Pittsburgh Grooveline: Dance parties at Brillobox, Cake, and more (Dec. 5-Dec. 11)

Each week, the Pittsburgh City Paper compiles a list of Pittsburgh dance parties for you and your crew to bust loose to the best bangers, EDM, pop hits, and more. (All events are 21 and over unless otherwise stated.)

This month, Grooveline is making it easier to get funky and festive by highlighting the best holiday dance parties — just look for the gift (🎁) emoji.

Fri., Dec. 6


Pandemic Anniversary Party and Last Dance at Brillobox. 10 p.m.-2 a.m. 4104 Penn Ave., Bloomfield. $10. brilloboxpgh.com - After 14 years of bringing global dance music to various Pittsburgh venues, Pandemic is bidding adieu with a final party at Brillobox. The Facebook event page confirms that, in 2020, Pandemic will shift away from doing regular DJ nights to “producing live international artists under Pandemic Presents” (although they may still produce the occasional dance party). Stomp on the second floor of Brillobox one last time as the Pandemic DJs play a variety of fun, festive, culturally diverse beats from around the world.

Sat., Dec. 7

🎁Back To Zack’s Holiday Party at Cake. 8 p.m. 1900 Smallman St., Strip District. $10. cakepgh.com – Have a holly jolly time and break out your best ugly holiday sweater when iCandy Pittsburgh and DJ Dia take over Cake for the Back 2 Zack’s Holiday Party. The event pays tribute to the days of Dia's old haunt, Zack's Night Club, with a selection of the '80s and '90s dance music. There will also be a contest for the best holiday outfit.
