“DANCE - The Republic is a posh and cavernous dance club where you might find the electronica meets R&B act FKA Twigs one night, a house DJ another and Rebirth Brass and Bonerama the night after that. The place is pretty, with crystal chandeliers and two floors for dancing and watching the action. There are multiple bars, an efficient and gracious staff and and enthusiastic and well dressed crowd. The crowd tends to be a little younger, but that doesn't stop everybody else from having a great time here as well. If you're lucky you can catch Bounce night with Big Freedia - twerking will commence.”

Café
“DANCE - From traveling business types to hard-core college students, the Howlin' Wolf draws a diverse crowd that tends to skew on the younger side. Located near the Convention Center, this live music club attracts a number of touring bands and the music menu ranges from rock to blues to Past line-ups have included the Black Crowes and the Reverend Horton Heat. The club holds about 500 people with an upstairs balcony area as well as pool tables in the back. The ambiance is loud, the crowd energetic, and the prices for drinks and cover are affordable. The bathrooms, however, are on the rough side so be prepared.”
