The first entirely “green” club in New York, Greenhouse is a sprawling dance venue and lounge whose ever-changing lineup of DJs and musical genres attracts everyone from fashionable club kids on hip-hop nights, affluent hipsters on the weekends, and a gay-and-more scene for wild parties featuring performers, drag queens, and a parade of costumed patrons.

Also the site of fashion shows, magazine parties, and A-list events, the club draws its share of models, financiers, and celebs whose antics are destined for Page Six.

A 6,000-square-foot bi-level space, the venue boasts a stunning wonderland décor punctuated by five thousand crystal LED stalactite lights whose phosphorescent purple-to-green glow illuminates the bamboo walls and floors of the main room.

In keeping with the green theme, the DJ booth is powered by wind and overlooks multilevel lounge areas, where stylish bottle service groups gather on sustainable leather banquettes and occasionally dance on the recycled glass atriums that serve as tables.

While the spacious upper level may be conducive to chatting and mingling, the lower level is all about serious dancing. Long and narrow, the dark cave-like space is bookended by a DJ booth and bar and features walls and ceiling completely covered in leaves, eerily lit in purple and green to give the sensation of dancing in an enchanted forest.

Considering the club’s magnificent design, it’s no surprise that A-listers and club goers alike flock in for charity-driven special events, though outer-borough partiers pack in just as often for fun-driven nights on the town. And with its remote but accessible location, Greenhouse is the perfect spot for being bad while doing good.

Tip from Adriana:

If Greenhouse is environmentally responsible in its construction, then that must mean we’re environmentally responsible for choosing to drink here – that must count for something!

  • Crowd

    Depends on the night, but generally a range of young professionals, well-dressed clubbers, bottle service groups, outer-borough partiers, finance types, models, New York notables, celebs, and Euros, 20s to 40s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Different DJ and musical genre every night including house, hip-hop, and techno. Vandam Sundays is an all-out party featuring cheap drinks, performers, drag queens, costumed patrons, and celebs. Check the website for events and DJ schedule.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Stilettos and short-short BCBG and Bebe skirts for girls and shiny shoes and pressed shirts for guys. Anything goes on Sundays.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Vandam Sundays for the extravagant all-night party, Tuesdays for the A-list hip-hop parties and big-name DJs, and Fridays and Saturdays for a packed crowd.

  • Close By

    For a loungier experience with a similar clientele, Kastel (Trump SoHo, 246 Spring Street) is just down the street, though the door can be tricky.

Good Times!

Dopeness. Long lines are expected, but if you make the wait to enter the leaf-decadent palace, this high-end club is sure to deliver a funktafied night. Two floors and a hybrid of Techno and Hip-hop music makes great for diverse or eclectic taste. Albeit, make sure to know ahead of time what kind of night Greenhouse is hosting before you string along your divergent group of friends. The downstairs level tends to be less busier and is where the bathrooms are located. Might be a little crowded, but still super fun.
MAD FUN

Other than the very long line and waits, once you get in this place is bumping. The mix of upstairs and downstairs, rap music to techno is awesome. Because it is not a massive place it won't ever seem empty and you'll have a good night. It is not one of the most up-scale clubs, but you will never regret going.
What couldn't I say about this club...
Risa C. Dec 9, 2012
I've been here so many times I don't think this text box could fit all the stories I have to tell about this place. For one, last time I walked in here I was immediately given a comp admission ticket which is pretty sweet. Then as I walked through the doors I heard someone complain that their girl friends weren't getting comps to which the doorman responded "Big girls aren't getting comps." Keep in mind that this is the place that had a lawsuit within a year of opening for discriminating against black people - another discrimination suit can't be far behind. And also keep in mind that this is the way most clubs in the city work - just most doormen aren't stupid enough to say something like that out loud. Once inside the decor makes me feel like just staring at things and just yelling "oooooh shiny things!" As far as the crowd - it varies. Make sure you know ahead of time what kind of party it is. I've been here for hip-hop night, house night, mixed format night, and gay night. You really never know what to expect. Consistently though, the music is always good and danceable and there will always be girls dancing on the couches. There will always be 80% of the patrons at tables with bottle services. And there will always be drunk people dancing in the few open spaces that aren't reserved for bottle service. If you need some air this is also the downstairs area which tends to be less busy but still has it's own DJ, and its also where the bathrooms are located in case you need those too. Bottom line, there are better upscale clubs in the city but this one has relatively easier entrance (I know this is contrary to my first paragraph but it's true) than most of the clubs in the city - come here if you're unsure of where else to go, but if you have an in at another club you should probably take it.
Big Fun

Anytime you go to a NYC nightclub, be prepared to deal with the doorman unless you have a promoter/hookup. That said, I've come here on Halloween, on gay nights, with a promoter, without a promoter, and I've had a blast almost every single time. When you come with a promoter (which I HIGHLY recommend), you get free drinks, a VIP spot to chill for a minute and come and go as you please, and you *don't have to wait at the door*. You definitely get your too-cool-for-school types hanging around VIP, but I've found the main dance floor to be pretty hospitable to your average club kid, especially on Halloween and gay nights, with Top 40 and house music, then hip hop downstairs. I love it as an alternative to the Meatpacking scene. More inclusive.
long line, overcrowded

I went here with a group of girlfriends and waited in line for at least 50 minutes. It wrapped around the corner! The good news is that this is definitely a popular place. The bad news is that it was completely packed inside. So cramped and so hot! The music was almost entirely hip hop. It's just not for me.
