Dress to the nines!


 Dorian’s Parlor is a celebration of the Steampunk aesthetic, which blends history with the future and adds a healthy dose of what might have been. Patrons dance, sip cocktails, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and partake in a one-of-its-kind lineup of bands, DJs, dancers and high fashion from the foremost neo-vintage designers. Dorian’s Parlor is fast becoming a household name for those who love Steampunk and all things neo-vintage.

The June lineup features the return of the delightful Psyche Corporation, which is “one part cyberpunk trip-hop darkwave music, one part robotics exhibition, one part dreamscape art.” The much-loved White Elephant Burlesque Society returns as well with a gypsy cabaret full of vaudevillian burlesque Dorian’s Parlor also features New-England based band Jaggery, an art-rock collective which weaves instruments such as harp, viola, piano, contrabass, and drum kit with other-worldly vocal stylings. For something a little out of the ordinary, check out Walter Sickert and The ARmy of BRoken TOys, described as “a Dada-esque circus carnival run amuck.” This month’s fashion show will feature the delightful designs of Jeximé, and Tsirkus Fotografika’s RA Friedman will present the project’s most memorable and intriguing portraits and discuss his unorthodox photo methodology.

The next 21+ event will be held Saturday, June 4th, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., in the Ormandy Ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel, on the Avenue of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. Admission is $25, and includes a drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres.

You are Invited to Dorian's Parlor!


Every month like clockwork, an assortment of people converge on the Ormandy Ballroom at the Doubletree Hotel in Philadelphia. Young, old, students and professionals come together to dance, sip cocktails, enjoying hors-d'oeuvres and partake in a one-of-its-kind lineup of bands, DJs, circus performances and high fashion from foremost neo-vintage designers. Dressed to the nines, they have one thing in common – a love of the genre known as Steampunk.

Since its debut in June 2010, Dorian’s Parlor has been picking up steam, so to speak, with each event surpassing the last. It has been highlighted in media outlets such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, Geekadelphia, Culturemob, City Suburban News and Philadelphia Weekly. November’s event drew the largest crowd yet, with performances by the band Ego Likeness, DJ Johanna Constantine and a fashion show from Philadelphia's Delicious Boutique. December’s lineup features Steampunk author G.D. Falksen as MC, a performance by the neo-classical Steampunk band The Clockwork Dolls, vaudeville from The Slomski Brothers and a fashion show featuring the Philly-based corset designer MayFaire Moon. Philly’s own DJ Kiltboy will spin, and the 55-year old Amazing Amy will wow you with her flowing feats of flexibility. And if all that isn’t enough to draw your interest, there will also be a book reading by author Bernie Mojzes and portrait photography by Hugh Casey to help memorialize your fantastic finery. All aspects of the event’s production — lighting, sound, stage design and production management — are provided by Philadelphia’s own CircuitSix, LLC (www.circuitsix.biz) as part of their ongoing sponsorship and patronage of Dorian's Parlor.

The next 21+ event will be held Saturday, December 18th, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., in the Ormandy Ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel, on the Avenue of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. Admission is $25, and includes a drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres.

Upcoming Dorian's Parlor Event on November 27th


 Introducing the next Dorian's Parlor Event. Dandies mingle with aristocrats and daring explorers while sipping cocktails, enjoying hors d'oeuvres and partaking in a one-of-its-kind lineup of bands, DJs, circus performances and high fashion from foremost neo-vintage designers. They spill onto the sidewalk outside the Ormandy Ballroom and take over late-night food spots, attracting curious looks from passers by. Who are these mysterious people from another era?

Dorian’s Parlor is a monthly convergence of Steampunk and neo-vintage enthusiasts, a sensuous spectacle of vintage glamour highlighting the best of Philadelphia’s alternative culture. Steampunk is a fast-growing cultural phenomenon which melds Victorian aesthetics with modern (and sometimes futuristic) technology to create a fantastic spectacle of fashion, art, music and literature.

November’s lineup includes the immensely popular band Ego Likeness, DJ Johanna Constantine and a fashion show from the delectable Philadelphia's Delicious Boutique. Steampunk author G.D. Falksen will MC, the Royal Baritarian Players will perform, and an animated film by Adriel Garcia will be featured. Opera singer, Katie Kat (who trained with Maria Callas's voice coach and local soprano Trisha Kotch) is also on the play bill. Young adult Steampunk author Dianne K. Salerni will be in attendance as well, reading excerpts from her newest work. All aspects of the event’s production — lighting, sound, stage design and production management — are provided by Philadelphia’s own CircuitSix, LLC (www.circuitsix.biz) as part of their ongoing sponsorship and patronage of Dorian's Parlor.

The next 21+ event will be held Saturday, November 27th, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., in the Ormandy Ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel, on the Avenue of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. Admission is $25, and includes a drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres.
