The Patio at the Union of Westport

421 Westport Road

The Union's patio is hidden but it's no secret. To reach it, you enter the bar at street level, then descend a flight of stairs, then cross the whole of the club's cavernous basement. The space is unremarkable, just a rectangular slab of concrete sunk below neighboring Westport businesses. But on prime nights, it's electric out there. One way to tell is the extra doorman sitting just inside the patio — it's a breeze to get inside the Union, but it's one in, one out if you want to dance on the patio. What's going on out there? Electronic music, bass drops, taut bodies, cigarette smoking. The tattoos-and-tank-tops crowd intersecting with some Greek Life types. A sweaty gathering of young people, in other words — and a growing allegiance to locally thrown parties like Body2Body, MVMNT and the Bassment. It'll be a cold winter without it, but come spring, we'll be back in the groove.
