When you just need to dance, you go to Barbarella. To be clear: Barbarella isn’t a music venue. It’s the place you go to comfortably bump and grind in a worry-free environment. It stays open a little after most other bars close - so slam that last call down and stumble over to embarrass yourself on the dance floor before you call it a night.
