With a state-of-the-art sound system, scintillating go-go dancers, and a striking clientele, Underbar promises a party that only gets better as the night wears on.
Though the beachy décor of seashell-encrusted pillars and wavy blue linoleum walls may verge on the cheesy, the place nonetheless packs in crowds of high-energy tastemakers and international jet-setters ready for a night of wild dancing and heavy boozing.
Four hundred intoxicated dance addicts pack into the main room of the club, with its expansive white corner bar and scattered seats, to undulate the night away on the hybrid catwalk/banquette to the tune of local and world-renowned DJs blasting everything from house to Latin music.
The lack of an actual dance floor makes the area difficult to navigate late in the night, but the posh patrons don’t seem to mind since the tight squeeze gives them an excuse to get up close and personal with their fellow partiers as they make their way to the small bar in the more sedate side room.
Various theme nights and a diverse music lineup means the crowd is always changing, from bachelorettes and birthday girls indulging in bottles of Veuve and Grey Goose in the orange VIP nook to macho international party animals looking to show off their salsa moves and drag queens flaunting their stuff on Hot Mess Sundays.
Delivering a vigorous workout for any hard-core club-goer, Underbar is a must for those in the mood to shake their tail feathers and maybe take home a stranger.
Posh young professionals, club kids, Europeans, frat guys, international jet-setters, and gays, mid-20s to late 30s.
Hip-hop and soul on Tuesdays, Latin Quarter Night on Thursdays, DJs spinning house, Top 40, international, and Latin music on Fridays, and international, dance, and house music on Saturdays. Gay/bi night on Hot Mess Sundays.
