All Access: Orchid
Luna lovers rejoice. Fans of the funky retro dance club know that the lines at this hot spot can become extensive due its undeniable popularity. But owner Nick Cerulli has come up with a solution – create a new space for people to boogie the night away.
“On the weekends, there were lots of lines at Luna,” says Cerulli who has owned the Royal Oak club (then known as Groove Lounge) for the last 12 years. So he bought 9, a nightclub that catered to the gay community on the corner of Nine Mile and Woodward, stripped it down to the bare walls and opened Orchid, a 5,600 square-foot dance club.
