Privileged Fridays @ Oceans Seven

Dario Varela rocks the decks like nobody's business. The 29-year-old DJ has become a staple of Latin dance events in downtown Phoenix in recent years, having spun cumbias and reggaeton tracks in such spots as Sky Lounge, Silver, and PHX Nightclub. Varela's sights are now set on conquering Scottsdale, as he and DJ Kyko have relocated their Privileged Fridays party over to Oceans Seven, 1420 North Scottsdale Road. Every weekend, the rooms of the newly rechristened Scottsdale club are filled with Latin beats, hip-hop hotness, and electro anthems as the duo work their magic. Tio Gio from 101.5 Jamz hosts the night, which starts at 9 p.m. No cover. Call 480-248-7467.
