All White, Black-Out

Black lights, white attire and a fired-up dance floor are what made the "End of Semester White Party" at Sharab Lounge a hit. The night also celebrated customer appreciation with free drinks until 11 pm.

Doors opened at 9 pm. to provide a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere before the party upstairs started. DJ Matt Mobley “MOB” kept a smooth, eclectic vibe to entertain a wide age range of people that were enjoying hookah and free drinks. Once the upstairs opened, a flock of white rushed up to hear the sizzling mixes of DJ BiG T that included Latin hits, reggaeton, top 40 and hip hop.

At the beginning of the night about 150 people were downstairs, but when it came time to dance, there was almost barely enough room to move. Sharab just had their capacity raised from 490 people to 790 by the City of Gainesville on Wednesday. With this raise, promoters of Fuego Entertainment were expecting about 400 to 600 people overall, and they reached that range. And while the drinks were free, a majority of people were really there for the DJs, who kept everyone going into the night.
