Party Earth Sullivan Room Review

The Scene

Sullivan Room in New York's Greenwich Village is a loud underground club dedicated to house. Get ready to dance late in New York with Party Earth.

Underground music seekers in Greenwich enjoy a subterranean savior at Sullivan Room, where the DJs rarely sway from a lineup of house, house, a little techno…

…and more house.

Anyone loitering outside the unassuming metal doors right at 10pm will probably find the place deserted, but by midnight a swarm of club kids have scampered past the psychedelic portrait of a woman above the narrow stairs and into the hidden party beneath.

The open room touts few fancy trappings save for a couple of bottle service areas along two sides of the dance floor, itself dotted with fake stone pillars that give the eclectic sea of revelers something to lean on if they’ve had one too many customarily overpriced club drinks.

Scattered paintings could have been pulled from the cover of some cheesy romantic novel – dashing knights on galloping steeds, packs of angry wolves – but nobody comes to this unpretentious hall to look at the art, especially considering the Core Audio sound system has a bass beat that could dislodge a blood clot.

DJs cover the gamut from big names on the UK scene to local up-and-comers, and though Fridays and Saturdays naturally host the week’s biggest acts, the Funk Box event on Sundays and rotating soul nights throughout the month (Sundays too, as well as first Fridays) are regular fixtures that draw solid crowds.

Simple but satisfying, Sullivan Room is for people who want to party late in an intimate space with folks who care more about dancing than décor.

Tip from Jonah:

Don’t be afraid to haggle at the door. This is the kind of place where you can usually talk down a cover charge. If the DJ scheduled is someone you really want to hear, though, don’t push your luck too far. Opt instead to buy cheaper advance tickets online.

  • Crowd

    An eclectic mix of house music enthusiasts, college partiers, a few Jersey Shore lookalikes, soul music fans, and anyone looking for a club more intimate than nearby Webster Hall, early 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Nightly DJs focus primarily on house and trance.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No food.

    Tickets may be purchased in advance through wantickets.com and clubtickets.com.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $15–$25 depending on night, guy at door, sex of patron, alignment of Jupiter. Beer $7–$8, cocktails $8–$11, bottle service $175+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual to clubby: t-shirts, jeans, collared shirts, midriff-baring tops, comfortable skirts.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any night a DJ of interest mans the decks, with Fridays and Saturdays promising the longest lines, priciest cover, and biggest crowds down below, or Sundays to bring on the funk.

  • Close By

    Historic Cafe Wha? (115 MacDougal Street) offers a full menu and a more relaxed environment to catch some live music.

Sullivan Room is an eccentric hallucination of house music carnivale
Mike C. Apr 26, 2013
I knew from the first second I stood outside the door that I was in for a wild night. This place is misleading, like many of the best spots in NY. It's quiet on the outside but completely wild on the inside. The cover was $20, so my best friend who happens to be Asian asked the bouncer if he could take a peak to see if it was worth the cash. 5 minutes later, Wilson emerged nodding his head, with a shit eating grin on his face and said "ohhhhhhhh yea it's worth it." Naturally I followed because Asians know good house music. We proceeded to check our coats ($5) and enter this wild abandoned meat locker full of shirtless sweaty break dancers with glow sticks. This place was just completely nuts, like that scene in "The Matrix" when Neo meets that one bitch for the first time. This is the kind of place you can kind of see anything happen, like bare chested women and cartoon characters that aren't even there, at any given time. Just don't wear a jacket because you're going to sweat your reproductive parts into a puddle of goo. It's hot in there boy.
