Vintage rock to top 40, indie to 80s new wave, the Independent Bar hits that sweet spot between dance club and dive bar, a place where patrons are welcome to dress to impress or roll in in Chucks and ripped jeans. Seriously man, no one's looking, so relax. Multiple bars make getting drinks a non-issue and a friendly atmosphere makes for a relaxing, no-stress night of dancing and people-watching; patrons might be yuppies or rockers, goths or indie hipsters, it really is that eclectic. In fact, it's even 18+. Special nights like "Indie(cent) Thursdays," with $2.50 PBR tall boys and whiskey well specials all night, or Wednesday night "Mac & Cheese" (DJ Mac spins the cheesiest music mix) are ever-evolving, but always indicative of the venue's convivial vibe.
Best for Dance Clubs Because: The Independent places "10Best" in multiple categories because it hits that sweet spot where you just want to dance and don't care who's watching.
Best for Under 21 Clubs Because: The Independent has a great scene without a shred of "see and be seen"-ishness. Everyone feels welcome.
