The club scene clearly gravitates around one intergalactically funky spot: Mad Planet and its bright Riverwest spot, which has claimed victory in the best club/DJ/dance category in the Best of Bars poll for seemingly as long as the universe has existed. And considering the club's lineup of throwback music parties as endless as the stars, its psychedelic retro decor and, of course, a dance floor as big as the galaxy for you to bust a move.
Mad Planet is far from the only great place in Milwaukee to bust out your fancy footwork, though. Jo-Cat's on Brady Street scored second place from OnMilwaukee voters while throwback lounge Victor's nabbed the bronze, the combo of RWB and the resurrected Buckheads took fourth and SITE 1A landed in fifth.
OnMilwaukee editors' pick: Jo-Cat's
It may have earned the silver medal from readers, but for the OnMilwaukee editors, the gold medal goes to Jo-Cat's. The festive yet relaxed neighborhood bar energy, good music and cozy but not cramped quarters make this longtime Brady Street hotspot the cat's meow.
