When it comes to clubbing, it’s all about going to the right place at the right time in the right outfit with the right people. Sound overwhelming? Let us help you figure out where you were born to rage.
Vao’s crowd is of the more upscale, white collar scene. The people are strictly dressed to impress and nothing less. Expect the club to be laden with young professionals just getting off work at Ernst & Young, dressed to the nines and tossing back cocktails. It’s also a Greek-heavy scene, with members of UH’s sororities and fraternities flocking to the club on weekends. | Courtesy of Vao
The scene at South Beach is and almost exclusively LGBT. Gay, straight, or transgendered – the atmosphere is open and friendly. The scene at South Beach features people of all ages, all looking for a fun night in one of Houston’s most popular clubs.
The crowd at Numbers is of the alternative scene. If you’re up for a little rebellion and a trip to the wild side, you’ll find the right company here. The people are edgier and come from a different shade of cool.
Grooves is a local brunch spot for the younger and professional crowd. The people there take brunch seriously. But on weekend nights, it comes to life with hip hop dancing and a lounge that fills up quickly. If you’re young and hungry for a good meal and a good time afterward, Grooves needs to be your destination.
“Coogs Choose” is a special section produced by The Cougar in collaboration with the Center for Student Media that spotlights students’ favorite places and activities around campus and Houston. Pick up the magazine at campus newsstands until April 22.
