Montgomery Night Life Grows Up!

And I must say it is about time!! It will be fantastic to finally have a place to go when staying overnight in Montgomery and not have to worry about being shot or having your purse stolen (which is what happened to me the last time I was in Montgomery overnight...stolen purse...not shot) and decided to check out the nightlife.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Area clubs are getting sophisticated, dropping hip hop and rap for poetry and comedy.

Hip-hop shows and clubs that made Montgomery a popular stop for artists such as Lil Jon, the Ying Yang Twins, Juvenile and others are being replaced by clubs targeting a more mature, professional crowd.
For many in the Capital City, it's a change that is long overdue.

"It's definitely time," said Paul Davis, a local promoter and owner of Davis Entertainment.

"People are asking for this as they grow from an economic standpoint," Davis said. "The 30 and older crowd are really looking for more mature acts and places where you can dress up and enjoy an atmosphere where you don't have to worry about something happening."

People tired of "something happening" is another major reason for the change.

Deana Graves of Montgomery is one of these people.

"After awhile, you get tired of going out and there being fights and shootings or whatever," she said. "You just want to go out and it be a real laid-back scene."
