Club Report: Roxy
The first Thursday of every month is now "I Love House Music" night at Roxy featuring DJ Mickey Bono. Last night was the very first such night and from the size of the crowd, I would call it a great success. As you can see, it was packed. I don't really know whether patrons came out expecting a techno night or whether they came out because they're regular Thursday night patrons anyway. Didn't matter because what they got was Dance music and they loved it! There was a lot of Dance versions of Top 40 songs and that kept everyone hopping and happy. For instance, back-to-back early songs included Dance versions of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance, Britney's 3 and Mickey Bono's own remix of I'm In Miami Bitch. During my visit there was zero Hip Hop and because of the song selections played, it wasn't missed! Very young crowd.
Cover charge is $5. The main club opens around 11pm but come at least 15 minutes earlier if you want to use the free parking in back. Drinks are free until midnight. The next House night is January 7th. Mickey Bono spins most Saturday nights at Bliss downtown.
