Kari’s Bar & Dance


Kari’s Bar & Dance

If you are one of the lucky ones, who finds her club..where the music stops time…
where the air is full of memories and decades have waxed the floorboards smooth
so dark, your eyes need to take their time, while the music is drawing you in and
 if you choose the boleros, your fate is sealed; you might fall in love by the end.

If you feel her in your arms, as you glide across the floor, her heart beating like a bluebird trying to fly out of her chest…
If she molds to your every step, and with every sigh you’re sure you’re about to fall…
You were one of the lucky ones, you charmed the recluse owner into a dance.
You were one of the exceptional ones, who woke her with your lead, woke her with your will and step, woke her with your smile.

Kari’s Bar & Dance is really a citadel where the owner lives imprisoned on the second floor,
locked inside those navy-blue metal walls and factory seams with bars and mesh, above the paintings above the bar.
She peers over her balcony, pondering all the Prince Charmings who failed the test,
who come in her doors with bravado but go out, only hoping for a second chance…
and perhaps they’ll try again sometime; they can remember every poster, every glance,
because the music stops time and while they awake in their sunrise,
They know that it’s always midnight… at Kari’s Bar & Dance.
