The scene is reminiscent of the Beck song “Where’s It At” — with two turntables and a microphone in the newly positioned DJ booth. There is no draft beer here, so keep a koozie tucked into your back pocket for the bottles and cans. Cocktails are available, but don’t expect to drink them out of your typical glassware. At The Whip, it’s all about the party – whether taking over the dance floor or challenging a stranger to a game of pool on the iconic cheetah pool table.
