SoHo, New York –
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.
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.
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.
Cover charge $20+/Th–Sa. Beer $9+, wine $9+, cocktails $12+, mixed drinks $12+, shots 12+, bottle service $375+.
Stilettos and short-short BCBG and Bebe skirts for girls and shiny shoes and pressed shirts for guys. Anything goes on Sundays.
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.
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.
