Where to party and be in bed before 10pm
The alfresco music series hits MoMA PS1’s courtyard starting July 6 and brings new sounds and DJs from all around the world. Aside from the outstanding talent, a new (and often trippy) art installation takes over the outdoor space, making this weekly bash one of the most indispensible summer experiences for culture vultures.
Have you ever wanted to dress up like a character from Xanadu, The Great Gatsby or Donna Summer and dance and skate with other like-minded people? Join the insanity at Coney Island icon Lola Star’s infamous roller disco at Lakeside in Prospect Park, where you need to unleash your inner Roller Blade vixen to keep up with the crowd. Costumes are highly encouraged at this kitschy and mostly adults-only roller-skate dance party, so be sure to dress to dazzle your fellow skaters. Make sure to check dreamlandrollerrink.com for the full schedule so that you know what costume to wear!
This hugely popular open-air dance party is the definition of Sunday Funday! Head to Ridgewood’s outdoor Nowadays space to shake your tail feathers to jams provided by an ever-changing lineup of DJs. The ongoing summer party series kicks off in the late-afternoon and ends—yep, you guessed it—at 10pm.
Fact: You will work up a sweat at this dance party, which kicks off with a pre-party meditation at 6pm, followed by a slate of guest DJs spinning their best tracks to get your happy feet tapping. The banger ends at 10pm, so you'll definitely wake up the next day feeling refreshed (and maybe a little sore from tearing up the dancefloor).
