KoKo Cocktails is a gold mine of a bar: amazing happy hour specials, fresh-squeezed greyhounds, and old black-and-white movies projected against the wall. It deserves its own post (which it will get soon, I promise), but I need to tell you right now about Black Gold: It’s the cutest dance party party possibly ever. Also, it is FREE.
Hosted by Senator Soul, the event features DJs Alison, Melissa, and Johnny Landmine spinning tunes from the golden age of Motown. We’re talkin’ the smooth sounds of 1960s R&B and soul, perfect for getting your swerve on. Pop on your pinstriped suits and babydoll dresses, get your ass over to KoKo’s, and order a Motown Smash before it might have to close. If you’re hungry afterward, complete the retro night across the street at Mel’s.Black Gold at KoKo Cocktails
