I've been coming to Gemini off and on for close to 20 years. Honestly- I how can I describe what this place has meant to me- the adventures, the experiences, the amazing friendshps that started here. It's truly an amazing hidden gem in the sometimes depressing sprawl of Los Angeles.

I just love this place!! Everyone is so friendly!! Our host, Alexander Lehr is so a wonderful, generous, amazing man! The manor is so unique with so many cool items from years gone by. Your eyes can't take it all in on one visit!! I always see something new every time I go to the fun parties!
One must come to one of the many parties to see this unique fun Manor. I like to call it Disneyland on Acid!!! LOL

I had the opportunity to visit Gemini Manor during my first week in LA and I am
so grateful that I was invited to this magical world of art, spirits, gentle
souls, singing, laughing and revelry. The manor is decorated with incredible
collectables and exquisite vision. Every room has a unique flavour and in one of
the parlours there was live music and in another gazebo style room there was a
reading by Marrus. It touched me very much and I'm really looking forward to

I'm so sorry to hear about Lisa. I just found out through your website. I'd known Lisa for over 30 years when we both worked on Melrose. She was one of my first haircut clients. The last time I saw her was when I cut and colored her hair last year. That must have been shortly before she passed. Lisa was one of the nicest people I've ever known and although we didn't see much of each other through the years, the idea that she's not among us anymore saddens me to no end. However, I know how much she loved you and I know that you contributed so much to her happiness. Please know that I'm thinking about her and may she rest in peace. Joanne

Hi Alex and all.
I am so sorry to hear the news about lisa. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I nursed my Father in his last few months of cancer, and my present partner Grace, is recovering from breast cancer. I know what you are going through. Stay strong, Lisa will always be around in the background making sure all is well.
The 1999 Burning Man trip where we all met will allways have a very special place in my heart. I am proud to be on the burning van pic. Part of such an incredible bunch of friends.
Peace love unity respect, plur JP.

Remember me? Burning Man 1999. Ex Husband of Genevieve. I suddenly realize that messages from EdElkin were going to my junk filter.
Firstly my best regards to you all, I have been browsing your web site, and I see the Pic of us all at BM 1999 that's me holding the end of the flag. I have very precious memories of my 2 years in California, and there is no doubting that if I had stayed married for one more year and had my green card I would still be there.
Gemini Manor was a wonderful experience, as was meeting some real cool people there. It's nice to know you are still hosting events and when I get to visit LA again, which I must, I miss it. It will be a priviledge and a pleasure to come visit the Manor and catch up with you all.
Peace Love unity and respect. My very best regards to your good self and Lisa. Johnboy.

thank you alex and lisa for inviting me to your incredible gemini manor.
only in your farthest imagination would you believe that a place like this and people like this still exist. who knew??
wonderfully fun and enlighteningly joyous and beyond magical. visiting brought back so much of the era of the 60's where people connected and shared good will, good vibes,creativity,laughter and left their mortal problems at the door. I adored it.the creative minds the sights,the rooms,the art,the environment and the sharing. stimulating,fun and almost nirvanaesque.
i look forward to the burning man party sept 15th and sharing your incredible experience with others who'll enjoy it as much as i did.
it was so far out and trippy , exhilaratingly freeing, like a fellini movie and peter sellers comedy --with a bit of the trip and easy rider meets san francisco sausalito and early venice. what a time it was, it was.still.
great crowd..very heavy, fun and warm friendly good vibes,
feel like you never want to leave.......
the sixties live..i came i saw and i loved it.
peace and hugs from

Hey Alexander it's Sundance from the Sundance and Mona and Mike circle. How's it going? Well the reason I'm here is to ask a little consideration of a favor. Bo ngrip of Ma rijuana the Band dot com runs a Bong TV Internet Webcast of his adventures courtesy of Userplane. He's a Medical Mariju ana Patient and legalization activist, as our most of us interactive users. This vid chat we use allows us all to webcast and have formed a community. All of us are dying for a place to meet and I was wondering if you would be interested in hosting an event? Well hit me back at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm looking forward to the next time I get to hang with you guys. Unfortunately Mona moved away to Texas. Oh well. I went to visit her over new years and had a great time. Well time to medicate cause my back is killing me. If you think this will be seen by the wrong people just go ahead and delete but do write me back.

Deep within the caverns of my mind I always knew there was a secret place in the depth of Hollywood that has withstood the test of time. When I discovered Gemini Manor I was relieved to know I was not alone in my desire to be a creative nut. This special place has been a sacred ground of imagination and freedom for myself and many others. Free to let down my hair and dance in the rafters one Halloween Eve. Many a spark has flown thru the lustful air on a warm summer night at The Manor. Some say they never would have met any other way. Much thanks and warm hugs to the master of this magickal realm. We all love and appreciate you.

The Manor escapes description. I know because I've tried and get reduced to a puzzled expression in the middle of an awkward silence. It's an experience that cannot be imitated or forged. No other place can so many different, fasinating people come together and just be. No judgements passed, no expectations, just great music, great conversation and great company! Alex has created a real gem.

GEMINI MANOR is a cultural, spiritual, social melting pot that welcomes all breeds. The ambience comes ever more to life as you let yourself just BE.
I have met many wonderful and warm souls from all walks of life. Conversed with actors, musicians, doctors, strippers, blue collars, scholars, visitors from afar... the straight-laced and the far-fetched!
The music, the sights, the famous chili, the many rooms, and my favorite- the rooftop are all experiences to be had.
ALEXANDER is such a bright spirit. If you want to chat, you'll have to GRAB him as he runs past, though. This is because he is so busy making sure ALL are enjoying themselves, bless his gracious and beautiful heart!
Hugs like tomorrow's never coming...

I was first introduced to Alex, Lisa and The Manor at last years South seas Party. As I passed trough the walkway and i herd the music and the sounds of happiness I could feel a welcome change come over me. It Felt as if I found a new home and more of my missing family. Every visit after that has been a bit more Magical than the last. I knew I had to share this magic land with a few of my friends, then they told a few friends and so on. Alex and Lisa are two of the most generious and patient people I have ever meet. They have touched more lives then they will ever know and have inspired me to continue on the same path of love and empowerment to others even when that path gets very rough.
i recomend a visit to anyone ready to pass through the looking glass and come find your happy place, here is where I found mine.
Peace,Love and Power forever

Hey Alex - I've been coming to your events since 1988, and they are still as fun as ever. Always a new crew and the old standards as well, making the mix an ongoing adventure. So great to hang out with the artistis types, participate in Burningman, and join the sing alongs. Keep up the wonderful themes and invitationals - you can always draw a crowd that's willing to participate in Life as Art. - Marci@vitalenergycenter.com

The Gemini Manor? I've known of gatherings here for more than a year but never been till tonight, Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend in 2003. So we show up sometime after midnight to a party that's been going since 4pm and found this in the house of a very cool guy named Alex: An octagonal hot tub - indoors; Batman, the Incredible Hulk, and the Little Mermaid in a glass display case; several ceramic Santa Clauses in another glass display case; a room with a piano, pianist, guitar and bass jamming classic rock - I joined in with Elvis and "All Shook Up;" People met: Alex, Lisa, Lela, Jay, Phil, Mitch, Joe, Robert (memory fading); putting my body into the full-lotus yoga position, then standing on my head and turning 360 degrees; many pathways and discoveries, like the board games 'Chutes & Ladders' and 'Clue;' a lot of clocks at the wrong time - one stuck at 4:35 with a second hand unsucessfully jerking to break free from the minute hand. That's a taste, and for me, it was a very good taste. Thank you Alex. See you again soon. As a fellow lover of large company in my domicile, I leave you with a law from the B-Squad rule book: "The best for the guest, but the most for the host." Looking forward to South Sea 22! Ahoy Matees!!

Well, if you think you've seen everything and been most everywhere time to step on your brakes and spend an evening at Gemini Manor. Have you ever been in a movie theatre and watched so many previews you forgot for a moment what movie you came to see? Or have you been on hold so long you forgot who you called and got caught up in the music? Well once you enter the Manor you no longer can tell your in a house, or a neighborhood or even Los Angeles for that matter, your so caught up in the ambiance, music and people. It's as if you Alice in Wonderland and if you get lost (which I keep seem to be doing every time I go) nothing looks quite the same. Sometimes it's nice to take some time out of the day and visit Wonderland. Just watch out for the Red Queen :) The Manor is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.

Good lord! Twenty years, and now you're a guru? I greatly enjoyed looking at your site, but am still trying to figure out how you did it. You connected your house with another one? Hmmm. Well, I must come out and take a look one day.
I was in San Francisco a couple of months ago, but haven't been back to LA in years -- eight, to be exact. Glad to see you're still enjoying life~

Lets see, where to start??? I have been frequenting Gemini for about 6 months. Thus far, it has been a sanctuary for myself and many of my friends. We go to Gemini because it allows us to let go of reality for however long Alex will let us stay (which is usually well into the morning). The people i have met have been above all things, interesting and very kind to me. The atmosphere adds to the feeling of escape from reality and i have experienced many things and learned not only about myself but about the people I have interacted with. If you get a chance to visit The Manor, please do you wont regret it!

HI....I ONLY WENT TO THIS HOUSE OPNCE BUT IT WAS ONE OF THE FEW PLACES SOCIALLY IN LOS ANGELES WHERE I FEEL NONE( OR VERY LITTLE PRETENSION).... FOR ME THIS IS A HUGE PLUS.
I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE AT THIS PLACE..... THE PEOPLE ARE COOL... IT HAS A "ARTSY" VIBE AND NOT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY VIBE THAT SEEMS TO REPELL ME. BEING AN LA NATIVE I UNDERSTAND THE EXTREME IMPORTNACE OF HAVING ALTERNATIVE PLACES TO HANG.FOR THOSE OF US THAT JUST DONT FIT THE TYPICAL MOLDS THAT RENMAIN. SO IF YOURE NOT A ONE DIMENSIONAL KIND OF PERSON.. HAVE ECCCLECTIC TASTES ... FOR REAL NOT JUST IN THE OVER USE OF THAT WORD......... YOU WILL LIKE THE VIBE AT GEMINI. BORED OF VALLETT PARKING YOURE CAR OR SITTING IN SOME CLUB NEXT TO A POSER BARBIE OR KEN DOLL WITH HEADSHOTS?? COME TO GEMINI MANOR..IF SOMEONE IS PASSING OUT HEADSHOTS HERE THEY WILL BE AT LEAST COOLER THAN THE TYPICAL PERSON CRUSING AROUND THE CLUB SCENE IN LA.....ANOTHER REFRESHING THING. NO ONE I TALKED TO TOLD ME THEY HAD SUCH AND SUCH RECORD DEAL OR WERE GOING TO BE THE NEXT STEVEN SPIELBERG........DOWN TO EARTH KINDA HIPPIE VIBE HERE..

I've been going to Gemini Manor on and off for over ten years. It's a unique place, with unique people -- and I realized recently that it's been responsible for introducing me to most of the people that now make up my social life. It's a "home" in more ways than one!

Gemini Manor is so many things to so many people. It's really worth visiting once just to see it - it's a gas if you like the unusual! But to get the full benefit of what the Manor has to offer, come back a few more times, stay til the late hours, and get to know some of the people that come regularly to make music, meet new people, or just sit and watch. It's easy. It's fun. It's - well, the Gemini Manor!

GM has an ambience that encourages truth, generosity, and authenticity. It allows one to focus not on the hot political issues of the day, but the real engines of human awareness and human progress. It's a place where one can let go, suspended in the arms of a loving community up there on that roof, enchanted by the blazing stars.

When I first started having parties at Gemini Manor in 1977, I quickly
realized that something special was happening. The unusual decor and
ambience of The Manor allowed people to escape who they were in the outside
world. They could have uninhibited fun, let down their guard and say or be
anyone. This "warm fuzzy" feeling also opened people up to making many
different connections: personal, romantic or business. I personally have
experienced many such wonderful connections. I hope this Manor tradition
continues for a very long time!
