Foursquare Tips

  • The bawdy hosts and performers change every week at Floating Kabarette!, a weekly cabaret show (Sat 10:30pm). The red-lit island tables on the indoor lake are the most romantic seats.
  • Go for the Floating Kabrette on Saturdays. Awesome space with avant-garde performances every night.
  • From international film competitions to release parties for groundbreaking musicians and hilarious comedy acts, Galapagos is a crossroads of New York's art and culture scene.
  • GUMBO = Gay DUMBO Party. Galapagos is the home of DUMBO's first and only gay party. Parties are twice a month with rotating DJs and cute mix of BK and Manhattan gays. And free haircuts! Say what?
  • One of the best thing about this place is the monthly CreativeMornings.com series they host.
