After Hours at TransWeek

It has been said that the late-night activities are the heart and soul of TransWeek!

After Hours during TransWeek are a special time for attendees to meet after the conclusion of scheduled activities to socialize, chat, have a beverage or two, share some yummy hot hors d’oeuvres, and have some laughs!TransWeek continues its long tradition of informal late-night gatherings with increased options for 2023 for you to find that perfect spot to unwind from the day’s activities and socialize with fellow attendees.

TransWeek 2023 is proud to announce the addition of Jimmy’s Hideaway, 179 Commercial Street, as a late-night gathering spot. Here you will find free hot hors d’oeuvres and snacks exclusively for registered attendees. Jimmy’s is a quaint spot to have a libation and quiet enough to find conversation. Open nightly Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 10:00 pm.

Tin Pan Alley, 269 Commercial Street, returns with its nightly live music and fabulous cocktails. For those seeking a late-night dining option, Tin Pan Alley will keep its kitchen open until 11:00 pm during TransWeek. Tin Pan Alley will be the place if you are looking for a late-night snack after Comic Bingo or a meal after the Follies.

On Friday, after the Follies, come party at Club Purgatory, 11 Carver Street, in the basement—it’s “Almost Heaven.” This after party will also be an optional costume party for all you witches, princesses, and priates, yaaaarrr!

Enjoy After Hours! Expect to see TransWeek organizers and staff, first-timers, seasoned attendees, and the person with whom you just had lunch
