East Village, New York –
Alphabet Lounge’s location a few blocks beyond the East Village’s throbbing club and bar scene gives this dance club and music venue an added air of exclusiveness.
Past the curtained windows and velvet rope, patrons will find a wide single room packed with dancing downtown party girls, upscale hip-hop types, and affluent entertainment professionals engaged in the venue’s favorite pastimes – namely, flirting good-naturedly over blaring rap remixes, cuddling on black leather banquettes, and making eyes at each other at the tiled bar seductively aglow with yellow lamps and candlelight.
Special events range from big private birthday parties to weekend-long 80s nights, complete with cheesy movies from the decade projected on a screen.
A railed-off elevated area houses a small VIP alcove and a DJ booth, hung with black-and-white photos of the neighborhood, where large groups of giggling girlfriends enjoy bottle service to a background of flashing strobe lights and thumping bass.
A stylish venue tempered with Greenwich Village funkiness, Alphabet Lounge is a cool local club staple in a dive-dominated neighborhood.
Classy young professionals, party girls, hip-hop fans, 80s fanatics, and birthday parties for club nights. Indie rockers, local musicians, and young arts professionals for live music nights, 20s to 30s.
