Cotton Club, Bilbao

25 Calle Gregorio de la Revilla
Tel: 34 94 410 4951's insider take:

Harlem it ain't, but this Cotton Club is still a great place to dance. On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, a clientele of twenty- and thirtysomethings comes to groove to DJ-spun tracks. Pop, rock, and soul musicians also perform live (check the calendar on the website). Set in the neighborhood of Indautxu, southeast of the Guggenheim, the moody-looking space is decorated in black and red with dark metalwork. It's also small—only about 100 people can fit inside—so steer clear if bumping elbows on the dance floor isn't your thing. The bar serves more than 100 varieties of rum and whiskey.
