The Baltic Room, a posh Seattle nightclub, caters to a hip and eclectic mix of dance clubbers and drinkers getting their groove on under the lights on the ever-packed dance floor. The real draw, and subsequently why the Baltic Room is wall to wall nearly every night, are the sick DJs manning the decks dropping some serious beats spanning all tunage funky, hip and blazing from all over the world which also creates another great draw at Seattle's Baltic Room: the multi-ethnic parade of hotties, pickup artists, metros, ravers, freaks, straights and gays. The party gets slammin' at the Baltic Room and you've got to check their theme nights that always draw a fun, energetic cavalcade of frenetic dancers showing their dance club chops.

Cool and laid back, Barca is a hip Seattle nightclub that is heavily steeped in Euro-style modern elegance while retaining an unpretentious attitude. The space from inside and out is simply stunning and the design touches at Barca almost make you feel as though you should be paying a lot more, but their drinks—even their good selection of wine and ports—are all very reasonable. Also, this hip Seattle lounge sports nearly 20 beers on tap, from domestic favorites to import staples, and Barca has the largest collection of premium and specialty vodkas that we have ever seen. All of this posh sophistication is presided over by resident DJs spinning down tempo chill tunes for the low key Seattle crowds.

Club Medusa, a posh LA-styled dance club in Seattle sports two rooms for the dressed to impress clubbers that pack in to down some expensive drinks and dance the night away. Bottle service is offered at Club Medusa in either the front lounge area or at the reserved tables circling the dance floor. You can show up early at this Seattle nightclub hotspot, but don't expect to get your DJ—spinning new, old school, dance and hip-hop—fueled bumping and grinding on until around midnight when the seemingly sparse crowd multiplies 10 fold and the dance floor is wall to wall. As an added eye candy bonus, Club Medusa employs hottie go-go dancers high above the floor doing their thing to warm up the crowd.
Last Supper Club
124 S. Washington St., Seattle, Washington; Tel. 206.748.9975
A premier dance club in Seattle's Pioneer Square, the Last Supper Club caters to a dressed to impress clubber crowd that starts packing in after 10 for some mainstream house and hip-hop booty shaking. Surprisingly though, this Seattle nightclub also does an outstanding dinner menu for those that seek inclusiveness in their night out. If you want to take advantage of the Last Supper Club's posh lounge area, you'd better assemble your crew or your date early because after 11pm nearly every seat in the house is taken and the slick guest and resident DJs crank up the beats for the burgeoning dance floor masses. Also, the Last Supper Club does something that some other upscale nightclubs in Seattle don't: pour you stiff drinks for your hard earned cash.

Mr. Lucky, a wannabe swank and retro Seattle nightclub and bar, hits it big on the weekends with the scenester set looking to bolster their image by way of Mr. Lucky's little bit kitschy décor, expensive cocktails and see and be seen attitude. The DJs drop party mixes for the crowds packing the dance floor and this Seattle bar can be a freakin' blast if you hit it up with your crew, but remember to shoot for a boozing time at Mr. Lucky well before the needle's off the record, lights up, exit like the joint was on fire sort of early last call.
Trinity Night Club
111 Yesler Way, Seattle, Washington; Tel. 206.447.4140
This three roomed, multi-level dance club and lounge is stylishly decked out just like the twenty-something Seattle clubbers that pack into Trinity Nightclub for heavy drinks and beats. Some of Seattle's top spinners man the decks in each of Trinity's three rooms popping off three distinct vibes, with national and international talent rolling through and dropping beats when they're in town. Cocktails can get a little pricey here, but the dressed to impress ogling set doesn't seem to mind while they get their kicks from more than just energy drinks.

The black clad, vinyl, leather and full-body rubber suit donning after dark crowds flock to the Vogue for some Goth and fetish laden dancing and drinking to some wicked DJs. The crowds are packed into Vogue tighter than the skin-tight outfits the decidedly non-mainstream patrons shimmy into. This is the Seattle club to walk on the wilder side of life—you know it totally reminds us of that underground club in the third (wholly crappy) Matrix installment and you could probably find your own buxom Persephone inside if you're fetishly hip. Some of the hottest dance nights happen at Vogue, but like we mentioned, this crowd can birddog a poseur from behind the masks of their vinyl cat suits from a mile away, so if it's your first time at this Seattle dance club...well, do a little research and good luck.
