Reviews

So last night (Halloween night) I checked out for first of many house events at The Kouch, and I have to say it was cute.

The vibe was very House Music Lounge, enjoyed some tasty signature cocktails which I would suggest the Passion Fruit Mule and listen very chill house music which had me rocking along with every beat. 

All the DJ’s where on local up and coming house Dj’s which were on point. So definitely look out for future events coming to The Kouch

Well, that’s it for me this week, I hope all who go to Palm Springs Pride have a  blast and those staying in San Diego I’ll see you guys in the Crest. I’m Jinx Mirage and that’s the “T.”
