Best Of 2004

Best Dance Club: Wish

Modä is the obvious pick, but Wish wins, by virtue of its stunning renaissance. Gloomy and gothy under previous ownership, its cult quality is now attributable to the star DJs who pass through Wish during nationwide tours. With three floors, Wish is almost never too crowded, and the music tempo rises as you move upstairs -- from jazz, soul, and funk to hip-hop and house. A bartender on the top floor juggles Molotov cocktails, to the glee of gorgeous people.
