Floating Kabarette! will be followed by an elegant night of dancing as New Years Eve continues with blurred boundaries and hazy focus into the wee hours of the night……

I want to sit with my friends, but they are purchasing their tickets separately. Help!
- We'd love have your friends join you, we'll even do the organizing and seat you together.
Once you buy your tickets we'll give you a group number that you pass on to your friends. When they buy tickets and give us the group number, voila! We will then do our best to seat you together..... it's that easy!
The best policy is to get your tickets as early as possible, especially if you are in a big group.
I want to select my seat!
- As much as we'd like to offer you the seat of your choice, we can only seat you within the section you've requested based on your party size. We have a socially-oriented floor map that puts you together with other partygoers into the middle of the action. We do carefully fill our map so no seats are left empty, and this show is guaranteed to be full!
Can't I just stand in the area around those 4 circles?
- There is lots of space there, unfortunately it is occupied by a 5000 gallon lake that could substantially dampen your enjoyment of the show, as well as your shoes.
I don't want to spend all that money to sit on ottomans in the front.
Good News! We're seating all our islands for NYE on chairs with backs, since you'll be decked out in your finest and hopefully too tipsy for a stool.
I've never been to Floating Kabarette. What the heck is a Floating Kabarette?
-Floating Kabarette is Galapagos Art Space's flagship weekly variety show, featuring the most brilliant burlesque, aerial, dance, juggling, and cabaret artists from NYC and abroad. These artists represent the créme de la creme of our lineup, all decked out in their finest to ensure an entertaining and glamorous New Years Eve for you and your friends. Our host, Bastard Keith, keeps the night moving rapidly with his wry humor and gobs of innuendo.
Seriously, Why 'Floating' Kabarette?
-See also: Seating. Our venue contains a lake, and thereby lakeside seating, surrounded by an operatic mezzanine. Our best seats are literally suspended over the water, in four islands.
Burlesque? I don't think my date will like it very much...
-While our show is certainly sexy, it has a little something for everyone, male, female and 'other'. Besides.. blushing not only makes you more attractive, the extra blood flow to your face and brain can actually make you smarter (probably).
Can I come see Floating Kabarette before I commit?
-Certainly! We have shows every Saturday leading up to the New Year. Our regular Kabarette page is here, including more photos, a video trailer, and links to all of our upcoming shows. Every week is a new lineup.
I dunno, it IS New Year's Eve and I have so many invitations to do stuff all over town.
We get started early, timed immaculately, so that the show comes down on the strike of midnight. You get the ultimate pre-game open bar, a rowdy full length Kabarette, and a dance party from the ball drop till the wee hours- and are then conveniently located near trains and cabs in a great location to catch the late-late night anywhere in town (or to go home without the headache of an overcrowded city). Trust us, we've been working NYE for years!
What's this about a dance party? I only know how to twerk.
Our resident DJ KAnton soundtracks the evening with the latest beats and most revered classics, spanning genre after genre while keeping it sexy. The evening will likely start you off in 20's Paris, make stops in Ibiza and Blackpool, and end up somewhere in between Compton and Trenchtown. Oh, and the dance floor opens at midnight so you can show off your latest moves.
I'm starving. Is there any food?
We will have some light snacks, but nothing substantial since we don't have a kitchen.... You are welcome to bring in food from outside if you like, or better yet go for an early supper at one of DUMBO's great local restaurants.
My 1920's wear is at the cleaners since my caroling accident. Can I be a spaceman?
Any or all outerwear expression is welcome. This is your night, you be you, boo boo!
I still don't get it
Maybe you can call us or come down here so we can explain it to you?
We're at 16 main st. Brooklyn NY 11201, 718-222-8500.
Office hours are M-F 10am-6pm. We'd love to see you!
