New Nightclub Opens On Wilton Drive

Hidden in plain sight, there’s a good chance you’ve walked right by Wilton Manors’ newest nightclub and not even noticed. That’s okay. You weren’t supposed to notice.

No Manors took a low-key approach to its opening last weekend. Tucked away in the corner between a liquor store and the pizza shop in the Shoppes of Wilton Manors (Alibi Plaza), it’s easy to miss. Or, it was easy to miss before opening its doors and quickly cementing itself into South Florida’s LGBTQ party scene.

“The first night, there must have been 1,000 people,” General Manager Erol Zeren said.

By the looks of the front door, you’ll expect a small, neighborhood bar inside. But looks can be deceiving. The front has the main bar and lots of seating and a cool NYC vibe.

Just off the lounge area is the second, smaller bar. The room has a total Florida feel, as the wallpaper features giant pink flamingos.

The lounge furniture can be easily moved to accommodate entertainment. It’s the performance lineup that has people buzzing, and creating rumors ranging from piano music to adult performances.

“They’re probably all true, and they’re all false,” Entertainment Director Ryan James joked. “We are really trying to create a unique entertainment experience here.”

That new idea that you feel so ready to implement might be a bit premature as indicated by the inspired but inexperienced reversed Page of Swords. Rushing in could deplete your resources and energy, leaving you out in the cold limbo of the reversed Five of Swords. Additionally, the reversed Six of Swords indicates a less than favorable reception of your ideas by those with the power to turn your dreams into reality. A little sharpening of your plan is needed, seeking assistance from someone with the experience to help you solidify its details and package it in a way that will ensure you will get the backing you need.
