The Gemini and Scorpio Loft is a second-floor Gowanus, Brooklyn, event space run by G&S, producers of themed costume events with live entertainment.
It’s about 2,000 sq ft of open space, with stage, seating, lights, sound and backline. There are two new toilets, heat/air conditioning, and a sprawling roof. The G&S Loft has hosted immersive theater shows, TV/film/video shoots, fashion sales, lectures, weddings, private parties, and music shows. All furniture and tech gear can be moved into a custom configuration for your event, but the loft is event-ready as is at all times.
We can provide experienced production assistance, PR, and all staff -- or let you do it all yourself. The loft is reachable by virtually all trains.
