Every night should be ladies night, and these dance clubs must feel the same way if they dedicate one special Friday or Saturday night to all the women seeking to groove to hip-swaying music while hanging out with their best girlfriends.

The Sunday Night Dance Party with DJ Larry Rodriguez,  a.k.a the Flower Vato, has been jammin’ off the hinges for more then 10 years and is definitely a destination for a ladies night out. DJ Larry has been a Sacramento staple since the early ’90s and carries an arsenal of upbeat, hip-swaying good tunes that range from R&B, hip-hop, dance, funk and much more. Together, DJ Larry and the Press Club make each Sunday evening affair a safe haven for all women with its recent vow to escort any person from its club that harasses or intimidates any woman just trying to dance and have a good time. So, feel free to let loose to the tunes of Earth, Wind & Fire, ’90s hip-hop, and all the funk those pumps can handle.
