trying to have some fun

Lexington, KY

#1 May 21, 2010
I'm gonna try to keep this short and to the point.
My wife and I will be staying downtown saturday and would like to go have a few drinks and do some dancing.
We went to the Penguine piano bar last time and had fun.
We are looking for something not real small and has a place to dance, something with really no dress code.
If you can think of a good place downtown please give a name and tell us something about it. If there is somewhere you dont like tell us about it also. If we dont get any replys I guess we will be picking some random place so any reply would be great.
Thank You

Lexington doesn't really have any places for drinks and dancing. There are gay bars around here with some pretty sweet drag shows.

Thank you guys for the reply.

The Penguin Dueling Piano Bar we went to didnt really have a dance floor but did have a large crowd dancing.

So far the only thing i can find on the internet is Main Street Live.

Take a cab to the Blue Moon Saloon... honestly I hate the place and their cover is way too steep, but they have a very big dance floor and it's usually crowded on weekend nights.

Bars/Dance Clubs:

Depends on the type of music you like to dance to and what sort of crowd you like...

Blue Moon... hip hop music. Usually $5 cover. No major dress code.

Saddle Ridge... "rockin' country" and dance music, large dance floor, younger crowd.$5 cover. No overly baggy clothes, no logos.

Cadillac Ranch... live country band with rock/dance music played during breaks. Crowd ranges in age.$5 cover. No major dress code.

Bakers 360... All dance music/hip-hop.$5 cover. No sports attire, no baggy clothes.

The Loft... dance music.$5 cover.

Austin City Saloon... live country band. Dance music (line dancing) played during breaks.$5 cover.

If you're staying in the downtown area Bakers and the Loft are your best bet but they have a bit of a dress code at both places... just the basic, nothing 'gangster' or 'redneck'... jeans and button down for guys, not sure about the gals as long as they're covered.

There's Crossings, Pulse, Soundbar and "The bar complex". To be honest, I googled the crap out of that because I'm not 21 for another couple weeks. I've got some friends that do drag shows. I can talk to them and get back to you about where their favorite places are.

If I'm remembering right, Pulse is one of the ones a friend dances at. Not a hundred percent on that.
It depends

It kinda depends on what you want to dance to. What do you like to dance to?

Moved to Lex recently... searched online a lot to find the best night clubs to go have a drink and dance.. not enuf reviews available online... way too many gay bars in Lex i guess... also i tried The blue moon night club on a friday night.. after paying 5 bucks entry fee i found out that there were totally 5 ppl inside the club..:) but the club was big and looked sophisticated... has a big dance floor too.. i guess that it will be a nice place to go on a halloween or new year eve...

then i heard abt Saddle ridge on boadway.. first hesitated as it sounded like a country music place... but am glad i tried it...have been going there for the last few weekends both friday and saturdays... its pretty decent... a big club...$5 cover... big dance floor.. or if you want to just sit and talk to friends.. there are tables... dj kinda sucks... but the dance floor gets packed when he occassionally plays a good hiphop or line dance song... mostly college crowd... also if any of you gals have a fantasy abt grinding with a midget then this is the place to go coz every time i was there i always find thid cool midget who is rocking the club :) parking is not a problem as they have a big parking lot...$4 for corona.. thats all i drink..

If you're really looking for a good place to dance, I suggest the Bar Complex. Largest dance floor in Lexington I'm pretty sure.

They have 2-3 drag shows a night and the dance floor upstairs. There are other gay bars, as all of them play a wide range and mix of music, but no others have huge dance floors.

Soundbar is more upscale and more of a 28 and older crowd where the bar is more 18 - 24. Very modern. Smallish dance floor but almost always full of people.
yea

The Moon went through a change, has reopened, and is now called Forte. It is on Euclid Avenue, near Kroger. I haven't been but the pictures on Facebook look nice.

Also, the Electric Cowboy opened earlier this spring where Cadillac Ranch used to be. Electric Cowboy is a growing nation chain. It has a country theme going on but I think they play pop and hiphop too. Worth a try.

Anyone know anything about Trust Lounge? It's the new "to be" place but is it more of just a see-and-be-seen place? It's making an effort to bring in national DJ's but don't know what it has in terms of a dance floor.
