Got to give them credit for committing to their concept. It is like drinking inside of a lava lamp that is itself inside of a volcano. And that is a high... Read more

Eulogy for Lava Lounge I don't do last words often, but these were my words. or at least as best as I can remember them from the last 80s Night at Lava Lounge... "It began with EZLou, carried on with DJ Doug who opened the night for us, so give him a hand... Next was Electric and finally yours truly, the SamAraI... The Lava Lounge has been the home of some truly great DJs and alternative 80s music... We'll carry on the great music at Jaggerbush... Again I want to thank Doug for found memories and for coming back for one more night... I want to thank Steve and Scott, without them, none of us would be here at a truly special, if not world famous venue... I want to thank the crews were have had working, like the lovely miss Bethany, Mikey Frug, and others who have kept you in drink all this time... Not too many places would have people bar backing and bringing up cases of beer when they weren't even working... We are truly family and have each others backs and that’s something special... Finally, and I've said it over and over these past few years, thanks to all of you who come out, for without you we would be nothing... A special thanks to all of our regulars for no business runs without you guys... Signing off for the last times... Thank you... To the next..."

I wanted to send out a special thank you to the whole Lava Lounge crew, Mikey Frug, Bethany Leah T, Monika Jean, Sam Samarai Hund, as well as Scott Kramer, and everyone else that's been in and out of those red doors, for putting up with me and giving me the opportunity to DJ and play there with both bands, MLH and STC. The past few years have been a great time, capped off by a fantastic 80's night this past Friday, the fates conspired for that happen. There's nothing like playing the best songs for my best friends! Sad to see things change, but grateful for the fun nights and great times. One weekend to go ! All the best!

The Lava Lounge will be closing April 30, 2016. Thank You for 20 years! It was a tough decision but it was time for a change. We will be reopening late May as Monster. We are partnering with David Stanton, owner of gaylifetelevision.com to open a LGBTQ-Friendly establishment. The interior will mainly be retained but with some minor changes. (We are not demolishing the place) Stay tuned for more details and Grand Closing parties that we are planning. Steve Zumoff & Scott Kramer Owners
