Long lines of eager partiers and a small sign may be the only indications there’s a party going on in Down Ultra Lounge, but the sophisticated singles and fratty hard-bodies making their way down to the subterranean nightclub know they’re in for an energetic and drunken night of nonstop grooving and boozing.
The mass of vibrant dancers forms a colorful collage against the striking white brick room, with occasional revelers using the slender pillars to show off their stripper moves. Dueling DJs show up every night to mix pulsing beats and create an electric atmosphere that keeps the party buzzing.
As the night wears on, chaos reigns as overindulging clubbers turn the LED-lit space into a den of decadence, with steamy make-out sessions, high-octane dance-offs, and queasy patrons making a run for the bathroom providing unexpected entertainment.
Those who can hold their liquor elbow their way to the expansive backlit bar beside the dance floor, while chic locals looking for VIP treatment tend to congregate on the white leather couches for bottle service.
A wild underground dance scene and an animated crowd of fist pumpers and booty shakers makes Down Ultra Lounge a must for connoisseurs of gelled hair, hot beats, and getting one’s freak on till last call.
