The focus here is squarely on the music (ranging from techno and electro to deep house and hip hop) and building a scene. It’s hardly a revolutionary concept, but in today’s nightlife world of going for the quick buck, Love stands out from the crowd. The main room is a sparsely furnished box, but the DJ lineup is pretty impressive—the likes of the seminal Chicago house DJ Derrick Carter and Body & Soul’s Joe Claussell have graced the decks. The sound system is stunning.
