Romancing Bogart’s – Living History at Frank’s - “Seersha Heart

I made the mistake of writing that Bogart’s had closed in Ballrooms : Where the Romance Lives last week.  My error was in using an old landmark and not following up.  I confess that when I thought Bogart’s had gone, I felt very sad and not on my game.  Imagine my surprise, my embarrassment and my sheer delight at learning Bogart’s was alive and well.  Only shifted a bit on the grid to Franks Place region. It is all too easy to assume that a club is “gone” since many clubs do come and go in SL.  Bogart’s is part of something much bigger, an SL Icon, Frank’s. Caught with my pants down on this one, I sincerely apologize for writing that Bogart’s had closed.  As you may read here, Frank’s is a place that grows, it doesn’t close.

When I first moved to SL a few years ago, I loved to dress up in gowns.  Most of the formal clubs I visited where couples oriented at that time. I wanted to have a place go where I would feel comfortable visiting as a single person.  Of course, I wanted to wear a gown! At this point in my SL life, I would wear a gown everywhere and I mean everywhere! Searching through destinations I found the club Bogart’s and the name instantly caught my eye.  Changing from one gown to another, I set off to see what Bogart’s club looked like and the crowd that hung out there for the dancing. The landing point is a short stroll from the entrance and there are upscale shops along the walk.  I crossed the small park and looked up at the marquee “BOGART’S”. Going inside I was greeted by a hostess very stylishly. She called me by my surname and pointed out the upcoming schedule and the chilled champagne. Walking deeper into the club the room opens, the ceiling several meters above my head.  The stage is large and colorful. I would later learn that the appearance periodically changes. The room is inviting in rich reds and golds throughout.
I have had the pleasure of meeting people at Bogart’s.  Both men and women appear well dressed and ready to dance providing an opportunity to meet new people.  I’ve attended some very enjoyable events over the years. In 2016 the Sl Enquirer featured Bogarts as one of the top five SL date locations sharing…
“This SL long running classic has shopping and a park on your walk to the club.  Dress is cocktail to formal.  You land down the block from the club and walk up to the dramatic facade of the building.  The marquee proudly proclaims, “Romance is in the Air” and it most certainly is in Bogarts.  Walking inside the first set of doors, scheduled activities are listed to your left by the elevator.  Going further inside to the main room it has the feeling of an elegant theatre with high ceilings and a stage with ornate golden trim at one side.

The color scheme is rich reds and golds throughout.  You will be greeted as “Mr.” or “Ms.” by what I feel are the best hosts and hostesses in SL.  They make you feel welcome and have that breezy air about that may be best described as elegant fun.  The DJs are equally top notch.  Requests are played quickly and as a dedication or a request.  Imagine requesting a romantic Norah Jones song and dancing with your date.”
Amazingly Bogart’s has not strayed from this level of style and service.  I remember fondly when chatting Huckleberry Hax about various dating locations in SL.  We spoke of a couple of different stops and then Huck gave me a quote that truly fits; “Good old Bogart’s”

I could not have phrased it better or more succinctly.  Maybe you will sit down at one of the cozy tables off the dance floor and get to know someone new.  I have met many people at Bogart’s and shared a dance or two with some new-found friends. Bogart’s is not a ‘hookup’ joint, though I suspect there are hookups [it IS SL], it is a place you return to many times.  It is the place I fell in love with the melodic sound of Nora Jones as well as older rat pack jazz favorites. Bogart’s is part of the most popular jazz complexes in SL Frank’s.

Frank’s began as a jazz club for with a formal dress code.  These days Frank’s has expanded to five regions and become an entire entertainment complex.  The formal dance and jazz club has bloomed into more clubs and shopping.  Elegant and welcoming Bogart’s is a top place to take a date.
Fly me to the moon; Let me play among the stars; Let me see what spring is like; On a-Jupiter and Mars…”

Best Formal attire for those Classy Occasions in Second Life…. By Tea Couturier.


Sometimes it can be hard to find that perfect outfit when you have an event to go to or you and your partner are heading out for a romantic night out.

Well never fear, here is a list of some lovely formal wear and where to shop for them.

SHEY - Janelle Extraordinary Gown
I love this dress. It comes with a HUD which can change the texture of the dress so that you can keep the same design but have it in different 16 colors. It is an elegant mesh gown which will look lovely for any event. There is a demo available to purchase to try before you buy it. It costs only 599L also so this is a definitely one for the closet.

Spotlight on ROMANCE COUTURE; A New Elegant and Classy Collection in Second Life©- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


The Fashion Industry in Second Life is on a constant high. If it wasn’t for designers dressing us up, we’d either be left to our own devices of making our own clothes (which can prove disastrous), or walking around with all our business half hanging out like a bunch of cave people. The fact is clothing helps define our styles and personalities. What you wear can tell a lot about you. For example, if you walk around Second Life in scantily clad attire, one might assume you were a streetwalker making lindens up and down that pole. If you are dressed in business attire, one may think you’re a big ballah', high rollin' in the Lindens.  Meet fashion somewhere in the middle and you create a style just your own. It can be an ensemble created by a mixture of designers or you found that one who really knows what you like. Whatever the case may be when it comes to fashion, work it because you own it and remember there is always room for something new.

Speaking of New, Romance Couture is a new store on the Second Life scene with high fashion designed by Eleseren Brianna. You may or may not have heard of her, it all depends if you have been to Inworldz. *Gasp* yes, I mentioned another virtual world but I am no traitor in the least. I’m celebrating the fact that such great talent and eye for design has decided to come back and bring her collection with her to Second Life. I had the pleasure of interviewing Eles and learning more about her and her collection. Be sure to welcome her back to Second Life by stopping by her store and even picking up an item or two. If you are anything like me and into shiny new things, you will leave with a handful of bags and a smile.
