Room 960

960 Main St., #5
Hartford, CT 06103
(860) 522-9960

Get ready ladies, because Girls’ Night Out is every Friday at Room 960! This trendy bar has bottle service and is known for their house music, yet the owners change it up on certain days. Wednesday nights, the club goes hip-hop. On Fridays, it’s top 40 hits. And Saturday nights feature house music. No matter what the DJ is spinning, Room 960 is one of the best places to go dancing in Hartford. Pick a night with the music you enjoy, and go out and have a good time!

The Mansion

183-191 Ann St.
Downtown Hartford, CT
(860) 241-0332

With three floors that include a dance club, rooftop patio, lounge and an area for live bands, there is something here for any personality. Open Thursday through Saturday, the Mansion offers one of the area’s only 18+ nights for college students on Thursdays, and is known to have other theme nights, as well. The first floor plays “old school” music, the second floor plays current hits, and the rooftop patio is where you can hear your 80s favorites. And just because there’s a patio, don’t feel as if you have to rush up there to cool off on those hot nights of dancing. The Mansion has an advanced cryogenic system that cools the air temperature when it senses it’s too hot. No over-heating, no rushing to get air, just dancing and enjoyment.

Club Charisma

92 Walnut St.
Hartford, CT 06120
(860) 524-1400

Dancing is not the only way this club excludes charisma – Club Charisma owners and staff know how to party! From theme nights to foam parties to Halloween Masquerade balls, they are always thinking of new ways to add a little fun to your night. However, when there isn’t foam seeping in around you, it is still a sophisticated club. You can still kick your shoes off and have a good time. Just remember to then gently place your shoes in the corner.
