Question: Where can Christians go for fun? Are there safe places where they can go to network, socialize or just hangout and party without compromising their moral values and Christian beliefs?
The answer is yes. The Christ Lounge, intended for young adults ages 21 and older, and The Pit Stop for teens, ages 13 to 18. Both are located at 1642 Fruitvale Ave. in Oakland.
The clubs are organized by two young female East Bay entrepreneurs, Emperess Hall and Majesty Scott. Businesswoman Emperess Hall holds an MBA from Holy Names University and is Minister of Music at Oakland’s Miraculous Foundation Christian Center Church.
She is also a well-known hair stylist in the salon world.
Actress, singer and dancer Majesty Scott recently graduated with highest honors from UC Berkeley where she earned a degree in Theatre and Performing Arts.
She is a principal vocalist at several local churches and other Bay Area venues, has had several significant acting roles and teaches dance at schools and nonprofit organizations in the East Bay.
Hall and Scott believe The Christ Lounge and The Pit Stop provide a positive “nightclub experience” for both “believers and non-believers” without the alcohol, drugs, inappropriate behavior and potential violence.
Both clubs will feature music, dancing, games, good food and nonalcoholic cocktails.
The Christ Lounge, a cross-cultural, intergenerational club, will kick off with a Halloween Masquerade Party, 9 p.m. to midnight, Wednesday, Oct. 31. The admission donation is $20, and tickets can be purchased by calling (510) 261-7729.
The Pit Stop launches 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 27. The $15 admission donation will be collected at the door.
Both parties will have contests for the best female and male Halloween costumes.
For information call (510) 261-7729.
