    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

    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).

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!
