That’s how AZCentral describes Lux. Lux: A nightclub for morning people Megan Finnerty azcentral.com Jun. 6, 2007 Although it’s 7:30 a.m. and the sun is bright outside the front windows, Phoenix’s Lux Coffeebar feels like a nightclub for morning people. As the hipsterly styled locals queue for coffees, raspberry brioches and golden scones, a mix of DJs man a light table at the back of the room, playing a dance-heavy mix of edgy wakeup music. “We really try to play music that’s inspiring, in that it makes you want to dance, or it makes you take notice,” said DJ Luis Solis. “We’re not playing atmosphere music.” Solis spins with partner Sean Watson and the two make up the DJ duo Ill Pescados, known for hosting Sundays at HT Lounge. DJ Brazilia, aka Claudia Bona most notably from AZ 88, joins them, spinning a mix of electronica, soul and hip-hop and name dropping groups as divergent as Ladytron, Stevie Wonder and Digable Planets. And the mix of people is just as eclectic. The shop is crowded with freshly coiffed breakfasters, smelling pleasantly of just-applied perfume and cologne, grooving to the loud music. It’s easy to imagine them as potential dates. It’s easy to imagine you’ve already gone out, and now you’re indulging in the morning-after casual coffee ritual. And it makes this little corner of Phoenix feel just as sexy as any Scottsdale lounge. “I think it’s great anytime you can see a DJ spinning vinyl these days and it fits with Lux because it’s very personal to have a DJ right there and introducing the music everyone,” said Lux regular Doug Brown, 35, of Phoenix. To come in and hear something like that, it’s a great way to start the day.” Click here to read the article and see the photos.
