Raiford’s to open on Thursday nights

This afternoon I confirmed a rumor that I’ve been hearing for weeks. If you plan to go to the Thursday night Peabody rooftop parties and were wondering where to party afterward this season, you have a new option, and it’s a good one.

Paula & Raiford’s Disco will be open. They plan to open at 9 PM on Thursdays and stay open until around 1 AM or so. Ladies will get in free until 11, and will pay $5 cover thereafter; men will pay $7 cover.

Raiford’s is a short walk from the Peabody. Just walk a block and a half north on Second Street, and the club will be on the right next to Elliott’s.

Should be a fun after-rooftop option. More upbeat than just sitting at a bar, but not the frenzy of Club Shadows where the Nuh-Uh Girl and her cougar dance party go on weekends. I’ll miss the first rooftop party tomorrow night due to friends in town, but I’ll probably make it to the next one… and possibly Raiford’s afterward.
