On Saturday, March 24th, Lavo Nightclub hosted Madonna’s New York stop on her national MDNA Album Release Party tour.
While Lavo’s notoriously selective door is usually tightest on Fridays, for the release party they were on overdrive. I overheard one doorman tell a leggy lady her two short girlfriends couldn’t come in with her, but I figured on the off-chance Madge might show up it had to be kept exclusive. While Madonna was sadly not in attendance, a well-heeled and liquor plied crowd enjoyed DJ Gomi and DJ Mitch LJ playing her newest single “Give Me All Your Luvin” in addition to classic house music hits throughout the evening.
There were multiple parties happening as the night progressed, with lots of sparkler-topped bottles going off as patrons celebrated. The most interesting part of the night was definitely a tier of go-go dancers atop a rolling “throne” that made its way over to the VIP tables to deliver a number of bottles. Now that’s one crazy thing I can say I had never seen at Lavo before.
