Party Earth Make-Out Room Review

The Scene

Part dive bar, part DJ dance floor, and part live performance venue, Make-Out Room is a smorgasbord of nightlife delights clearly seen through the horn-rimmed specs of its regular clientele.

Part dive bar, part DJ dance floor, and part live performance venue, Make-Out Room is a smorgasbord of nightlife delights clearly seen through the horn-rimmed specs of its regular clientele.

After forking over the cover to the hipsteroid bouncer, patrons enter an elaborately decorated room featuring hundreds of streamers dangling from the high ceiling and more than a few rhinestone deer heads peering down from the walls.

Before the night’s act takes the stage, casual couples swap sweet nothings over $3 microbrews at the bar, while groups of young professionals fill the booths and pretend their quirky days are behind them – no easy task when a demonic baby head glows ominously in a fish tank behind the bar.

The variety of music – which ranges from afro-beats and soul to electronica and salsa – translates into a diverse mix on the dance floor, where music fans squeezing their way toward the small red-curtained stage can just as easily be Latin lovers one night and emo kids the next, all with the common goal of bouncing to the beat.

Those in need of a break can elbow their way past dancing hips to the booths and tables around the perimeter, where worn-out patrons cool down beneath a mounted bearskin and a painting of a family of snails.

Quirky and cool, Make-Out Room is a stellar spot for live music – as well as an ideal hideaway for newly-formed couples looking to support the bar’s name.

Every night is a new year
Calle H. Mar 29, 2013
The first time I entered The Makeout Room I felt like I had lost track of what month it was. Had New Years Eve already approached? The ceiling was littered with glitter and streamers, and confetti seemed to be strewn across the room like a parade had stomped through the building. People were dancing, yelling, and excitedly hustling about perhaps because a a countdown was about to be announced? My thoughts quickly gathered and I confirmed in my mind that it was in fact mid-September. This I found was just another regular night at The Makeout Room...it appears every night looks and feels like New Years Eve.
