We here at Crossfade almost lost our thick-framed glasses and striped shirts when we discovered that Wood Tavern owner Caesar Morales had leased the former Soho Lounge space.
Fond (and somewhat hazy) memories flashed back, as if it were only yesterday that we were getting down to indie-dance tunes on Spider-Pussy Thursdays.
Now we're going Bizerq!
Because Wynwood's newest club is finally opening on December 27. UPDATE: Spokesperson for the club told us that the opening back for the venue has been pushed back. No word yet on an exact date.
"I want to do something fun, but also honor the history of the place," Morales told Crossfade in October.
Unlike Soho Lounge which was made up of several rooms, Bizerq will only use the top-level main floor and maybe even make use of the kitchen for hungry club goers sometime down the road.
A browse through Bizerq's Facebook page reveals there will be ample street parking only 100 feet away. Inside the club, there will be analog lights, and a sound system equipped with bright red, megaphone-like speakers positioned to either side of the DJ booth.
"We are going to party like its 1985!!!" Morales writes. "We decided to keep [the lights] analog. Going with the most basic lights (the sound system is a different story though)."

In terms of music, we can expect hipster parties filled with deep house and indie-dance/rock tunes, reminiscent of the club, Soho Lounge, that helped shape Miami's underground music scene.
"The idea is for people who come to Bizerq is to not take themselves too seriously. Have fun. Don't worry about what others will think."
