Say adios to Club Rain, as the lascivious Latin dance den located in south Scottsdale has been replaced with an entirely new joint.
Club Trinity now occupies the Papago Plaza space that formerly housed Rain and will focus more on dishing out hip-hop and Top 40 tracks instead of cumbias and reggaeton.
The cats from VIP Enterprises have been running a relatively well-attended Saturday night shindig at the club since the change occurred late last month, and have booked Young Money for an appearance this weekend.
This isn't the first time the property (which is situated at McDowell and Scottsdale roads) has functioned as a hip-hop haven, as the location served as a rather infamous nightspot called CBNC back before it became Club Rain in 2007.
CBNC was an a major hot spot that accrued a serious reputation as a place to spot such celebs as 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Beyoncé, and Britney Spears, as well as local sports icons like former Phoenix Suns star Amare Stoudemire.
