BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – Club Marcella will celebrate the grand opening of its new location on Michigan Avenue on Friday.
The venue closed its Theater District location in March as it announced the move. A VIP event will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., with a grand public opening from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
The new location is across from the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino at 106 Michigan Ave. It would be 9,720 square feet, with two dance floors, two bars, two stages and four private luxury booths. Three dance areas – floors and a seasonal outdoor patio – will each offer their own musical genre.
A rotation of six to seven DJs are scheduled to perform every Friday and Saturday.
Keke Valasquez-Lord will perform and the cast of Life’s a Drag will perform a special midnight show. DJs Devious, Adam Barrett and Kyle Carson will provide live music. DJ Charles Masters, who performed on Club Marcella’s opening night in 1995, will also make an appearance. Guests must be 18 or older to attend.
Carlos Guerrero of Pure Lights Entertainment in Miami designed the venue’s lighting system. Club owner Joe “Marcella” Guagliardo owned clubs in Miami for a decade before returning home to western New York.
