Friends, lovers and beautiful strangers!

Join us to celebrate the MELT closing party at The Bowery Haus, a radical drag dress up party of epic proportions. Come as your interpretation of Australian icon Leigh Bowery for this extreme fashion/ costume dance party extravaganza.

In collaboration with local fashion gang The Brisbane Powerhouse and musical overlord Sullivan, The Bowery Haus will be a magical night of dancing, self expression and STRONG LOOKS. Some of Brisbane’s best DJs will set the soundtrack on the Turbine Platform, which will be transformed into a glittery dance haus reminiscent of 90s Brisbane raves and the 80s club kid scene.

The Bowery Haus is a costume party celebrating inclusivity, self expression and one of Australia’s most legendary queer icons. We invite all lovers of dressing up to join this free event and remember that channeling Leigh is not about expensive clothes, but about creativity and a radical spirit.

Prizes for most creative looks. Pre-dance stretching recommended.
