Meatpacking District, New York –
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.
Affluent Europeans, people from the music and club industry, house music lovers, and model types, mostly 20s and early 30s.
House, hip-hop, and mash-ups on Tuesdays, house on Thursdays through Saturdays.
Cover charge $20+. Beer $8+, mixed drinks $15+, bottle service $250+.
Cocktail dresses for women and button-downs with slacks for guys.
Fridays and Saturdays are usually the most popular, but Tuesdays and Thursdays are great for weeknight parties. Summer weekends often draw a crowd from the outer boroughs.
Tenjune (26 Little West 12th Street) around the block has a similar crowd and no cover charge.
