He has impressed me several times with his track selection and skills; can't wait to spread our wings trogether in Brooklyn's newest queer dance space.

***

Sutherland partnered with Yondr to create a phone-free and camera-free nightclub. Our goal is to offer you an opportunity to focus on the present moment. We encourage you to take a break from the digital world for a few hours, immerse yourself in the music, connect with others in the venue and let go of your inhibitions. What happens at Sutherland, stays at Sutherland.

You will be given a small, self-locking pouch at the door to keep your phone locked in throughout the night. You can keep the locked pouch in your pocket or safely leave it at coat check if you prefer. Please send your last messages before you enter the venue to avoid delays and be prepared to lock your phone as soon as you walk through the door. We recommend you turn your phone off or set it to do not disturb to keep it from vibrating all night. When you exit, our staff will unlock your pouch and you will have access to your phone again. There is no re-entry.
