This sounds like a good idea to me. I just hope there's only a select number of topics in that section-the worst thing that could happen would be for it to take life away from the original forum.

Whereas, just changing the status of an existing area to hidden would mean the same traffic flow in each section as it is currently.

Adding a moderator approval feature on this as well would also mean that newbies would pretty much be forced to post about music, and the increase in music posts would encourage the rest of the forum to engage in more music discussion as well because there are more opinions to agree/disagree with.
I'd agree with most of this. The only thing is that it might be a little bit unfair to remove the lounge completely from members who have, say, 200 posts but might not have as high a profile on the site as a lot of people and might not get accepted.

Overall I like the idea of it, it would be like a VIP lounge where people can chill and discuss more personal things away from lurkers and everyone else. There's one other thing I'm worried about and that is that the secret forum might create a bit of an elite attitude or gang-like mentality among some members and this could create a further division between established members and newcomers. But overall I'd like to see this implemented and to see how it works out.

I think only people with over 9,000 posts should be allowed to view it.

I'd never be lonely with Urban and Jackhammer around to keep me company.
