Skully's Music Diner
1151 N. High St., Short North
The formula for Skully's uber-popular Ladies Eighties nights is simple, but it's proven effective: Allow females free entry, play the hits, pack the place out and party all night. The Thursday-night staple has long been a favorite among Alive readers, and this year the club is also won honors as the best dance club and for providing one of the city's finest venues for live rock music.
