It doesn't matter who you are, if you like music and you're ready to dance, Barbarella is the place to go. Featuring some of the best DJ dance parties in town, all types — hipsters, indie punks, bros and gays — are welcome to grab a drink and get sleazy and sweaty on this always-thumping dancefloor. A disco ball and a handful of video screens are all that light up the floor when the party gets going for themed weekday nights (Wednesday Retro, Thursday Soul, and Friday '80s). There are not too many places to sit, so you might as well stay on your feet and keep dancing.

Playlists of the night's prior music lineup are usually available online at their website. Get there before 12:30 a.m. to avoid the $3 cover charge.
