Join the pretty people—when the evening turns to night—at Michael Paolucci’s Ei8ht bar. The LED-happy dance club, which opened last spring, is filled with polished-wood, red accents and a sexy crowd looking for a wild night on the town.
The multi-level interior offers several spots to enjoy bottle service and people watching, as well as sectioned-off areas that give groups a sense of privacy in an otherwise airy room. Stake claim on one of the red banquettes that surround the dance floor and jam to pop music played by the house DJ. Between songs, head upstairs for a birds-eye-view of Washington Avenue from the second-floor balcony or, just out front, there’s a chill al fresco space where you can find flirty singles sipping on fruit-filled cocktails.
Get there early enough to avoid the crowd and in time to sample some of Ei8ht’s tasty tuna nachos and paninis, which are served until 10PM.
