Family-owned-and-operated since 1931, this intimate retro-stylish performance venue still manages to be hip, with its wide variety of fresh musical acts (I saw Beck here recently), while maintaining its old dance-hall feel. Lavish art deco details, cabaret seating, and lush curtains transport patrons to a bygone era, while the large dance floor in front of the stage plays host to the city’s young revelers and those who want to relive their glory days. Grab tickets in advance at the box office, which is open Monday through Friday (10am–4pm).
