This dance bar and nightclub spot features bottle service, dancing, DJ in a casual atmosphere. Cube presents itself as a mature nightclub for the 25-plus.
Although it is known as a nightclub it can also be rented out for corporate events or lavish parties. Cube boasts a state-of-the-art D&B sound system and a 12-by-6-foot LED wall.
Cube’s retro aesthetic is thanks to Alessandro Munge of Munge Leung. Custom-made bronze shelving behind the 50-foot polished black bar is matched by bronze beams and lighting fixtures throughout. Curved vintage yellow-green booths are spread all over space for ample seating and lounging. Floating above the room and along the back walls, there’s a “film-strip” mural made from the spliced segments of old 70’s porn for an appropriately cubist bit of racy, retro fetishism.
The 3,500-square-foot fully renovated rooftop patio opened May 30, 2012. This fully renovated nightclub would be great to book your next event, especially the patio that can be rented out all summer long.
