Meatpacking District, New York –
Gone from the scene for four years following a landlord dispute, The Double Seven reopened a few blocks from its former location in late 2011, bringing the same attention to intimate lounging and highly crafted cocktailing as it did in the original.
Walking through the imposing brass doors, former patrons will recognize the long golden tunnel that’s been recreated behind the entryway – that is, if these former patrons still have what it takes to get past the velvet ropes.
Designed to accommodate just under two hundred guests, the club’s über-exclusivity is all but guaranteed. Nonetheless, the vibe inside is resolutely mellow, with low music, nary a scantily clad house dancer in sight, and good-looking patrons sipping original cocktails designed by famed mixologist Sasha Petraske.
Staid or not, there’s definitely no shortage of toned girls in Louboutins and short shorts perched at the embossed bar, as well as large groups of moneyed men in trendy rocker-esque attire lounging on crocodile banquettes as they eye the ladies across the crimson floor.
The energy boosts after midnight when DJs turn up the volume on Brazilian beats and festive, non-traditional club mixes, while girls shake their perfect things beneath the glow of wilting glass sculptures.
Promising a refined club experience with lots of A-listers, The Double Seven brings old-school sensibility to the Meatpacking District. It’s the kind of club with lots of pricey champagne, sure, but with no need for sparklers.
Models, fashionistas, socialites, celebrities, industry insiders, musicians, Euro playboys, early 20s to early 30s.
DJs play an eclectic mix of mostly 80s and 90s retro with some Brazilian beats and mash-ups, usually starting around midnight.
Table reservations sometimes available based on size of party, but are granted on a case-by-case basis.
Beer $9–$12, cocktails $18–$20, wine $18–$20/glass or $150–$1000+/bottle, champagne $18–$20/glass or $175–$2550+/bottle, bottle service $400+.
Dressy to rocker chic: plaid button-downs, floral Paul Smith, John Varvatos collars, designer jeans, seersucker blazers, Nantucket reds, ascots, pocket squares, dark mini dresses, leather short shorts, highest Louboutins and Alexander Wangs.
Thursday through Saturday nights to hang with folks looking to party a little harder than the midweek audience, or Tuesdays for a big local crowd.
Just steps away is Villa Pacri (55 Gansevoort Street), a five-story chateau of swanky Italian eats.
