Mighty SF Closed – Reopening as Great Northern

After purchasing Utah Street nightclub Mighty in May and closing its doors at the end of July, the owners of Monarch are reopening the warehouse nightclub tomorrow night, with a whole new name, look and feel.

In a video sent to Monarch’s email subscribers today, the ownership team offered a sneak peek inside the new Utah Street dance club, which has been renamed The Great Northern.

Like Mighty, the new venue will offer live shows, DJs and performances. Its new concept is “future deco,” weaving technology and modern aesthetics into an “old theater” feel.

Key features include a stained-glass window behind the spacious bar that uses LED panels to mimic a real window, a custom sound system, more space to dance, and cozy nooks throughout.

 

Time Nightclub Grand Opening in the OC this Weekend

Nightlife in Orange County is about to experience a major overhaul. A much needed one at that. In the early 2000s there weren’t many choices for those that wanted to stay out dancing and drinking past 10 p.m. You could wait in line at Dennis Rodman’s club on PCH, Josh Slocum’s, drive to Anaheim and mix it up with the over 18 crowd at the Boogie, or wait in line to stand four deep at the bar at The Yard House and dance when nobody was looking.

That all changed 13 years ago when Sutra opened at “Triangle Square.” Orange County finally had a place to party. A place to see Lil’ Jon growl into the mic or LMFAO spray champagne, to watch Ludacris promote his liquor and Paul Oakenfold whip the crowd into a dancing mob. TIME Nightclub Orange County

Sutra, once a restaurant, had to be turned into a nightclub. It was never a perfect fit, but Identity Management group was able to make it successful for over a decade. This past weekend Sutra closed its doors.

Now rebranded and completely made over, The Triangle has attracted restaurants like La Vida Cantina, Tavern+Bowl and H20 Sushi to fill the shopping center once filled with Virgin Records and NikeTown.

Identity Management group is set to open their new venture TIME Nightclub this Thursday to the beats of German DJ Icon Markus Schulz.

You enter TIME on the street level of the shopping center through doors near the current valet and are greeted by large LED walls that tower overhead and wrap around to the ceiling. The first thing you notice upon entering the main area is how cavernous and open the giant space under the dome of the former NikeTown feels. It is massive.

We wanted to bring an amazing experience to Southern California, a true nightclub, that is exciting from the second you walk through the doors,” Steven says. “The canvas of the space helped inspire our design team to create the unique layout. We are really striving to bring a new era of nightlife to Southern California and we believe we have accomplished that.”

They definitely did. The palate is bold. Floor-to-ceiling kelly green painted wood logs mark the entrance to the ladies room, ten times oversized zebra patterns line the back wall, and a rose gold tinted mirror backs the bar. The club also boasts a lounge within the Ladies room that has access to the bar. No more standing in line for drinks on “Girls Nights Out.” TIME Nightclub Orange County

Club-goers will be astonished by the magnitude of lighting displays and art pieces that breathe life into Time Nightclub. It not only boasts a state-of-the-art Funktion One sound system, but a fully immersive lighting experience, designed by Steve Lieberman from SJ Lighting, that will really add that “wow” factor of this spot. “Without giving away too much, the special effects will allow guests to feel like they are in the middle of the party from any point within the club,” Steven says.

The football stadium size LED screen (20’x30′) making up the DJ wall and the over dance floor programmable chandelier with over 5,000 programmable orbs are further evidence of the “wow” response TIME will surely induce.

Orange County was in need of a fun injection and it’s about TIME this club opened. See you this Thursday.

New Nightclub Confession Opens in Hollywood

Chris Breed (Cabana Club, Maui & Sons) is back in Hollywood, this time at the swanky new Confession, which officially opens on June 5 inside the Pig ‘N Whistle space behind the Egyptian theater.

Breed’s Sunset Entertainment Group takes over the historic interior, adding a few clubbier elements like a confession booth (actually a Twitter-ready photo booth), state-of-the-art sound system, and updated drink program by Frederic Vial. By day, the place remains Pig ‘N Whistle, but starting from 9 p.m. on Monday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, transforms to Confession.

With a cathedral-like interior of hand-carved woodwork, the juxtaposition between late night revelry and the place’s “holier” elements probably won’t be ironic to anyone hanging out at the tables (don’t worry, no religious icons anywhere). Want to skip the velvet rope? Hit the website for more information.

XIV Summer Sessions is Back at Boardwalk

Summer’s arrived – which means the return of day drinking, sun dresses, tank tops, and yacht parties.

Don’t own a yacht? SBE has you covered with their new night/dayclub concept – Boardwalk.

Located at the old Colony at Cahuenga and Hollywood, SBE’s roofless new party spot is primed for some good old Sunday debauchery that’s got all the awesomeness of a boat party without the seasickness. Summer’s here and XIV Summer Sessions is back in full swing.

Imagine you’re standing on the blond-wood deck of a yacht gone full Jordan Belfort. Let’s see, there’s thundering beats from big-name DJs in a dinghy draped with bikini-wrapped dancers. Confetti dumping. Bottle service delivered on wooden lifeboats. Champagne spraying. Anchors, life preservers and… assorted Hollywood-issued flotation devices.

So when you need to extend a weekend beyond normal limits, you’ll head here with friends and enter XIV Yacht Club—that’s what they’re calling their Sunday party, and each week the vibe will change to invoke a different “port,” like Maui or Saint-Tropez. For Memorial Day, it’s Camp Pendleton.

Saturday nights will be Asian night, put on by Go Productions LA. Friday nights TBA.

Foxtail Pool Club Announces Grand Opening Dates

The newest pool party in Las Vegas splashes down on March 13.

Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Las Vegas brings a lineup of electronic dance music heavyweights, including Swedish DJ Steve Angello, formerly of Swedish House Mafia, house music deejay Erick Morillo of “Fun” by Da Mob fame and English trance music specialist Gareth Emery.

Technically, Foxtail is the resort’s pool during the week and transforms into a club Fridays through Sundays. SLS opened right before Labor Day weekend, missing out on the warm weather party season.

The retro-inspired space takes up 43,000 square feet with a pool bar anchoring it. Hang out in one of the 25 cabanas, two VIP cabanas, 30 daybeds or “floating” lily pads while catching rays.

Stick around until night when the wall of the neighboring parking garage and hotel tower turns into a canvas for a 3D mapping show.

While the pool party starts the waves in March, the official grand opening comes on Friday, April 24, with Rebecca & Fiona, the Swedish duo whose singles include “Luminary Ones” and “Bullets.” Morillo kicks off the Sunday party on April 26.

Get on the guestlist or book bottle service at Foxtail Pool Club via the Discotech Mobile App.

Omnia San Diego Plans Grand Opening

Dance music fans near San Diego’s Gaslamp District have a new megaclub to enjoy.

Hakkasan Group is bringing their years of nightlife experience to San Diego, re-branding and re-imagining Stingaree into the newly minted Omnia club brand. The launch of the San Diego arm of Hakkasan Group’s nightlife empire mirrors its sister club in Las Vegas’s top tier lineup announcement.

The club itself hopes to raise the bar for San Diego nightlife. President of Hakkasan Group, Nick McCabe described Omnia San Diego as an “unparalleled destination in the Gaslamp Quarter with unique, state-of-the-art design and refined luxury. We’re looking to make a lasting impression by combining what we believe is the best nightclub real estate in San Diego, with a taste of what made us so successful in Las Vegas.”

Omnia San Diego is currently planning it’s grand opening for Spring 2015.

Project LA Unveiled Tonight

The first Gensler-designed nightclub in the world is now live right here in Hollywood. Welcome Project LA, which launches tonight in the legendary Roxbury space along Hollywood Blvd huddled in between Hemingway’s and Beso. A collaboration between Boulevard Nightlife Group and Project London, it features an immersive experience with angular lines, next-level lazer lights over a modest dance floor, and a smattering of tables with clear views of the space.

It feels edgy and futuristic because that’s the point — no exposed incandescents or weathered wood in sight. An illuminated DJ booth looks over the dance floor while a mesmerizing triangle light show done by V Squared Labs hangs low above revelers. Check out this cocktail menu, though prices reflect UK pounds. One wonders, which celebrity will be the first one to order the F*** Me I’m Famous? (A cinnamon fireball served with pop rocks candy).

For something decided non vodka-soda like, try the Don Julio Paloma, a not-so-subtle promotion of a known tequila brand, but shaken with lime and grapefruit for a simple sipper. For nightly DJ schedules download the Discotech app or check on Project LA’s website.
