The Cabaret South Beach at the National Hotel on Thursday celebrated its second anniversary.
Host Edison Farrow welcomed music fans to the National, where Cabaret South Beach moved in mid-2015 after being evicted from its original location at the World Erotic Art Museum building, following the unexpected death of landlord Naomi Wilzig.
Performers at the party included singer-pianists Victor Valdez and Doug Repetti, and singers Janae Catt, Saskya Sky and Nestor Paz.
Cabaret South Beach, which features singing bartenders and servers, originally opened in late 2013 downstairs at the erotic art museum building at 12th Street near Washington Avenue.
Wilzig, who owned the building and museum, died in April 2015 at age 80. Her adult children evicted Farrow on July 22 after he violated the five-year lease by missing two rent payments totaling $18,288. The nightclub moved to the National in early October.
