review: baby loves disco

A couple months ago, I wrote this post about Baby Loves Disco, which I randomly discovered while surfing online and avoiding dishes. The idea behind BLD is simple. First, take a nightclub and make it kid-friendly. Throw in balloons, bubble machines, hoola hoops and a dj spinning classic tunes that don't involve learning your ABC's. Oh, and a "chill out" room if your kiddie (or you) need a rest. Did I mention adult beverages? Started in 1995 by Heather Murphy Monteith and Andy Blackman, the BLD phenomenon has spread around the globe, not to mention the US.

Baby Loves Disco in Dubai, anyone?

What can I say, when I saw they were planning a disco party on May 3rd at Le Poisson Rouge, I knew we HAD to try it out (if nothing else, I wanted to report about it on this blog). We arrived in front of the club to wait in a small line. Velvet rope included. And no, I haven't done that in about 5 years, let alone with a baby on my hip. After "checking" our stroller, we headed downstairs, the sounds of Stevie Wonder meeting us along the way.

First off, at the ripe ol' age of 6 months, I knew Baby S would be too young (though she did enjoy staring at the bright lights of the disco ball). That being said, Husband and I certainly got our money's worth out of the deal ($15/adult... our "non-walker" got in free). We met up with friends and their respective cuties, and had a good time just checking the place out. It was hilarious watching kids strutting (or attempting to strut) their stuff on the dance floor. And the music was fun.

Your child's age is really key, though, if you are interested in going to a Baby Loves Disco event in the future. Their website says the age range is 6 months to 7 years old. I really think, based on my experience, that 3-5 year olds would get the most out of it. I saw one little boy that looked to be about 7 and he just looked, well, old. On top of which, he tore up the dance contest, leaving a group of weaving toddlers in his wake.

A couple notes: if there is another one at this location during the summer, I hope they make sure the AC is running. It was hot down there. And frankly, a little loud. I realize this admission makes ME officially old, but there you have it.

Baby Loves Disco - been there, done that. And I would go again... in a few years, when Baby S and Husband can really shake it up on the dance floor.
