This DJ-owned space is a basement dance club and live music venue. You won’t find super huge crowds—capacity maxes out at 500—but you will find an excellent sound system and a 1,200 square foot dance floor that’s actually cork-cushioned. The space features limited bar seating and advance ticket sales for shows, which are listed on the website. Bonus for laid-back types who prefer comfy kicks: There’s no official dress code.
