Nite Bite: A Godskitchen goodbye (and hello?) for Roger Sanchez
Thu, Dec 10, 2009 (5:45 p.m.)
Didn’t get enough of Roger Sanchez on Wednesday night? If you weren’t at Body English until the wee hours of the morning on December 9, the house music DJ/producer headlined the final Godskitchen party at the venue, and it looks like he’ll be back in Las Vegas almost before he has to BIC his head again.
House heads were out in full force to say goodbye to the midweek party, and to wish a happy birthday to Angel Management Group’s Zee Zandi and DJ Shift. For their annual themed party—this year’s theme being sports attire—Zandi donned a Sonics jersey. And Shift? Well, he was dressed in a pink baseball hat and ringer tee. (We must have missed the joke behind that one).
The kitties bounced to the sounds of Sanchez, and Body’s long-gone go-gos returned wearing angel wings and halos for the event. The party was so packed that the lounge area at the top of the stairs upon entering the club was open — a space we’d forgotten existed because it was rarely used on Wednesdays.
And reminders abounded that this was the last Godskitchen at Body English. A few servers were spotted already wearing tanks with the Vanity logo, which, in case you hadn’t been out on the club circuit in a minute—shame on you—is the new Hard Rock Hotel nightclub opening on New Year’s Eve. Body English will have its last hurrah the same night. Godskitchen will be moving to the new venue (and Body English transforming into an afterhours space).
Which brings us back to Roger Sanchez. When Godskitchen resumes at Vanity on Thursday nights, Sanchez will earn the honor of not only being the last big DJ to play at Body’s Godskitchen, but the first internationally known DJ to play Vanity’s Godskitchen. Interesting… Also announced, Tony Arzadon and Nathan Scott, who opened last night with a tag team set, will become the new Godskitchen residents at Vanity. So, don’t feel bad if you didn’t make it out to Body English December 9. You’ll get to experience it all again on January 14—in a shiny, new venue.
And don’t worry, Godskitchen will still be free for locals.
Though masculine in lines and furnishings, there are sensuous feminine touches to be found within Body English's black leather upholstered walls and oversized booths.
Guests walk down a long flight of stairs which leads to the main entrance of the club. The first focal point that catches the eye is a larger-than-life million dollar, color-changing crystal chandelier that hangs over the main dance floor, offering a touch of elegance while simultaneously offering just enough lighting to create an intimate ambiance.
Around the perimeter of the upstairs level are the main bar and a number of VIP godfather booths, ideal for elite groups. On the main dance floor, additional VIP booths made of elegant black leather circle the room, giving guests the best view of all the action. Complete with its own DJ booth, bar and waitress staff, the room known as The Parlor, which is adjacent to the main dance floor, also offers an intimate experience for separate parties.
