The cathedral-like interior of Sanctum is a vibrant and color-filled milieu. There's a nonstop glow of red, blue, and green within the Gothic-style dancing and drinking parlor, thanks to the high-tech spotlights and lasers beaming every which way.

It's almost as colorful as the club's unique array of patrons, particularly the lively bunch that gathered inside Sanctum on Saturday, August 19, for the latest edition of Doom Disco.
