OUR PICK: Brass Monkey
, 2702 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 480-4722, facebook.com/brassmonkeytx
A frequent winner of this category, Brass Monkey owns its dance club status. There’s never a cover, drink specials are never more than $3 a pop (oh, and 75 cent wells on Thursday nights), and the groove parties can’t stop, won’t stop. Events include the fourth annual Selena Thurzgayz Tribute held every April, prom nights, ’80s new wave, a 50 Shades Masquerade party, Beyonce’s Baby Shower and the latest must-attend night, Jimmy Eat Wednesday, held every last Wednesday of the month complete with collectable pins and all the early-2000s emo your sad, little heart can handle. The pit — yes, there’s a pit — gets lit. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
