The upstairs at Flash
is a cozy box with a bar at one end, a DJ booth at the other, and a fair amount of open space in between. The club typically features dance music, especially house. But anybody could be forgiven for swerving into the middle of that room, finding the pocket where the Funktion One soundsystem is best calibrated, and just standing there. Nobody should do this on purpose if everybody else is dancing, because that would be uncool. But if nobody else is dancing, the act of simply listening makes perfect sense.
