Purgatorio Comes to NYC

Purgatorio Comes to NYC

Dante’s Divine Comedy blends the vulgar with the bland, horror with happiness, and the macabre with the comedic. The same can be said of Club Purgatorio (whose name lends itself to the aforementioned Italian literature), which provides legal Halloween enthusiasts with a consummate experience this year. Created just for the Halloween season, Club Purgatorio will be taking place in the heart of New York City – Times Square – and promises its patrons a scary, sensual, and scintillating experience.
 
Club Purgatorio was born out of the minds and crew of NYC’s The Box. Cradled in the streets of the Lower East Side, The Box combines the pulsating music of a club with burlesque acts and circus tricks for a one-of-a-kind nightlife experience. ClubPlanet describes it as “a genuine 1930’s-style vaudeville saloon,” but with the decadence of the top nightlife spots in the world. The Box takes all of this – the vaudevillian appeal paired with hot music and even hotter acts – throws in a Halloween twist, and – voile! – Club Purgatorio is born.
 
Taking place from October 15 through the 31st, Club Purgatorio will feature a variety of interactive acts, a self-described “museum of Halloween oddities.” Each level of the three-story event space will have a different environment, but all promise to combine the macabre with the scantily clad, the scary with the uber-sexy, and all will be set to thumping music. The 21+ crowd will be able to enjoy all of this while sipping on cocktails, cognac, and the like.
 
Halloween celebrates the scary, the sexy, the funny, and everything in between. Why not commemorate the holiday at Club Purgatorio, an event that brings all of that – plus alcohol – to the people of New York City?
