A nightclub in Baltimore, Maryland is making headlines for being the first of its kind in creating an inclusive environment for folks with cognitive disabilities. Top 40 hits, strobe lights sensitive for those with epilepsy, and a mini spa are just some of the features of Club 1111, where folks can go solo, with friends, partners, caregiver or family members.

“Whatever you come looking for, you can find it here,” says Janice Jackson, 59, of Northeast Baltimore, who uses a wheelchair after being paralyzed in 1984 when she was hit by a car. “We see a lot of relationships blossom. Some fail. Love is always in the air here at Club 1111.
