The Scene

Fashionistas looking for a place to wear their killer heels will want to totter over to Southside, an upscale nightclub promising a high-energy night out to the few lucky souls who survive the bouncer test.

Fashionistas looking for a place to wear their killer heels will want to totter over to Southside, an upscale nightclub promising a high-energy night out to the few lucky souls who survive the bouncer test.

Popular with rich kids and affluent neighborhood artists, models, and fashion industry types, the space features a warm décor of tufted leather booths and black subway tiles offset by the softer touches of fern wallpaper and scattered potted plants.

Chic young professionals and former prep-schoolers hang out by the DJ station in the middle of the floor to check out the well-to-do party girls breaking into dance, or congregate on the banquettes for some loud conversation over expensive cocktails.

Little loveseat cubbyholes carved into the black-tiled walls provide cozy spots for couples to enjoy table service, while other Prada-wearing creatives looking for a respite from the crowd take refuge in the somewhat private alcove in the back of the room.

With a solid mix of hip-shaking and mingling among its fashionable and frolicsome clientele, Southside always maintains an air of excitement and is bearing the load in helping revive the underground NYC dance party.

Tip from Adriana:

When you call for reservations, request one of the tables in the slightly isolated alcove near the bar – that way, you and your friends can have a little privacy from the crowd.

  • Crowd

    Fashion industry types, affluent SoHo artists, models, young professionals, and privileged former prep-school kids during the week, with more outer-borough folks on the weekends, early 20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Nightly DJ spins indie, rock, and 80s on Wednesdays, house on Thursdays, and dancy pop and rock on Fridays and Saturdays.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Table reservations recommended on weekends, with a one-bottle minimum. Coat check. Cell phone boosters.

  • Prices

    Beer $8+, cocktails $15+, bottle service minimum $450+/one bottle. Coat check $4.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Artsy casual to dressy: button-downs, polos, skinny jeans, and fedoras for guys, and stylish leggings, flowy tops, skirts, dresses, and very high heels for women.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursdays for the busiest scene and biggest crowd of artists and fashion types. Fridays and Saturdays for more weekend debauchery.

  • Close By

    Just down the street is the chic and exclusive GoldBar (389 Broome Street) with a similar crowd and great DJ dance music.

I consider myself pretty well versed in night yet somehow this place eluded my knowledge for quite a while before I actually heard about it. Located on a dead street where its not uncommon to see someone sleeping on a subway grate while you're waiting in line, I never would've known about this place if my friend hadn't dragged me along one night. Once inside (the door can be tricky if you don't have a table or don't know someone) the whole vibe is very confusing in a good way. There's weird palm tree-esque wallpaper behind chic black leather couches. Girls look like they rolled out of bed, shot gunned on some red lipstick, but everything is expensive and designer. People are dancing sexy interpretive dance or just chilling on the back of the couch with a drink. But underlying everything, everyone is having a good time doing their own thing. I can't really put this place into any kind of cubbyhole, but if you're looking for a unique night out definitely check it out.
