Join your older friends out for a night of dancing at fun at two dance clubs and one bar in the downtown area, but don’t forget to bring an ID along to verify your age.


Sparty’s Night Club

Located on Clippert Street in downtown Lansing, you can hang out with the older college crowd at this low-key club. Thursday nights are the most popular time for the under-21 crowd, when the DJ is spinning techno and top 40/Billboard hits. However, the 18-21 year old group can go to Sparty’s every night of the week.
