Well, after a few drinks, you can almost always count on me wanting to dance and act crazy… Razzoo’s is an excellent place to do both. There’s usually a short line, but with all the people on Bourbon, you have plenty to watch and keep you entertained as you wait. Also, you should have your drink from the last bar you were at (or buy one at the beer stand across the street).

Once you get in, you will go up a couple stairs and fight your way through the crowd (it’s always packed on weekends). There’s a bar on your right, but keep walking. To the left is the dance floor, and to the left of that, another bar, but you have to go to the back of the club to get to them. At the back, you have the option of going outside to the patio or getting on/near the dance floor.

The patio is really cool. There is a bar on the far end that is usually not too crowded, beer tubs on the left wall, and a men’s strip club(!) entrance. There’s also a fountain with a fire in the center (similar to the one at Pat O’s), a few tables, and the bathrooms are out here. There are two large doors that lead you from the patio into the club, so you can still hear the music and dance if you want.

Inside, there is a big stage at the front of the dance floor where there are always people who work there on it. They are either lip-syncing to the song and "performing," trying to get the crowd even more riled-up than they are, announcing drink specials, having a dancing contest, or leading the crowd in a dirty version of the chicken dance. The somewhat small, always-packed dance floor is directly in front of the stage in kind of a "pit" compared to the rest of the club.

The music is a wide variety of rap, pop, old school 80s, hard rock, techno, alternative, and kids music. Rarely will they stick with one type of music for more than 2 or 3 songs. Did you ever expect to be dancing to the theme from "Sesame Street"? Well, at Razzoo’s, you will.

The people at Razzoo’s are awesome. Like the rest of Bourbon, everyone is just looking to have a good time. It’s a fun place to dance and have a good time. I love it there!
