The NY Pin Up Club
The NY Pin Up Club has been producing retro themed photo shoots, burlesque shows and events since 2006! Our shoots are inspired by the classic photos, drawings, and paintings of the late ’40s and ’50s, occasionally spanning anywhere from the ’30s-’60s. They are the kind of sexy, kitschy, fun images of pretty girls that guys would “pin up” in their lockers or at the garage. We offer different themes every month for your modern pin up needs!
The NY Pin Up Club has been producing burlesque in NYC since 2007. Our monthly show ran for more than 5 years at venues such as The Slipper Room and The Bowery Poetry Club, intermixed with one off shows and events at many other venues. We showcased our large scale themed spectaculars known as “The Big Tease” at multiple venues around the city, the last of which was the Main Room at LPR in 2014! We are thrilled to bring our “Little Tease” show to the Gallery at LPR.
Join us as we recapture the charm of classic pin ups. Sign up for our mailing list at www.nypinupclub.com to stay up to date on events, and join the club at meetup.com/nypinupclub. Follow us on Instagram & Twitter @nypinupclub & be sure to like us on Facebook Facebook.com/nypinupclub.
Minx Arcana is “The Dark Flame of Desire,” a sultry NYC burlesque vixen whose signature style infuses sumptuous vintage glamour with hints of noir, the occult, and a rock ‘n’ roll spirit.
A classically-trained dancer and alum of the New York School of Burlesque (2010), Minx has graced stages in North America and Europe, with notable performances at The Prague Fringe Festival (2016), The New York Burlesque Festival (2017, 2015 & 2013), The Miss Coney Island Pageant (2015), The Toronto Burlesque Festival (2015), The Show Me Burlesque & Vaudeville Festival (2015), and The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival (2014).

Her on-screen appearances include Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Phenomenon, PlayMe Burlesque, Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story, The Cruel Tale of the Medicine Man, and ABC News’ Nightline.
An active player in the New York City burlesque circuit, Minx has worked her magic at such renowned performance venues as Duane Park, The Highline Ballroom, Le Poisson Rouge, and Coney Island USA as well as trailblazing cocktail bars like Employees Only, Macao Trading Co., and Apotheke.
