Are you under twenty one and feel that nowhere in Champaign IL has anything for you to do? Well you would be wrong. There are plenty of spots you can go even if you are not twenty one. I am going to tell you the best clubs around. I will start with the good ones and end with the best.
The first club to visit is the Canopy club. You only need to be eighteen to get in. If you enjoy live music this is the place to go. During the school year many big bands come here to perform. These include Chevelle, Staind, Seether, Everclear, and many others. This isn’t so much a place to dance as much as it is a place to just go and listen to good music. Of course if you like to dance no one will stop you. The Canopy club has two rooms in it. When a big band comes to play they open up the back room, when a smaller band comes they keep it closed. If you are looking for some great music and great people I would check it out.
The second club is lava. This is on Bradley Avenue, very close to Parkland college. This club hosts teen night every Saturday night. You have to be between the ages of thirteen and nineteen to get in. This is a very exciting spot to spend the night dancing with your friends. It plays the latest music, has a decent sized dance floor, and some awesome lighting. Since it only allows teenagers in your parents will be more likely to let you go here than to other places were older people can get in. So if you are in your teens and looking for a place to go, check out Lava.
The third club is the Highdive. This is one of my personal favorites. You have to be at least nineteen to get in the door. On Friday and Saturday nights they play some awesome dance/pop music. Tuesday is their industrial music night. Industrial music is basically remixed rock music that you can dance to. I like coming on this night, however if you enjoy crowds this is not the night to come. You would be better off going on Wednesday night, since the place is usually packed. Between nine and eleven the highdive plays country on this night. After eleven they start playing hip-hop and that’s when the crowd gets even bigger. Other than the music this club has some other interesting features about it. It has big booths by the bar that you can sit and enjoy a private conversation with your friends. It has a upstairs pool table in case you get tired of dancing. It also has an outside area to sit and talk to your friends when the weather is nice.
The last club I would recommend checking out is Joes. This is on campus and is a hot spot for college students. What I like about this place is the decent sized dance floor and the poles that you can dance around. On Friday and Saturdays the place is usually packed. On Thursday they have a girls night. Girls can go dance and have the chance to win awesome prizes for free! I also love the lighting this place has on their dance floor. This place also has a few pool tables, a place to sit outside, and a place to sit inside. If you are looking for a really good time go check out Joes.
There are many different spots that people under twenty one can go and have fun. So if your sitting alone bored now you know where to be. All of these clubs are just waiting for you to grace them with your presence. What are you waiting for?
