A small bar with big-bar attitude, this Durham dance club rocks the nightlife on Ninth Street.. The Scene The dance club half of Bakus on Ninth Street, 9 manages to make the most of its small space, with a dance floor, lights, mini bubble machine and busy bartenders. It takes a ladder to get to the DJ's perch above the dance floor. Despite the space challenges, the whole scene suits young partiers who enjoy the casual convenience of dancing on Ninth Street.
The Draw This is a good place to go if you feel like dancing, but don't want to drive across the Triangle to spend an evening at a club in Raleigh. With a minimal cover charge, enticing drink specials and a funky decor, 9 is fun and low-key. If the weather's nice, the bar's large semi-enclosed back deck is an excellent spot to enjoy a drink.
