Table service and a sliver of couch? At least $250. Access to gobs of pretty young things? $20 at the door. A nightclub that actually makes you feel like dancing? Priceless. While it's possible to last an entire evening without shaking your thing under the giant disco ball, you'd be missing out. With a full-service bar at either end, an elevated VIP section, and a few dozen bottle-service tables lining the perimeter, the rectangular dance floor monopolizes the space and rightfully so. You'll find going anywhere inside this smallish club nearby impossible without encountering dancers. Furthermore, once you do, you'll have a hard time resisting the impulse to get down to expertly curated classics, R&B and hip-hop (Thursday), or house, indie rock and pop re-mixes (Friday and Saturday). No matter what the night is, hard-charging promoters have lured in an eclectic clientele of hip-hop aficionados in hoodies, vivacious party girls, and disheveled downtown skate rats.
