Badu NV Nightclub-Lounges official Celebrity Weekend, “Put You To
Bed,” Grand Finale hosted by J. Holiday had a little something for
everyone that simply wanted to enjoy the night and get away from the chaos of
the world, even “if only for one night”, Big Luther.
When I hear the two words – “celebrity
weekend” – images flash through my mind of drunken college- age
youth, people who simply want to live outside of their financial means for a
weekend, cell phones stuffed in bras and bourgeoisie club owners. But as I
approach NV and glance down the line, I see that tonight is going to be a night
for the grown and sexy, designer labels, ghetto fabulous, eclectic crowd.
Immediately I feel at ease because the vibe tells me these people are here
simply to have a good time.
When I approach the doormen, they greet me pleasantly and I notice about 50
individuals representing every gambit of the rainbow lined up in front of them,
trying to catch the 9:30 p.m. early bird special admission. If these 50-plus
people didnt enter soon the party was going to start right at the door.
Several had already started to get their dance on. A positive vibe was in the
atmosphere and the female to male ratio was in alignment for a blessed night.
When I ask a few of these young women how often they frequent NV, each one was
a return customer. On my way there, I stopped for directions and the gas
station attendant responded that she was a regular of NV.
The minute I stepped through the front doors of NV I knew it was among the
premiere nightclubs-lounges in the area. Transfixed 42-inch plasma flat screens
and LED lights hovering over the dance floor and over the bars in the main and
additional rooms in the back, a DJ in each room providing the musical
stimulation the people craved for, upper and lower level VIP sections, pool
tables aligning the walls with neon lights, a “chill-out” lounge
section in the back for those that simply wanted to enjoy the company of others
on the plush red velvet coaches. Instantly, I found myself on the dance floor,
dancing to the sound of Sean Kingston. The 200,000-plus watts of sound
intensifying the moment and providing a conducive atmosphere for a good time.
Next, I moved to an additional room in the back where the DJ was playing
new and old Hip-Hop favorites that every party-goer knows the words to.
Behind me I found a fully stocked premium bar, where I engaged in a
conversation with three young ladies which ranged from Obama to Harry Potter.
Not only were the women beautiful on this night, but they could provide
NV Nightclub-Lounge is not like your typical one-night stand, pretty at night
in the fancy lights simply for the CIAA weekend. This night and location
represented a span of broad music and cultural diversity. Forget what you may
have heard about the South dont know how to party. NV offers something for
everyone and is on pace to redefine nightlife in this region. I never did see
J. Holiday. However, that didnt hinder the DJs seamless blends of the high
energy anthem and downtempo musical favorites.
