Will there be food?

Some food will be available for purchase. We suggest you grab dinner before you arrive. Paris is filled with places to grab a bite late!

What should I wear?

We have a space themed-nightclub vibe that encourages costumes, play/cosplay and self expression! You can wear black pants or galaxy leggings, your favorite Sci-fi costume, or what you would wear to a nightclub on a Saturday night. Coming straight from the IAC to Yuri’s Night? Then you’re already in costume as a space professional!

Is this an all ages event?

Since this is a night club environment we don’t encourage people to bring kids. But just like at Burning Man, some people will. If you would bring your kids to a club, feel free to bring them to Yuri’s Night.
