Best Latin Club - 2013
When it comes down to it, getting into Sky Lounge on Friday and Saturday nights is pretty easy. You just dress nicely (read: no caps or sportswear), wait patiently, and don't be a dick to security. Really, it's getting out that's the hard part. And not just because it gets really busy on weekends. Sky Lounge features the enticing combination of cheap drinks (including the ever-popular Adios Motherfuckers for $3 until midnight) and two levels filled with hot sounds and even hotter women. However, most of the crowd that comes to this longtime downtown Phoenix discoteca (which has been around since 1992) come to dance. And the DJs are glad to oblige. One floor typically is the domain of Latin genres such as salsa and bachata, while the other is hip to the Top 40 and R&B tip. Another reason to stay inside Sky Lounge is its 3 a.m. closing time, which allows you to avoid the usual chaos of the Washington Street club scene that ensues when neighboring clubs kick their patrons out onto the sidewalk at closing time.
