TROUPE429: LGBTQ Bar & Performance Space is a neighborhood bar for people of all identities, sexual orientations, genders, races/ethnicity, & spiritual beliefs.
But what does
Troupe = a group of entertainers, performers, and unique individuals who hang out together.
429 = "G-A-Y" on the telephone key pad. During the Stonewall-era, this was used as a code to know if someone else was "429."
How It All Began
Hell's Kitchen, NYC
In January 2016, the TROUPE429 pop-up party began at an underground bar hidden beneath the Italian restaurant Cielo at The Mayfair in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City.
Folks gathered to dust off our Nintendo64 for Mario Kart races, catch up with friends over beer pong, bop to throwback tunes, and enjoy each other's company in a welcoming and safe space.
The party now has a permanent home in Connecticut! TROUPE429: LGBTQ Bar & Performance Space is officially open 7 days a week at 3 Wall Street in Norwalk, CT. Visit us today!
