Welcome to the Festival Bar
You may know it as the cabaret. You may know it as a warehouse at 5th and Fairmount. This year, it’s the Festival Bar. It’s a new spin on an old idea. The Festival Bar is a large warehouse that is comprised of two spaces: a black box theater, where we will present The European Lesson and louder, and a hangout space where you’ll find a healthy dose of post-show dancing and debauchery at the end of each Festival day.
625 NORTH 5th STREET • SW CORNER OF 5TH + FAIRMOUNT
21 + OVER • NO COVER • DOORS OPEN AT 10PM
The Festival Bar will offer friends, artists, techies, and show goers everything from video art to Indian take-out to Kenzinger on draught. It’s beautiful, spicy, and thirst-quenching all at once!
Victuals! Festival friend and barman Fergie will serve up brew, and culinary wizards from the likes of Tiffin and Konak will supply the grub. Yum!
Visuals! Media artist Lars Jan will create a ravishing series of visual media projections each night. You’ll also get to see the latest Festival photographs including shots from our lead photographer and longtime friend, JJ Tiziou.

Vibrations! Of course, there will also be dancing—DJs from all over the city will have you shaking it to your heart’s content. So put on your dancing shoes!
