The Front has been holding it down with swagger for years now. There’s no cover charge and an easy vibe, making it a perfect spot to stop in or wind up on a weekend night. When you walk into the big, dark, red room, you can’t help but join the mishmash of humanity bumping booties. You’ll meet every type of person — a cabbie coming off a late shift in an un-ironic Member’s Only jacket, a sorority sister on her 21st birthday, club kids auditioning to be Lizzo’s next backup dancer. Lose yourself in the music, with a full bar of cheap drinks, and a DJ happy to take requests… as long as a big chunk of the requests include Prince’s greatest hits.
