    It doesn't matter what night of the week it is, there will be beats blasted out by the city's best DJs. It's always loud and always sweaty! And the lasers and disco ball will be lighting up the night. Read more

    The Thursday night soul music party is one of the best parties I've ever been to...and I travel a lot! If you like that kind of old music, this is your jam!!

    Get there before midnight or you'll have to pay a cover. If you think you'll want to go after midnight, go early and get your hand stamped to avoid the cover when you come back!

    Barbarella is a great bar in the heart of downtown Austin. On weekends they usually have a DJ and a theme for each day of the week (i.e. Footloose Fridays '80s music).

    The best night to go is Tuesday for TuesGayz. The music is awesome. The dance floor is packed. But beware, you will be a hot sweaty mess by the end of the night.

    This place is the best place to dance in Austin. Nobody ever has anything bad to say about Barbs! Don't miss 80's Night on Fridays for anything. It's balls out crazy.

    If you ever decide to stop by, make sure it's on a Tuesday! TuesGayz is a guaranteed good time. Tracks are curated by (DJ) the Glitoris--he never fails to play poppish classics and awesome remixes.

    "Tuezgays" and Saturdays are my favorite times to go. This place has epic dance floor space and its perfect for ending the night. I've had so many great times here!

    Perfect place to get freaky on the dance floor. You won't be kicked out at 2am either if you want to keep dancing - just have to give up your booze!

    The BEST dancing spot in Austin! Great video bar with multiple themed nights - Tuezgayz, Emo Night, Mid-2000's Music, etc.

    Great drinks at even better prices, lots of themed nights (Tuesgays etc) and a fantastic atmosphere. No cover before 11ish.

    Tons of people, but it's a huge venue so it still wasn't crowded. Three working bars, so there wasn't much of a wait for a drink. Be sure to dance your heart out while you're here!

    80's night @ Barbarella's is pretty much the only place I want to be on a Friday night! Put on your red shoes and dance the blues! <3 <3 <3

    The spacious back area compensates for the delightfully tight dance floor. You can get your groove on then step outside for a breather. Read more

    Entire downstairs reeks of vomit. The dance floor downstairs is always too crowded, too. Skip 80s night here (Fridays) and just go to Elysium on Sunday!

    If you're drunk and falling over, leave immediately to avoid being embarrassed in front of the entire bar. Unless you're hot, then you'll just be helped.

    If you are looking for some fresh air after dancing your face off, head out back to the bar on the patio.
