Seventh High, one of our town’s premiere boutique nightspots, gave a fab bash on its second anniversary, an awesome disco happening entitled “Discofied.”

Starting the night’s fantastic swing on a roll were hot acts such as Glitters, Addlib, Nyoy Volante, Centier and Club Mwah, which particularly shocked Seventh High to intensity nine.

For extras, palanggas, wow prizes were awarded to a number of ladies who were the night’s “Glamour Goddesses.” Ruffa Gutierrez was the night’s Disco Denizen, capturing the spirit of glamour.

The night of fun, dancing, flirting and boozing had everyone on a seventh high, palanggas, more so when gorgeous Denise Laurel, and Anthony and David Semerad asked the Seventh High management to join them onstage for a glittery toast. The champagne parade marched from the LED walkway all the way to the club.

But it didn’t end there, as funky retro mixes of DJ Mars Miranda with Seventh High’s own DJs Buzz and Ron blasted through the speakers to outer space.
