When my M.O. is to dance and dance hard, Scarlet is where I go. This dark-lit, one-room, high-energy club is a great place to let loose like you’re filming your own personal music video about rival dance groups. As a white queer woman, my dance moves are subpar at best, but when I’m at Scarlet, I swear I transform into one of Lizzo’s backup dancers (the low lighting plus alcohol makes it a great place to try out some new moves). Check out their delicious specialty cocktails, like their Scarlet margarita and their espresso martini, to refresh after sweating nine buckets out on the dance floor. This is also a great spot for dancing birthday parties and dancing pride parties, or just a wild dancing Friday night out. Did I mention this place is great for dancing?
