Nightlife is an incubator for creative visionaries to present the craft they wish to create. Or at least, that’s what it started as. Even before the pandemic started, nightlife had begun to lose its uniqueness and creativity. Nightlife went commercial—with bottle service, cover charges, and exclusive guest lists—the “club scene” started to lose its appeal. The forced pause of the pandemic may lead to a return of socializing akin to the roaring 20’s, with “a new level of fierceness.”
