Longtime NYC gay-nightlife guru John Blair, having parted ways with the folks at XL, recently launched a new Saturday-night effort, Viva, at Stage 48. From the look of things, it seems Mr. Blair (along with his party partners Beto Suter, Ric Sena, Alan Picus and Justin Luke) is still able to pack in NYC's alpha gays and those who enjoy dancing with them. While it's unlikely the purveyors of the exciting new breed of sexydowntownparties are quivering in their boots at the thought of an expanding HK megamixer market, it's nice to know that midtown boys won't be lacking for weekend action any time soon.

My friend took me for the first time to VIVA 48 and I couldn't believe this club. It was the GREATEST place I have been to in years. The music, the bartenders, the club and the party goers were just awesome. I had the time of my life. I thought to myself this is what a real nightclub n nightlife is all about .. My thanks to the owners n staff at this exciting n wonderful establishment. I will be partying n supporting this club every Saturday night .
