    80s night at Elysium every Sunday is always fun, with a great mixed and diverse crowd.

    We really hope you're not wearing open-toed shoes. We also really hope you don't use the restroom. Most of all, we really hope you romp until your heart's content.

    The only way we've figured out how to beat the heat in this AC-free venue is to keep the cold beverages flowing. Drink up and get down!

    Dance! Dance! Dance! They have goth night on Saturday, 80’s music on Sunday, and off-the-beaten-path performances throughout the week. We love the size, space, and staff at this popular venue.

    If you want to get away from the prim & proper take a stroll into this character-filled dance club. The drinks are strong & cheap and the clientele will not disappoint.

    Great music, awesome DJs, great service, and the best damn dance club there is! Many nights have no cover and loads of amazing dark music. <3
