Hours: Tue-Sat 8pm-1:30am
For those looking to dance to a different beat, the small-but-always-packed Club Viva! offers world music five nights a week. Hidden in plain sight in an alley just off bustling Euclid Avenue, this club still manages to feel miles away from the sports bars and boutique shops of the Central West End. Hour-long dance lessons are free prior to Latin nights, and the diverse crowd is always friendly and willing to give pointers. Freewheeling bartenders serve up tasty nightly specials, and though most of the music pumping through Club Viva! is via DJ, the club also occasionally attracts international reggae acts.
