Velvet Club and Lounge

Comments Off on Velvet Club and Lounge

What: Velvet Club &  Lounge

Where: 208 Water Street

Style: Gay Bar



St. John’s is a fair sized city and offers a wide range of bars, clubs and pubs. It also has a quite big gay community. Surprisingly enough the city was lacking a gay bar for a long time. Luc Viau recognized the need as well as the business opportunity. He implemented his idea by choosing former Headquarters as venue. It’s not only a great venue but one that has some history in the local gay scene. Rumours spread fast and St. John’s gay community got very excited about the idea of a new gay bar. The space got updated and on Friday April 20th 2012 Velvet Club & Lounge opened its doors.

The split-level space is spotless. While there is a bar and booths on both levels, a wide open dance floor is the center of the downstairs area. Multicolored lights flash over the dance floor and a huge disco ball hovers above it. The upstairs offers a great view over the dance floor.

The turnout on the opening night was amazing. The  place was full and so was the dance floor while DJ OTG was spinning the turntables. A happy crowd of all ages celebrated Velvet’s opening and the friendly staff did its part to make it a fantastic night. Of course DJ Fabian is also part of the team and will be found behind the turntables regularly.

It’s hoped that there will a lot more fantastic nights at Velvet. If this weekend was any sign of things to come, the signs are certainly good…
