Do Not Sit On The Furniture

Do Not Sit On The Furniture. Yeah, that’s the name of the venue. And yeah, you really shouldn’t sit on the furniture because the music is too good to be on your ass. And tonight for their weekly Thursday party “GuestHouse”, they have special guest DJ, Panic Bomber.
Off on a corner on Washington and 16th, Do Not Sit On The Furniture is a new venue venture of legendary DJ/Producer Behrouz and Will Renuart. You might know them from the pickle, The Electric Pickle. Another name we love. Been to the Pickle on a Tuesday before? Then you might be familiar with Slap & Tickle. Now, move that two days later and to a new location, and you’ve got “GuestHouse,” which debuted earlier this month.
“GuestHouse” is the brain child of key rat and local DJ Santi Caballero. For nine years he’s been building a rep as a local talent, holding it down at Slap & Tickle and Midtown’s Bardot for over a year. But that wasn’t enough. He wanted more time in the booth and more beats to play. The sort of outlet he hopes to find with the Thursday party that is “GuestHouse.” So don’t expect the typical SoBe asshole bouncers, laughable cover charge, top 40 songs, or even tables you can sit at and text all night long. Expect the opposite. Lovable bouncers (have you met the guys from the Pickle?), $5-$10 cover for guys ONLY, a marathon of nu-disco meets electro and deep house, and Santi’s funky beats along with and eclectic mix of local and national guests curated entirely by Santi himself. Oh and tables, but really, you shouldn’t sit. Unless you want to be judged. And this is the kind of place where no one judges, unless you don’t dance. In that case, don’t sit and don’t even come.
“GuestHouse” is every Thursday at Do Not Sit On The Furniture to get you in the right state of mind, Santi’s put together a 30 minute mix , highlighting the tone and vibe of the party. Have a listen.
