What better to do in the city with the world greatest nightlife than to go out and dance the night away?

While many of the bars also have dance floors, this page is devoted to the places where poeple go out to dance. Many of the locals also have live acts, but these tend to be much earlier in the evening. In any event, the majority of these disco charge entry, though the amount may be negotiable, depending on the size and make-up of the crowd your entering with. Also, don't forget to check the section on gay clubs.
