Hi NYC Bees,
So I’m planning my next girls night out, and need suggestions on a good bar/club where we can dance! I usually just stick to bars in the West Village, where there isn’t any dancing. We are thinking like 80’s, TOP 40’s type music…nothing too swanky and/or pricey. We would NOT want to pay a cover more than $20…

I was all excited but your $20 cover threw all of my ideas out of the window. Good luck!

R bar downtown is super fun. There’s no cover, but I would get there early-ish if you don’t want to wait in line because it gets reeeallly crowded on the weekend. They have poles in the back that you can dance on too 🙂 Also, Naked Lunch in Soho is a fun place–it’s pretty small and I don’t know if I would call it a dancing place, but my friends and I usually do dance when we go there 🙂 Again, no cover.

Joshua Tree is a bar in Murray Hill that plays 80s music
Canal Room has an 80s cover band every saturday night and it’s a giant dance party – we ended the night there for my friend’s bachelorette and it was really fun!

I second Joshua Tree. I have the most fun there every time I go! They play 80s music videos on a huge screen and its always crowded with people singing along. There is no cover there either

@OhBeeHive84: Not necessarily 80s, but Maria’s Crisis Cafe, nearish Washington Square Park, is an AMAZING underground dive bar. They have great, cheap drinks, no cover, and live piano music Broadway/Show-Tune sing-a-longs. FUN! Also, there is a mostly gay clientel, so no worries about getting hit on by gross bar guys.

* Joshue Tree
* Bar 515
* VanDiemens (I had my bday party there and they were AWESOME. E-mail them and see what kind of deal they can set up for you)
Lower East Side
* Fat Baby (I love love this place, it gets crowded but if you get earlier you can secure a great spot)
* Brass Monkey
* Any of the standards clubs probably won’t make a bachelorette party pay a cover. Just go to the front with your girls and tell the bouncer the occasion – they’ll probably let you right in.I recommend Hotel Gansvoort, Marquee, Grennhouse, etc.
If you need more ideas and want to find deals I highly recommend Shecky’s Party Aid. Fill out a request and they’ll email you a bunch of options.

I totally agree with R Bar. My girlfriends took me there to celebrate my engagement. So fun on the stripper poles and it’s not skanky. I promise!

@JrzyGurl: Fat Baby! I’ve been there, had a lot of fun too, thanks for reminding me.
@hilsy85: @LizzieDee: R bar sounds awesome!! I love me some stripper poles lol

@OhBeeHive84: No problem. Bottle service at Fat Baby is actually pretty cheap (compared to other places lol) and if you do bottle service you’ll get a table upstairs. I really love doing that because a bouncer protects randoms from going up there – meaning you have sooo much space to dance. And you’re right by the DJ, so you can request all the Gaga/Britney/X-tina you want haha.

The greenhouse is a great place for dancing. Not top 40s tho. More house ish type music. If you go on Sunday night its gay night. No men will be creepin on you. Otherwise awesome 80s prom is at Webster hall Saturdays. Looks a little lame though. Lots of young kids, must be like 18 and up. good luck
