Club Reports: Ember, Dragon Room, Bliss Ultra Lounge, The Beacham

Sorry for the picture quality in this article but my new camera slipped into a weird mode that I could not recover from without the owner's manual. But on with the show! First stop Ember which is an inside restaurant and an outdoor courtyard. Popular place where you might spot an Orlando Magic player or two.

In this kind of weather the courtyard is where it's at as happy hour merges into later hours.  DJ Adam Wells had the outside duty mixing Top 40 and House/Dance.

Music during my visit include some Classic Dance songs such as Snap!'s Rhythm Is A Dancer to the more recent Bounce by DJ Calvin Harris.

And the city skyline towers over the location.

First visit to Dragon Room in nearly two years!

DJ Freefall was on the boards spinning mostly Top 40/Dance although he says it becomes a lot more Hip Hop as it gets later.  Freefall is the Thursday/Friday night resident DJ at Vintage Lounge.

But there didn't seem to be any objections to his House set as people were dancing in a number of different places!

But for the best Saturday night Dance music downtown you have to go to Bliss Ultra Lounge!

DJ Mickey Bono (Beat Thrillerz, K5,, is the Saturday night resident DJ playing 100% House and Dance.

During my visit the club went from busy..... packed!

With dancing on the main floor and up in the VIP area.

Alas Saturday nights are no longer AAHZ nights at The Beacham. :-(

But DJ Richie Rich (House of Blues) packs them in nonetheless!

The music is mostly Rhythmic Contemporary including Rap, Hip Hop and some Top 40/Dance too.

Saturdays are sponsored by Daytona/Orlando radio station 102JAMZ (WJHM) and a good time was had by all!
