Best Place to Dance

The Ivy Room

We have to go with the Ivy Room on this one, for Thursday’s Soundboutique, only because this dive bar is the last place you’d expect to see the Cabbage Patch in full effect. Sometimes it’s very squished, but everyone is dancing and drinking, so who cares. DJs Jacob Tillman and Sean Sullivan trade off, and each week brings special-guest-star DJs for variety, and the sound system is high-quality. Plus, you’re only a few blocks down from some serious hooker action in case you can’t score nothin’ with your wits or your dance moves.
