Club Reports: Atlantic Dance & The Groove



CLICK ON PHOTOS FOR MORE DETAIL
It's been awhile since we've reported on Atlantic Dance Hall out at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. When it comes to patrons this place is always feast or famine but last night around 10pm there was at least 150 people in here and the night was still young. DJ Pat was the jockey of the night, playing mostly Top 40 videos and some 70's/80's classics. Disney operates ADH for the benefit of the Swan & Dolphin hotels but there is absolutely no promotion of the place except perhaps in the hotels themselves which are within stumbling distance. Open nightly except Sunday/Monday.



Meanwhile over at CityWalk the Latin Quarter was surprisingly uncrowded last night, perhaps being impacted by the new Cuba Libre club over at Pointe Orlando. Such was not the case at The Groove which was pretty packed. The newer DJ King was on duty playing the standard Groove video dance mix of Top 40 & 80's Classics. The stunning bartendress Katie was pouring upstairs while the confetti was pouring downstairs. There was about a half dozen Mannequins people in the club on this beautiful but sticky Orlando evening.

Don't forget that Thursday night is 80's Night at The Groove!

Oh, I'm very well aware that the Groove recognizes that era and attend it regularly! Still looking for an 8TRAX resurrection!

ADH is closed Sunday AND Monday unless you talked to someone who states that has changed

I thought the dance hall was closed Mondays too.
It's a nice club. If they just add a little more dance music, I think it would draw more people especially locals.

I never understood the music format in The Groove. Every time I've been in there, it reminds me of the old days of Buckhead back in Atlanta where we had to play almost nothing but "familiars" because the crowd couldn't handle the real house music.

DJ Smooth, welcome back to the Save PI blog!

Readers, Orlando based DJ Smooth is formerly of XM Satellite Radio and now has a Friday evening (10pm ET) show on the RadioDanz website. For those of us in O-Town, Smooth just recently began a weekly House session at Trotter's Sports Bar in MetroWest every Saturday night. I will be reporting on it during September.

In the meanwhile, click on the link to his website where you can listen to his most recent radio and club sets. They're awesome!
