About Concourse

Concourse Dance Bar is the place to be on the weekends! Known for its Instagram-famous ball pit, this massive two-story nightclub in Center City is decked out with eclectic, retro flair. Concourse brings people together for a night of dancing and fun, with music and vibes instead of VIP sections, dress codes, or bottle service. 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?
