What an opening. Even the new curfew in effect couldn't damper the opening of Rouge. I thought because of all the drama going on that no one would be there. Well, it was packed to the rafters. The space is really very nice. The sound system is banging and gay Santo Domingo was out in force last night.
If the first night was any indication, then Rouge should be a hit. Everyone is now going to have to step their games up. I don't know if there is enough business to service 3 clubs, but we shall soon see.
When I got there it was so much smoke from the smoke machine for the show, that none of the photos came out. I had to wait for things to clear out a bit to take some pictures. The show was great and professional and they had a screen over the stage so that you could see everything.
The club will be open from Thursday to Monday, from 10pm. The price is RD$150 pesos on all nights except Saturday, when it is RD$200 pesos. The club is located in the Gazcue section of Santo Domingo, very close to the Colonial Zone. The address is Avenida Bolivar #72.
Good luck, Rouge!
Extra: David Lee has a great review of the club on his blog.
