Lower East Side, New York –
The Delancey provides hipsters and hops chasers with a three-floor hang that features a gritty rock venue, an intimate night club, and a rooftop bar with breathtaking views of the Williamsburg Bridge, all tucked into an unassuming nook on the Lower East Side.
Once past the imposing, but not impossible doorman, laid-back partiers spill into the main lounge and club area, where groups of skinny-jeaned professionals opt for the reserved leather benches by the open front windows or settle into the VIP alcove beneath the Victorian chandeliers, sipping cocktails as the DJ spins chill pop jams.
Downstairs, low-maintenance rockers and tattooed scene girls slouch on plush black couches in the narrow basement venue, chatting over Stellas as indie rock and punk bands take to the small stage.
Patrons looking for a sleeker vibe need only head two stories up to the urban oasis of the rooftop garden, where stylish crews of party girls and successful business types relax on white chaises and flirt beneath the tropical palms. The garden’s retractable roof and stunning views make it a year-round destination for private parties and public revelry alike.
Club kids, party girls, successful hipsters, well-off creative professionals, and edgy partiers, 20s to 30s.
Live bands playing indie, alternative, and rock downstairs. DJs spin chill beats, hip-hop, R&B, and pop on the main floor and the rooftop.
