The Scene

Boasting one of the best sound systems in the Meatpacking District, Kiss & Fly is a sexy club catering to a well-heeled international clientele looking to let loose to ear-splitting electronic and house music.

Boasting one of the best sound systems in the Meatpacking District, Kiss & Fly is a sexy club catering to a well-heeled international clientele looking to let loose to ear-splitting electronic and house music.

Jet-setters who make it past the door find themselves in an elegant oval room reminiscent of a Roman amphitheater, complete with arches, columns, and a graceful domed ceiling painted to recall the Sistine Chapel.

Combining a bit of history with seductive red lighting and a modern décor of leather banquettes, sculpted wood walls, and whimsical wallpaper, Kiss & Fly manages to create a decadent atmosphere where the unrelenting bass from the center DJ booth envelops the stunning model types undulating on the scattered mini-stages and the crowd of rich Euros and music industry folk beating up the beat beneath them.

While most of the gorgeous patrons opt for bottle service in the elevated VIP seating areas – also prime locations for checking out the drunken frenzy on the dance floor – those who make their way to the small ivy-covered bar will find skilled bartenders flipping and spinning bottles as they prepare some expensive cocktails.

Definitely not for timid types, Kiss & Fly is a high-energy club whose early-evening lounge vibe soon gives way to a bumping and grinding dance scene where anything can happen.

Tip from Adriana:

If you reserve a table, request one in the VIP Lounge Ring. It’s the perfect location to see and be seen, but removed enough to keep you from the beat-pumping masses on the dance floor.

  • Crowd

    Affluent Europeans, people from the music and club industry, house music lovers, and model types, mostly 20s and early 30s.

Great Music, Fun Vibe, Overall Great Night
Erik A. Jan 23, 2013
Walking into Kiss and Fly was as close to a dream as you can get. The Art Nouveau architecture mixed with a modern flare allowed for an open setting to dance to the rhythm of the night. As far as drink price and cover charge is concerned, try your best to ask around or scout for a promotor. If there is a possibility of getting a table, ladies bring friends and I'm sure you should be okay. Gentlemen, most likely than not you probably will have to pay a cover charge. But I like to think of it this way: if you are going to pay for drinks anyway, your cover charge will pay for itself in the end if you are at a table with your friends. As for the music, I personally love pop remixes, mashups, anything with a good beat and words. Sometimes you run into the problem of a club endlessly playing songs that melt together into what sounds like a remix of "Sandstorm". That being said, the remixes were an even mix of pop music and fun techno beats. The acoustics of the club and location of speakers allowed the sound to flow evenly throughout; so do not fear you will be able to hear by the end of the night. All in all, Kiss and Fly was a great way to spend my Saturday night. Yes, it is a little pricey; but hey for a night of flashing lights, my favorite hits remixed, and spending a night at one of the best clubs in the Meatpacking District, it is well worth it. Be a Social Butterfly, choose Kiss and Fly.
Good music....interesting crowd

The best thing about Kiss and Fly is their sound system. Hands down one of the best in the city. The second best thing is their bartenders if you happen to catch them with a down moment and they're doing the whole "Cocktail" things and flinging and flipping the bottle back and forth. The third best thing is the decor which with its circular decor makes it conducive for dancing, but also ensures that for bottle service almost all table are created equal. The worst thing about Kiss and Fly is their crowd. I don't know if it's the building because I have a similar opinion of RDV but I really get a hit or miss crowd here. On certain nights I've been and it's a models and bottles kind of night. Music is bumping and everyones dancing with champagne in their hands. Other nights I've been and run into my friend's little sisters (still under 21) and everyone is drinking long island iced teas or water and has that crazy look in their eye. Bottom line, if you come for bottle come with a big group of friends so you don't have to mingle if you don't want to. Or come as a stop in on a MPD club crawl because you may have a great time...or not.
LOVE Kiss & Fly

NYC's meatpacking district is arguably the most fun clubbing I've had ever. As an LA Native, I find this spot in NY enchanting and extremely fun for dining in clubbing. Kiss & Fly is one of my favorite spots, and every time I'm in the city I make sure to have a night out here. Nicely located by other super fun clubs like Tenjune, this is the perfect spot to head to after a great dinner for some dancing. However, it is good to note for guys that it is especially difficult to get in with out waiting in a line or paying a cover, unless you know someone, or have a table. Girls have an easier time but unless you know a promoter you may have to wait in line and pay a cover. Luckily I have friends in high places so I always walk in with my girls with no charge and no wait! Usually you can find a promoter wandering around nearby who are really handy when trying to get in quickly :) Attire is definitely dressy, heels/dresses. Seriously fabulous music and great, but expensive drinks. I've always gone on a Thursday or Saturday and both are equally as poppin'! Definitely hit up Kiss & Fly for a great time and meatpacking fun!
Not a Fly-By Night
Clarissa H. Nov 16, 2012
Kiss & Fly fits in with the meatpacking district after sunset aesthetic. When the area ditches its blue-collar mentality for a risqué edge each night, global jetsetters descend upon the uber-swanky club. Some temporarily detour from the nearby Soho House on 9th Avenue; others conquer the night and won’t surrender it until dawn. But if you don’t hobnob with any promoters, expect a cumbersome wait for access. The euphoria-inducing atmosphere was worth it on a Tuesday night. You’ll notice the oval-shaped club’s unofficial magnum opus: the Colosseum inspired decor complete with Roman columns and a dome ceiling. And the ostentatious, yet dashing fashionistas and European high-rollers are eye-catching. I discovered some lively flair bartenders and “The Temple,” mother of all V.I.P areas with a gazebo, thrones and swing. Then I hit the strobe lit dance floor, with hopes to see the sought after stilt walkers and fire throwers featured on select nights. The real plug, though, was the thumping sound system and house music. Usually, world-renowned spin masters like D.J.'s Stan Courtois craft an infectious dance party into the wee hours of the morning (I took a breather on the outdoor patio). But the expensive champagne didn’t quench my thirst, with the lowest priced Ayala Brut Majeur at $350. Most things, like the international crowd, are imported except for the city’s style mavens. But it was an electrifying experience for me. So if money is no object when it comes to potent libations, and you favor a showy, yet groove-drenched ambience, this is your place.
Ibiza this is not

As far as Meatpacking clubs go, Kiss & Fly is definitely not among my favorites. It does nothing to really make itself stand out. I'll echo what the other reviews say-- lots of rich Euro dudes sucking all the oxygen out of the room, so be prepared to arrive with a promoter to bypass the line, drink for free, and partake in the debauchery without spending any money. The guys can be grabby and the space is pretty small, so I recommend dancing on one of the many stages to get out of the fray. It's certainly not a bad night out, but it's kind of indistinguishable from a lot of the other fly by night clubs in that district, so I'll refrain from giving it any undeserved hype.
Guaranteed a good night!

I've only moved to New York three weeks ago but I've already made up my mind that Kiss & Fly is my favorite dancing spot in the city! Club interior is nice and the oval set up makes the small club feel open and just generally like a huge party all the time. One thing to keep in mind though is that there's only one bar so it can get kind of crowded there! Love the bartenders though! They're always doing tricks and having a good time. But everything aside, this club has GREAT music! If you've had a stressful week at work and just wanna dance it off to some bangin house music, this is the place to do it! tips: - this place only accepts cash for cover charge, so remember to bring $20 for girls, $30 for guys - club has a reputation for there being more guys than girls, depending on what your looking for at the club this could really work to your advantage! (or not!) - girls-- prepare to do alot of dancing so 6 inch heels is not necessary unless you're sitting at a table
Arguably the Sexiest Club in NY

I went to Kiss & Fly for the first time for my 22nd birthday this year, and it was outstanding! The beats were bumpin', drinks were flowing and the dancing was nonstop. It also has a conveniently located outdoor area for those of you who need a smoke break every once in a while or a more quiet place to talk to that classy lady you just met by the bar. My only warning would be that there is often a HUGE line to get in Gen Ad, so if you do plan to go in general definitely get there early. Otherwise, I would definitely suggest going with a group and getting bottle service or make sure you know/find a promoter in order to minimize your time spent waiting at the door.
