If you had dancing while holding a bowl full of spaghetti on your bucket list for the year, we have some good news. Georgia Room, an influencer-heavy party spot from the same team behind scene-y nightlife venues Jac’s on Bond and Ray’s Bar, is throwing a “spaghetti disco” on April 27. The lounge’s chef will pass out bowls of dancefloor spaghetti (gluten-free and vegan substitutions are available), while DJs spin disco tunes to boogie to. It’s all going down at the mezzanine level of Manhattan’s Freehand Hotel, starting at 8 p.m. until late. Tickets for entry are $25 per person and can be purchased online.
