Come on out and join us as we host our Lesbian Lounge at the Nelson, Pre Pride Celebration at RIWA's Lesbian Lounge featuring the hilarious Poppy Champlin. Poppy will be performing two 30 minutes sets and DJ Karen will be getting everyone up on the dance floor. Sure to be a fun-filled event. As with all RIWA events, RIWA members gain free admittance. Guests are welcome for a fee of $15 for this special event. Become a RIWA member for an annual fee of $35. Membership applications are available at www.riwa.net. Hope to see you there. 


There is a full cash bar, dance floor, seating, parking, private entrance and facilities, and an all-new menu. Food can be ordered at the bar and served in our private space. The Nelson is located in the Lang's Bowlarama complex, space is completely private so you will not be entering through the bowling alley.

The entrance to the Lesbian Lounge will be to the left of the main entrance doors. We are excited and feel the space will be perfect for gathering with friends, do a little dancing, have a bite to eat and sit and chat between dances. Looking forward to a great season and looking forward to seeing you there.

Membership forms are available online at FORM.

Membership is $35 annually and allows free entrance to all 6 of our 2019 dances.
