The AquA Lounge
A Place to Be Yourself
Since its inception as a party on the front lawn of Insyx Piranha’s Second Life home at Cockwood Manor on February 22, 2007, The AquA Lounge has maintained a welcoming philosophy of good times and great music in a grand atmosphere that is focused on fun. While the club is located in the heart of the Gay Archipelago, all are welcome and do not have to be gay or lesbian; you simply have to Be Yourself.
As a host at the AquA Lounge myself, I am intimately acquainted with the friendly etiquette that we offer to each of our club-going visitors. I have found that this affable attitude begins with Insyx as the club owner who sets the tone to make each person feel like part of the family. Insyx believes that if “we greet you with a smile (and a sexy body or two), some of the stress of real life may be washed away to help you smile and laugh a little.”

The club inhabits a quarter sim once known as Gayllywood, which was renamed Friendship when the owner Sascha Laval converted it to adult status. Its new name reflects the inviting mind-set of the many entities who share the space. Insyx explains that the Friendship sim is an extension of Flad Dagostino’s Gay Zone Germany which includes Badehaus (a gay bathhouse), ArseNAL club, and is adjacent to Gay Fun World sim.
The residences at AquA extend into Gay Fun World, thanks to Oiswiss DeCuir’s building “that area to flow seamlessly into the AquA Lounge FunPlex and Resorts”, says Insyx. The townhomes have an intimate metropolitan feel in the heart of Friendship and Gay Fun World sims, and are within walking distance of the clubs and a wide array of fabulous shopping. On the opposite side of the AquA Lounge, charming beach houses line the tranquil shores that are part of Gay Zone Germany.

The club is surrounded by a mall brimming with a variety of shops that is anchored by Cockwood Designz, which features clothing created by Insyx and his long-time partner Mountainbear Botanical. Many of Cockwood Designz include sexy separates that look great under the strobe lights in the club, as well as urban chic ensembles for a sophisticated gatherings with your friends. Be on the lookout for new designs that are on the horizon.

One of the most striking aspects of The Aqua Lounge is the architecture and interior design of the club, as well as the consistent style of the sim as a whole. Insyx built the club to reflect his affinity for water and the color blue, and explains that “each incarnation of AquA has had some modern or futuristic aspects to it.” The latest embodiment on the sim is a multiuse structure known as The Liquid Lounge, which has an amazing pool with a floor that rises to become a dance floor for special events. These architectural elements provide a stimulating backdrop for a musical experience that is second to none in Second Life.

One of the keys to a successful club is great music. As such, The Aqua Lounge not only boasts some of the most highly respected DJs and guest DJs on the grid, but also plays host to a phenomenal multi-DJ event known as “DJ World”. While Insyx would enjoy sponsoring events around the clock, he makes up for this infeasibility by generously offering the use of his group Best Buds to DJs and hosts to send notices for events so that members of the AquA Lounge family can experience fun musical events at clubs all over SL. Insyx explains that even “if you can't make a Friday night to hear Vaan or Sasch; or a Tuesday night to hear Kaj, then at least you will get a notice from those folks when they play at a different time someplace else.”
It was Insyx’s enduring love of music that inspired him to become a DJ himself, and provided the initial impetus for the genesis of The AquA Lounge. As a DJ who spins at a myriad of clubs and who has been consistently voted Best DJ by the SL community, Insyx Piranha has had the opportunity to expose the clubber to cutting edge sounds at a variety of venues. Insyx finds that “each club brings a unique experience and is happy that The AquA Lounge is in good company with other cool clubs in SL.”
