Though not exclusively queer, many LadyFag parties (some of the best gay events in the city) are hosted in this massive complex in Bushwick known as Avant Gardner - which has three indoor spaces (The Great Hall, The Kings Hall, The Circus) and one outdoor space (Brooklyn Mirage). These parties are a cross between performance art and a house/techno club, and people usually take off their shirts within the first hour of being inside. The venue requires you to connect your credit card with a wristband to pay for everything from coat check to your drinks - a system that leads to insane efficiency, and will make your next coat check experience feel like the seventh circle of hell.
