Keeping Downtown dancing into the wee hours, Blu is one of Indy’s hottest dance clubs, thanks, in no small part, to the great lineup of talent they’ve got providing the grooves every weekend. Check out the legendary DJ Lockstar each Friday for mashups, remixes, Top 40 and electro house. Saturday nights it’s DJ Slater Hogan doing the R&B, Dance, and Top 40 thing. And then there’s Sunday Funday with where not only is the music good, there’s also no cover.
Indy's branch of the chain serves the down-home, All-American food that Cadillac Ranch is known for and comes complete with a mechanical bull. The mood is always upbeat rock ‘n roll, so you’ll likely hear pop and rock covers if you’re there for live music, but they showcase DJs at times as well.
Casba isn’t a place you’ll just stumble across, which could make you feel just a little bit hipper when you do happen to find it. A basement club below Usual Suspects in the heart of Broad Ripple, the reggae mix every Sunday and a regular schedule of events. Drink specials are the cherry on top of this dance club.
A Latin dance club near Lafayette Square Mall, Chispas features the best in Spanish music. Bring your dancings shoes - you'll need them!
Club Live brings an authentic Latin American vibe to Indy; for proof, just go to their Facebook page and you’ll see all of the posts are in Spanish. The club hosts salsa nights, hip hop dance parties and live musicians with Hispanic backgrounds. If you’re searching for a Latin-flavored dance club, head on over to Indy’s west side and stop by.
Venus is the Roman goddess of love, so that should give you a pretty fair idea of what happens inside Club Venus. Watch and enjoy as the strip club’s “exotic dancers” emulate Aphrodite.
The Continental Dance Club provides a place for everyone in Indy to learn to ballroom dance. Every Sunday at 5:30 p..m.. there’s a lesson (one session for beginners and a simultaneous one for more advanced dancers), and then everyone comes together from 7:15 p.m. till 10 p.m. and dances to the live music that’s playing.
If anyone asked you to picture the typical bar, D.J.’s Lounge is probably what you’d think of. With a pool table, darts and a jukebox, this place is about as classic as you can get. There is a DJ (as in disc jockey) as well, which helps to keep the place current.
El Qbo, formerly known as Liquid, is the north side’s version of the Latin-American hotspot. The dance club’s music is loud and the mood is feisty. They’re only open late at night, so be sure to come in with lots of energy.
Over the course of three decades, Greg's has gone from being almost literally a hole-in-the-wall to being one of the largest and best-known gay clubs in the city. Oddly enough, it also wins the "best place for line dancing" each year in our Best of Indy poll. And who can blame readers? Every Monday, Greg's offers the same great line dancing as the designated "country" bars, but here it's little less dingy and, well, a little less country, surrounded by men who are well, a little less dingy and a little less country. Don't be intimidated by the show-offs: all levels of boot scooting going on here. Other nights and other dance floors within the club offer all the house, techno and Top 40 you can imagine. Another plus, Greg's is smoke-free.
Hyde opened as an expansion of Blu Lounge. Hyde offers a large VIP section, 360 degree marble bar and a great dancefloor. This top of the line club is great place to dance the night away!
The married couple who owns the restaurant met at DePauw University as a frat boy bartender and sorority girl waitress, and they’ve kept the party going by opening their own place, named after themselves, of course. The menu is pretty typical of a bar — wings, nachos, etc. — but they also have wraps and salads if you’re looking to eat a little healthier. On Sundays, since they’re only open during Colts home games, you know everyone there will be all about the football.
No matter what else is said about the casino, you can’t say that they don’t offer variety. The many ways to gamble include blackjack, poker, roulette, craps and slots. It’s located next to the Indiana Downs racetrack, so you can bet on the Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds and Quarter Horses as well. The casino also offers multiple restaurants, DJs and live music.
