After a full day of recovery from all that monster juice I think it’s safe to say this past weekend was a fright to remember! I don’t know if the anticipation leading up to, or the actual party was more exciting?! Although when I walked into the club as a ‘regular’ patron I pretty much exploded in excitement…
This is the first year I’ve gotten experience a Lavish Halloween (as a guest) in full force! The game plan was fully laid out and my team did an amazing job executing the coveted weekend! Thanks to everyone who dressed up, brought the spirit, ate all the candy & danced like we’re gonna die young! (a shout out to DJ Pablo Ramirez for a perfect monster mash up)
A HUGE thank you also goes out to the staff, entertainers, TMA bloggers for seamlessly orchestrating your own piece, and to the photography team for capturing all the awesome memories.
You know… the best part about my job is when I’m out and about in the city and when LAVISH happens to come up in conversation, 9/10 times folks mention how friendly, open, happy & diverse the clientele are. So thank YOU all so much for bringing the party, the positive vibes, opening up your hearts up and allowing us to penetrate you with all we got!
The weekend is over but the party in still continuing tomorrow night for CAMEO All Ages Halloween. There will be a 19+ drinking section in the lounge and the dance floor will be for all ages with many local entertainers. Thanks in advance for letting us share the space with the many LGBTQ youth. It is a very special night for them.

Interesting find from BBC Radio 1′s Dance Anthems. Fun, Catchy, and deliciously Bizarre. What do you think Lavish? Is it a floor filler or a one hit wonder?
There’s something about summer & urban music! It’s so sexy and grimy! The mix starts off with Far East Movement’s ‘Dirty Bass’ then gets even dirtier when the moombahton kicks in. We mix in some urban house beats and end it with a little bump & grind. Enjoy!
It’s The Morning After and you have a Strange Condition, it’s called a hangover (lol). Here’s a compilation of some of my favorite house vocals both chill & melodic, but will get you moving and doing those chores on a lazy, hungover Sunday morning. Enjoy!
Well, I was gonna save my patio spiel for the grand opening on Saturday, June 9th (event soon to be launched). But since the patio…& the weather were ahead of schedule, I may as well give you the inside scoop on LAVISH’ baby brother ELEVATE.
Believe it or not, a rooftop patio was in the plan since day one. Money ran short so it only made sense to hold the project off and gradually ELEVATE “above lavish”. First we had the caged fence that kept falling over. Then we built the 20′ x 6′ fenced
pig pen patio. Next was the 20′ x 15′ jail cell smoking patio with soaring 20′ walls… Which is now a beautiful glass railing stairwell leading to the new 20′ x 50′ rooftop patio we call ELEVATE.
Summer of 2011 I sampled many rooftop patios across Toronto, “…I really want to bring a piece of this to my city!”. The ideas were grande & exciting and the investment would be over the top! It was a big risk but I had to finally take that dive into the deep end…and it couldn’t be half ass. I think London (especially the downtown core) deserves the best so it only made sense to build something Londoners would be really proud of!
It started with a 10 minute coffee meeting with my contractor, weeks of planning , 4 months of solid work, then the vision became reality. Thank you to all my contractors involved with the project & a bigger thank you to all the LAVISH regulars who have been so patient with the construction inconveniences. I couldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for you!
The two soft opening weekends of testing the waters out have been immensely successful and the excitement has rippled out to many folks I’ve never seen before! A big thanks to my staff for all their hard work maintaining a safe space for the LGBTQ community and everyone who loves to party at London’s most diverse nightclub & now roof top patio.
Enjoy the stages of our journey “to the top”:
I wanna also thank the staff for holding down the forte, it’s only a couple of times a year I can get away and I know LAVISH will be in good hands because of you guys! The most amazing staff!
Our local drag queens! You girls try so hard and I’ve seen you come such a long way. You all give it your best and that’s what really counts. Any slips or falls it’s all apart of the fun, you just got to laugh it off because you’re the ones who have the balls to go up there and perform for over hundreds! I’m so excited for your group Valentine’s Show – it’s gonna be amazing Keep it up girls – Cardiff, Victoria Moore, Black Diamond.
And thanks to all the amazing diverse folks who come to LAVISH and making it so much fun! See you in a week
