MJQ Concourse

The predictably unpredictable nature of MJQ CONCOURSE keeps crowds rolling in. In theory, a “best dance club” has a huge dancefloor, but MJQ has a packed dancefloor, which is much more fun. Clubs don’t often age gracefully — in fact, most are lucky if they make it through the first year. But not MJQ. Between its regularly scheduled programming of Brit pop, hip-hop, reggae and rare grooves, the club manages to throw in weird theme nights like lingerie parties, blood wrestling, homecoming events and cowboys vs. ninjas (we can’t explain if you weren’t there). Plus, it books the hippest-of-the-hip DJs. No matter what the entertainment, though, a night at the Q, is almost always a damn good time. less...

Best Dance Club BOA Award Winner

Django Gypsy Kitchen And Saloon
Imagine hailing a gypsy cab on New York's Lower East Side. Inside, the decorations are Bangladeshi-meets-Brooklyn and the cabby raps to Jay-Z in Bengali. And as the cab gets its swerve on, your body dances involuntarily. The DJANGO GYPSY KITCHEN AND SALOON's bohemian burrow recalls that ride, where disparatemore...
Imagine hailing a gypsy cab on New York's Lower East Side. Inside, the decorations are Bangladeshi-meets-Brooklyn and the cabby raps to Jay-Z in Bengali. And as the cab gets its swerve on, your body dances involuntarily. The DJANGO GYPSY KITCHEN AND SALOON's bohemian burrow recalls that ride, where disparate cultures fuse sweat-drenched momentum into one undeniably funky juggernaut. Whether looking for hip-hop, drum 'n' bass, flamenco, deep house, rare groove, soca, Afro-Cuban jazz or just a medley of people getting dirty and flirty in a post-modern Mediterranean/Latin/North African environment, Django offers a tight space under an even tighter groove. less...

How has a club operating beneath the ground and the radar managed to survive 10 years in a market that sees many clubs fold in 12 months? Don't ask the folks behind MJQ CONCOURSE, they'll never tell.

How has a club operating beneath the ground and the radar managed to survive 10 years in a market that sees many clubs fold in 12 months? Don't ask the folks behind MJQ CONCOURSE, they'll never tell. They never answer the phone, and they barely advertise. Yet word of mouth has the city's hip chomping at the bit to return repeatedly to this retromodern rumpus room where national and international talent with impeccable credentials - the Roots' ?uestlove, Madlib + Peanut Butter Wolf, Jazzanova, to name a few - grace the decks, churning out tunes that whip the intimate sweat lodge into a fever dream.

Vision
A certain L.A. vibe permeates VISION, which may explain its swift rise to popularity shortly after opening this year.

A certain L.A. vibe permeates VISION, which may explain its swift rise to popularity shortly after opening this year. Barely a hint of the former Club Kaya remains in the dramatically renovated space, with a football-field size dance floor and a funky-but-functional front-of-bar lounge. The stark white walls and scarcely concealed lighting make for the perfect showcase for folks to break out some bling. Now that the stakes have been raised for late-night luxury, it'll be interesting to see who tries to top Vision's victories. "1068 Peachtree St., 404-874-4460. www.visionatlanta.com" less...

Behind a nondescript facade lurks a club that is anything but indistinct.

Behind a nondescript facade lurks a club that is anything but indistinct. Despite its numerical name, ELEVEN50 doesn't play it by the numbers, offering an eclectic mix of world-renowned DJs, live music and multimedia extravaganzas. The curvaceo us converted theater, with its art space and Acqua-tic courtyard, has seen its fair share of "see and be scene" buzz, and the consistently high standards set by its music events have instilled loyalty in a discerning faction of Atlantans more interested in sounds than styles.

Located in the little big house on 12th Street, Nomenclature just turned 3 and shows no signs of getting old. Nomenclature gets Best Dance Club not for offering a lot of space, but for offering a lot of options within a space. Some of the city's best house DJs, a strong sound system and ever-changing props contribute to Nomenclature's intimate house-party vibe. And there's always a corner in which to make up and/or make out. less...

Backstreet
Backstreet is Atlanta's members-only club open to everyone, provided you have an open mind. There's no guarantee it will have an open dance floor, though.

Backstreet is Atlanta's members-only club open to everyone, provided you have an open mind. There's no guarantee it will have an open dance floor, though. It may have one of the largest, colorful, gay and straight floors in the city, but on the weekend, especially among the late-night crowd, it's pretty packed. But there's sure to be someone willing to share their space, which is part of the charm. Plus, it's probably the only place where it's acceptable, almost expected, that you enter at night and emerge bewildered in the daylight. less...
