Bootsy Bellows Grand Reopening West Hollywood

The H.Wood Group’s throwback-style revamp gives the lounge a decidedly Palm Springs feel.

Throwback menus and vintage decors are all the rage across Los Angeles right now, and the redone Bootsy Bellows is certainly no exception. The longtime West Hollywood hotspot returns to life today, sporting a lush glassy and green interior for the all the club-goers in the Hollywood Hills.

Bootsy Bellows has been in operation, with a few updates and decor tweaks here and there, since 2012. It’s become a staple property for the busy H.Wood Group co-owners John Terzian and Brian Toll, as well as partner David Arquette. Even as the company continues to move further and further into hotels and restaurants, their original backbone remains in the nightlife space with places like Bootsy Bellows, Poppy, and the Peppermint Club.

The new Built, Inc.-designed bar and lounge comes in a rosy pink hue, with lots of plush banquette seating and light green accents, including lots of house plants inside. Chandeliers and a reflective main bar give the room a vintage Hollywood shimmer, while modern table bottle service draws in the current crowds.

Bootsy Bellows reopens tonight, keeping hours on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturdays.

Best EDM Clubs in London

When you think of London, several images come to mind. One one end, you picture royalty, class and maybe Manchester United. On the other end, you picture live music, Dr Martens walking down city streets, random musicians banging on tin drums in warehouses. THIS is the London that is magnetic to EDM fans.

Electronic music is nothing new in the UK. They’ve even been responsible for several subgenres in the scene, which is assurance that the nightlife caters to that. Many of the staple clubs in London’s dance music scene sprung up in the 1990s when electronic music was really beginning (or continuing) to boom. Whether you are a UK local, on a group backpacking trip from the States, studying abroad, or on a self-exploring trip, chances are to get the full experience you will want to hit up a club in London.

Fabric

It’s a guarantee that the music will be well-picked if the club brand is also a record label. That is the case for Fabric, Farringdon’s premium nightlife choice. The music sits between techno, dubstep, house and drum and bass- think Claude Vonstroke, Skrillex and Midland. Three rooms across 25,000 square feet means no loss of space to get your groove on.

However, particularly for those who go to clubs to be fully engulfed in the sound, there is Room One. Famous for it’s floors attached to bass transducers, Room One gives new meaning to feeling the bass by literally pumping low bass frequencies through your feet to fill your entire dancing body with the music.

See upcoming events, and book tables for Fabric on the Discotech app.

Ministry of Sound

Ministry of Sound is a tribute to the importance of audio in nightlife, an idea that is often forgotten in the modern age of “trendy clubs.” This Southwark club is a veteran in London’s entertainment scene, opening in 1991 by an owner that set out to put music first, lights second, and atmosphere third- a refreshing break from many clubs’ priorities today.

In 2016, Ministry of Sound had Dolby Laboratories install Dolby Atmos, their 64-speaker, 22-channel sound system that gives a new name to good sound. The system fills the club’s main room, most crowded on their Saturday night “club nights” which host acts from Marshmello to Zeds Dead. Friday nights are a favorite for Trance lovers eager to hear artists like Markus Shultz.

You can download the Discotech app to see upcoming events, and book tables for Ministry of Sound.

XOYO

This moody-chic Shoreditch classic, delivering musical variety London residents and vacayers enjoy, has 2 floors, resident DJs and all that good stuff. The lights and ambiance of XOYO are slightly reminiscent of a 70s club. This all goes flawlessly with their signature “XOYO Loves,” night during which they play more melodic tracks across the EDM board, but especially residing in the disco genre.

You can find XOYO’s floor plan and book bottle service on the Discotech app.

Egg London

Funny name, serious party. Egg London is open until 6 am, so instead of waking up in the wee morning hours hungover, you will still be enjoying the party. Egg is a trailblazer among clubs by offering “memberships” that guarantee discounted and fast track entry among several other benefits.

Even better than that is their “student membership,” a GENIUS option for collegiates who want to stay ahead of the curve and in the know when it comes to nightclubs among their peers. So while America’s college students are pounding Natty Lights at a dive bar, London’s are waltzing into upscale nightclubs with their +2 in stilettos and silk.

Three dance floors and a spread out outdoor terrace make the layout. As for the music, house and techno are the main flavors. Come on Fridays for the new DJ names ready to make their big break. Saturdays are more seasoned- bringing in international DJs and all their glorious consistency.

Sign up for the free Egg London guestlist or book a table for bottle service on Discotech app.

Corsica Studios

For a more low-maintenance yet mega-urban feel there is Corsica Studios. Between the relaxed dress code, reasonable drink prices, and brick walls allowing for even more dynamic sound, Corsica makes way for EDM fans who aren’t into other distractions.

The intimate southeast London club often brings in talent that isn’t fully on the mainstream radar yet. The genres go across the board- techno, house, electro, disco, and even hints of dubstep and drum and bass.

Introducing the $10,000 Ono Cocktail at XS Las Vegas

One of Las Vegas’s most iconic cocktails, the Ono at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub, is all about over-the-top luxury. The cocktail for two costs a staggering $10,000 and features champagne that goes for some $500 per bottle, plus custom-designed glassware. The star ingredient is a rare cognac that retails for over $2,000 per shot: Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl. Using the Black Pearl cognac as inspiration, XS devised a cocktail that would celebrate the cognac’s flavor and scarcity. The name of the drink was inspired by the Polynesian god Oro who, as legend has it, brought a black pearl to the princess of Bora Bora. XS GM Yannick Mugnier explains that the drink was designed with men and women in mind, so the Ono also comes with a set of cufflinks and a gold, diamond, and pearl necklace.

“The cocktail is not about making money,” Mugnier explains, “it’s about extravagance.” He says the cocktail has been a hit with “big winners” at the casino as well as customers looking for a special experience. So far about 25 have been sold since it was on the menu in 2009. The Ono isn’t only a drink, but a celebration within the club. Each order served generates quite a bit fanfare, with a procession of some 20 XS employees, a presentation of the bottle of Black Pearl, and sparklers. Mugnier says: “When you buy the cocktail, everybody knows you bought it.” Below, the elements of the Ono:

1. The Cognac
The inspiration ingredient for the Ono is also its star: Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl cognac. It’s a limited edition cognac — only 786 bottles were produced — and Mugnier describes it as the producer’s “most premium.” The Black Pearl is an extraordinarily smooth blend of 12 different eaux de vie — each aged between 40 and 100 years — and there are tasting notes of passion fruit, honeysuckle, ginger, and nutmeg. Mugnier says that the retail value of the bottle is $60,000 – $100,000, with a shot going for about $2,500. XS does not sell Black Pearl by the shot, and Mugnier only buys decanters two at a time. Each of the two cocktails gets half an ounce.

2. The Champagne
The champagne in the Ono is also a rare and pricey product, Charles Heidsieck 1981 Champagne Charlie. Cocktail buyers receive the whole bottle unopened upon ordering the cocktail, which calls for about four ounces of champagne per glass. Mugnier explains that the “Reserve Charlie” is still extremely bubbly, despite being an older vintage, and has dried fruit flavors. Mugnier estimates that a bottle would retail for about $500, and says they are difficult to come by because “every bottle is worth keeping.” When XS decided to use the product they worked with a distributor to purchase as many bottles in the US that they could find, and Mugnier says that even now the club purchases the champagne whenever they find it. Mugnier adds that champagne ties into the nightclub setting, and also gives smoothness to the recipe.

3. The Rose Nectar
Another high-end ingredient, the Sence Rose Nectar the XS adds to the Ono is a syrup made from Kazanlak roses harvested in a three-week period from central Bulgaria. The pink rose nectar adds floral flavor and scent to the drink. Mugnier explains that it’s quite a strong flavor, so the Ono only contains a quarter ounce to keep the drink balanced.

4. The Fruit
Along with the components above, the cocktail has half an ounce of fresh-squeezed orange juice and a quarter of an ounce of apricot puree. Mugnier says the orange juice recalls a Mimosa, adding both bitterness and sweetness to the drink. XS purchases its apricot puree because they find it difficult to keep the seasonal fruit at the bar. The apricot adds its distinct flavors along with an amber color to the drink.

5. The Assembly
Mugnier describes the Ono assembly process as “very ceremonial.” When a patron orders the Ono, there is a procession of some 20 servers and sparklers so “everybody knows you bought it.” A manager carries the cognac in its original box (because of the liquor’s expense, the club prefers managers to carry it). A waitress carries and presents the champagne, and the assembly begins. The guest is presented with a tray full of custom glassware including two gold-rimmed Baccarat champagne flutes for the cocktail. On the tray are additional gold-rimmed shot glasses, which have the pre-measured orange juice, rose nectar, and apricot nectar. These are mixed together, then the cognac is poured into its own custom shot glass. It’s added to the two flutes, which are then topped off with champagne.

At this time guests are also presented with two pieces of custom-designed jewelry: a set of sterling silver Mont Blanc cufflinks and an 18K gold necklace with a black pearl and a diamond. The cufflinks have stingray skin and gold layered with an XS logo. The necklace was designed by a Las Vegas jeweler and also features a gold XS logo. The stingray skin ties into the ocean theme of the Ono’s name, and the black pearl is honor of the cognac. Ordering the expensive cocktail is a full-blown experience, and Mugnier explains that it’s really best for “people who like attention.”

The Best Hip-Hop Clubs in San Francisco

There is something to be said about the Bay Area’s hip hop presence. Sure- it isn’t the ATL or Chicago. San Francisco might not have “hip hop soul” but it does know a thing or two about pleasing everyone. And in the words of Tupac- “California, knows how to party.” Hip-hop has a definite presence in SF. Here is a list of the hottest clubs in the city for the people who would take some solid lyrics and a beat over a synthesizer. So if you’re more of a twerker than a first bumper, read on. And for the go-to hip-hop nightspots in every major city, check out the Discotech app.

The Grand

Between Latino Fridays and Freestyle Saturdays, you are all set at The Grand. A large Vegas-inspired nightclub, The Grand takes the cake for the big and bold when it comes to hip-hop clubs in the city. It isn’t too far from AT&T Park and close enough to Uber quickly to one of the other SoMa hip-hop hotspots. Sign up for free guestlist or book tables at the Grand using the Discotech app!

Holy Cow

Holy Cow is a total retro Los Angeles feel club. Polished oaky wooden tables and thin industrial-feel rails perfect for holding on to while you drop it low characterize this Folsom street club’s renovation. Just a heads up- Holy Cow is said to be overpriced, but sometimes you can’t expect to put a price tag on a wild night out.

DNA Lounge

If the word “ratchet” makes your heart smile, welcome to the club (yes, pun intended). DNA Lounge boasts home to the wild, the risky, the unapologetic, and the gorgeous. Not only are you “allowed”, but “encouraged” at this neon, multifaceted, warehousey spot that even caters to the 18+ crowd (heads up if that’s not your jam). Best part about this SoMa award-winning night spot with multiple dance floors and bars- it’s open until 5 a.m. Book bottle service at DNA Lounge using the Discotech app!

Raven Bar

A club for the people who aren’t that into clubs and the perfect place to drag the friends you can barely ever convince to go out with you. No one can resist a DJ spinning the best throwback 90’s tracks, not just limited to hip-hop. Even the most uptight friend will be getting sweaty on the dancefloor after hearing a few TLC songs at this laid back spot.

The ROC

If being surrounded by families and tourists on the Alcatraz tour just won’t cut it (we don’t blame you), head over to The ROC. This Alcatraz-themed bar and club brings the naughty to Fisherman’s Wharf. Expect a line out of the door on their most popular event, The ROC Fridays, drawing in tourists and locals alike who want to enjoy hip-hop music blaring from their state-of-the-art sound system. Browse upcoming events on the Discotech app! 

Origin SF

You may not have known, but the owners of The Grand have brought another gift to San Francisco’s hip-hop scene, and it’s name is Origin. If you love the aesthetic of a stylish lounge and you don’t want to go all the way to SoMa for a nightlife experience, this Western Addition/ Fillmore venue is spot on. The decor is trendy, much like the boutique hotels of SF, which could be why they often refer to Origin as a “boutique nightclub.” They host fun talent and bump hip-hop, top 40 and EDM. RSVP to get on the guest list or book bottle service for T-Pain using the Discotech app!

Empire Room

You’ll know your close to the Empire Room when you start seeing ladies and fellas dressed to the nines in Vegas-attire in the middle of Civic Center (you don’t typically see this in the area otherwise). The Empire Room brings the experience most crave when they go clubbing- big room equipped with chandeliers and lights, parties and events every weekend, and an emphasis on the VIP experience.

Introducing the Apex Social Club at the Palms Las Vegas

“Why not have a few drinks on top of the world?” says Andy Masi of Clique Hospitality. His new Apex Social Club on the 55th floor of the Palms lets partiers do just that in a 4,500-square-foot boutique nightclub setting.

But before revelers even step foot in the nightclub with its views of the Las Vegas Strip from the west, they have to get up there, entering a corridor of black and midnight blue wall coverings before encountering an oversized custom metal screen and two exclusive elevators that head to Apex, designed by Alessandro Munge. The open-air social club features a 360-degree view of Las Vegas from the outdoor patio and terrace. A retractable glass floor-to-ceiling partition separates the club from the open sky.

The space features four pieces of art by Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin dubbed Pyschogeographies. The nearly 3,000-pound humanoid sculptures feature a collage cut from magazines and books, laid down on glass, and fused together with resin to create 3D paintings. All are part of a larger collection of 120 sculptures that are typically displayed like that of the ancient Terracotta Soldiers.

Inside, the bar features bronze metal trim, midnight blue stone, and ombre glass. Aside from the astounding views, visitors can order VIP bottle service, all while looking down on the city.

Planning an Epic Bachelor / Stag Party in Las Vegas

Marriage isn’t for the faint of heart, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worthwhile. Sin City is most definitely not for the faint of heart, but it too is worth the adventure. Great- a match made in heaven! Who cares if Vegas is the cliche Bachelor / Stag Party destination. It has earned that title for a reason. It’s time to send your best bud off to his next adventure into an unknown world of commitment and love. But first- it’s time to celebrate.. on a major scale.

The thing about Vegas you should acknowledge before planning the wildest weekend of your life is that it is impossible to be disappointed if you go in knowing what to expect. Expect to spend the equivalent to one month of rent (or more). Expect to leave feeling like every ounce of energy has been drained from your sorry, hungover soul. Expect hoping that this weekend’s escapades will never be brought up in front of anyone respectful. And of course, expect one helluva time.

Now let’s get to the details.

Bachelor Party Pre-planning

A solid group of 6-8 people is perfect. That way, everyone can book rooms in pairs on their own. Also, this is a good size group to split bottle service tables with because too little people would be WAY more expensive. Pick a region of the strip and make sure everyone coordinates to stay in a hotel in that area- if not in the same hotel. It’s best if everyone books rooms in the same hotel, for obvious reasons.

Try to plan for the bachelor weekend to be during a hot, eventful time that is not a holiday. Create a group text to figure all the details out and have the most well-connected friends reach out to Las Vegas promoters to lock down prices for tables weeks before. Or, to make the process easier, go on the Discotech app and search bottle service. The group text will also become a forum for discussing the debauchery all the guys are looking forward to!

As the weekend approaches, it’s time to start hitting the gym. No shame in working on a tan too! Remember, this is Vegas!

The Game Plan

We’ve created a guide game plan that seems like the perfect way to spend the weekend giving your pal a farewell to the single, wild, and free life.

Friday

  • Late afternoon: Arrive and check in to the hotel, grab a few drinks and get situated
  • Night: Group dinner at a nice steakhouse
  • Late night: Walk the strip and bar hop or hangout in the hotel bar. Hit up the casino if you have self-control. Remember you need that money the fund the next two days! This is the “calm before the storm” night.

Saturday

  • Daytime: POOL PARTY!! Book a cabana or daybed for bottle service at a poppin’ pool party. Find the hottest event that weekend and go see a favorite DJ. For a Saturday day party, Wet Republic or Encore Beach Club are ALWAYS a good idea. Between the killer lineups and badass surroundings, these pools are a go-to for parties all Summer long. If you’re looking for a hip hop spot, we recommend Daylight or Rehab
  • If you’re not up for the day drinking, there are a plethora of other bachelor friendly activities in Vegas. 
    • Fly a fighter Jet – If you’ve ever harbored a Top Gun fantasy, well, grab your aviators, Maverick. Sky Combat Ace is the closest most of us will ever come to feeling the rush of a fighter pilot dancing through the skies. Book the Top Gun package, then get behind the controls and, with the aid of an instructor, undertake aerobatic maneuvers like torque rolls, tail spins and the hammerhead stall (that’s the one where the plane points up, stalls and drops backwards toward the earth). But don’t stop there: Sky Combat also offers air combat experiences, where you can ride along or pilot during simulated aerial dogfights and low level bombing runs.
    • Catch some Hockey – After years of aspiring to major league status, Las Vegas has finally joined the club this year with NHL expansion team Vegas Golden Knights. For those who clucked over how a hockey squad would draw with all the other entertainment options in close proximity, the answer is now apparent: really damn well. Seeing a Golden Knights game at the T-Mobile Arena isn’t just another hour of skating and sticking. It’s hockey a la Las Vegas, complete with celebs on the Jumbotron, “Viva Las Vegas” and a little extra glitz thrown in the mix. And when the puck stops spinning, you’re still on the Strip. Which might make a Golden Knights match the best pregame in town.
    • Catch a Show – Cirque du Soleil’s enchanting spectacles have long been the dominant entertainment force on the Strip, but they’ve helped give birth to something a bit more… naughty. Absinthe is one part circus, one part pelvic-thrusting comedy show, performed inside an intimate spiegeltent, where the acrobats are often teetering above your head. The ring-leader Gazillionaire’s explicit jokes set the tone, but the performers steal the show with killer dance moves, high-wire daring and other acts that are equal parts astounding, arousing and just plain strange. You’ll laugh, you’ll gasp, you’ll uncontrollably blush. This ain’t your mama’s Vegas show.
    • Race some Exotic Cars – At the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, home of several NASCAR races each year, you can spend the day behind the wheel of vehicles straight out of a Hollywood action flick: Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens and Porsches, all gassed up and ready to go. Book a session with Dream Racing, who will put you in a simulator before you saddle up and buckle your safety belt. Then hit the track and hold on tight. With an instructor riding shotgun, you’ll satisfy your adrenaline addiction but never feel out of control.
    • Throw an Axe – Channel your inner lumberjack or Viking at Axe Monkeys, a new range dedicated to the old-school art of chucking low-tech weapons at wood. Reserve a lane or two, absorb a quick safety briefing, than grab an axe, step to the line and throw. Not only is pitching an axe a pretty good rush, but the learning curve is steep, so you’ll be nailing your attempts in no time. When you’re ready to take it to the next level, upgrade to ninja stars, throwing knives or even metal player cards. You’re just one martini and a good suit away from 007 status.
    • Shoot some guns – Sure, you crush at Call of Duty, but have you ever actually held a sniper rifle in your hand and pulled the trigger? You can at Battlefield Vegas, where they have AR-15s, AK-47s and Glock 17s available for your target practice pleasure. Book packages inspired by video games, Platoon or even World War II, and you’ll learn how to safely operate a wide variety of weaponry. Free Humvee pickups are available and, for a cool $2,500, you can even crush a car in an Abrams tank. Only in Las Vegas.
    • Play with Construction Equipment – Push, pull and rip your way to excitement on D5G Bulldozers and Excavators with DigThis Vegas. After a safety orientation and warm up, you take the controls while your Dig This instructor guides you through a series of three exercises including Building huge mounds, Pushing gigantic tires and finally Teeter-Tottering over a mega mound!
  • Nighttime: After the pool party, try to crash out for a bit. Squeezing in a one hour nap WILL save you. An insane Saturday afternoon MUST be followed by an epic Saturday night. Head to Omnia or Hakkasan and have a table booked by the stage. Revel in the bass and take in the perfectly overwhelming atmosphere until the wee hours of the morning.

  • Late night / After Hours: There’s something to be said about those that can make it to this time. If that includes your entire group- you guys are some party veterans! From the hours of 4-8 am, a strip club is definitely on the agenda. Head to Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club for 24/7 raunchy fun- the perfect way to close out the insanity of Saturday’s happenings. If you’re looking to continue dancing, we recommend Drais After Hours

Sunday

  • Late morning: When you begin to roll out of bed, or (let’s face it you haven’t slept) start noticing the hangover is creeping in- do not let it! It’s time to kill two birds with one stone. Nothing is more notorious for accomplishing that than… BRUNCH! Vegas brunch buffets combine the best of both worlds- upscale, flavorful dining and the theme of “overdoing it” that Vegas knows all too well. Have a couple mimosas and indulge in the exquisite array of all sorts of breakfast/ lunch items. You will feel ready to take on the world in no time!

  • Afternoon: This is the only intermission from partying for the weekend- but it will not be a break from adrenaline at all. The Las Vegas area has several daytime adventures and excursions visitors often forget about. We think the best way to get the blood flowing and the excitement building is to take the team to the desert for some ATV riding!
  • Night: Okay, okay- the anticipation is killing you. How are you going to close out the last night of this legendary send-off to your no longer single friend?! XS Night Swim! Magical is an understatement. Everything about this Summer-long Sunday event is flawless, from the top tier DJ acts to the top notch cocktail servers. 

Monday

  • You made it! Drink water and share pictures in your group text. TIme for a much needed recovery day at home before you are all back to work. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!

New Orleans Mardi Gras 2018 Nightlife Party Guide

Mardi Gras 2018 invades New Orleans AKA “The Big Easy” over the next seven days, and the party doesn’t stop from now until next Wednesday.   There’s no doubt that N’awlins is more of a restaurant, dive bar, and live music venue city, with the lion’s share of the year-round party action centered around the infamous French Quarter and Bourbon Street.   And during the Mardi Gras Festival itself, daytime revelry will be spotted everywhere amidst the city streets of New Orleans: parades, colorful outfits, marching bands, dance trains, bead throwing, and public processions winding their way through the main arteries of the city from dawn ’til dusk… and then there’s little to no break before the freaks (and drunks) come out at night.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans means costumes and exposed flesh everywhere!

That being said, there are also a handful of vastly underrated nightclub options in the Crescent City – opulently decorated showrooms blasting laser-tinted smoke and pulsating music, where the world’s best hip-hop and electronic music artists stop in to perform as their national tour dates wind through the American South.  To be sure, New Orleans is and always will be an ultra-casual city – think shorts, flip-flops, and t-shirts with rude sayings on them – but sometimes you just want to dress up, be more fancy, sip adult cocktails, and bob your head to a beat… amirite or amirite?   Well, we’ve found found the best spots for you to do just that, and our app will make it easy to party hard in The Big Easy.  To celebrate our in-app launch of New Orleans, we give you our top picks for the best nightlife events for visitors and locals to celebrate Mardi Gras:

Bacchus Parade Afterparty w/ DJ Keith Scott @ Masquerade

The local organizations responsible for throwing the world-famous parades on each day of the Mardi Gras festival are called Krewes.  Each Mardi Gras Parade Krewe has a unique history and theme.   Some have been around for decades, while others have been in existence for just a few years.  The Krewe of Bacchus, a local group formed in 1968, holds its parade on the Sunday before Mardi Gras Day, drawing crowds of several hundred thousands every year. With more than 1,000 members and 31 animated super-floats, the Krewe of Bacchus is revered as one of the most spectacular krewes in Carnival history; their large signature floats, Rendezvous supper dance with Las Vegas-type entertainment, and national celebrity monarchs are just a few of the tradition-breaking moves that set the Krewe of Bacchus apart from he rest.  Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, has been portrayed in past Mardi Gras parades by fun-loving celebrities such as Bob Hope, William Shatner, Dick Clark, Andy Garcia, and Will Ferrell.  After their parade wraps up, the afterparty shifts over to Masquerade, the Vegas-style nightclub inside Harrah’s Casino, for a wild dance party featuring DJ Keith Scott, a mainstay on Louisiana hip-hop radio stations.

Time: 10:00 PM – 2:00 AM

Venue: Masquerade (8 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Steve Aoki & Grandtheft @ Metropolitan

The Lundi Gras celebration is a grand New Orleans tradition embedded into the fabric of both locals’ and tourists’ traditions of honoring carnival season.  Lundi Gras represents a series of events that take place the Monday before Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. It has experienced a 20th century revival in New Orleans and is a must see daytime event for Mardi Gras revelers.  In the late afternoon, the Riverwalk Marketplace will host the annual Lundi Gras at Spanish Plaza with the arrival on the banks of the Mississippi River of Rex, King of Carnival; this free celebration includes fireworks and live musical entertainment.  As day turns into night, the Big Easy fireworks continue over at Metropolitan where Rex, King of Carnival yields his dominion to Aoki, King of Electronic Dance.   Brace yourself for a tough ticket but an epic time if you can squeeze your way in.

Time: 9:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Metropolitan (310 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70130)

10th Annual Lundifest f/ Waka Flocka Flame @ Republic NOLA

Southern hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame, with mega-hits like “No Hands” and “Hard In The Paint” under his belt, is sure to be one of the highest energy sets in the 10-year history of the Lundifest.  In New Orleans tradition, the night will start out with brass versions of hip-hop hits by New Orleans natives The Hot 8 Brass Band.  Come early and stay late, because Republic’s long-time resident, DJ G, will be spinning top 40s and hip-hop classics before, between, and after all the live sets.  Performances will start shortly after the parades pass downtown, so watch the Orpheus parade nearby and walk right on over for another epic Lundifest.

Time: 9:00 PM – 3:00 AM

Venue: Republic (828 S Peters St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Mardi Gras Takeover @ Masquerade

For the past hot minute, Bernice Burgos has been making quite the name for herself.  The bartender turned “urban model” turned entrepreneur (3.7M Twitter followers!) has been turning up everywhere from your favorite artist’s music video to hip-hop morning radio stations to the gossip websites, thanks to her social media beef with Tiny Harris, wife of rapper T.I. and fellow reality TV star (4.5M Twitter followers!).  OK, OK, so reality TV may not be your cup of tea…. but rest assured, Ms. B’s presence as the marquee host for Masquerade’s Mardi Gras afterparty will explain why this venue inside Harrah’s Casino will be the “it” place of the night filled with famous/not-so-famous/wannabe-famous Instagram models, hip-hop celebrities, and known athletes such as the “Honey Badger” Tyrann Mathieu (a Lousiana State University legend) and local hero (and fantasy football god) Alvin Kamara of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.  Pony up and bottle up… because if you can’t YOLO on Mardi Gras, you probably shouldn’t YOLO ever.

Time: 10:00 PM – 3:30 AM

Venue: Masquerade (8 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Minneapolis Super Bowl 2018 Party Guide

The NFL season comes to a close this week with its championship game, Super Bowl 52 (or LII, when in Rome), which this year will depart from the norm of warm-weather locales to take place in a jewel of a stadium on the frozen tundra of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  This year’s contest pits the favorite New England Patriots – seeking back-to-back rings and their sixth title in franchise history – against the underdog Philadelphia Eagles, who are in the hunt for their franchise’s first-ever title.  The plucky Eagles earned their spot in big dance by beating the heavily favored Minnesota Vikings, who if they had beaten the Eagles would have been the first NFL team to play the Super Bowl in their own home stadium. (As ol’ Donnie Trump would say, SAD!)

Unlike the hometown Vikes, Discotech has indeed found its way to the Super Bowl Weekend bash in Minny.  To celebrate this week’s well-timed in-app launch of Minneapolis / St. Paul – our twenty-seventh metro market – we give you our top picks.  Not for the football game – who knows who will win??? – but rather the picks for the best Super Bowl postgame parties/events around the Twin Cities – sure to be star-studded and celebrity-filled – for visitors and locals to celebrate the Big Game:

Big Game Weekend Kickoff Party f/ Cardi B @ Privé

One of the best things about the past NFL season was the decision to allow players to perform choreographed big play / scoring play celebration dances.  This made the football games much more fun for NFL fans and resulted in hundreds of hilarious, exuberant, joyful, and memorable moments like this.    Funny enough, in addition to being the year of the touchdown dance, 2017 was also the year of “I don’t gotta dance… I make money moves!”  This catchy-as-hell hook has been arguably the most repeated hip-hop lyric since the NFL season started, and it belonged to Grammy nominee and current hip-hop “It” girl Cardi B.   It’s no surprise that Ms. B – the most talked about female hip-hop artist since Nicki Minaj – is splashed all over the 2018 Super Bowl scene, headlining no less than five big weekend events.  Her march from the locker room to the 50-yard line for kickoff starts Thursday night at Privé, a hip-hop nightclub brand imported from New York, Miami, and Atlanta to capitalize upon the growing upscale urban scene in Minneapolis / St. Paul.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Privé (315 N 1st Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55401)

Travis Scott @ Myth

Travis Scott’s music had already taken him to quite a few places, even before he was famous enough to be recognized in any of them.  He has lived on the east and west coasts of the U.S., as well as the “third coast” of his native Houston, Texas.  However, in 2017 he really came into his own, gaining worldwide acclaim after being promoted by one of his earliest fans, superstar Kanye West.  Fresh off the announcement of the moving of his Las Vegas residency from Hakkasan Group over to Tao Group, Travis now ascends to an even bigger stage than Sin City as the feature headliner for Super Bowl Weekend festivities.  PJAM Productions, Twin City Live, ECL Events & Notoriety invite fans to experience a wild night with Travis Scott, DJ Spade, DJ Reach, and other special guests at a locally revered Minnesota institution that has been newly renovated in time for the Super Bowl party crowds.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Myth (3090 Southlawn Dr, Minneapolis, MN 55109)

TAO Minneapolis Big Game Weekend Takeover Day Three f/ Afrojack, G-Eazy, & Nick Cannon @ The Exchange

The third day of the pre-Super Bowl festivities figures to be the most hectic and highest in-demand, as nearly all fans and revelers will have made it into town and are willing to brave the inclement winter temperatures to find the best parties.  Tao Group is saving their best for this signature night, with big performances by Afrojack, G-Eazy, and Nick Cannon across three separate venues at The Exchange MPLS complex.  G-Eazy will do a separate concert at the Lumber Exchange hall and then afterward join Afrojack at the Pourhouse; jack-of-all-trades Nick Cannon will be at the Exchange / Alibi Lounge venue on MC/singing/rapping/comedy/entertaining duties with support by legendary NYC DJ Mix Master Mike.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: The Exchange (10 S 5th St #11, Minneapolis, MN 55402)

DJ Khaled @ Aqua

 As its name suggests, Aqua’s sleek seating, translucent second level balcony railings, and surreal blue-hued lighting combine to create the illusion of partying in an aquarium (getting tanked in a tank, get it?).  A popular bachelor/bachelorette party destination for the upscale twentysomething locals in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Aqua offers a host of amenities to make any celebratory occasion an evening to remember.  As such, it’s an ideal venue for one of the world’s biggest hip-hop moguls to throw an epic party on one of the world’s biggest sports weekends.  Khaled’s stage show at last year’s Coachella – aka the Super Bowl of music festivals – was a wild one full of energy and A-list cameos. We’re expecting his stage show at the actual Super Bowl – aka the Coachella of sports – to be even better.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Aqua (400 N 1st Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55401)

Big Game Watch Party w/ Floyd Mayweather, 2Chainz, Lil Wayne, & Fabolous @ Privé

There’s only one athlete that knows more than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady about winning championships and defending titles: boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.  Money May defeated MMA mega-superstar Conor McGregor and retired last September with a perfect 50-0 record, and in his post-career days he’s launched a Vegas strip club and become a fixture on the hip-hop circuit as a party host for high-end events with black America’s A-List actors, musicians, and athletes.  Rubbing elbows and talking pigskin with the ever-talkative Mayweather and his TMT crew should be enough of a draw in itself, but with three legendary rappers also providing the postgame fireworks entertainment late into the chilly Minnesota morning, this event will surely be one of the toughest weekend party tickets to score anywhere on the frozen tundra.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Privé (315 N 1st Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55401)

Super LIV on Sunday @ The Pourhouse

Dave Grutman and crew’s infamous hip-hop playground – where fresh NBA champs go instead of Disney World, rap beefs get hashed out, and Lil Wayne and Drake show up on random weekends without advance notice – imports its own resident DJ Stevie J from sunny South Beach to the frozen north.  After the big game, expect to see quite few Eagles and Patriots players – and players from other NFL teams – in here either drowning their sorrows or celebrating the pinnacle of their careers, making this the big party weekend’s dessert with cherry on top.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: The Pourhouse (10 S 5th St #11, Minneapolis, MN 55402)
