The address of 708 Sprint Street in Atlanta, GA should ring a bell to almost every gay ATLien as well as to those who frequent the city. That address use to belong to one of the longest running gay night clubs in Atlanta known as Club 708 and Lorrettas previously before that. The owner of the nightclub closed it’s doors for good last summer and sold the venue to Traxx. Traxx has formed a firm called Traxx Clubs International, LLC, which will own and operate the newest staple in Atlanta community, XS Ultra Lounge, and is promising to revive & redefine Atlanta’s gay nightlife once again.
Traxx has been working the past six months totally renovating the inside of the building from the floor to the walls to the ceiling transforming the venue from what use to be a teeny bopper go to nightspot into an ultra sexy lounge and nightclub for the 21 & up crowd. Tonight, XS Ultra Lounge opens it doors to Atlanta and visitors for a Sneak Peak of the new nightclub.
We got a chance to personally see the venue this past week for a private V.I.P. reception and we must say, the promises were delivered and Atlanta is in for an amazing new nightclub and nightlife!
XS Ultra Lounge is an ultra chic bistro, cocktail lounge and dance club. The venue features all new renovations, plush VIP sections, a delectable menu, signature cocktails, an intimate dance floor, as well as another massive dance space. The posh new establishment located in the heart of midtown has a state of the art light and sound system, adorned with big screens and plasma televisions, enveloped in an environment fit for Atlanta’s elite.
Not only will XS Ultralounge be a night club but it will be an after work lounge and bistro from 5 PM – 10 PM, Tuesday thru Sunday. One of the best parts of the location of XS is that it’s in the heart of Atlanta, GA (midtown), walking distance from MARTA for locals and across the street from the Melia hotel, which will be the host hotel of Traxx Atlanta/Traxx Girls Pure Heat Atlanta Black Pride weekend this year.
Traxx will continue to run it’s other location in Decatur, GA as well for the 18 & up crowd which will continue to be open until 5am and will serve as the after hours party for those leaving XS Ultra lounge on Saturday night which is open 10pm-3am.
You can get your sneak peek of XS Ultra Lounge tonight and if you are 25 & up admission is free all night long! For more information follow XSUltraLounge on Twitter & Facebook.
