As the final seconds of 2009 counted down on Body English’s final night, local clubbers shed a genuine tear. Three years later, people still talk about the awesomeness of the Hard Rock club, whether it be their love for the venue’s provocative design and vibe or the opportunity to hear great DJs during Godskitchen before the current electronic dance music proliferation. Although initial rumors cast the space as an after-hours foil to Vanity’s prime-time offerings, Body rested in peace, save for a handful of live music concerts and even a haunted house. Till now: Body English returns Dec. 28. So, it’s a good thing that $250,000 chandelier is still in place. The winner of the centerpiece on closing night must have decided it wouldn’t do a thing for his living room.
