For those afflicted with 4ADD, Elysium takes Best Dance Club for good reason. The staff is sexy; the owner, John Wickham, is one of the friendliest mofos in town; and the music ... the music is key. From tribal electronica and progressive beats, to the smooth, murky blade of goth, the music is what defines this Red River haunt. Their dearly devoted clientele knows that it is not only a fabulous place to see and be seen, but a club with an irresistible beat. According to the faithful, there's nowhere else to dance. And Elysium's dedicated retro Eighties underground nights (an alternative to that painfully ubiquitous Eighties, Top 40) and newly revamped Sappho's Isle lesbian night will only earn them more devotees. See, the dead can dance!
