If going back to the 1970s is too rich for your Millennial blood and your idea of nostalgia is Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, and Britney Spears, The Rec Room is your sweet spot for drinking and dancing under a disco ball. The basement setting means things can get a little sweaty, but the Mason jarred and canned drinks are icy, not terribly overpriced for River North and there's plenty of cushy seating to take a breather. Riffing on the memories of spending time in your bestie's basement hang out, Friday and Saturday beginning at midnight, you're invited to "raid the fridge," a complimentary rotating selection of eats like fried chicken, pizza and frozen candy bars. Enter through Henry's and get ready to dance until you're singing, "Bye, Bye, Bye" NSYNC-ers.
- Dance Clubs: "Expect to wait, but there are drinks and board games to play while you do and once in, you'll be glad the crowd size is controlled."
- Best for Dance Clubs Because: The weekend dance party takes place in what feels like your high school pal's basement, with more books and better adult beverages.
