Voyage Has Closed

The downtown nightclub Voyage has closed. And I say good riddance! You see, two years ago after the PI club closures were announced, everyone kept asking me where I was going to go once Mannequins closed. And initially I did not know. But I told everyone that I'd research it. The creation of this Blog partly came out of that search.
I spent one of those few remaining Saturday nights club hopping around downtown Orlando. As I visited each venue, I'd explain what I was doing to the doorman or club manager and without hesitation was allowed entry without having to pay the cover charge. I spoke to the DJ's and learned the music formats for Friday and Saturday nights. Took notes. Everywhere except Voyage. They were the only club who refused to let me in without paying. So I never went back. I can only recall even mentioning them here on the Blog maybe once. And so they finally closed. As I said, good riddance. (In previous lives, the club was known as Blue Room and Red Velvet.)
