Nightlife: Dance Clubs

Every now and then, we all get the urge to let loose on a dance floor. Whether you’re looking to bust a move from the ‘90s or shake what your momma gave you, Raleigh has a dance floor where you’ll fit right in.
If you want to dance the night away in a sultry club with plush lounge areas and modern flair, you’ll find plenty in downtown Raleigh. Mirage Night Club and Sushi Lounge is a great place to grab a late dinner and then allow your sake bombs to warm you up to the dance floor as the night progresses. Neighboring Still Life Nightclub and Ultra Lounge has a high-tech light show that pumps to the DJ’s mixes while you dance the night away.
When you want the option to party like a rock star on the floor and still have someplace to mingle and escape the noise, try Solas Restaurant Lounge and Roof. Solas offers three levels of varying ambiance, starting with a quiet and romantic bottom floor for dining, a high-energy dance vibe on the second, and a relaxed, upscale lounge on the rooftop.
If you really just want to throw down and dance like no one’s watching, then try the casual and judgment-free bars of downtown. The Black Flower welcomes all to pull up a bar stool, but their dance floor is always alive. The Ugly Monkey doesn’t limit you to the dance floor, with stairs that lead directly up on top of the bar. And at City Limits Saloon, you can alternate your dance floor visits with bull rides on their friendly mechanical bull.
