For most 9-to-5ers, weeknight partying is an indulgence. A regrettable indulgence. Clubs know this, and while some choose to address it by only opening their doors on the weekends, others are altering their programming to cater to this professional crowd (that can’t afford a Tuesday hangover). Springwise points us to a few mid-week, mid-evening ragers that are helping pull in the older revellers and office drones:
Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel recently launched an earlier alternative that still lets revellers get to bed on time. The Gladstone’s Granny Boots series of dance parties take place each Wednesday night beginning at 7:30 and ending promptly at 10—”so you can go home, watch ‘Law and Order’ until 11 pm and go to BED,” as the hotel puts it. The events are held in the Gladstone’s Melody Bar, which is already famous for weekend karaoke nights, and feature different performances and livingroom DJs each week.
