What: Quiet Clubbing at Brookfield Place
When: Saturday, December 12th & Sunday, December 13 from 7pm till 11pm
Where: Winter Garden at Brookfield Place (above the WTC Path hub)
The Winter Garden is hosting two quiet clubbing events this weekend. Quiet clubbing is a new way to club. When you arrive you’ll receive a pair of wireless headphones. You can adjust the volume and choose between three different DJs by flipping a switch on the headphones. The headphones light up based on which DJ you’re listening to, so you can dance along with those listening to the same DJ as you. There will be three live DJs spinning — the green DJ will spin top 40 and kids’ favorites, the red DJ 80s, 90s, and 2k music, and the blue DJ will play hip-hop. The event is free, but you must swipe your credit card to receive your special headphones. At the end of the night you must return the headphones or you’ll wind up with a $100 charge.
