The new EDM venue is called YOLO Nightclub
In mid-2020, it was announced that legendary music venue Slim’s would be replaced by a new nightclub called YOLO. The appropriateness of using the dated acronym for “you only live once,” especially during a global pandemic, foreshadowed a recent string of questionable social media posts which have drawn outrage online.
The controversy stems from several different social media posts. In one dated April 28, which has since been deleted but is being reposted by other users and debated in the comments on the club’s Facebook page, the nightclub posted the following text on a black background: “Speak English, Kiss French, Dress Italian, Spend Arab, Party Yolo.” The text was a custom iteration on a meme posted elsewhere online. It was captioned with the phrase “Do it right.”
