The New York Times calls Company XIV’s critically acclaimed shows “sexy-glamorous, scintillating & decadent” works of “dazzling genius.” Time Out New York says they’re the “perfect hot date” and Condé Nast Traveler calls them “playful, naughty and so sensational.” They’re “an incredible feast for the senses” raves ABC-TV’s Kelly Ripa.

Théâtre XIV is a boutique, 175-seat cabaret venue located at 383 Troutman Street in the heart of graffiti alley in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This converted warehouse invokes Versailles decadence spliced with Prohibition dance halls and features scantily clad performer-bartenders who pop champagne, pour Brooklyn-crafted absinthe, mix speakeasy cocktails and serve VIP patrons.
