Best Place to Go Dancing for $5 on a Friday Night - 2002
"Joyride" at 26 Mix
Bay Area veteran DJs O-Dub and Vinnie Esparza spin dance-ready hip hop, vintage reggae, dancehall, Latin, and funk every second Friday of the month at 26 Mix. The DJs' seamless mix of both obscure records and old-school hits on the club's suspended turntables gets even the most determined wallflower onto the dance floor. But most of the diverse and un-yuppified crowd takes quickly to the music; there's always someone to dance with, yet always enough room to groove. And as if quality beats weren't enough, there are always the myriad diversions at 26 Mix: full bar, comfy velvet conversation booths, and, behind a thick velvet curtain, a pool table and classic Atari games (Ms. Pac-Man and Frogger!).
