Tonight is the grand opening with a whole slew of DJ's. Saturday sees The Bounce with Emynd & Bo Bliz and The Barbary MySpace is now updated with the next week of shows.
The downstairs Barbary will be for monthly events, and Redden challenges "DJs and promoters to come up with ways to make their parties better than they've been at any other venue." Upstairs, set to open next year, will be a "dive bar" venue of a different name that will have booths, food and a jukebox.
"In my ideal world, the club would be a worker-owned syndicate where profit would go to support the abolition of the prison system and fund radical social movements," Danielle Redden says.
For now, though, brother and sister will settle for making the Barbary a dance-and-hang space "where people feel comfortable having meaningful social interactions, where people can experience joy," Danielle says.
