Nightlife in Dundee

Select Local Merchants

Since 1925, the Dundee Theatre’s gold curtains have been parting for generations of rapt audiences. Originally a vaudeville theater, the venue was transformed into a movie house during the Great Depression as a cost-cutting measure. For the next half century it traded hands, sometimes screening art films, sometimes featuring family fare, and once showing a 118-week run of The Sound of Music, which was eventually halted by a town statute banning raindrops on roses.

In 1980, current owner Denny Moran stepped in and renovated the theater to recapture some of the splendor of its early days. The old vaudevillian stage and dressing rooms still lurk behind the silver screen, counterbalanced by a state-of-the-art Dolby Digital EX sound system and Cyrano de Bergerac smell system. Under Moran's watch, the Dundee Theatre now screens an eclectic mix of art and independent films, cinema classics, and cult favorites.

Though it's usually closed to the public during December, the Renaissance Mansion will be throwing open its French doors and this Groupon is good on certain days throughout December and January, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a festive holiday-themed buffet (see the fine print for blackout dates). The menu changes each day, but a spread of five salads, four entrees, two potato dishes, and a dessert will fuel any impromptu eating contests with overly boastful Supreme Court justices. Once you've washed it all down with water, or hot cider (soft , the sprawling estate is yours to explore. As you wander beneath the beamed ceilings, waltz across the formal dining room, and melodramatically throw snifters of brandy into any of the various fireplaces, you'll pass 13 magnificently decorated Christmas trees whose colorful lights glint off the surrounding mahogany wood, Tiffany glass, and silver chandeliers. Renaissance Mansion can also set up parties of 14 or more in a private dining area so that no one on your Viking longboat feels left out.

That’s because the restaurant features a second identity as a space for local artists and non-profits, fostering a unique, artistic, and communal feel that pervades the stage and connected restaurant. Before catching a show or event, clients can split one of the house’s signature pizzas loaded with fresh ingredients on their in-house crust. Outside of pizzas, the chefs incorporate a full menu of sizzling oven-toasted subs, traditional pastas, and an expansive wine and beer list that offers the perfect pairing.

Founded in 2003 by Derek and Rachelle Pasqualetto, Simply Ballroom gives students over 3,000 square feet of sprung wood floor space in which to learn practical dance skills that can be used to sweep job interviewers and Supreme Court justices off their feet. During two 40-minute private lessons (new clients get one complimentary lesson, $65 value for each additional), a professional dance instructor will introduce each customer to a wide range of dance styles—including the waltz, tango, cha cha, rumba, salsa, mambo, and end zone shuffle. By dancing with a knowledgeable human being rather than a complicated PowerPoint presentation, students are guaranteed to receive helpful pointers and attentive, one-on-one care. Once students settle on a style or two they like, they'll have a full month of unlimited group classes ($60 value) to fine-tune them with fellow dancers at their skill level—in the process receiving a core-strengthening workout, improving coordination, and developing a tolerance for centrifugal G-force that comes in handy during space travel. Finally, students will get to socialize and show off their fancified footwork during a two-hour practice party ($10 value) in a nightclub environment, where they can build confidence for real-life social dances, as well as enjoy an excuse to wear sequined cape skirts and ruffled pirate shirts outside of their shift at the DMV.
