It's tough to find the entrance to The Room, as the door is in back, through a parking lot, and down some stairs. But on Saturday nights, the effort pays off —it's a little bit like walking into a dark, underground, boogie-down speakeasy. There's no central dance floor; people just groove wherever they happen to park themselves in the jam-packed, oval-shaped bar, coaxed along by the contagious hip hop/R&B bangers (new and old school) courtesy of DJ Wyatt Case. The crowd of hip Westsiders is super congenial, even while they're inadvertently elbowing you in the throes of dance ecstasy.
