Out in Anne Arbor, a short drive from metro Detroit, Necto was formerly the Nectarine Ballroom but it’s received a much needed facelift. The centre point is still the large dance floor with the dark, low-ceiling tunnel bar area adjacent, but the floors have been retiled, the walls painted and a new bar added at the top of the stairs. If the hi-tech sound and swish interior seem fancy, the music is as cutting edge as ever: various types of electronica played by name DJs and occasionally featuring the likes of local hero techno guru Kevin Saunderson. For all the style, the regulars are fun and laid back, staff are friendly, and prices reasonable: before 11pm you can get bargain Long Islands. Order a double dude!
