    Hi STL natives and visitors,

    I'm in STL for two nights and I've looked at GayCities and ClubFly and old threads on RJ in a valiant attempt to find a club to go to, but it seems like so many have closed. I DON'T want a "neighborhood dive bar" - I want a club, with flashy lights, a big dance floor, and pop/electronic/mashup music - preferably NOT interrupted by a damn drag show. The only thing I've found that still seems to be operating is Just John's. Is that the best bet? Smoke-free a plus but at this point I'm not being too picky. icon_neutral.gif

    Thanks!

    Actually JJ's has a much better dance floor and an actual DJ. Since the complex closed JJs has become much more diverse and shed a bit of its hard edge. You may want to check it out. Just Johns can be a lot of fun, but it's still a "stand and pose" bar more than anything. Lots to look at though!

    Uh...JJ's website seems to indicate that it's largely leather and bears. Is this no longer the case?

    Thanks!

    Honestly it can get a little hairy (pun intended) there. But it's not a bear cave either. If you want dancing, they've got it. Novak's has a DJ several nights a week as well, but it's predominately lesbian. About a 60/40 mix. Small dance floor. Good food.
