After Fujiya and Miyagi the boyfriend and I headed over to The Transfer at Church and Market for the opening night of Bender, brought to you by the same crew that produces Lucky Pierre at The Stud. We got there around 1AM, so there wasn't much time left for drinks, dancing, and partying, but it was the perfect nightcap for our big Friday night out.
When we arrived the bar was packed, with a busy dance floor and crazy impromptu go-go dancing by both boys and girls up on the benches as DJ6 laid out synth-driven electro tracks. In the hour we had left we danced, drank, took pix in the photo booth, and eventually were shooed out with the rest of the exhausted partiers when the lights came up. It was a very fun scene, and while not as jam-packed with scenesters as the Honey Sound System or Frisco Disco parties at the same location, it was a great place to pop in, have some drinks, dance, and round out a most excellent evening that reminded me of why I got into electronic music and clubbing in the first place.
Bender is every second Friday at The Transfer, and is recommended by the Jaded Gay DJ as a great no-cover way to spend a Friday evening. I only wish they'd get rid of that damned pool table in the middle of what would otherwise be great dance space.
