Caligula On-Premise Club Review

Caligula opened up in Queens, NY in the beginning of June 2013.  It is an on-premise club in which Friday nights are geared towards couples and single men and Saturday night is for couples only.    

The Club Itself

The club is located in Astoria.  There is plenty of parking and the club itself is two floors.  The first floor has a bar, dance floor, stage, seating and bathrooms.  The second floor has playrooms (both private and open) and bathrooms.  When we attended there was a person upstairs taking care of the playrooms, which we assume consists of changing sheets, letting couples into private rooms and making sure everything is operating smoothly in the play areas.


Couples should expect to pay between $85 - $100 on Saturday nights and $40 - $60 on Friday nights.  Single men should expect to pay approximately $100 on Friday nights.


As with other on-premise clubs, alcohol cannot be sold, therefore it is bring your own booze.  The club does provider bartenders to hold your bottle and to mix your drinks.

The Crowd

Considering we went for the grand opening weekend, we were quite disappointed with the crowd.  The vast majority of those in attendance were over forty years old.  Other than us there were two young attractive couples.  One did not swing at all and the other would not play on the first meeting.  The two groups who appear to be organizing the parties at this club are VIP Soiree and Roberto's.  The problem is that the Roberto's crowd is typically an over 40 crowd and that is the crowd that has appeared to show up on the night we went.  We were contacted by the hosts of Caligula to attend another party, but told them we would only attend if we received free admission due to the poor quality of the crowd the first time we went.  The hosts would only give us a 50% discount, we declined.  If the Swing Life Style (SLS) guest list is any indication, which typically it is, the quality of the crowd has not improved.


Unless the crowd improves, we recommend Taste (Manhattan), the Hamptons Party (Long Island) or any quality, pre-screened house party you can find.  If anyone else has attended recently and has found that the crowd has improved, meaning the majority of those in attendance are under forty and attractive, then please feel free to indicate so in the comments section and please include your SLS, Sexxy Mofo or SDC screen name so we can verify the comments.  Anonymous postings claiming how wonderful the club is will simply be deleted.

It must be wonderful to be under 40 and feel like the world revolves around your ever-so-sexy ass...It so happens that a magical thing happens when you are over 40...most people are aware as to who is more attractive than the next person, but as you can't help the fact that time keeps marching on you go a little yes, it's awesome to be amongst the young, beautiful, fit and attractive, but at the same time, if that is where you interests lie than you are condemning yourself to forever swim in your shallow little pool. The good news is that someday you too will be 40; perhaps by then you'll get lucky and grow a brain along with a somewhat saggy ass and wrinkles.

Someone is a little testy. Swinging is typically a couples activity. Being a couple, you have your partner that you likely have a deep emotionally connection with. When playing with other couples that will typically mean the emotionally connection can be either non existent or not so deep. Therefore what is of more significance is their attractiveness. Typically, younger people are more attractive than older people. So you are going to fault us for wanting to live the life that a lot of people fantasize about? Sleeping with young attractive people? Yes, we like to sleep with people that look like they came out of a fashion magazine or a Victoria secret catalog. Your issue is just that, yours. We seek physical beauty. It sounds like it has more to do with you being jealous than us being shallow. By the way, as I can tell you are such a fan of my writing, there is an updated review on Caligula scheduled to be posted two Saturdays from now ;-)

Hey guys. Just wanted to make a comment about this caligula swing club. BEST FUCKIN TIME IN MY LIFE!!!! This was my girl and I first swing club. Went in expecting a bunch of old n wrinklies but nope it was a good mixture of 20, 30, 40 and a sprinkle of 50 somethings. It was a lot of good looking people both guys and girls. It was about 50-60 people. The club has two floors. First floor bar area, dance floor, plenty of nice couches to lounge and meet and stripper pole for those brave enough. Though we found some activity on the first floor the second floor is the place to be. 3 private rooms and 2 open orgy rooms. Imagine walking into a room filled with elevated knee level mattresses big enough to hold 20-30 people, thats what was happening, standing room only!!! My girl and I didnt join in but we were definately all up in the business and no one minded us looking over there shoulders as they fucked, sucked dick and ate pussy. Girl on girl and guy on girl but no guy guy stuff. Didnt see any obviously gay guys, dont think this was theyre night or dont even no if this club cater to the gay crowd????? Anyway, my girl and I cant stop talking about this club. HOWEVER!!! While there met a cool couple who were regulars on the swinger scene and put us up on le trapeze a on premise club in manhattan. They said compared to le trapeze caligilas was second rate. Good! But no comparrison to le trapeze. So this weekend my girl and I are gonna checkout le trapeze and see what goes on there. Our goal was just to observe and learn on this venture. But at le trapeze we're going full on swing and live life to the fullest. Expect to pay $70-$100 per couple at caligulas. Looked up le trapeze gonna cost $125-$150 to get in. Drop in the bucket for all the fun we're gonna have. Checking out le trapeze but definately going back to caligulas, WAS NOT disappointed we had a great time, clean place, attentive staff, clean linen, condoms provided--great place!! I never got why people wrote reviews. Thanks I appreciate it cuz ur write ups always made my research on things easier. But I always knocked review writers thinking they were very bored people living dull lives with nothing better to do than write a comment about how great some coffee maker they just bought was. Sorry guys but now I get it. Ur not wiered ur just so passionately satisfied about ur purchuse and/or experience that u want to share ur joy and open up the opportunity for others to make the same purchase or do the same act so they too can feel what u feel and/or experience what youve experienced. Thats why I wrote this long ass post cuz I wanted to cover all ur curiosities about this club and what u may find at similar clubs. Told my girl dont ever ever again ask me about going to no fuckin movies, broadway shows, ice skating, bowling--nothin!!!! Lol! I told her the only place of entertainment I want and need to go is a swing club. She agreed. We're addicted!!! We're now on a swing club tour we want to experience them all and meet as many like minded people as we can. Happy swinging.

Le Trapeze is only fair. A much better alternative is Checkmates.

I have hosted at Caligula and think it's the best OnPremise venue in NY. I happen to be over 40 and feel I'm quite attractive. I also know for a fact there is a huge over 40 crowd in this lifestyle as I run a large successful group on Long Island. The Hamptons Group is also over 40 actually over 50. My group is Suffolk County Swingers on SLS. We have an amazing group and if you get the chance check is out. We will be hosting this Saturday night 1/3/15 at Caligula. Join us for an amazing OnPremise experience!!

There's a very friendly crowd and staff here. Go with an open mind, be ready to mingle, know your boundaries and be clear about your desires; you'll have a great time.
