The dance music hits will once again be pumping inside the sparkling red interior of Cherry Lounge & Pit, as the Tempe nightclub is scheduled to re-open tonight after enduring a two-week closure.
The Mill Avenue danceteria, which closed down temporarily on June 23, will once again be open for business with the usual divas and dudes on the dance floor, as well a full lineup of event scheduled for the rest of the week and onto the weekend.
For instance, the duo of DJ Slippe and DJ Breez will be in the mix later tonight during a special 18-and over Hot Summer Nights Lingerie Ball at the club, which will have reduced cover for those who show up wearing their sexiest unmentionables.
UK Thursdays will also make its return to Cherry Lounge tomorrow night when L.A. electro/dubstep artist Rusko will be the special headliner. A slew of residents and guest DJs will also perform, including HavocNdeeD, Josh Swissman, Ill-Legal?, Sub D., Non Compliance, Whiteboi, Estefex, & dLo. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased here.
Scandalesque will also present its "Shameless" event on Friday evening, offering its usually outrageous assortment of comedy, burlesque dancing, singing, and other Vaudevillian thrills. More info can be found here.
