Back in March I reported that the Gruv Lounge would take over the space at 3829 Sixth Ave., in Tacoma that was formerly occupied by Hell’s Kitchen. And the new dance club opened it’s doors this weekend. I poked my head in there on Saturday and was impressed by how thoroughly the space had been made over. House music is the style du jour these days. Wall murals favor stylish serpents over gaudy flames and she-devils and there are private karaoke rooms with song books and consoles in Korean.
Nah, don’t expect Atomic Outlaws or South 11th to come back and headline this incarnation of the club. And here are a few pics I snapped as I was passing through to give you a better idea of what the place looks like.
