After an eight-year run at La Rumba, Lipgloss, one of the city's longest running dance nights, just moved to to Beauty Bar. But before Lipgloss moved into La Rumba, the spot was home to Oxygen, which was awarded the Best Gay Bar for Gay Men in 2003 in Westword's Best of Denver. Starting tonight, La Rumba is bringing another weekly GLBT night to the club in place of Lipgloss: Cream Fridays Re-Loaded, a resurrection of sorts of Cream Friday, which was a mainstay at Tracks from 2003 to 2007.
Resident DJ Krhyminyl and guest DJs will spin hip-hop, R&B and house and there will also be go-go dancers and give-aways. Drink specials include $3 PBR, $5 3 Olive Vodka and $5 Long Island Iced Tea. Cover is $5 from 9 to 11 p.m. and $10 after 11 p.m. There's also Cream Friday Indigo Happy Hour from 6 to 9 p.m. with $3 wine, well and domestic beers.
Tonight's debut of Cream Fridays Re-Loaded will also be the official Pride Weekend Kick-Off Boys Party, which is sponsored by The Center. La Rumba also hosts The Center's Official Elitch's Pride Day After-Party featuring DJ Tatiana on Monday, June 18. Doors open at 7 p.m. and there's a $5 cover.
