Club Report: Bliss Ultra Lounge
Oh my gosh, if any club in Orlando is going to make me forget Mannequins, this is the one. Saturday night is 100% House/Dance featuring DJ Mickey Bono of K5 and Beat Thrillerz. The club was thoroughly jammed including the dance floor and while the floor does not revolve, drink enough and it will seem to spin! The music was absolutely awesome. If we can't have a formal Mannequins reunion maybe we can all just meet here one Saturday night informally. Mannequins fans will not be dissapointed. Typical cover is $5. You can also hear DJ Mickey Bono spin on Wednesday nights at Circa 1926 in Winter Park and on the internet at www.radiodanz.com
Club Report: Antigua
Just over the tracks from Bliss (watch out for that 10:15pm CSX Fast-Freight!) is Antigua. This place also gets packed beyond belief on Saturday nights. Prepare to be yanked onto the dance floor, groped, fondled and grinded upon. And that's if you're a guy....the girls are crazy in here. Free drinks for ladies and 2 for 1 for guys probably has something to do with it. The music: close to 100% mashups of Top 40, 70's, 80's, Dance, everything! Some songs last 15 seconds and some get played longer by DJ Nova. Some of the mashups are "store bought"; I've heard the exact same arrangements at The Groove. Typical cover was $5 but $10 was being charged last night so I don't know if that's a permanent increase or not.
