Party Earth Review The Hudson Hotel’s stone fortress façade and single flickering torch over the neon green door give no hint of the whimsical complex of bars inside, but after beaming up from the foyer via two phosphorescent escalators, the upscale clientele will find a playground of drinking options and parties. The ... more

Party Earth Review It’s not hard to see how Webster Hall came to be known as the first modern nightclub – since its inception back in 1886, this multilevel space has shown a chameleon-like ability to transform from dance hall to live music venue or from hip-hop hangout to salsa palace.

With thousands upon thousands of nightlife destinations packed inside its boundaries, New York is home to a lifetime of drinking dens, and that certainly holds true when thinking about all the lounges in New York.
There’s a NYC lounge out there for everyone, whether they’re looking to get gussied up and hang with big money makers or throw on a ragged t-shirt and chill on a sofa that hasn’t been cleaned since New York was called New Amsterdam. And the great thing about New York is its physical makeup promises all manner of lounge in almost every neighborhood.
The swanky Meatpacking District, known the world over for its see-and-be-seen air, is home to lounges where the brand of shoes you’re wearing may be as equally important as the number of zeroes in your bank statement. The glitz is equally prevalent in Chelsea and Nolita, where finance gurus and socialites hide from the common man and lounge about in style before hitting the clubs.
A grittier concentration of NYC lounges is undoubtedly in Brooklyn – home to the most prevalent DIY scene – while student-friendly dive lounges are also easy to find in Murray Hill and hipster heavy Greenwich Village.
Finding a NYC lounge will not be difficult, and if the first one you find doesn’t entice, a hundred more New York lounges are probably minutes away.
