Dance Clubs

Philadelphia can dance. It’s just a simple fact. Ever since Chubby showed us how to Twist and Dick Clark got the kids grooving on Bandstand, the people of Philadelphia have loved to show off their moves.

Nowadays, when the sun goes down, dance floors across town heat up at sleek Old City night spots, off-the-radar bars and vibrant, upstairs halls.

Meanwhile, the city’s DJs draw on Philadelphia’s rich soul traditions to fuel late-night dance parties. They pack the clubs each week, spinning house, trip-hop and any other genre you can dream up.

So grab a cocktail and your friends, and then hit the dance floor in Philadelphia.
