    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.

    Great dive bar/venue (reminds me of the Bottleneck in Lawrence, KS. Cool decor and they even have pinball games! Skip the line at the main bar by going to the downstairs bar by the pool tables! Read more

    Check-in to at least 5 RCRD LBL-approved venues to enter to win an iPad 2! Hint: this is one of them. Head here for deets & more importantly, to discover our favorite SXSW '11 music

    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.

    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

    New paint job. Fun place. Cool bartenders. Good industrial goth scene on wed/sat and awesome 80's on sunday. $2 wells make it even better.

    Great venue with friendly bartenders and cheap drinks. The ultimate bonus? Original cabinet games and mega Jenga on the patio!

    Elysium is bound to be crowded during SXSW with its two bars and great dance floor. Find out what's going on here at!

    Do512 · January 20, 2012

    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!
