SKKY is a dance club located at 1928 11th Avenue South on the top floor of the Studio Arts Building at Five Points South. It opened in December 2014 as a re-branding of the former Bacchus club owned by Leesa Warren, great-granddaughter of developer Newman Waters. Dan Cooper is the owner of the business.

The club is marketed as a "plush lounge" with eight semi-private "VIP lounge" booths overlooking Five Points circle which can be reserved for parties of up to 10 people.

After several incidents of violence at the nightclub over the course of the summer of 2017 the Birmingham City Council initiated hearings in September to declare the business a public nuisance and force it to close.
