Atlanta clubs shouldnt strive to be the best club, just a really good club. In Atlanta, for some strange reason, IF A CLUB GETS NATIONAL ATTENTION, IT CLOSES. Think about this: When Jermaine Dupri showcased our nightlife in Welcome to Atlanta, most of the clubs he mentioned closed shortly after. Velvet Room? Closed. Kaya? Closed. Kream? Closed. Shark Bar? Closed. Club 112? Open, but it moved from the original location to Peachtree Street and, frankly, has never been the same. This years victim? Vision (which sat on the hallowed grounds of Kaya). Dupri didnt shout out Vision, but celebs started flying into town to hold events at the newly renovated mega-club. Alas, Visions lot will become lofts. Take note, club owners: Be successful, just not too successful.
