Cobalt was the old Doug's Body Shop in Ferndale. They re-modeled Doug's into Cobalt. Cobalt was a fun place and I enjoyed it while it lasted. The bar was partly owned by Tom G from Backstreet. Tom had sold Backstreet and still held the liquor license to Backstreet. He got into a fight with his new owners of Backstreet and closed it down which resulted in a lawsuit which Tom lost. The Oakland County Sheriff's dept did undercover surveillance of the place (Cobalt) and found some drugs being sold (Wow, really? drugs in a nightclub?) and because one of the bartenders had his ass showing they forced it to close. It is now called Posh and is a straight club. People complain that there are no good large dance nightclubs in the suburbs, but if anyone does open one, the police harass the shit out of them.
