Why locals love it

Friday nights are 80s nights, Saturdays are new music, Tuesdays are LGBT night (Tuesgays), etc. Basically, it's a really hip dive bar with a dance floor. Drinks are in plastic cups and the atmosphere is young. It's a great place to finish the night. Ending at Barbs is usually followed with a hangover the next morning, but it's usually worth it.

Why you should visit it

It's a bit dark, a bit dirty, a bit loud (you can find areas where you can talk though), the crowd is primarily 20-somethings. It's a great time if you know how to meet people or are going with a group of friends.

Special tip

Get there before midnight to avoid the cover charge. 80s night (Fridays) are the best nights. The first wednesday of the month they do an Emo night.

Dance club with different themes at nights. DJs usually bumping music and a packed dance floor. Connects to Swan Dive with a shared back outdoor area. Swan Dive has live bands. Fun to go back and forth between them depending on mood.

This place can get pretty greasy. But in the best way. Music genres change by the day. Drinks are reasonable. And it's so funny to get trashy and dance here!
