Get ready to taste the rainbow. Candy Bar, a new weekly LGBT dance party, launches Thursday, Feb. 6 at Live Nightclub in Ann Arbor.
Created to offer a fresh option to the dance and gay party scene in Ann Arbor and metro Detroit, the weekly event will include theme parties, guest entertainers and DJs.
Along with drink specials, mixes from DJ Lancelot and host Bobby Hoffman, opening night for Candy Bar will feature performances by Gia Gunn and Jade, former contestants on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
Jade, a Chicago native, is known for her rivalry with fellow season one contestant Rebecca Glasscock. Offscreen, Jade brings passionate entertainment, having gone so far as to emulate Britney Spears’ MTV performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” – python and all.
Also from Chicago, and known for serving “beauty, attitude, and sass while dripping in jewels,” Gia Gunn will appear on the upcoming season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” premiering this February on LOGO.
Live Nightclub, at the corner of First and Huron in downtown Ann Arbor, features two full bars, large dance floor, prompt service and cocktails. A variety of live events occur every month.
Beginning Thursday, Feb. 6, Candy Bar runs 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Live Nightclub, 102 S. First St., Ann Arbor. Admission to launch night costs $5. A $10 VIP All Access Pass can be purchased, offering a meet-and-greet and photo with the entertainers.
