What it's like inside: Transport yourself to Little Havana at this club night that takes over two downtown bars with pumping Latin beats. The doorman says to guys as they enter that this is a good night for picking up chicks, but I'm pretty sure they say that every night. What's advertised online as all-you-can-drink open premium bars are actually just open well drinks when it comes to liquor. For an extra $2.50, you can upgrade to premium. Without the upgrade, expect to be gripping the porcelain throne for most of the evening. Come early if you don't want to stand in line to get in, but you'll end up just standing around waiting for people to show up. In the Social, DJ Frankie plays salsa, merengue and bachata, while the Beacham blasts reggaetón all night. Guys can be seen in chinos and nice button-downs or jeans and polos, while the ladies show up wearing everything from dresses to shorts. If you're not into popular Latin music, you probably won't have much fun. But if you're an alcoholic, this is your place to spend Sunday night. – Justin Braun
