The Nines, a new "counterculture" club in Deep Ellum, had its grand opening party Friday night, bringing aerial acts, lizard men and more to Deep Ellum for a rooftop extravaganza. Seriously, this looked like one wild party.

The event, hosted by the world famous Lizard Man and as part of Red Light, kicked off at 9 p.m. and carried on throughout the night with burlesque performances, lasers and hula hoops. Drinks were had, of course, and made for a great time.

Aerial performances included Miss Malicious, Smuldern' Scully and Icky Muffin. Check out the party pics below to see how it looked when The Nines opened its doors.
