Opening Tonight In Brasília: Glow Lounge



If you read Made In Brazil on a regular basis, you may have seen pictures of the Glow party in Brasília, which started four years ago and is now one of the most talked about parties in the country's capital. This week the boys behind the party are unveiling their latest project, Glow Lounge. The space, which is part of the Espaço Cultural Contemporâneo or  Ecco complex, will operate as a mix of restaurant, bar, and nightclub.

Starting on Monday, April 25, Glow Lounge will be serving lunch from Mondays to Saturdays, and will serve as a bar during the evenings, with a special selection of drinks and appetizers. On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, the dancefloor will be open and the space will turn into a nightclub, hosting the city's best DJs.

Glow Lounge opens to the public tonight. Knowing how extremely competent the guys behind the project are, I would certainly recommend checking out the place if you are in Brasília.

The capoeira player is the new go-go boy: Brazilian nightclub The Week threw its second party in London this past weekend at The Coronet with DJ Renato Cecin and a legion of dancers dressed up in feathers and sequins.

The Week Is Turning 6

0921107 The Week São Paulo, Brazil's biggest and most famous gay nightclub, is celebrating its sixth anniversary with three huge parties this coming weekend.

On Friday, September 24, the club is taking its resident DJs João Neto and Paulo Pacheco along with London DJ Paul Heron to Pacha in São Paulo for a theme party called Safado (or Naughty).

On Saturday night, the party returns to The Week's headquarters with special guest DJ Offer Nissim. DJs Renato Cecin, Paulo Pacheco, Morais, Herbert Tonn, Grá Ferreira, Vlad, and Kiron will also be spinning on the club's two dancefloors.

To close the weekend with a bang, The Week is hosting an Extra Large edition of its pool party on Sunday starting at 3 pm at Clube Atlético Nacional.

The Boys From Brasilia Sure Know How To Party

I haven't been to the Let's Club party in Brasília yet (as a matter of fact I have never even been to Brasília), but from what I hear the boys from Brasília are giving São Paulo clubs a run for their money with incredibly well produced theme parties, hot go-go boys, and major drag performances.

This past weekend the party had a nautical theme and included a special dance number with the club's resident go-go boys, as well as a super drag production of Kylie's Get Outta My Way. Watch it in the videos below.

For lots of pictures of the Voyage party, head over to Let's Club.
