Party Earth Review The beat is hot and the dancing is hotter at Bembe, a lively but intimate bi-level nightspot that’s become a prime place for Latin dance fans to have a few and get feisty. Upstairs, the ethnically diverse crowd of curvy party girls and athletic hunks bump and grind between the backlit bar and the exposed brick walls hung ... more

Party Earth Review A former massage parlor that ended up on the wrong side of the law, the aptly named Happy Ending is now a rollicking little bar that has kept the irreverent attitude of its ill-fated predecessor. Despite the deceptive pink awning that reads “Health Club,” patrons know they’re in for a good time when they step into the long ... more

Party Earth Review Although a neon sign by the bar clearly states that “this is not a brothel – there are no prostitutes at this address,” first-time visitors to Mister H could be forgiven for thinking this opium-den-meets-swanky-lounge might still offer a little ill repute. The venue’s location in the luxurious Mondrian Soho doesn’t give ... more

Party Earth Review The brainchild of two childhood friends bent on creating the perfect rock club, White Noise mixes a chill dirty dive attitude with satanic decadence to form a Molotov cocktail of rock-and-roll spirit that’s sadly lacking in the downtown club scene.

Party Earth Review Located in the space formerly occupied by The Village Gate, (le) poisson rouge is an edgy club and music venue “serving art and alcohol” to a cool Greenwich Village crowd.

Party Earth Review Outsiders may wonder why so many young New Yorkers happily pay a $10 cover charge just to get into the somewhat seedy Mehanata Bulgarian Bar, but those in on the secret know that once inside, they’ll find a no-holds-barred pleasure palace where almost anything goes.

Clubs in New York offer some of the greatest partying in the country – maybe even the world – if only for the sheer number of them packed into this ridiculously buzzing metropolis.
Big dance clubs, intimate A-list clubs, gritty blues and jazz clubs, and certainly no shortage of twisted themed haunts help ensure this city couldn’t go to sleep even if it wanted to.
Lavish Meatpacking District nightclubs are the stuff of legend, with impenetrable lines and behemoth bouncers who are only swayed by that unforeseen golden hand that manages the guest list. Chelsea can be equally exclusive when it comes to nightlife, as can the underground hideaways in Nolita where Wall Street millionaires, trust-fund kids, and socialites reign supreme.
But like any city, New York clubs are open to almost anyone willing to play the part – and maybe grease the door guy – for the chance to buy twenty-dollar drinks and flaunt their designer duds on the dance floor. Despite all this, New York is indeed a melting pot, and there are an array of additional clubs that cater to everyone, from the hipper-than-thou set in Chinatown and the East Village to the crazy DIY clubs in Brooklyn, as well as the array of student-friendly clubs in Murray Hill and the Village around the NYU campus.
Finding a NYC club will not be difficult, though getting in might be. Leaving? Now why would you do that?
