Super Pimp (real name: Mike Toth) has been the master of ceremonies on West Sixth Street for over a decade. (Do read our fabulous 2012 cover story on Cleveland's famous face — and suit — here.)
So it was only natural that Super Pimp venture out on his own: "I am pumped to announce my own club, The Mixx," he says. "I knew it was time to have a place with my own flair."
Starting with a Sundays-only format, The Mixx is taking up residency at the Country Lakes Party Center in Broadview Heights. Why not a location on West Sixth Street? The answer is simple to Super Pimp. "I wanted a getaway from the usual bar scene," he says. "Most of the time the music is so loud you can't hear yourself talk. You can't meet anybody. Its a drunken orgy. The Mixx will have an excitement and energy to the place, but not so much you will be drowned out by it."
Beyond the vibe, the facility spoke to Super Pimp. "The grounds of this place are incredible." The split plan format will feature a main room with live music and rotating DJ's like DJ XCEL. The second room he calls a "quiet room."
"This area will have a martini bar that will allow guests to have a nice place to sit and have a conversation with live local entertainment," he says. "We will have the ultimate Sunday Funday. Utilizing the volleyball courts, corn hole boards, the large outdoor covered area, and the huge in-ground swimming pool, Super Pimp is picturing a Vegas style hotel pool party.
And don't expect to see your basic burgers and dogs grilling outside either. Super Pimp will rotate quality food vendors such as sushi from Shinto, cue' from Famous Dave's, and numerous guest food tucks. "It will be the Super Pimp flair you expect. The best food and drink around," he says.
He has also tapped longtime friend and super bartender Robbie Flair to craft his cocktail menu. For the inside martini bar ,called Suits, Flair has designed six signature cocktails all named after Toth's dynamic suits. "When customers sit down they will see a picture of me in a suit that corresponds with a martini," he says.
Robbie Flair will also be a frequent guest bartender at The Mixx as well.
The Mixx has a grand opening scheduled for Sunday, May 4, and the club plans on opening every Sunday around 1 - 2 p.m. during the summer months. And to say Super Pimp is pumped is an understatement — "This is my signature here. It will allow me to go out there and be me. People are really gonna have a good good time."
