Whether you’re planning a girls’ night and everyone wants to dance, or your college roommate is in town and you want to pretend that you’re still cool, MJQ is where you should go. It’s one of the best places to dance in the city and while it’s dark, underground, and you might not have cell service, it’s better that no drunk photos get sent anyway. There are two different rooms - one for pop and one for hip hop - but this place still fill up fast, so get here on the earlier side (and make sure to bring cash for cover) to avoid the line.
