The new Cream nightclub features murals by local artist Frenchie Bauce.

Nestled between two Beacon Hill antique shops, the new Cream nightclub now offers chilled libations, breezy terrace vibes and upbeat dance music. Chef-led late night dining will be the next addition to this lineup of entertainment.

The nightclub, located at 527 W. Hildebrand Ave., held a soft opening last weekend in the space that once housed drag show heaven Babios. On opening weekend, DJs Mess Muerte and Falco ran on a dance floor lit by twinkling lights and decorated with murals by local artist Frenchie Bauce.

While the new venue only offers beer, wine and cocktails at the moment, a representative told the Running that its grand opening in mid-July will also mark the launch of a gourmet menu created by chef Adrian Olivares.

Olivares has worked with culinary luminary SA Stefan Bowers of Rebelle, Playland and the St. Anthony Hotel. Olivares also has years of experience in Colorado and East Coast dining, according to the club.

The first iteration of Cream’s menu will include a pork belly pupusa, chicken wings tossed in Valentina buffalo sauce, and a burger topped with chili cheese.

While Cream welcomes anyone willing to dance, the once-date drag shows at Babios are unlikely to reappear.
