In Second Life, as well as real life, there are many clubs that reflect the feel of certain eras. In the virtual world, you can open up your own club in less than a day, but to get the proper feel of the venue, research has to be done. Music has to be carefully selected, atmosphere has to be perfect in order to correctly represent the *true feeling*, and staff has to entice the guests with flare & mystery. The legendary Cotton Club in Harlem, NY managed to do all of that, with help from the likes of Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, Cab Calloway, Sammy Davis Jr, and many more.

There are two Cotton Clubs in Second Life, at the time of this blog; the well known Cruiz’s Cotton Club, and the location that I visited, the quiet & quaint Cotton Club on the Balandin sim. If jazz music and warm company is your speed, this place is for you. It’s great for spending a bit of time alone while you relax, or taking a loved one to dance the night away to your favorite soulful tunes.
In this blog, I am wearing the Charlize dress, and the Falling Leaf fingernail HUD (both from ~*Moolala*~), that are available at the current Twe12ve event. Each are 99L. The Charlize dress fits all of the Belleza mesh bodies, as well as both of the Slink mesh bodies, and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya. I am wearing the Belleza-Freya mesh body, and I did have to adjust the alpha layers a little bit, for my lower back, but that was only because my shape is more curvy than most. You may not need to do any adjusting at all, but I do recommend using panties underneath the dress (especially if your AO bends over a lot). The fingernail HUD has Maitreya and Omega appliers. Both of the HUDs come with 10 colors, and the textures from both coordinate with each other, helping you to create the perfect look.
