Nerdy Burlesque on Friday nights at Mythology Lounge

Geek-Mythology brings neo-burlesque back to H Street NE

Mythology Lounge teams up with Washington, DC burlesque powerhouse Cherie Sweetbottom (Evil League of Ecdysiasts, House of Sweetbottom) to create nerd-centric Friday night themed parties featuring burlesque entertainment.

If Mythology Lounge sounds familiar, it should—the location hosted Dark Side Bar DC, a Star Wars themed pop-up that also had locations in Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY. 

The new concept, Geek Mythology, kicks off on Friday, March 16th with a Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme, with live music from DC musician Maryjo Mattea (Two Dragons and a Cheetah, Day Trippers, Color Palette) and her special Buffy-themed band, Dingoes Ate My Baby.  The evening will also feature burlesque entertainment from Ms. Sweetbottom and performers Baron Atomy and Annie Bawdy Wansom, with DJ G-Mills spinning tunes between live performances.

On Friday, March 23rd, Geek Mythology will take a more romantic trip to the world of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge, featuring Ms. Sweetbottom and Baltimore’s Sicilian Queen, Maria Bella of Gilded Lily Burlesque.

On Friday, March 30th, patrons will enter the world of fantasy writer Neil Gaiman, known for the Sandman comics and American Gods, among other works.  The evening will feature burlesque performances from Maria Bella and Doe Bardot.

Tickets will be $15 advance and $20 at the door, but patrons who show up in on-theme costume or cosplay will receive a $5 discount on door sales. 

In addition to live entertainment, Geek Mythology will feature themed cocktails, a limited food menu, and a DJ spinning all night between performances.

Mythology Lounge is unfortunately not wheelchair-accessible.
