|New gay club Kaos to open in Macon|

Macon nightlife will get a new bar when Kaos has a soft opening on Oct. 22 and then its official grand opening over Halloween.
Matt Neumann, publisher of David magazine and Southern Voice newspaper, is helping a friend open the new gay bar in the city, located about an hour and a half south of Atlanta. He says his position with the LGBT publications has nothing to do with his work to open Kaos.
“A friend asked me to help him open a gay bar in two weeks and so I’m helping him,” he says. He said the owner declined to be named publicly until after it officially opens.
The bar is currently a straight bar but will become an LGBT bar later this month, meaning the liquor license and zoning codes are already in order, he says. Neumann says he is helping to line up some of Atlanta’s top acts to perform at the club.
The bar is undergoing some renovations, Neumann adds. The bar will be open Thursdays through Sundays with go-go boys on Thursdays, the Kaos Kabaret on Fridays, DJs spinning on Saturdays for dance parties and on Sundays a brunch and tea parties. Unlike Atlanta, bars can remain open until 3 a.m. on Sundays, he says.
“It has a show bar and a dance floor and it’s a fun space,” he says.
“It has easy freeway access [off I-75 South] on Riverside Drive and we’re hoping to get people from middle Georgia, south Georgia and Atlanta.”
On the Kaos Facebook page, the bar is making a call to hire bartenders, show girls, go-go boys and DJs.
The Facebook page is also advertising its Kaos Kabaret event for Oct. 22 starting at 9 p.m. featuring Lauren LaMasters, Natasha Diaz Xtravangaza and hostesses Adeena and Makaila Andrews.
The website for Kaos is not yet up, Neumann said on Tuesday, but should be up by this weekend at www.kaosmacon.com.
You can find the club on Facebook under Kaos Macon.
