Skully's Music Diner
1151 N. High St., Short North
The synthesized pop bands that made the '80s so memorable often imagined the nightclub as an egalitarian venue for uniting people of all backgrounds in a wild, joyous movement known as "dancing." That ethos is embodied perfectly around 10 p.m. every Thursday, when Ladies '80s starts to heat up at Skully's. If you attend the standby Short North party, be forewarned: You will drink, dance and wake up humming Rockwell's greatest hits.
Runners up: Park Street Patio, Sugar Bar
