The owners of the ’80s-themed Culture Club have graduated to the next decade with Nerveana, a nightclub dedicated to the 1990s. Robert Watman and Tim Ouellette have opened the spot right above their first period piece and decorated the 5,000-square-foot space with a white Ford Bronco (O.J.’s model), Sharon Stone memorabilia and a hip-hop room housing a fridge of 40s. Cocktails include the Ricky Martini and the Billy Ray Citrus. The star attraction, however, is the music: a mix of grunge, boy bands, rap, and one-hit wonders from Right Said Fred (“I’m Too Sexy”), the Spice Girls (“Wannabe”) and other acts you swore you’d successfully forgotten.
