$5 Ugly Sweater Party @ Katch Astoria

$5 Ugly Sweater Party @ Katch Astoria | New York | United States

Do you like the Quiet and ugly type? If so, this might be your kind of event!

Now that Labor Day has passed, Christmas is around the corner. And nothing says Christmas more than an ugly sweater party; nothing! Whether they’re inspired by pugs, toons, your in-law(s), or whichever memes make the holiday collection, we want to see those jovial jumpers.

Studio Square has delectable foods, savory drinks, and lots of room to dance. So chassé the night away while indulging in some holiday spirits, if you know what I mean. Hey, some of those ugly sweaters might even start to look a little bit better.

Your 3 Live DJs are spinning all night:
DJ 1 (Green):
 Top 40 Dance Hits
DJ 2 (Red): 80’s, 90’s & 2K Throwbacks
DJ 3 (Blue): Hip Hop/R&B

Your Experience Includes:
• A pair of Quiet Events headphones
• Glow in the dark gear
• Massive indoor/outdoor garden
• 3 DJs battling for your attention

Special Notes:
• 21+ to party
• Rain or Shine (we bring the party indoors!)
• Limited tickets available at the door
• Relaxed dress code: Ugly holiday sweaters encouraged!

What to bring:
• Valid ID
• You MUST have a credit or debit card for the check-in process. If the headphones are NOT returned, there will be a $100 charge to your credit or debit card after the event.
• No need to print your ticket, just show the code on your phone or they will have your name at the door.

How it works:
When you arrive you’ll receive a pair of special wireless headphones. You can adjust the volume and choose between up to three DJ’s with a flip of a switch. Each headset has a color LED that shows what channel you are listening to, so you can dance along with those listening to the same DJ as you. It’s super social; just lower the volume or take the headphones off to talk to that girl or guy. There’s no loud music that you have to talk over. Plus, there’s no ringing in your ears when you leave!
