Dances of Vice’s Heartbreak Hotel Ball x Pepe Rosso Social



If Hallmark cheesy Valentines aren’t your thing, you’ll find seduction, excitement, and mystery at the Dances of Vice’s Heartbreak Hotel Ball. Dances of Vices has made a name for itself as the premier producer of elaborate and avant-garde nightlife experiences—think House of Yes! meets Sleep No More. You know those crazy NYC stories your out of town friends are always clamoring for? This is where you get them. This month’s theme is a smokey, noir, Jazz Age vibe, and includes a peep-show cabaret and a VIP BDSM suite. Make sure to turn a look, as jeans are the only thing shamed here. Bonus: use code IDK20 for $20 off tickets!

Fuel up for your night of debauchery with dinner at Pepe Rosso Social. This hidden gem epitomizes rustic chic—iron-wrought farm tools mounted on white painted brick, and fresh flowers on every table illuminated by candles and luminous vines. Pass on the paninis in favor of the bistro’s burrata special, signature homemade pasta, and chef Stefano Bellato’s pastries. Then wash it all down with a bottle of Tuscan red because hey, it’s only Valentine’s Day weekend once a year.
