The spa is going disco this week, as the infamous When In Robe party returns on March 23rd with an extremely funky line up. Headlining this week is a DJ set from disco ensemble Escort, who will be throwing down their critically acclaimed modern take on that disco funk, along with a set from vinyl afficianado Wyllys, disco king Speakerbot, and of course, our favorite resident, Subset.
If you haven't been to When In Robe yet, here's the rundown. When you arrive to our beautiful spa, we'll hand you a robe, a locker key, and a free glass of champagne to get you started. You'll change into your bathing suit and robe and enter the spa, which has been converted into a night club with full light and sound.
Party in one of our two rooms - the wet lounge with hot tub, steam room, saunas, cold plunge, and spa treatments, or our dry lounge, with dance floor, full bar, and some bangin' music. We also have FREE FOOD so you're never hungry and tons of random fun shit for you to play with.
These parties have been creating a lot of buzz and this one will sell out. We've been hailed as the #1 thing to do on a Sunday by Time Out NY, we've been talked about in VICE and Thrillist, and we always have a couple of tricks up our sleeve to make sure everyone has an incredible time.
Escort is a modern take on disco by Dan Ballas and Eugene Cho, keeping the soul and vibe of the classic 70s dance music and putting on a modern spin on it. Their self titled album was featured in Rolling Stone's top 50 albums of 2012, they were featured as one of Time Out NY's best live acts of 2007, and their video for 'All Through The Night' was rated one of the top 50 videos of the 2000s by Pitchfork. Check out their track 'Cocaine' or the Tiger and Woods remix of their latest single, 'Barbarians', to see what the deal is.
Wyllys has been spinning funky music since he was 15 years old, making a name for himself on the festival scene with appearances at Summer Camp, Mountain Jam, Bear Creek, Camp Bisco, and some legendary marathon sets on Jam Cruise. He's one of the rare people who can say he's shared the stage with Justin Martin and The Magician, as well as members of Umphrey's McGee and The Trey Anastasio Band. His sets blend nu-disco, funk, house, and pure party music that will keep you moving.
Speakerbot is robot DJ alias of Aashish Bansal, who spins the greatest mix of funky disco, deep house, and everything in between. Do yourself a favor and stop whatever you are doing right now, and go listen to his Digital Fantasy mixtape series (volume 2 for life).
Subset is the greatest living resident DJ in the world, and in the rare club of people who have appeared in both Time Out NY and Time Out Dubai, which is pretty much like winning a Grammy. He's been blowing minds every week as the host of Webster Hall's infamous BASSMENT Saturdays, and has been rocking the house at When In Robe since it's inception. A true DJ who enjoys nothing more than playing great music, he also put out an incredible remix of Above and Beyond's 'Sun and Moon' that you should have already listened to.
Due to the nature of this event, we cannot offer refunds. We do have a supply of robes and sandals, but we highly encourage you to bring your own and add to the party!
