Akbar Fridays

Friday June 28 2013 22:00

This North African-themed Silver Lake haunt is known as an indie/hipster gay bar with straight-friendly vibes, and its dance floor is a rollicking extension of the fun, fluid mix. On a typical Friday, DJs spin everything from indie rock to techno to '80s pop, inviting school-days bop-around-type dancing that's accessible even to newbs. Don't be surprised if you spot a dude in a bow tie busting out disco moves next to a straight couple slow dancing and a group of girlfriends gettin' jiggy in pleather shorts. Everyone's welcome, and no one's shy.
