Once a month, an elite group of gender-bending, burlesque-dancing and occasionally high-flying performers takes the stage at Oberon for TraniWreck, an attitude-heavy cabaret variety show starring Host and MC Heywood Wakefield, Johnny Blazes, Madge of Honor, Katya and others.
This Thursday, TraniWreck--or, this month only, "TraniWrock"--features a rare special performance by indie rock band Come. The show also boasts poetry from The Haiku King, aerial performance from Rachel Stewart, and much more.
DJ Chris Ewen leads an "as late as they'll let us stay" dance party after the stage show.
This Sunday, April 3rd from 2 pm to Midnight, get your dance on to benefit Japan disaster relief at Beats For Japan, hosted by Public Works.
The DJ lineup includes some big names in local house music, like Mark Farina, Claude Vonstroke, Miguel Migs, Fred Everything, David Harness, Julius Papp, Olivier Desmet, New Mondo, Chris Lum & others. A $10 minimum donation is required for entry, but greater contributions are much appreciated.
Proceeds from the nearly all-day dance party will go directly an as-yet-still-undetermined local Aid Organization. Beats For Japan is still doing its research, in order to pick the most worthy recipient.
This Saturday, April 2nd, Grammy-award winning producer and DJ David Guetta performs at the Borgata Event Center in Atlantic City. General admission tickets have already sold out, but premium tickets and table service options are still available. Call 609-317-7155 for more information, but be prepared to shell out some major bucks – premium tickets start at $145 a pop, and table service starts at $2000 for a group of eight.
The 30,000 square foot venue is located at the Borgata, one of Atlantic City’s hottest and most glamorous nightlife spots, and the home of popular dance club mur.mur, where Chris Willis – a frequent collaborator of Guetta’s – will also be performing on April 2nd.
The Rockhouse Bar & Nightclub has a daiquiri bar and one of the most inexpensive bottle service on the Strip. It opens at 9 p.m. nightly with live DJs and dancing in Las Vegas’ only bird cage. Rockhouse is located on Las Vegas Blvd. in front of Imperial Palace, directly across from Caesars Palace, in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. Its ambience crosses between that of a local dive-bar experience with the glamour of Sin City's nightlife scene.
By day, it's the spot to grab an ice-cold daiquiri while people-watching on the Strip-view patio, play in a few rounds of beer pong, or catch sporting events live on 28-television screens throughout the bar. The patio features a daiquiri bar and beer tub with bikini-clad cocktail waitresses serving everything from draft beer to 80-ounce souvenir guitars filled with your sin of choice.
By night, dazzling bartenders swing from tires suspended from the ceiling, dance on the bars, and pour easy-on-the-wallet cocktails. Their music is a blend of upbeat rock, hip-hop, and dance, giving partygoers the ultimate nightlife experience – without the "VIP" attitude. With a casual dress code and bottle service that won't break the bank, Rockhouse is the perfect place for locals and tourists alike.
Their Weekly Lineup of Events is:
This Saturday, April 2nd, Tommy McFLY, Brendan Kownacki and Chris Brown are bringing the nightlife scene out into open daylight, with a special brunch event to benefit the Washington Humane Society and its Fashion for Paws Runway Show.
The free event runs from 2-6 pm on the 96-seat patio at Cities restaurant at 919 19th Street, and you can register here to enjoy an afternoon of drinks, dancing and waffles—all to support a fantastic cause. A portion of all food and drink purchases goes to WHS’ Fashion for Paws, to support animal welfare.
Guests can also participate in a silent auction, with prizes including excursions and VIP tickets for other exclusive events.
The epitome of 1920s Prohibition glamour, the original Cotton Club was a second home to some of the biggest booze bootleggers in the business. The club regularly featured famed jazz musicians like Ella Fitzgerald, Bilie Holiday, Fletcher Anderson, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington, as well as other guests who never failed to get the crowd swingin'.
On Saturday April 16th, Bootlegger 21 Vodka brings the Cotton Club back - but relocates itself in a four-story SoHo townhouse. Within the party, expect to find '20s-style cocktails, long cigarette-holders, hand-rolled cigars, along with blackjack and poker games upstairs. Oh, and we can't forget the music. Michael Arnella and His Dreamland Orchestra headline, while Queen Esther, Jesse Gelber, Gin Minsky, Roddy Caravella, and the Cotton Club Revue also perform. If you're really feeling festive, you can most definitely dress the part: ladies, a little black dress with a set of pearls; gents, a freshly ironed suit with a trilby hat.
In the midst of the growing number of nighttime hotspots in midtown Manhattan comes Hash Fifty Five, a hookah lounge on the second floor of Fifty Five. The stairwell leading from the restaurant space downstairs to the second-floor lounge acts as a portal to what feels like a desert escape. The sleek lines of the modern white couches are complimented by sheer, flowing curtains dividing each seating section - giving you the option of privacy or party. The earthy outdoor terrace gives the illusion of looking out over a foresty backyard (which, we know, is a rarity in this city). Interior designer Ray Trosa's (9 Restaurant) signature combination of modern and classical elements surely shine through here, giving the space a relaxed but trendy vibe.
Even if you're not able to be in New Orleans for the big day, you can still break out the beads and cause a raucous. It might not be the same as the real thing, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars that offer Southern charm and hospitality in good ol' NYC. Unless you're one of the lucky ones that either a) took today off or b) called in "sick" and are already knee-deep in hurricanes and jumbalaya, grab your crowd after work/class/etc. and put your party pants on. Mardi Gras (which means Fat Tuesday) is meant for eating and debauchery before Lent begins, so get ready - we've rounded up a few of NYC's most authentic Nawlins parties sure to fatten and rowdy up its patrons.
A typical Monday night may consist of cooking dinner and plopping down on the couch to watch the beginning primetime shows for the week. After all, the weekend’s just ended and there is not much to do. Local DJ’s Richie Panic, Key&Kite and Q Bar are changing this with a night they like to call "Wanted".
Thrown weekly, Wanted puts a different spin on the typical Castro night out. By incorporating self-made remixes, on-the-fly mixing and the latest in indie-dance music, Wanted has become one of the most popular nights in San Francisco, regardless of the day of the week.

Dusk, located on the second floor of Caesar’s, was designed and co-owned by the late DJ AM. The 10,000 square-foot multi-tiered entertainment complex is noteworthy for its unique layout—the design is a series of concentric ovals with two DJ booths flanking elevated stages at the center, two full bars encircling the outer most ring, and private booths surrounding the dance floor. Dark hues of blue, purple, and gold create an aquatic vibe and the amazing light system flashing to the beat of the music gives dancers the sense that they’re grooving beneath an undulating ocean.
