One part H.R. Geiger-esque gallery (the Alien designer’s art graced the walls at the opening), one part understated DJ bar and one part hype, Lit is smoking hot. Offering local artists a place to play, the lounge goes against mainstream ideals and is definitely not your average nightspot. The main attraction is the alternative glam crowd with the occasional B artists, actors and indie film stars. The gallery, frequently baring grim, nightmarish images, has limited hours, but can be seen anytime through its locked glass doors. Downstairs, in the dungeon, notable-named DJs do their thing. Created as an experimental punk music venue, this lounge is perfect for those who are tired of the typical chic bars.
