Troupe429: LGBTQ Bar & Performance Space is a neighborhood bar for people of all beliefs, genders, races, and sexualities.
WHAT IT MEANS
BEHIND THE NAME
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."
HELL'S KITCHEN, NYC
How It All Began
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 will now have a permanent home! coming Summer 2017 we are excited to open the doors to Troupe429: LGBTQ Bar & Performance Space in Norwalk, CT.
