Grooving to the beat is all well and good and all, but sometimes when the music burrows deep into your veins, there's only one way to unleash that energy...and that is to get down on it, shake your bombon and boogie. Houston is filled with a plethora of dance meccas, where our fellow citizens go to forget the stress of life and get sweaty on the dance floor, one club anthem at a time.

In order to create this list, we pulled from our own experience of covering the nightlife scene in the H, and also surveyed our social-media friends for their input in order to create a more well rounded selection. Thus, we present to you Houston's Top 10 Dance Clubs 2014.

10. LIMELIGHT
Sticky Promo has made the valiant attempt to bring back the glory of the former Rich's in Midtown with great success. Whether you hit up Twerk Thursdays, Electric Fridays, or Devious Saturdays, you have your choice of dancing everything from EDM to Hip-Hop alongside your favorite Houston Rocket, Kardashian, or Instagram model of the week.

9. MIDTOWN DRINKERY
Although Friday and Saturday nights are over the top with bros and sorority girls, the Midtown Drinkery, the place redeems itself with one of the most amazing Monday nights you will ever encounter. The Booth Pimps DJ collective holds it down with a nonstop mixing of styles and genres that keeps the floor packed and sweaty.

8. CLUB TROPICANA
Consistently one of the best Latin clubs in the city, Club Tropicana has recently been renovated and is breathing new life into as Houston's premier salsa club. Tuesday is Ladies Night which includes DJ Gonzo in the mix and free salsa lessons. Orquesta Kadente gets the floor hot on Tropical Thursdays. Noches De Rumba continues with Orquesta Mi Rumba on Friday, and then the week rounds off with Tumbao Clasico on Saturday with Noches de Sabor.

Stereo Live isn't a dance club, it's a venue and one of the worst in Houston at that. /thread

Well you obviously aren't PLUR. Fighting about it. I stated my opinion about not liking people who stare at me constantly when I do finally find a spot to dance.

No dancing....= not a DANCE club.... At Stereo you don't dance...you get pushed and can't move.....

The beauty of Stereo is that everyone comes together PLUR, non PLUR, people who dance and people who don't. PEACE!!!

People run over you or are so screwed up that they are trying to have sex with any person around them. It's shoulder to shoulder and I never am comfortable there with all of the eyes glued on me when I do manage to get enough room to dance

They may have the best djs from around the world come there but the people there do not dance. Stereo Live is basically a concert venue that claims to be PLUR. The lights are great, the music is great but the people who attend aren't really a part of the scene. They are simply people who want to see what it is like.... The real PLUR club is Kryptonite. So you thinking that Stereo Live is the best discredits you.

You have to experience it to understand it. Let's start with saying that they bring in the hottest DJ's from around the world. Then let's say that they are constantly upgrading the sound system and Stereo Live also has a huge LED screen were they play videos to sweeten the dancing experience but above all there is always a great vibe of dancing, life and togetherness. PLUR LIFE! Peace out!!

I'm sorry friend, I mean no disrespect, but I've never been to stereo live. Can you tell me why it's Houston's #1 nightclub and who gave it that rating? Cheers!

I miss Rich's. I use to go there pretty much every weekend. I frequented Numbers too, although sometimes I wonder if I might have been too old for that place.

The fact that you don't even mention Stereo live nightclub ( the number 1 nightclub in Houston) discredits your biased ratings on clubs. That's all.

Actually, I visit Stereo Live often, as a concert venue. I've had some of my best nights as a photographer/music writer there.
