For one night only Navel brings to life SWALLOW, a special space where creativity and nightlife combine. Designed by the LA based artist Alison Veit and the founder of Amore Agency, Noemi Polo, SWALLOW arrives bearing freedom as it’s gifts. 

The “concept club” will feature a glowing bar serving “Swallow” cocktails conceived by Yola Mezcal, a dance floor with curving transparent walls, and a red UV sauna filled with sand and tinged with a custom scent crafted by Julianne Lee. And, of course, there will be music. Not only will DJ’s Mai, Buckmonster, Heart Pressure and Goodsafeperson be on hand to provide a constant soundtrack for the evening, but there will aslo be a soundscape performed live by abstract pop extraordinaire SOPHIE. 

SWALLOW takes place on Friday the 13th at 1611 Hope Street. Purchase tickets online or at the door, but don’t fret if the end of summer/beginning of fall season change has left you counting your pennies. Organizers of the event promise that nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds, message contact@navel.la and they’ll work something out. Purchase tickets here.
