Club Reports: The Dubliner, Don Jefe's, Vanity Nightclub, Independent Bar, Sound Bar

Well there once was a popular downtown dance club called Antigua that closed and was renovated to become Don Jefe's Tequila Parlour.  Now the latter has been renovated again and split into two, with half of it becoming The Dubliner Irish Social House and the other half remaining Don Jefe's.
In the booth making it happen is DJ John Campisano (The Groove, 180 Grey Goose Lounge, Lattitudes, Red Coconut Club) alternating between Irish, Downtempo and Top 40.
While over in Don Jefe's we found DJ Lyvwyr (Paradiso 37) playing Hip Hop. Haven't run into him since I saw him playing out on beautiful Pleasure Island!
The place has been renovated again and has numerous spots to chill.  Vestiges of old Antigua have been removed.  Few people in the place though but it was kind of early.
Vanity is one of my new favorites in Orlando.  Between the upscale decor and great music, it's an excellent place to spend the evening!
Arrived to find DJ Leony (Sirius/XM BPM, Red Coconut Club, Latin Quarter, RadioDanz) in the booth playing House/Dance!
Taking turns with DJ Freefall (Rok Room, Vintage Lounge) amid the lighting and smoke effects!
Like the rest of downtown last night, not overly crowded but hardly empty either.
With next weekend a mid-month payday weekend for many, this floor will be packed!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
Spotted by the bar: Orlando power-broker CJ.
Heading over to long-time favorite club Independent Bar!
DJ Dem Rok (Thee Grotto) was in the booth with Lighting Tech Ernie!
The dance floor here too was not packed like it is a lot of the time.
Dancing to early to mid-80's Old Wave.
Spotted by the bar: Sandra, CJ & Ernie
Last stop of the night, another favorite of mine, Sound Bar.
In the booth, guest DJ Kleon Time (Stygma) at the rear and resident DJ Monsanto in the middle.
Small club with the big sound of Deep House music!
And a good time was had by all!
