No Holds Barbara

Get into the costume party spirit in vintage threads.

Maybe you've watched too many party movies. Maybe you've always wanted to throw on a costume and head to a bar. Either way, come October 7 at Barbara, it's dress-up time. And, the pocket-sized Valley bar is teaming up with the folks at SWOP Clothing Exchange to really help you get into swing of things.

If you have your own retro threads to wear while you have a few drinks, that's fine — but dropping by SWOP's West End store to find a recycled outfit really is part of the fun. They'll give you 10% off if you're picking up something to wear to No Holds Barbara, which is a thoroughly appropriate name for a party that throws caution to the sartorial wind. And, isn't getting ready what most of a costume party is all about?

Well, that and dancing wearing outfits of the rad and bad variety, all of which you can expect here. The fun runs from 9pm until 2am. BYO your best (or worst) vintage fashion and a partying attitude.
