Alibi’s pre-Pride Space Glam Dance Party in photos

This year the Alibi threw its first ever pre-Pride party at swanky Nob Hill cigar bar, Imbibe. The establishment, with its spacy neon lights, mod white couches, brilliant rooftop patio and permission to smoke freely, was the perfect place to stage a gay, glitter glam-themed party.

And what a party it was. Dancing commenced at 8 p.m. but really got going after the drag queens lit up the crowd with some killer moves and sassy banter. Party people were reluctantly vacated at the allocated state-sanctioned time of 2 a.m. If you missed the party, these photos may help you feel like you were there ... or wish you were.
