Melbourne’s elite crew of DJs have a new home on Saturday nights and its where your Saturday night escapade should be as well. The Motel Rooftop Saturdays is giving dirty house and electro a new home in Melbourne. The new night at the old South Melbourne club launched last Saturday (July 3rd) and I have all the juicy observations of it right here. It’s the sort of names and music that even the cold weather couldn’t keep away the mini-skirts. The place has the ‘go-hard-or-go-home’ musical atmosphere with tunes that we all scream over, flowing into our ears.
Opening night was a success for the organisers who provided a full house after hard weeks of flourishing promotion. Watch how you will become hooked to the new vibe at the old club located on York Street. For those who know Motel as a venue, it is made up of two floors. Now, these two floors are infested with the best dirty house, electro and everything under the dance umbrella you know and love. All these bangers are brought to you by your favourites – Boogs, Spacey Space, Dean Paps and Nick Coleman are just a few names on rotation, with weekly special guests included. These are the names that make your mouth water and they are all under the one roof…or should I say on the roof itself!
Both floors were packed on opening night and the success will seem to continue with the word spreading around during the week. Maybe too packed however as I overheard one patron say it was ‘over crowded’. But of course, a massive crowd would be attracted to invade a highly anticipated launch night such as this one that did not know what to expect.
Nevertheless, if you’re missing the old big guns, previous banger tracks are a sure-thing at Motel and with the risk of offending, I cannot describe how everyone goes retarded for the music and the guys that play it. So come dress casual and neat and join the new blooming family!
The rooftop will be exciting to see during the summer as the rooftop itself will suit summer nights. But don’t let that stop you from coming out in the winter (heaters are provided in the outdoors area) and enjoying what Melbourne has to offer. I know you might be sick of your normal Saturday night routine, so here is your new home and it is recommended by me!
Type in ‘The Motel Rooftop’ into the search engine of your Facebook and keep updated on special guests set to make an appearance. July 10 is the night to witness our local hero T-Rek, the man behind the magical ‘Out My Bitch’.
If you had the privilege to attend the first night, make sure you look out for your head here on Clubsguide in the Motel Rooftop gallery, and keep in touch during the coming weeks because I know you’ll be there!
