5 Reasons Bubba’s Is The Best Place to Dance In Maine
Do you believe in love at first sight? Your mouth goes dry, your heart skips a beat, visions of future dreams start solidifying in your mind. Everything else fades away and it's just the two of you.
Last night, I fell in love... with Bubba's Sulky Lounge. It's the best dance spot I've ever been to, bar none.
Here are 5 reasons why.
1) Everyone is a friend waiting to be made
From the three different bachelorette party groups to Noah the security guard, anyone you come across is happy and friendly. I bonded with people over everything from oddball dance moves to the comfy swivel chairs at the bar. Sometimes clubs can get a feisty mosh pit vibe, but the floor at Bubba's only ever felt like a bomb-ass dance party with all my closest acquaintances!
2) You can choose your level of intensity
Not only is there a light-up disco/rubix cube dance floor - THERE ARE THREE. Oh that's right, folks. Three levels of dance floor. The first is the largest, busiest, and loudest, but each factor decreases as you climb deeper into the bar, so if you're in more of a wallflower mood or wanting to hold a conversation with someone, head straight to the back.
3) The exploring never ends
This place is like the page of an I Spy book meets a thrift store/80s museum. Behind every corner is some cool piece of history waiting to be marveled at. We saw a suit of armor, a barber's chair, a number of mannequins with impeccable fashion sense, and countless tin lunch boxes hanging from the ceiling. If we weren't so busy dancing, we would've spent the night playing hide and seek.
4) '80s spirit pays off
The $5 cover was a no-brainer after the first five minutes, but I later learned if you dress up in '80s garb, you get in free! Any bar that motivates its patrons to get all out silly in tutus and headbands, you have my heart.
5) The sweet jams never end
Two judgments of a good dance bar: 1) Yelp, Insta, and Facebook pictures capturing the Bubba's experience are all blurry. 2) You intend to take a break from dancing after this song, but when it ends you decide to take a break after the next song, and then the next one... until it's an hour later and your knees are gonna give out if you don't force yourself to leave during this killer dance song.
Bubba's blows other dance bars outta the water, guys. You gotta go.
