The Upstairs Lounge 80s

Another one of our award winning nights was Saturdays 80's dance party. Liz the bartender was probably as big a draw as Pete our DJ. We took a trip back to when MTV began we waited all day to see our favorite 80's band and their music video. Spinning the best music from the "Decade of decadence" the house was always packed with tunes from Bowie to Blondie, Depeche Mode to Duran Duran, The Clash to The Cure and more. People called it "The Qube" and came at 10:15 on a Saturday night. Acid wash jeans, leg warmers, stripes, polkadots and huge sholder pads were the fashion.
