This compact hotspot provides an unusual combination of intimacy and frenzy. – The Scene
Twist has been a popular haunt for near-West Side gay and gay-friendly locals since bursting onto the scene two years ago. While the decor is relatively modest--little more than two glass-block bars and a multi-tiered dance floor--the festive mood of Twist's eye-catching crowd provides any missing embellishments. Tightly packed booty-shakers groove to pulsating techno rhythms while others meet and mingle with friends around the bars. While catering to a gay clientele, this mini-club welcomes freethinking individuals of any persuasion looking to take a vacation from their worries.
Even when it's not happy hour, cocktails are priced to please: less than $3 for well-liquor drinks and no more than $5 if your palate is accustomed to finer spirits. Ask for bartender Jimmy, who whips together a Godiva Chocolate martini to rival all the similar, pricier concoctions poured at Warehouse District establishments.
