At first sight, Go-Go doesn’t look too groovy. The dark walls, the house/hip-hop sounds, and VIP areas—one of which is plopped smack in the center of the main room—don’t exactly scream free love. But the classic photo of Twiggy plastered on the wall, the billboard-sized screen awash in psychedelic images, and the bikini-clad go-go dancers who occasionally make appearances in a caged off platform above the room, nod to 1960s esthetics without making the club feel like another Culture Club or Polly Esther’s. The crowd is even more timeless: loosened-tie steam-blowers busy seeking females to chat up before the latter hurries off to the dance floor. Everyone else is packed three or four deep at one of the two bars trying to get a stiff drink. (Take note: The back bar with the attractive back lighting is usually less crowded.)
