Since Halloween 1998, Area 51 has stuck to its guns and thrived as Salt Lake City’s premier dance club specializing in industrial, electronic, 80s & gothic music. Warehouse-type digs include two floors with plenty of seating and an all-ages area serving non-alcoholic drinks. Two patios offer sweet relief on scorching summer nights. Anyone with a good pair of dancing shoes and tolerance for loud music will fit right in on the club’s spacious dance floors. Over-18 and over-21 rooms attract diverse, eclectic crowds,from hip young things to more mature patrons who actually saw Depeche Mode during their 101 tour. Tuesday through Saturday, Area 51 prides itself on playing five nights of music that you might not hear elsewhere. That means more new-wave, less Top 40. Check the club calendar for a list of DJs spinning everything from Ladytron to Joy Division and Gene Loves Jezebel. Live bands also play on occasion. Area hosts frequent fetish nights and a grander fetish ball for more adventurous club-goers.
