Arcade Night @ Hotel, Ladies Night @ The Bay & Hypa Thursdays @ Studio 27 | Club Matters | Salt Lake City | Salt Lake City Weekly
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Arcade Night @ Hotel, Ladies Night @ The Bay & Hypa Thursdays @ Studio 27


The Hotel: Arcade, anyone?
Tuesdays just got a lot gamier at The Hotel. The guys who used to run Game Night at The Sandbar have moved their operations to The Hotel for Arcade Night. Not only can you play games on the Kinect and more standard consoles, but there’s dancing in the basement, as well. DJ Hunter was on the 1s and 2s, offering better-than-average music to play pool to. Heads up: the game guys, Brenton Leu and John Roh, have an event coming up on March 22nd playing Killzone 3. The Hotel is a pretty vibrant place—which means games and gamers have officially gone mainstream. Congrats! Have a beer and a cocktail and go play your Rockband and such at 155 W. 200 South.

Ladies Night At The Bay: They Don’t Play, It’s For Real
Wednesday night is Ladies Night at The Bay. DJ Jello gets partying down to a science on Hump Day. Never been to The Bay? It’s a beautiful building with a huge dance floor. You’ve got no excuse not to go to 404 S. West Temple.

Getting Hyphy: Hypa Thursdays
Studio 27 is one of the rowdiest “alternative” lifestyle clubs in the city, and its resident entertainment maestro Superstar DJ Dega is bringing it again with Hypa Thursdays. He claims they have the best drink specials in the city and the hottest bodies. We can vouch for the latter, the former you will have to see for yourself at 615 W. 100 South.
