Slideshow: Black Betty's Debut at Twelve Lounge

We spoke about Twelve Lounge earlier this week, but now for some visual proof this place has scrubbed itself clean of Hed Kandi's douchiness. Black Betty is the lounge's newest Tuesday night party, and with a little help from the Overthrow gang, this might be reason enough to go out on a weeknight. As always, our photographer Lex Hernandez skipped sleeping in order to bring us a glimpse into this new South Beach venue.
