Rotating guest DJs play a variety of throwback tunes from the 80s, 90s, and 00s.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Concourse Dance Bar?
Concourse is an underground dance bar with retro vibes, concert level speakers, a state of the art light system, 20 person ball pit, vintage photo booth, draft beers and cocktails and an environment that invites everyone.
What’s the deal with the name?
As the saying goes: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Before we set up shop, Concourse was simply the name where rail lines met. Now, Concourse is a different kind of meeting place. It’s where old-school music meets a high tech dance floor and childhood fun meets grown up parties. Sure, it’ll get a lil’ weird, but isn’t it nice to let your freak flag fly?
