Imagine Bill Murray getting down when DJ Snake commands Encore Beach Club’s nighttime finale. Earlier this month, video surfaced of the actor dancing to the Lil Jon collaboration “Turn Down for What” at a birthday dinner. Given Murray’s recent string of party crashing, we’ll just keep our fingers crossed and phones at the ready. (At Encore, 10:30 p.m., EncoreBeachClub.com.)
