Oosh: SeaMen Review

A sea of sailors at Oosh! By anonymous contributor

After hearing about the fun and games one month before, I decided to give HK party outfit Oosh a shot as they held their second SZ event, a sailor-themed dress-up party naughtily named Oosh Seamen on April 28.

I rocked up nice and early as the first show was scheduled for 10:30pm. After getting my name checked off at the door by the outrageous drag queen at the door, I walked in to find funky music playing to a dance floor almost empty save for some flashing lights and a couple of brave foreigners in whacky outfits and sailor hats. I could have just turned around and gone home as the metro was still running, but I’m so glad I didn’t!

I ordered myself a gin and tonic that was definitely more gin than tonic, and before I knew it I had a sailor hat on my head and was being introduced to some very handsome strangers. Not only that, but there was a steady stream of people arriving and the mood was getting much more like a party!

The shows were a combination of standard gogo boy dancing and some kinky interaction. First some guests were asked on stage by the crazy host in short shorts, to tie up the gogo, SM style. I think it was supposed to be about tying knots, but whatever, it was sexy af. They had more activities later and it seems everyone was getting at least a free drink for taking part, which made me wish the guy would choose me. Next time I’ll have to dress up better I guess.

By 12, the place was packed and the crowd ranged from tipsy to very drunk, the bar and dance areas were a writhing hot mess, and all the tables were taken by guests enjoying those seriously strong mixed drinks and a whole lot of tequila shots. Compared to what I had heard before, the venue, B1 in the OCT Loft area, was well decked out with party lights, mirror ball, video screens and smoke machine, but I think they went overboard with the smoke.

Well, venturing outside for a breath of fresh air, I found even more people out there, chatting and drinking, and even being served BBQ from the kitchen, which is something different from what you see at normal gay parties. And outside is where I really saw some amazing costumes. There were several glamorous drag queens and some very cute sailor twinks. Then there were those like me that didn’t have time to dress up, but not so lucky to be given a sailor hat. I guess they weren’t early like me!

The crowd was easily 90% gays, and about half Chinese I guess. The girls were definitely having a good time, but I doubt there were any lala connections made that night. Well, Shenzhen is a big city and there’s room for every type of party, and I’m happy I got to experience Oosh. I think I’ll be back again when they do their video game theme party on May 26. Will you join me?

RAINBOW PARTY REVIEW

The following article has been written by a paying guest of RAINBOW and the content is completely her own.She does not work for this blog or the organisers of RAINBOW.

 

Saturday was a long, tiring day. We drove through to Shenzhen for the Rainbow party. I was about to bail halfway through to Shenzhen with a headache pounding in the back of my head and a sore body but I am glad I didn’t.

Usually I won’t just head down for any night out on the town, because of distance, but when I saw posts in the WeChat groups talking about Rainbow, I knew I had to go. 

I told my partner we should arrive fashionably late, because usually people pre- drink somewhere then head over to the party so as not to be the firsts one there, we would arrive on time with everyone else. 

Not this time.

When we got there the music was pumping, the dance floor was full and the sound of ice cubes rattlng made me thirsty and ready to party!

The location of the party was Fade Bar. Awesome location for a private party, it is not on a bar street so no randoms can ambush the particular vibe these parties hold. 

It is perfect. The bar is just big enough, the service is fast, the dance floor is solid with the DJ jamming his selected list for the night.

There is a chill area, on the left side of the bar with sofas for those who prefer the more intense chatting scene and there is a pool table, which was not used because we were having way too much fun to be distracted by a game of pool. 

Outside, there are a few chairs and tables where there were constant chatting and laughing between old and new friends.

The organisers also asked the smokers to do so outside so the non-smokers felt uncomfortable, nobody minded as we’re all friends. 

The bar, the staff and the drinks are always a winner. They had a selected list of drinks listed at various spots along the bar which made it easy for both the bartenders and the people on the other side of the bar.

Their service is quick and the selected menu for the food and drinks are always posted in the group before the party. You won’t be thirsty for even a second. 

I give a shout out to Emma and Laura who were the hosts of this party and a few more that I have attended in the past. Be sure to always be welcomed with a warm hug and a finger pointed towards the direction of the bar to make yourself as comfortable as you can be in your own shoes. 

You guys deserve another round of those TASTY blowjob shots traveling across the party by your shotgirl for the evening, the lovely Eryn. What a winner.

You can be sure count on them to have the people there on time and having a good time by the first drink.

Also, a big thank you to Joe, the owner of Fade Bar, thank you for being such a fun host and letting us invade your bar and dancing the paint off of your dance floor. I’m sure the location will be recommended for parties that awaits our insanity!

The crowd, most of all, is what attracts me to these parties, there are the locals you see at each party and then there are a few new faces you connect with. 

This community is such a happy, free-spirited and easy going group of people that whether I walked in alone with my partner or with my friends,  I would have still had the same amount of fun I had with my friends. I believe it is not the music, nor the alchohol nor the location which makes these parties what it is.

It is the people who attend that brings the vibe and the party. 

Another shout out to the organisers who has such a strong amount of support at these parties!

It is proof that the future parties will be nothing but successful. 

Every time, I go home with double the stories of the previous party. My suggestion to you is this: 

BE AT THE NEXT PARTY!

There is no question. If you are a few miles too far from the city, make a trip. I do occasionally and never regret the decision to do so. They are all insanely RAD and FUN. 

Every time I leave Shenzhen, I leave with plans of moving there, then there then would be no doubt about missing a single one of these parties. 

The question you should ask  is : “ Will you see me at the NEXT Rainbow party? Sure thing. PUT THOSE TICKETS ON HOLD! 

I’ve heard the next party with be a pre-EUROVISION party on 12th May and I cannot wait!
