Cult of Distraction

The Cult of Distraction is one of the main experiences you go to Burning Man for. We will lavish you with gifts in our luxurious COD Club with fantastic drinks, great conversation, dancing, and an incredible environment, but be warned there is NO barter and be prepared for a quick ejection if you ask for ANYTHING. The COD Club is a “Gift Bar” (we also operate as a share bar) meaning you get a gift from us based on Cult of Distraction principles. All you have to do is be yourself and make a connection, but try and be difficult and you will end up providing the entertainment for everyone else.

We will be open during the day as a lazy smoothie and electrolyte bar. Once the sun sets the COD Club comes alive and doesn’t die until you see the sun again the next morning. Tuesday and Thursday the COD Club may only open at 11 pm (or so). Feel free to stop on in anytime, get out of the hot sun, cool your feet for a while, and make connections with random strangers that may just change your life.
