With miles of red velvet and satin, an enormous stage for live performances and even two strip-club–style poles, it could be the set for Moulin Rouge. Parties include Sunday night’s house-music Asseteria and a weekly homage to Cabaret. On other nights, college students and business types are coaxed onto the dance floor by DJs spinning mainstream house and R&B. The drink list is pure Candy Land: NY Cheesecake, Almond Joy, Cherry Bomb. Hope those servers in showgirl headgear know how to administer an insulin shot.
