The Can Can is an intimate, subterranean den with an old-time speakeasy feel, rich food, and reasonably priced liquor—an enchanting hideaway any night of the week. On Wednesdays, the cabaret's small cadre of captivating dancers take to the tiny stage and spin eerie fables to a cirque noir and vaudeville-flavored soundtrack by the Bad Things, Dresden Dolls, and the like. (Can Can, 94 Pike St, 652-0832. 9 pm, $5, 21+.)
