Oasis Lounge Closing Night

Jan 19

Oasis Lounge, Osaka

In June 2004, a little club in Miyakojima, Osaka was born. Oasis Lounge opened its doors with one goal in mind, that being to provide a space that catered to the clubber who is interested in quality underground dance music, with a vibe that makes that person feel at home the first time they walk in the door. The focus has always been to maintain a house party vibe where friends party with friends and even if you know no one when you walk in the room, you will feel just as at home as the person who has been many times before. This vibe, along with Kansai's best DJs spinning cutting-edge dance music has been the key to Oasis Lounge's longevity considering its out-of-the-way location in Miyakojima. However, after three-plus years, countless parties and a lot of drinks, owner/producer Dan Elliot has decided that the time is right to close the doors for now in order to focus on other upcoming projects. So if you have been to Oasis before or want to experience an Oasis party for the first time come on out on Saturday, January 19th for the final night at Oasis Lounge to say goodbye to one of Osaka's signature clubs.
