Openings Galore and an Anniversary
Tonight, the club with the best name in a long ass minute opens. Frankie Sharp, my guitar hero opens Lovegun, with all the unusual suspects attached. It is calling itself a “Gay Club” and it is located at 617 Grand Street, Brooklyn. Music will be provided by MIKE Q, Juliana Huxtable, DICAP (Anthony DiCapua) and Joey LaBeija. Of course there will be a performance by La’fem Ladosha and Xander will be at the door. The party is called GIRLs and has people gawking. Some girls named are Thorgy Thor ,Milk Queen. Remy Moore, Bob Thedrag Queen. Pusse Couture, Kia Labeija, #KRIZZ, Macy Rodman and many more—you get the idea. Last night the people at Metropolitan, that unstably great Williamsburg Gay staple, were predicting greatness for Lovegun but little impact on the neighborhood-y Metropolitan. Everyone is going to Lovegun tonight.
Space, which is grand opening tonight has previewed with a Jeremy Scott Fashion Week party that brought out Madonna herself, the Paper Magazine 30th Anniversary soiree and DJs that include Diplo and Scrillex…hard acts to follow. Space seems to be making the right moves in positioning itself as the mega club that caters to the higher end Euro crowds, as opposed to the bridge and tunnel EDM heads filling most of Manhattan and Brooklyn dance spots. High society promoters like Derek and Daniel Koch are there to set a tone. I asked them for a sound byte and they offered:
“From the Middle Eastern melting pot in Dubai, to the shores of Cannes and back to New York City, my brother and I have been on a worldwide tour over the past six months. Bringing our unique flair to each city, our newest venture, DMK Entertainment Group, has touched each metropolis in its own unique way. Focusing on our classic style of the highest hospitality possible and the best events one can find, we couldn’t have been any happier to have paired with Ibiza United as the doors finally open at Space Ibiza NY.”
My buddy Nur Khan celebrated 3 years of Electric Room with a week of performances including Gary Clark Jr., Kaneholler and Walking Shapes and DJ Ethan Kyle of Crystal Castles. Last nights official 3 Year party included Adriana Lima, Damien Hirst, Jeremy Piven, Nicole Trunfio, Chloe Norgaard, Harry Brant, Baron Hilton, Todd Eberle, Ethan Kath (Crystal Castles), Harif Guzman, Royston Langdon, Sante D’Orazio, Simon Le Bon (Duran Duran), Irina Lăzăreanu, Danny Masterson, Chelsea Tyler, and Mia Tyler.
