The ME originally billed it as a restaurant, but once the folks lingering from daytime Nikki Beach found its basement location it's been all disco lights and Jay-Z remixes. The Passion Club is located in the underbelly of perennial party palace ME Resort in a hodgepodge scene of slurring hotel guests in short-shorts and gussied-up locals that consider it prime social stomping ground for the under-40 professional singles.
Passion Club is arranged within a proper dining room and series of lounges with outdoor courtyard with white opium-style daybeds illuminated by gas fire pit that looks quite similar to poolside Nikki Beach. While the dining room is open throughout the week, Thursday is when the DJs open up in the lounge with dance floor scene that rage till 4am and sometime even late enough to watch staff set-up breakfast service in the dining room.
Be prepared to sweat, the club isnâ€™t well air conditioned meaning that things get especially sticky doing the bump-and-grind on the dance floor during warmer summer months.
While guests of the hotel get in for free, cover ranges upwards of $15 with bottle service starting at $200 with premium selection of tequila and vodka.
