Best “Best Club” Curse

If a club gets national attention, it closes

Staff Pick

Atlanta clubs shouldn’t 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 year’s victim? Vision (which sat on the hallowed grounds of Kaya). Dupri didn’t shout out Vision, but celebs started flying into town to hold events at the newly renovated mega-club. Alas, Vision’s lot will become lofts. Take note, club owners: Be successful, just not too successful.
