Temple Nightclubs in San Francisco and Denver were venues created for artists, by artists. With futuristic designs and venues that are meant to enhance the experience for both artists and guests, Temple performances are a little out of this world. Over the weekend, Temple in San Francisco and Temple in Denver both threw down for the weekend with some amazing superstar headliners. CELEB takes a look at what went down and why nightlife lovers should pencil these venues in to their next nightlife rotation.
Lil Jon Takes the Stage in SF
Each Temple boasts something unique for guests so you won’t feel like the experience is copy and pasted if you go from San Francisco to Denver. In San Francisco, Temple’s website explains, “On the street level lies the main nightclub where guests will find a custom DJ booth, thundering Void sound system, and 50,000 addressable, floor-to-ceiling LED bulbs. Surrounding the dance floor are seven VIP booths, which offer a high-energy experience for guests who wish to be at the center of the action.
At the forefront of the dance floor is the main stage, which has been designed specifically to showcase our world-renowned artists, DJs, and performers. The main room is complete with three box suites and four mezzanine tables that hover above the main dance floor, and are capable of accommodating larger group parties.”
And then there’s LVL 55. For guests who love the underground feeling and don’t want to be pressed in among the main level attendees, LVL 55 offers 15 VIP tables and a custom-made DJ booth. With a futuristic feel and an intimate, fully-immersive nightclub aura, LVL 55 is the perfect place to get away from the crowds but enjoy the performance.
This weekend, rapper and producer Lil Jon took the stage Saturday to perform hits like “Get Low,” “Yeah,” “Salt Shaker” and more. Then Green Velvet took the stage on Sunday to spin up techno and house favorites. Sunday was a costumes-welcome Monster Mash Bash for guests to enjoy and closed the weekend out with some spooky tunes and electric vibes.
Denver Sees Shaq Slam-Dunk Event
Denver’s Temple is no less amazing than The Bay’s. The Mile High city knows how to wow guests and Temple Denver is no exception. Temple Denver’s website shares, “Upon entering, you will be teleported into a higher dimension of nightlife. The 3 story main room cathedral elicits a sense of excitement and grandeur. A nightclub atmosphere of unparalleled cohesiveness, all theatrical lighting and production elements were conceptualized and designed for the entire room to act as a single organism pulsating to the rhythm of a single heartbeat.
In the sub level lies the main dancefloor where guests will find 50,000 addressable, floor-to-ceiling LED bulbs and a thundering Funktion One sound system designed to provide the ultimate listening experience of a pulsating system that is not overbearing to conversations or harming to the audible senses. Surrounding the dance floor are 4 VIP booths and a two tiered stadium seating platform comprising 8 VIP sections which offer a high-energy experience for guests who wish to be in the center of the action. At the forefront of the dance floor is the main stage, which has been designed specifically to showcase Temple’s world-renowned artists, DJs, and performers.”
On the mezzanine level, 6 mezzanine tables cater to guests and above on the third level, 5 skybox tables give Mile High and a Half views of the dance floor.
Over the weekend, legendary Shaquille O’Neal spun a DJ set for guests. Since O’Neal started experimenting with the world of DJing, he’s mastered the art of delighting dance lovers with a masterful mix of Trap, EDM, and hip-hop music. “Notorious” Malaa then took the stage Saturday to produce world-class dance mixes for guests.
If you feel like you’ve never heard of Temple before it may be because they’re outside the normal hub of nightclubs people make on the rounds in cities like Los Angeles, Miami, and Las Vegas. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t world class; Temple combines state-of-the-art technology, head-turning headliners, and hospitality know-how to make each night out at one of the venues like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
Created by the genius of Paul Hemming, each venue has captured the unique essence of its home city, melded it with futuristic technology and feel, and drawn in some of the best performers in the world. Hemming founded Zen Compound, a portfolio of fully-sustainable successful business with two buildings, in San Francisco and Denver. The buildings house Temple Nightclub, ECO-SYSTM, and Mirus Art Gallery. Zen Compound looks to be something new and an example for business models to follow. With the success of Temple Nightclubs and the appeal of sustainable business, Zen may be at the forefront of what hospitality businesses look like in the next decade. Per a statement, Hemming says, “There is a certain flow that one feels when going from floor to floor at Zen Compound. Though each business is vastly different, the fundamentals behind each are the same: responsibility in all forms, to each other and to our planet; constant evolution; and a drive to create something meaningful.”
Nightlife may not seem like the most obvious place to start changing the world and entering a sustainable business model, but Hemming has made it happen. With the success of the Halloween weekend events at both Temple location, it’s clear that Zen is playing in the hospitality big leagues and we’ll be hearing more from them soon.
