Six spots to shake your groove thing

Borracho Tacos & Tequileria Choose one (or a few) of the 75 tequilas to try while enjoying Borracho's spacious patio, with a large center fire pit, or the louder, more crowded interior. The simple house margarita is a reliable go-to, or try one of the housemade infused margaritas — perfect fuel for the dance floor. 211 N. Division St., Spokane, Wash. • 822-7789

Impulse Similar to the the Vegas vibe of Northern Quest's casino, Impulse maintains a glitzy feel. With karaoke and DJ Patrick on Friday and Saturday nights, it's impossible to be at Impulse and not feel the urge to dance. Get a drink from the horseshoe bar before getting back out on the dance floor or returning to the casino floor.  Northern Quest Resort and Casino, 100 N. Hayford Rd., Airway Heights, Wash. • 242-7000

nYne Bar & Bistro It's almost impossible to avoid ending up in the middle of the dance floor at nYne if you're going out downtown; it's spacious enough for even some of the craziest dance moves. If you're really feeling adventurous — and there isn't a live band playing — hop up to the stage to showcase your moves under the lights. 232 W. Sprague Ave., Spokane, Wash. • 474-1621

Rocker Room The Rocker Room is the place to do exactly as its name suggests — rock. Fridays and Saturdays are club nights, so expect a crowded dance floor and loud DJ music. It also hosts live bands and themed nights during the week, such as Two4One Drink Tuesdays and Monday Night Mayhem specials. No matter the night of the week, there's always something going on at the Rocker Room.  216 E. Coeur d'Alene Ave., Coeur d'Alene, Idaho • 208-676-2582

Scotty's Doghouse Owner Scott Wilburn is an avid skier and sports fanatic. With nine TVs in his pub, you'll never miss a sporting event. While you can grab a drink and catch a game on weekdays, Scotty's transforms on weekends, featuring DJs, dancing, strobe lights and good music. Wilburn hopes to create a community and a space for people to come hang out. Decorate your own mug as a part of the mug club loyalty program, or just swing in for a chicken and waffle cone. 1305 N. Hamilton St., Spokane, Wash. • 241-0208

Stray Nightclub Opened in the the former Irv's location, this new downtown bar leaves its dress code up to its employees — which usually means only boxers and bras. Like Irv's, Stray is home to drag shows, DJs and dance parties, but the dance floor now closes at 2 am instead of staying open until 4, so get there early to get your dance on all night. 415 W. Sprague Ave., Spokane, Wash. • 624-4450
