Icehouse One Twenty One fuels revelry with a mix of hearty pub food and lighter dishes. Icehouse shiner bock beer batter coats substantial portions of North Atlantic cod fillets and chicken strips, and custom burgers allow patrons to squish almost any type of ingredient they can think of between two thick slices of bread.

Patrons work up their appetites by cheering at flat-screen TVs, yelling at flats-screen TVs should they be turned off, and challenging fellow bargoers to games of darts.

At Hip Hop Heels, high-heeled shoes aren't dainty accessories, but fierce dancing tools. Owner Geena Ngaaje encourages her students to don comfortable heeled boots for her signature classes, thereby increasing the workout for their lower bodies and injecting the choreography with style. Geena and her team practice a combination of hip-hop, street, and burlesque dance, often channeling the moxie of celebrities such as Beyoncé and Ciara. They also pull from personal experience as performers—their resumés list back-up gigs with the Black Eyed Peas, LL Cool J, and Pitbull.
Their sessions aren't geared entirely toward stars on the rise, however. Whether they're demonstrating sensual hip rolls during Pumps and Grinds or the seductive shimmies of Cabaret, they cater to women of all experience levels, from first-timers to fellow pros and animated characters that are drawn to dance. They also host workshops for beginners, which focus on becoming confident in heels. Private parties allow guests to choose their preferred dance style for a customized lesson, and special-event workshops cover entire routines, including holiday-themed performances set to "Santa Baby."
