QUEEN!

"Bow Down, Bitches"

Queen! has been making the queer circuit for close to 3 and a half years now as a residency night at Smartbar. Every Sunday, the fierce and fabulous descend on the night to enjoy underground House party vibes with a nod to the culture of the 80s and early 90s gay scene with its dimly lit dancefloor, leather seating and neon blue fixtures.

The venue is intimate and the crowd diverse, all here to soak up the nuanced, hedonistic atmosphere of the night’s selection of House and Disco. Our love affair with drag is becoming an obsession, and one of the hosts of the night: JoJo Baby, an original club kid, serve only to deepen this infatuation and adds to the attraction and character of the night. Not forgetting the rest of the queens that grace the venue, they all serve us a cocktail of glamour, genderfuckery and the avant-garde, as they flit in and out of the basement bar.

Queen! is a celebration of the nuanced, the individual and the collective. What’s also nice is the feeling that Queen! is not trying to compete with all the other nights in Boystown, it’s a modest affair but still a lot of fun. And the resident DJs of Michael Serafini, owner of legendary House label Gramaphone Records, Derrick Carter and Garrett David mean that you know what you’re getting, and what you’re getting is good.
