DNA Lounge

There is often a line and a cover, but that usually means you're in for a great party. A varying crowd dances the night away on the huge floor with a second-level terrace looking down on the action, as well as a smaller upstairs dance floor. Tunes range from 1970s disco and 1980s funfare to 1990s hip-hop and Goth, depending on the theme of the night. All are welcome at DNA Lounge. Behind the bar, quiet rooms allow for a smaller party feel. Once a month they throw 'Bootie': a night of mash-ups and booze.
