Dinner & Dancing this Sat in Phoenix - Need Ideas

Any ideas on a place to go with my husband for a good dinner and some dancing in the Phx area this Sat? We;'ve been to Johny's Uptown but weren't impressed with the food or the entertainment. Any other spots? Has anyone been to Wrigley's Mansion?

Thanks!

    How about Barcelona? I've never actually eaten there, but I've heard the food's good, and they have a live band.

      About Barcelona -- I actually went there for the first time a few months ago when a friend decided to have her 40th birthday party there. Two observations:

      1) The food may be perfectly good, but there's no pretense of Spanish or Catalonian cuisine. There are two dining rooms: one a steakhouse and the other a sushi bar.

      2) The band is loud and mostly does covers of recent hip hop and pop. Expect Bell Biv Devoe, Vanilla Ice, etc. If you want to party like it's 1991, the band is actually pretty good, but don't expect to do any swing dancing or Fred Astaire moves.

      What about Voce? "Supper Club" with live music and dancing. Here's a link:

        Wrigley Mansion could be good, just depends on the crowd; I've never eaten there though, only drinks (definitely find out which band is playing). Barcelona (only been to N. Scottsdale) gets crazy the later it gets; again, no food experience there.

        Orbit Cafe/League of Our Own was perfect for this.
