Club Reports: 180 Grey Goose Lounge, Bliss Ultra Lounge

Attended the Orlando Magic basketball game last night against the Milwaukee Bucks, so there was no excuse not to check out 180 Grey Goose Lounge located atop Amway Center180 is the only club in town where you can be dancing outside while an NBA basketball game is taking place elsewhere in the same building!
DJ John Campisano was positioned inside the club last night because of the threat of drizzle.  But since he was inside, he did not get to see all the people dancing to his awesome House/Top 40/Dance mix behind him out on the open-air mezzanine.
The patio became packed the minute the game ended which is also when the club opens to people not attending events.  But you best stay away this coming week as President Obama apparently has a private event here one night this coming week and various private parties associated with next weekend's NBA All-Star Game have other nights booked-up!
The "180" in the name refers to the 180-degree view of the city you get from the outdoor patio!
Bliss Ultra Lounge downtown on a Friday night.  Back in the day when Church Street Station was the place in Orlando to party, this was a disco called Phineas Phoggs Balloon Works!  Of course everyone knows the Mouse did not like all that money leaving their property every night so they built a place called Pleasure Island to compete with it. When Universal subsequently built CityWalk, the combo was just too much for CSS and nearly all of it shut down!
Some Magic basketball fans in the house after the game!
DJ Ish (Rix Lounge, Boss) on the boards putting out an amazing House/Dance/Top 40 set!
The dance floor went from zero to crowded....... jammed within just a few minutes!  More awesome music at Bliss on Saturday nights with DJ Mickey Bono (Beat Thrillerz, K5, Radio Danz, Florida Beat Radio)! Check it out!
