Best Dance Party

Something Tight at Happy Ending
302 Broome St., nr. Forsyth St. 212-334-9676
Something Tight D.J.’s Timmy D and Telfar (who play a mix of Italo disco, nineties pop hits, and random gems) never advertise, which is why it has remained a raucous crowd of downtown fashion kids, artists, porn stars, sexy nerds, and Eastern Europeans. Upstairs you’ll find a straighter, but no less raucous, crowd. It takes place on the first, third (and fifth) Thursdays of every month, from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., but the best time to be there is at 1 a.m., when everyone gets a freebie. Recent treats: McDonald’s cheeseburgers, shots of Britney’s “Purple Drank,” and Slim ’n’ Tipsies (vodka and Slim-Fast). Gross, but brilliant.
