Playing house

Vanish opens its doors for the house-music crowd

Faces Night Club—gone. The Blonde Martini—yeah, that closed, too. It seems like the underground space at 835 Fifth Ave., Downtown, is either cursed or, at the very least, a challenging location.

However, a couple of weeks ago, a new owner and management team stepped up to give the basement club another go. Vanish, says Justice Fuller, the spot’s new VIP host, is dark and loud with lots of lasers and fog.
“It’s an all-house-music club,” Fuller says. “Picture a dark, black-and-purple club with a big dance floor…. We’ve had DJs like Stonerokk from L.A., DJ Schoeny and DJ Kurch from San Diego. We don’t have any residencies yet, but we’re working on it.”

Misha Osinovskiy, one of the founders of sandiegohousemusic.com, says the all-house-all-the-time formula just might work.

“It’s a good angle to take,” Osinovskiy says. “They do have some competition, but, hey, if they want to push house music, it’s awesome. It’s great to see that the owner is willing to take a chance, separate themselves from the mainstream hip-hop and top-40 crowd and niche themselves down and say, ‘You know what, this is the music we play.’”
