Nerd Nightlife

If you're a dancing nerd, the place to go is Insert Coin(s), an "interactive videolounge" that features an LED-illuminated Beta Bar from which partygoers can play Xbox 360 or PlayStation games in high resolution on 14 large-screen TVs. For more nostalgic gamers, the club boasts 60 vintage arcade favorites such as Ms. Pac Man and Tetris. There are also special events and music theme nights, often featuring guest DJs from around the world.
