Donning glamorous outfits and armed with the goofy sex appeal burlesque is famous for, members of Vaudezilla and Belmont Burlesque take to The Joynt’s stage to present their brand of come-hither entertainment. In Bottoms Up, dancers wield classic props and flashy costumes that exacerbate the tease throughout musical vignettes. Stars and Stripes, on the other hand, packs everything its title implies, lauding Flag Day and the Fourth of July in the most sensual way possible.
Sliced into three distinct venues, The Joynt quenches the cravings of music enthusiasts with nightly live performances from sonic ensembles such as jazz trios, funk bands, and local DJs. Attendees can counterbalance widespread swooning by diving into The Joynt’s appetizing pizzas ($10+) and quesadillas ($8), or they can build enough courage to ask the microphone for an autograph by imbibing the bar’s selection of drinks ($5+).
At The Joynt, bartenders blend tasty cocktails as jazz trios fill eardrums with soothing tunes and DJs command armies of dancers moving in tandem to top 40 hits. Like a dapper hydra, The Joynt wears many hats, entertaining patrons with funk bands and pop standards in the live room while resident DJs spin in the grand bar. In the lounge, ambient lighting gleams off leather chairs and sofas amid mirror-lined walls. And in warmer months, servers step outside the two-story club to deliver drinks for patrons sitting beneath capacious umbrellas that double as bold embellishments for cocktails.
