No Vacancy Details:
No food in the venue at the moment, but just a few doors down you can find Thai eats at the Crying Tiger walk-up window.
They’ve got a rotating selection of craft cocktails that will definitely please your palate. There’s also a beer selection if you’re craving a brew. Don’t forget to check out the Greenhouse Bar outside if the line inside gets crazy. You can also buy bottle service to solidify a place to sit for the evening.
You’ll hear #1 hits from literally every era–from the ’60s to today. The DJ keeps the outdoor patio and indoor living room nook filled with dancers. You can also occasionally find live bands performing on the outdoor stage.
No Vacancy is known for being a great place to meet people. The décor also perfectly represents 1920s prohibition in the Victorian-style house. Chandeliers, fireplaces and vintage furnishings set the scene after you enter through the mysterious secret passage upstairs. Getting in is tough on weekends so come early (before 10pm) for easier entry. You can catch the burlesque performers at 11pm, 12am and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.
📸 Photo Ops:
They don’t allow photos of the entrance, but as soon as you walk in, there’ll be plenty of sights to capture. Head towards the exit to snap a pic on the carousel horse. There’s also a secret photo booth beneath the stairs that’s perfect for an incognito photo shoot.
