If you want to see Rotture at its full potential, visit on a Thursday for the bar’s legendary soul night—an evening full of sweaty bodies, projections of ’70s videos and DJs spinning soulful tracks, all for a $3 cover. This crowd is eclectic. Guys wearing fedoras smoke cigarettes on the rooftop patio and chat with ladies who look like Urban Outfitters models, while flat-brimmed baseball-capped dudes grind on girls in booty shorts on Rotture’s small stage. If bumpin’ and grindin’ ain’t your thang, don’t fret—Rotture hosts live music of all genres. (KN)
