Katt’s Closet & Burlesque Lounge
We are located in the Historic Old Blaisdell Hotel. It was built in 1912 and houses one of only two remaining working, manually operated elevators in the United States. The other is in San Francisco. Our space is accommodating enough to host 25 guests for our live, in-house performances.
Our goal at Katt's Closet is to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment for all people to learn about performance art and particularly Burlesque. We hold weekly open classes, and produce local shows for Hawaii's multi-talented performer community. We also provide discrete transformation services for anyone who wants to dress up as someone other than themselves. Additionally, we collect, curate and sell vintage clothes & goods acquired here in Hawaii and abroad in our vintage shop pop-up store.
We have classes for all levels and for those who have no desire to perform as well. We offer an open and accepting environment for all people to come, let loose and have some fun! Private and small group classes available.
We partner with local artists, artisans, healers & creators to bring curated vintage clothing, jewelry and artistic finds to our in-studio, vintage pop-up shop every month. Please see our current calendar below for dates and information.
We welcome the opportunity to produce private events either in our historic loft or at your location of choice with a variety of artists and performances tailored to your needs from bachelorette parties to birthday bashes.
