John Blair announces new party
It's official, but you already know this nightclub scoop because you heard it here first either on gaysocialites.blog or by way of HX magazine. John Blair is closing his Saturday party at Avalon to move to Splash.
Blair made the announcement on his website featuring a flyer announcing that the Avalon party will end during gay pride on June 23rd.
Another flyer also announces his move to Splash, and a grand opening that will feature DJ Hex Hector on June 30th.
As Blair told gaysocialites.blog exclusively, this move is a safe bet in a dying New York night life scene.
"Nightlife in New York is going through a BIG change. The city is making it very hard for large clubs to stay in business," Blair says.
"We feel Splash is right in the middle... not a big club but not a small one either," John added.
I can't help but notice that none of the Avalon hosts (i.e Brian Brady, Chris Ryan, Amanda Lapore, Logan, Cazwell, etc) are mentioned on the new Splash flyer. We can exclusively report that both Chris Ryan and Logan have joined the staff at the Notorious Saturday party at Rush, just down the street from Avalon - effective immediately.
I also notice that Blair's partners at Avalon, Alan Picus and Mistress Formika Jones aren't mentioned either.
I guess this means Blair will not only face competition from his former DJ Peter Rauhofer over at Stereo, but he'll also likely have to face Formika and Alan where ever they land.
This could be the revival that New York's nightlife needs. A little competition never hurt anyone!
