For this year’s Office Christmas Party I decided to take everyone here at The Sartorialist (me) down to see my friend James Habacker, the owner of The Slipper Room on Orchard Street.
If you have ever seen the Friday and Saturday night burlesque shows then you already know how great they are. If you haven’t been yet, mark it on your calendar.
The shows are sexy, campy, outrageous and all together fun, imagine a John Waters movie meets a 1930′s Robert Doisneau photograph.
The showgirls are voluminous, curvy, and sometimes men. The crowd is typical downtown cool and show hosts are certifiable.
This is the kind of place I hoped I would go to when I moved to New York.
