1999 Best Table Dancing

South Street Diner

We’re not talking about strip joints—get your mind out of the gutter. Table dancing of the G-rated sort is a rare and special event within city limits, taking place at only a handful of late-night dining spots after city clubs close. Your shot at catching some spontaneous hip shaking is at the South Street Diner, where die-hard dancers are known to jump onto tables and countertops, continuing where they left off when the lights came up at Joy and M-80.
