Skull's Rainbow Room
This iconic Printer’s Alley bar has everything: tassel-twirling dancers trying out their best burlesque hip pops, live jazz music every night of the week, and a brunch Bloody Mary served in a goblet the size of a toddler’s head (that also comes with jalapeño cheese poppers). Those are only some of the reasons why Skull’s has been around since 1948—another reason being how many legendary musicians (like Etta James, Johnny Cash, and Elvis) have played here before. There’s no bad time to head to Skull’s, but Friday and Saturdays are when they put on a burlesque showcase that still brings all the locals out.
