If your Saturday night wasn’t wild enough, come to this recently revamped club for sloppy weekend seconds, courtesy of a weekly party hosted by New England’s longtime LGBT nightlife kingpin Chris Harris. At this subterranean Theater District scene, DJs drop pop-dance beats like glitter bombs, and sweaty throngs only part long enough to gawk at the occasional sequin-bedecked drag queen making her grand entrance. This fabulous flirt-fest proves that even in the Grindr era, there’s no replacement for good-old bump-and-grind.
