Drink + Dance + Swim
You are invited to experience The Palms, a hedonistic resort in the creative heart of Queens.

Saturday, August 13th | 12pm through Late Night...
of LCD Soundsystem
Mahoney (DFA / LCD Soundsystem) brings his brilliant / world-renowned sense of super-disco meets jump-rock meets dark-bass-groove. LCD Soundsystem may be no more, but in some cases the parts are greater than the whole. Prepare to dance. Mahoney goes on at 7pm, Saturday.
House Of House
The New York City-based dance music duo of Saheer Umar (SuperFamily) and Olivier "Liv" Spencer (Still Going, DFA). House Of House was formed to inject a grandiose and soul-searing bit of drama onto the dance floor, a lost element that made legends of the great clubs of yesteryear. Now, with international acclaim, House of House promises rock the perfect afternoon open-air set, Saturday, 5pm through 7pm.
Two sound areas, one inside the other in the open air, provide intelligent techno to world-fusion-funk and crowd-pleaser classics from Dan Wender, Zemi17 and the Cumba Mela dj's Thornato, Atropolis and 2melo. The music goes on at noon and continues into the late night...
Plus, food by Luke's Lobster, dumpster-pools by Macro-Sea, coconut cocktails, kisses from strangers, glimpses of nudity and those small forbidden moments that make summer afternoons in New York City worthwhile.
Saturday, August 13th : Noon through late night...
$10 before 3pm : $20 after : Strictly 21+
Sunday, August 14th | 12pm through Midnight
The Gorges Boys
The Gorges Boys play the beautiful, fun beats you love. Their selections match what you expect on a relaxed August afternoon mixing hip-hop, electro and indie-pop in a way that calls for champagne, swim suits and easy abandon.
The Self Portrait Project
Self portraits, summer cocktails and a clothing-optional environment? What could go wrong?
Considered by some to be the best food truck this side of the Mississippi, Mexicue serves fantastically good samples of Mexican and Southern American Barbecue.
Sunday, August 14th : Noon through Midnight
$10 all day + free "Dark & Stormy" cocktails if it rains.
The pools are open rain or shine, the dj's play inside the bank building.
...and then some...
Events at The Palms will continue every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Labor Day Weekend. Expect exquisite cocktails, incredible headlining talent and moments that speak to the poetic, hedonistic and absurd soul of New York City.
