SWAY'S FIRST ANNIVERSARY
5 p.m. Sway. $5.
Across Central Arkansas there are approximately 547 million sports bars — loud, smoky places where you can watch the game, devour a giant stack of hot wings and quaff cheap domestic beer gallon by watery gallon. But there aren't nearly as many clubs that cater to the discerning urban sophisticate.
Along with a handful of other newer venues, Sway has helped to fill a niche, offering a club atmosphere that's considerably more refined than most other bars in the region. Think dress codes, high-end mixed drinks and DJs playing modern R&B, electronic and dance music.
To celebrate its first year, Sway hosts a party with live music from Jason Greenlaw, Buddafli and Shea Marie, specialty cocktails, floral arrangements and a dressed-up atmosphere. Business casual attire is required.
