I am in a bar near Chicago's "Loop". I feel like I'm in a Sex and the City episode. It's loud and everyone is drinking. I can feel the bass vibrating in my knees and feet. The girls surrounding me seemingly spent careful time in front of the mirror preparing themselves to meet men. I don't know how they can hear anyone they do meet.

I have never understood bars within which it's too loud to talk but one is not intended to dance... at least not in any organized way. Give me a quiet bar with good cocktails any day, or a loud bar with a good show, or a club where dancing is the agenda.
