Nightlife Agenda

How busy is this week? We've got a dozen options for you on Wednesday night alone, which include open-bar parties with hip-hop and electro DJs, a special edition of the Glow dance night with superstar DJ Paul van Dyk, live go-go from Chuck Brown, a party hosted (and allegedly featuring a live performance by) R. Kelly, cover bands in Clarendon, and a lounge serving sushi rolls along with the beats. Then you move on to a weekend with Afrobeat, conscious reggae, classic hip-hop, a record release party at Bliss and a Black Friday bar crawl.
