Best Club DJ

Jerry Szoka (Grid/Orbit)

While Cleveland's nightlife slept for nearly a year, Grid/Orbit co-owner and DJ impresario Jerry Szoka was moving his glitzy gay bar from the Warehouse District to a majestic spot across from the Gold Horse Saloon on St. Clair. In May, Szoka opened the new space, plugging his sound system into a second-floor, state-of-the-art perch in Grid's back-to-the-future dance partner, Orbit. Szoka then reacquainted Cleveland's gay glitterati with his expansive library of pulsating house and electronic music. If Szoka's spinning the tunes, the party's only just begun.
