Best Place to Purge Shameful '80s Dancing Urges (2008)

The Culture Club

There'll never be another time like the frizzy-haired, sentimental '80s. And there's nothing like a good solid few hours jumping and swinging and singing loud and badly on your handmade microphone at the Culture Club to '80s classics by Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Def Leppard, and Tina Turner. Every night and twice on weekdays you can don your fluorescent socks, crimp your big bangs, wear bracelets up to your shoulders, and let it all hang out. The walls are dedicated to fashionable icons Boy George and Wham! From one ceiling corner protrudes Doc Brown's precious time-defying DeLorean, and scenes from Michael J. Fox's spunkiest role, as Marty McFly in Back to the Future, play on walled TV screens. Elliott from E.T. flies into the night on his bicycle on another wall, and—even before you're inside—there's a little yellow PacMan just waiting to eat you up.
