It’s crazy to think that it was 2007 when Faded Industry hosted the first ever White Party at Privilege Ultra Lounge. If you do not remember Privilege Ultra Lounge it would be because you are too young and never got to experience this one-of-a-kind venue. When Privilege originally arrived in Pittsburgh as Prive, the venue changed the nightlife scene completely.
Privilege Ultra Lounge proved that Pittsburgh had a nightlife crowd who desired more than the typical cheap drinks and top 40 music DJs. Privilege introduced an upscale Miami feel with a strong focus on VIP Bottle Service and great DJs from all over the world. Even DJ AM performed at Privilege Ultra Lounge.
This is why Privilege Ultra Lounge was initially chosen as the venue to host the Pittsburgh White Party. Bringing this upscale event to the city of Pittsburgh required a venue worth hosting the event and in 2007, that venue was obviously Privilege Ultra Lounge.
Unfortunately as time passes, so do the nightlife trends of the city. No matter how unique and great your venue may be, eventually the crowd changes and new competition arises. After a few successful years, Privilege Ultra Lounge had to close it’s doors and move on to the next project. That next project was Zen Social Club. Zen Social Club was another great Pittsburgh venue with plenty of stories as well. For now, enjoy a brief look at the 2007 and 2008 White Party events at Privilege Ultra Lounge!
