Equal parts disco, Vegas revue, and Cirque du Soleil, this coliseum-size dance club holds 3,000 revelers in vertiginous multilevel seating with an eerie resemblance to a Victorian theater. The festivities kick off at 10 p.m. with fire-juggling waiters and celebrity impersonators, followed by live music and dancing (on the stage, on the bar…) by a mostly young crowd mixed with a baby boomer contingent. The big draw? Not the trapeze act, but rather the four-hour show with themes like Kabuki and reality television. The $50 cover includes an open bar.
Insider Tip: For a good show and breathing space, go on Monday or Tuesday night—and avoid spring break.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
