Event description

HOMO EROTICA - Un Ballo in Maschera

IMAGINE, if you will, a steam-punk masquerade ball. Attendees in a mask; perhaps a string of diamantés. And little else. Sometimes less is more. It is a summer time party after all. Of course there will be those who go quite over the top with their outfit. A pup hood is a mask so expect the pups at the ball en masse! Now, go use your imagination...

Dress suggestions: a mask / steam punk / jewels / nothing but shoes / carnival wear / Renaissance / a Vandyke / a pair of gold speedos - wear what makes you feel fabulous and gets you in the mood for an unadulterated evening of high campery and hedonistic pleasure

Disco, pop and house upstairs from 9pm with performances at 11pm + 1am

Techno in the dirty, filthy basement from 10pm

Safety & Wellbeing
If you have any questions or concerns before the night, please feel free to hit us up via email (hello @ buffevents . com).  And during the party you can talk with one of our roving team  (they will be wearing a lanyard),  or ask one of the lovely people working in the cloaking area, behind the bar, or one of the security team. We generally have a quiet space where you or someone who needs it can take time out.

Your privacy is very important to us. Our official photographer will take pictures of subjects who agree to them being published and we send these pictures for another round of approval to ticket holders before publishing them online.

If you subsequently change your mind and don’t want your picture featured,  please help us identify the picture and we’ll be happy to un-publish it.

We don’t allow guests to take pictures and videos of others (except performers on stage) unless you’ve obtained the subject’s explicit consent.  Generally,  we respectfully ask patrons to keep phone activity to a minimum and instead enjoy the party!
