“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.”
