The Box

This fancy, faux-retro theater space is home to a long-running, X-rated burlesque revue. Lavishly opened a few years ago, and briefly a naughty playground for the expense-account set, it is no longer the hot spot that it once was.

I went to a private event at The Box and it was so cool! The space had a very 20s speak easy feel and the performances were really well done. I think it can be tricky to do truly good burlesque without either being to sexual or not having enough flair but the box does a great job of toeing the line and putting on a perfect performance!

The Box is awesome! A unique, throwback burlesque experience that gets more risque as the night grows older. You won't get an experience like this at many other places in the city. It's certainly worth a trip with a big group for "hush, hush" type of evening!

This place is totally out of the box! shows are awesome, 21+ and i went there with one really nice promoter called Indi Romero, we were a bit late but Indi waited for us and got us in for free and we even didnt have to wait in the line. Thanks Indi

Amazing experience with incredible shows during the night. This is probably the place to be in New York. Luckily I booked the party through Indi at Joonbug. He cut the line for me and my friends and got us into the club right away :) thanks to him I didnt spend any money (he got us tons of free drinks!!). I asked him how could I thank him, so he told me to pass his name to more people! He works at the best venues every weekend, and u can find him on FB: Indi Romero
