Opening/Closing

Cream Stereo Lounge Closes for Renovation

Stereo HD Fridays isn't happening tonight at Cream Stereo Lounge in Scottsdale, nor is Ultimate Saturdays, Blush Thursdays, or any of the club's other theme nights. In fact, absolutely nothing's been happening at the club recently, as Cream is currently undergoing a complete makeover and renovation.

According to a few Scottsdale club promoters we spoke with, the Drinkwater Boulevard danceteria went dark in December for "a complete change of the décor." That includes ditching the all-white furnishings (and even its iconic bathtub in its VIP area) that Cream has sported since opening in late 2008.

Cream's Facebook page offers little in the way of details, save for a few posts mentioning its closure and that it "will be going through plastic surgery." Rumor has it that the club will become more of a high-end establishment boasting an even ritzier look than before.
