Club Reports: Rocco's Tacos, Vixen Bar, Suite B Lounge, Vanity Nightclub, Club Epic

Oh what a night!  Began my Friday evening at Rocco's Tacos on Sand Lake Road, the restaurant that turns into a club of sorts later at night!
Fort Lauderdale-based DJ JR was in the booth playing Top 40 and a lot of Oldies.  He said he would migrate to more of a House mix as it got later.
Yes, people do dance in here!  We can expect similar things in Downtown Disney as the many new restaurants on the Island bring-in late night DJ music!
Last summer DJ KenE of Windsor (CDN), pictured here with his wife Nicole, gave me a tour of 8 clubs in his hometown of Windsor, Ontario.  Article here.  Last night it was time to reciprocate during their visit to Orlando!
Too many clubs, so little time.  But after Rocco's the next stop was Vixen Bar.
DJ Gerry Labarge was in the booth spinning Deep House!
Small handful on the floor enjoying the dance mixes!
While favorite bartendress Lindsey took care of the drink mixes!
Any tour of Orlando dance clubs must include a stop at Suite B Lounge!
The music was a mix of Tech House and Deep House.
But unlike so many other visits here, the place was sadly empty.
So we needed to be moving on and moving on we did.  Vanity Nightclub.
Arrived to find DJ Markis blowing the place up with House/Deep House!
Dance floor and club was wall-to-wall!
Here to see headliner DJ Miss Jennifer (USA) who took over at 12:30am!
Resident DJ at Pacha in New York City, she continued with pure, unadulterated House music!
Dance floor got even more packed!
Although some stayed at the bar to check their Facebook.  Directly below in Vyce another big name, DJ Robbie Rivera (USA), was playing too!
Two legends!  Rick Rodriguez is the brainchild of Trust night at Vanity that is bringing in top DJ talent such as DJ Derrick May on March 13th.  He was the man behind Destiny Nightclub back in the late-00's.  He's spotted here backstage with DJ Fusion aka Bob Man!
First time ever visit to Orlando for Miss Jennifer!
Final stop of the night was Club Epic on Pine Street, located where Syn Nightclub operated a couple years ago.
DJ Baby Anne (USA) on the decks in the corner booth!
Place was packed!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!  You can never go wrong with Breakbeats!
Not positive but I believe this was Baby Anne's first Orlando appearance since she played at CityWalk's "techno night" in September, 2013.
DJ KenE still hanging in there at this wee hour!
NLP was in the house!
ill DJ ChrisB (USA) closing it down!
NLP MC Marybeth looking quite fine in all-black!
And a good time was had by all!
