Downtown's Gothic Noc Noc
1516 Second Ave, 223-1333
Description: A Downtown nightclub wonderland.
What's inside: The withering presence of evil. (There's a tremendous winged-demon sculpture above the bar and a row of creepy white statues resembling cemetery monuments along the entrance.)
On the dance floor: Goths, dancing goth-style to everything, even poppy '80s hits.
Why it works: Catchy electro pop only deepens the angst.
Happy hours: Daily 5–9 pm.
Happy-hour drink specials: $2 beer (Bud Light, High Life), $3 wells, $5 40-ounce PBR, $15 select bottles of wine.
Happy-hour food specials: $3 tater tots, $3 pork egg rolls, and more.
Bonus: Following a cover charge ($3 for those in black, $5 for everybody else), Miller High Life drafts cost just $.25 (Sun 9 pm–close). Weekends bring an after-hours schedule (Fri 2–10 am, Sat 2–11 am, with full food menu available and alcohol served at 6 am).This article has been updated since its original publication.
