Club Blu opened its doors in 2004, but its location is not new to the GLTG community as it is the former home to Jaded Marys and The Worlds End. Blu sits in the heart of the Church Street Gay district. This club is a scorcher and offers an incredible sound system and plenty of dancing including urban, and hip-hop to satisfy its ever growing African American crowd.

Blue Genes 37203Blue Genes sits right next door to Blu but dont be surprised when you find out that the two are miles apart in style and atmosphere. Blue Genes, which opened in 2006, is a pub style setting and offers the standard pool table and dartboards as well as a small stage suited for acoustical sets and karaoke.
