Best Reason to Risk Your Life at Sixth and Market Streets - 2004
Other than scoring your drug of choice, babbling incoherently at a lamppost, or getting a cash advance at the corner check-cashing center, there are few reasons to venture to Sixth and Market streets -- that is, other than to take advantage of its nightlife. Dotted with clubs like Anú, Club Six, Lit, and Mezzanine, the area is hopping, and its flagship (as far as we're concerned) is Arrow Bar. With a cavelike dance floor complete with dripping stalactites, totally boss DJs dominating the sound, and reasonably priced hooch, Arrow Bar rises above the grime (and its competitors), drawing a solid crowd to its infamous neighborhood every night. Be sure to bring your cash, your dancing shoes, and your pepper spray.
