Le Rouge Lounge

Introducing Le Rouge Lounge, Wynwood’s avant-garde nightlife destination. Opened its doors on June 11, the 7,000 sq. ft. venue has taken a new spin on live performance entertainment.

Open Thursday through Saturday from 9PM through 3AM, this French-inspired enclave will serve as a destination for national music acts and world-renowned DJs, bringing a next-generation live music venue experience to the city.

Le Rouge Lounge is a meeting place where service is paramount and privacy guaranteed, where beauty in every form is nurtured and the unexpected is to be expected. It provides a luxurious and visually stimulating ambiance, highlighted by its vintage decor, state-of-the-art sound, video, and 3D mapping projection systems.

The lounge will be the first venue in Miami to be centered around a 360-degree DJ “in the round” booth, showcasing a diverse array of performers, DJs, bands, and solo artists in an intimate and upscale setting. It boasts a live stage draped in red velvet, spacious enough to accommodate a 10-piece band.

At Le Rouge Lounge mixology is an art form, with veteran mixologist Samer Abdallah crafting prohibition-era cocktails with an unexpected, modern twist. This intimate and upscale space allows publishers, influencers, decision-makers, movers & shakers to connect; it’s a space where synergies percolate, stars are born, and masterpieces are conceived.

With their dance card already booked with album release parties and city events including Swim Week Miami and Art Basel, Le Rouge Lounge promises to be the Magic City’s hottest destination for live entertainment and private events.

Tonight, and all weekend long, all house music lovers and entertainment-focused media are invited to experience the glitz and glam that is Le Rouge Lounge. Blending the best elements from the past and future with disco, electronic beats, prohibition-inspired mixology, and highly engaging video technology, Le Rouge guarantees all guests will be movin’ and groovin’.

Le Rouge Lounge is located at 318 NW 23rd St. in Miami, FL 33127, and offers valet parking, as well as the largest self-parking lot in Wynwood.

XOXO THURSDAYS

Every Thursday night, ladies can enjoy complimentary cocktails until 11 PM while enjoying Miami’s top DJs playing disco rewind beats with a modern twist!

Friday, August 6  DURANTE Takes Over Le Rouge

As a producer and DJ, Durante has drawn to the edge and intersections of house and techno. Raw rhythm and bass under tonal melodies resonate with his version of musical honesty. His style isn’t built on contrived pop formulas or lyrics about eternal youth. Instead, he starts with time-honored four on the floor, elaborates with thumping bass, builds mood with melodic chords, and garnishes with tribal percussive textures. Equally inspired by the compositions of Duke Ellington, classic Italo-disco, and early Cocoon records, Durante strives to create a body of work as versatile as his experiences.

Saturday, August 7  Phantoms “The Dive Tour”

Phantoms are a live electronic act that do exactly that. Often tough to box in…. their style is best described as blurring the lines of house music & indie-dance. Incorporating distinctive synth and drum patterns, the duo has become synonymous with their ‘genre’ of alternative electronica.

AREA21 – Pogo

Following the release of “La La La,” AREA21‘s debut single which has already surpassed 5 million combined streams, the adventure continues with today’s release of “Pogo.” The song exudes the feeling of being completely uninhibited, living life wild and free, which makes it the perfect soundtrack for the coming summer months. Written by Martin Garrix and Maejor, Martin also plays electric guitar on the track, one of the many talents from this multifaceted artist. Like most of their previous work, the track is a clean electronic dance bop. 

AREA21’s video for “Pogo” picks up where “La La La” left off with the two alien travelers M & M having crashed landed on earth, standing on their recently crashed spaceship and running from the law. Their escape includes a very unorthodox mode of transportation and ends with a rest stop in a futuristic Las Vegas, Nevada. 

About AREA21 

The music of AREA21 follows a story arc of two alien travelers, M & M, who are tripping through the cosmos spreading a message of unity and good vibes when they accidentally come crashing to Earth. Their adventures are portrayed musically and visually throughout a series of songs and accompanying animated videos produced by award-winning animation studio, Titmouse (Run the Jewels, Dua Lipa,) set to roll out this spring & summer and culminating in an album due out this fall.

Honoring Mandela in South Africa

2018 is a momentous year for South Africa with the Nelson Mandela Centenary marking what would have been 100 years since the iconic leader’s birth.

Officially July 18, 2018 – Mandela Day – marks this historic milestone as throughout the nation, and across the world, people celebrate South Africa’s first black President who was an inspirational anti-apartheid revolutionary and one of the greatest human rights advocates the world has ever seen. This year, South African Tourism invites US travelers to explore his legacy.

In Mandela’s honor, national celebrations will see a series of high-profile events and memorials. In New York, the One World Trade Center’s spire will be lit with the colors of the South African flag to honor the occasion.

On July 17, a day before Mandela Day, former US president Barack Obama will deliver the 16th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg. The theme will be “Renewing the Mandela Legacy and Promoting Active Citizenship in a Changing World,” and will honor the centennial of Mandela’s birth.

In other recent news, The Global Citizen Festival will expand from its regular location in New York City to Johannesburg for a special Mandela 100 edition this December, with Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran and Chris Martin as headliners in honor of his legacy.

In Cape Town’s City Hall, a life-sized statue of Madiba will be unveiled on 24th July in the place where he had his first speech upon release from his imprisonment in Robben Island.

Internationally, the world’s largest musical tribute will also take place on Mandela Day through a series of charitable concerts held live across the world in support of improving literacy among poverty- stricken children. This important musical tribute is organized by Mandela Concerts with the goal of raising millions of dollars towards various projects including building 100 new library units in South Africa’s most vulnerable schools, developing a high school skills program, and providing 200 Toddler Trolley library programs for 5 to 6 year-old South African children by 2021.

Travelers interested to follow in Mandela’s footsteps can download Madiba’s Journey app. South African Tourism, in collaboration with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, recently re-launched the app to include 100 historic landmarks and sites that influenced Mandela’s life. From the Eastern Cape to Johannesburg to Cape Town and beyond, the app allows users to customize their own itineraries and helps guide them through key landmarks, offering context, photos and curated audio narration about Mandela’s life and the 27 years he spent as a political prisoner. A few notable landmarks are highlighted below:

The Eastern Cape: Explore Nelson Mandela’s birthplace – an area of outstanding rugged beauty with pristine coastline, virgin bush and subtropical forests.

Robben Island: Tour the jail cell where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his life, through the eyes of those who experienced it first-hand. Many tours are led by ex-political prisoners.

Constitution Hill in Johannesburg: Formerly used as a prison, it was here where hundreds of political prisoners were held, including Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo. Constitution Hill is now a living museum and home to South Africa’s Constitutional Court.

The Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg: Acknowledged as the pre-eminent museum in the world dealing with 20th century South Africa, the museum tells the apartheid story.

KwaZulu-Natal: Visit this province to see the Nelson Mandela Capture Site. After being on the run for 16 months, Madiba was captured and arrested here in August 1962.

Voting Line Sculpture in Port Elizabeth: A tribute to the thousands of South Africans who participated in the nation’s first democratic elections in 1994.

South African Tourism encourages travelers to celebrate, honor and explore the legacy of Mandela through Mandela themed travel packages.

To book a Nelson Mandela inspired trip, speak to your travel agent or advisor. As a sample, South African Airways Vacation is currently offering a 10-day Mandela’s Journey to Freedom which gives visitors a first-hand, cultural experience following his footsteps as founding father of the New South Africa. Starts at US $2,999* per person. *Terms and conditions apply*

Popular Pub Will Maintain Authentic Spirit and Atmosphere After Relocation

After 27 memorable years in Downtown San Luis Obispo, SLO Brewing Company is happy to announce the expansion and relocation of its popular restaurant, bar and concert venue to a new space on Higuera Street this December.

Over the years, SLO Brew has become an iconic cultural and musical hot spot that features local and world famous bands and performers.

Together, all these elements create an atmosphere of good vibes, fun and accessibility that keep their following coming back.

The new SLO Brew is slated to open in December at 736 Higuera Street, just a few hundred feet away from the original Garden Street location and still in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. Located in the historic Carissa Building, the new space will feature new elements, including a wood-fired pizza oven, an outdoor, creek-side dining patio with fire pits, and four all-suite lofts designed with a modern urban aesthetic on the upper floor. The restaurant, bar, brewing tanks and “kettles”, and the concert stage will share the 6,500-square-foot first floor, while the Whiskey Lounge will overlook the main floor from the mezzanine, complete with reserved seating, bottle service and a private bar.
