Midtown, New York –
When one of the hottest clubs in Las Vegas opens a New York location, elite partygoers expect nothing less than the biggest, brightest, and most over-the-top venue – and that’s exactly what Lavo delivers.
Throngs of in-the-know partiers start lining up early for the chance to spend the night rubbing shoulders with celebrities, models, and corporate head honchos in the extravagant space, which features a rich décor of copper and brown accents.
Those who make it past the impossible door are shown into the swanky single-room disco full of well-tailored gentlemen and willowy young ladies going wild on the dance floor to the DJ’s mix of house, hip-hop, and pop.
Socialites and A-listers enjoy bottle service from the dark leather sofas around the perimeter, while the highest rollers survey the action from the elevated VIP area.
Scantily-clad performers undulate on small stages as disco balls and chandeliers throw dots of reflected color over the chic but sweaty crowd hip-shaking on the floor or clamoring around the two bars for a bit of refreshment.
If the nighttime parties don’t satisfy, fashionable patrons can check out Lavo’s restaurant on Saturday mornings, when a drunken, bass-pumping party brunch gets the scenesters dancing on tables and chairs to start the day off right.
Living up to the hype of its original location, Lavo delivers the lights, glitz, glamour, and sex appeal of a Vegas party with a touch of New York chic.
Celebrities, models, entertainment industry professionals, entrepreneurs, and socialites, mid-20s to late 30s.
DJ spins nightly and during brunch Saturdays 1:30–5pm. Occasional celebrity guest DJs, which have included Tiësto.
Italian fare served in the restaurant, including brick oven pizza, linguine with seafood, risotto, and veal parmigiano.
Cover charge $20. Appetizers $14+, entrées $24+. Beer $10+, wine $15+, cocktails $18+, bottle service $1,500/8 people.
Dressy: designer suits and dresses, Louboutin heels.
Thursday through Saturday nights for a packed crowd in the lounge, and Saturdays for brunch in the restaurant.
Lavo’s upstairs restaurant is a good option for a pre-club dinner, though dining there does not guarantee entrance to the lounge.
