Club Candids: Retro Hi-Fi at SideBar

The true test of any bar's popularity isn't if it's crowded on Friday or Saturday (every place is like that), but rather if it's just as busy on an off night like Sunday. Based upon the amount of people that crammed themselves inside SideBar during Retro Hi-Fi on Sunday, December 18, the stylish second-floor cocktail lounge is plenty popular.

People turned out to witness hip-hop vocalist Amani Jae on the mic, dk.strickler and other DJs on the decks, get in some photo-bombing, or perhaps to just make the scene. Whatever their reasons for being there, everyone in the house was happy to let us snap their pictures for this week's Club Candids slideshow.
