Party-Hopping Pit Stop

We liked the Scottsdale club life so much last week that we thought we might hit up a new hot spot, the Cherry Lounge & Pit in Tempe, on Friday, January 26. Mill Avenue was lively and teeming with drunkards when we trekked our way to the popular drinking destination. With a long line outside the door, twentysomethings were chomping at the pit (forgive us) to see the scene inside, which was literally red-hot — all the lamps provided rouge luminescence, and the heat was cranked up so the bikini-girl dancers wouldn't catch pneumonia.

The mixed crowd looked clean and casual, but despite the sweet spins of two DJs in separate rooms, there wasn't a lot of ass-shaking going on. Everyone was too busy chatting and checking each other out to really get down. Nonetheless, the darkened atmosphere and sexy decor of poster after poster showing lingerie-clad hotties made for a charged-up crowd that seemed to have a blast just boozing to the beats.
