A former Brooklyn boy, hip-hop D.J. Tito Ramirez crossed the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in 2005 to found this dance club in Great Kills. Today, Illusions ranks as one of Staten Island’s hottest nightclubs. Physically, it’s a fairly standard joint: blue-hued lighting, a 15-by-25-foot dance floor, and a bar running the length of the room. (The bejeweled curtains framing the mirrors lend a corny charm.) There’s also a small area with red velvet couches for sipping your inexpensive highball. Saturday’s the big night for grinding to hip-hop, Top 40, and yesteryear hits; Friday nights, live doo-wop acts attract an older crowd; Thursdays offer live freestyle rap. If none of these musical genres are for you, head over on Sunday for karaoke fueled by $2 Jolly Rancher shots.
