In Arlington Heights all establishments must serve food. You might say their are no bars, per se -- only retaurants with bars.

Burlesque is a humorous theatrical entertainment involving parody and sometimes grotesque exaggeration. In 20th century America, the burlesque became associated with a variety show in which striptease is the chief attraction.

Clubbers -- people who frequent nightclubs.

Cocktail is a style of mixed drink. Originally a mixture of distilled spirits, sugar, water, and bitters, but today is defined as almost any mixed drink containing alcohol. A cocktail today usually contains one or more types of liquor and one or more mixers, such as bitters, fruit juice, fruit, soda, ice, sugar, honey, milk, cream, or herbs.

Dance Party or rave parties are gatherings in private houses, bars], nightclubs or community centres where the guests informally dance to dance music such as pop, disco, electronica, house, techno and trance. The music for dance parties is usually selected and played by a disk jockey (DJ) over a public address (PA) system or a powerful sound system of some kind. Conversation is not an integral part of these parties as those who attend express themselves through their dancing and by gesturing.

Disco is a genre of dance music with its origin in clubs that catered to African American, psychedelic and other communities in New York City and Philadelphia during the late 1960s and early 1970s. While disco was a form of black commercial pop music and a craze among black gay men especially, it did not catch mainstream attention until it was picked up by the predominantly white gay clubs of New York in the early 1980's. Latinos and women embraced disco as well, and the music eventually expanded to several other popular groups of the time.

Discothèque -- an entertainment venue or club with recorded music played by Disc jockeys through a PA system, rather than an on-stage band. Prior to the discothèque, most bars and nightclubs used live bands as entertainment.

Fix, a mixture of liquor, citrus, and sugar.

Fizz, a fix with a carbonated beverage added

Highball is the name for a family of mixed drinks that are composed of an alcoholic base spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Originally, the most common highball was made with Scotch whisky and carbonated water. Common Highball drinks: Harvey Wallbanger (vodka, Galliano, and orange juice), Jack and Coke (Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey and Coca-Cola), Cuba Libre (Cola, lime, and rum aka 'Rum & Coke'), Scotch and Soda, Seven and Seven (Seagram's Seven Crown Blended Whiskey and 7-Up), the Moscow Mule (vodka, ginger beer, and lime, served in a copper mug), the gin and tonic, and Sex on the Beach (Seagram's 7 whisky and 7 Up, garnished with a lemon wedge). A highball is typically served in large straight-sided glass, for example, a highball glass or a Collins glass, with ice.

House Music is a style of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago, Illinois, USA. It was initially popularized in mid-1980s discothèques catering to the African-American[1] and Latino American, French and gay communities, first in Chicago, then in New York City, New Jersey, Detroit and Miami. It eventually reached Europe before becoming infused in mainstream pop and dance music worldwide.

'House' is strongly influenced by elements of soul- and funk-infused varieties of disco. House generally mimics disco's percussion, especially the use of a prominent bass drum on every beat, but may feature a prominent synthesizer bassline, electronic drums, electronic effects, funk and pop samples, and reverb- or delay-enhanced vocals.

(or night club or club) is a drinking, dancing and entertainment venue which does its primary business after dark. A nightclub is usually distinguished from bars, pubs or taverns by the inclusion of a dance floor and a DJ booth, where a DJ plays recorded dance and pop music.

Proof (Alcoholic) Alcoholic proof is a measure of how much alcohol (i.e., ethanol) is contained in an alcoholic beverage. In the United States it is defined as twice the percentage of alcohol by volume, and has caused some people to question the necessity of dual labeling. In the United Kingdom, the proof-to-ABV ratio is 7:4. For example, in the U.S., 100-proof whiskey contains 50% alcohol by volume; 86-proof whiskey contains 43% alcohol.

Stripper is an erotic or exotic dancer in who gradually undresses, either partly or completely, in a seductive and sexually suggestive manner. Many communities prohibit total nudity. Regulations are often combined with liquor regulations ... for example total nudity is not allowed if liquor is served by the establishment.

Techno is a form of electronic dance music (EDM) that emerged in Detroit, Michigan, USA during the mid to late 1980s. The first recorded use of the word techno, in reference to a genre of music, was in 1988. Many styles of techno now exist, but Detroit techno is seen as the foundation upon which a number of subgenres have developed.

Trance is a style of electronic dance music that developed in the 1990s. Trance music is generally characterized by a tempo of between 130 and 155 BPM (FAST), short melodic synthesizer phrases, and a musical form that builds up and down throughout a track. Trance can be understood as a combination of many forms of electronic music such as industrial, techno, and house.

Whiskey Sour
is a famous mixed drink containing Bourbon whiskey, lemon juice, sugar, and optionally a dash of egg white to make it a Boston Sour. It is shaken and served either straight or over ice. The traditional garnish is half an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

Wine is an alcoholic beverage typically made of fermented grape juice.[1] The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients.[2] Wine is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast. Yeast consumes the sugars found in the grapes and converts them into alcohol. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts are used depending on the type of wine being produced.

Wine cooler is an alcoholic beverage made from wine and fruit juice, often in combination with a carbonated beverage and sugar.
