Where else can you find a dance club going off at 8 pm every day of the week? In the Castro, of course. Badlands is a dark and sweaty gay club, with a decent sized dance floor where people bump-and-grind to pop music blasting over video screens. Follow the dance moves of Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga and Madonna. The main draw to Badlands is their amazing Happy Hour special: 2-for-1 top-shelf drinks from 5 pm – 8pm! That equates to about $7 for two Kettle One Cosmos! Fuck yeah!
Keep in mind that the drinks are so stiff, you may just fall down after two rounds. In the mean time, follow the crowd and stay double fisted. It doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight or bi – everybody fits in. I went there last Friday with a gay guy friend and a group of girls. Fellow writer Monica had it right when she wrote, “You figure since there are no heteros within a mile of this place that you’re safe.” But after seeing some mad gyrating on the dance-floor, you just never know what kind of trouble you might get into at Badlands.Happy Hour: 2-for-1 Cocktails Monday-Saturday 5 pm – 8pm Badlands 4121 18th St. [Castro] a
