Phoenix New Times's Description
Like a mash-up of reception hall and dive bar, Furia Musical is a trippy dancing and drinking scene decked out in mirrors and a black-and-white checkerboard floor. Crazy-loud Latin music blasts its way out of a powerful sound system, pulsating past an illuminated crescent moon that hangs over the dance floor, chairs and tables draped in black cloth, and up to a small, bright corner bar where old-school amigos down a dizzying array of cheap beer and cocktails from friendly barkeeps. A big-screen TV sits in the corner of the dance area while a second room (separated by Roman columns and white sheer curtains) houses two pool tables, a jukebox, and a vending machine selling bottled waters wrapped with a pack of smokes for eight bucks. If select nights of live bands, DJs, and concursos de tubo (pole-dancing contests) don't get the heart pumping, try a trip to one of the Furia's restrooms. The men's is like a closet of urinals, and in the ladies', you've got five stalls, one curtain, and two seats. Sure it's a little freaky, but at Furia Musical, it's all in good fun.
