Pardon if Paradox has become something of a default winner over the years, but we should probably be looking a bit deeper at why in the hell Baltimore should have a default winner in this category. Why, in the city that birthed Baltimore club music and served as one of house music’s proving grounds, isn’t the dance-club landscape in this city more packed to the ceiling, er, disco ball, with dance clubs—like actual dance-specific joints? Honorable mention goes to newcomer the Get Down, which is doing some pretty great stuff, though our dancing itch tends to come around more often than our upscale-lounge itch.
