Dance under the stars all night long at BarCode, an open-air venue featuring a full menu, flat-screen TVs airing sporting events, and DJs spinning a variety of tracks from hip-hop to house. If you need a little liquid courage to step on the dance floor, order a bottle or two of vodka or champagne for the table. If you’re out on the patio, you can dance by the pool—yes, they have a pool—just make sure you watch where you’re two-stepping.
