Meatpacking District, New York –
Located in the historically hip Meatpacking District, Simyone Lounge – or “SL” as the in-crowd calls it – is a sleek and sexy hotspot popular with models, socialites, and affluent businessmen.
Once past the velvet ropes, the attractive and fashionable clientele passes through a black mirrored entrance and into the front bar, a chic hangout featuring a few tables and banquettes, eerily illuminated by an impressive installation of backlit beveled glass bricks and X-ray screens that line most of the wall space.
Mirrored ceilings offer yet another surface in which the statuesque patrons can check out their impeccable reflections or scope out the other guests as they wait for their pricey cocktails.
Those who want an even more exclusive vibe can make their way through the brick arch to the back room, where plenty of tables accommodate bottle service, ice buckets are never empty, and a DJ caters to the patrons dancing on the black leather couches.
The epitome of a chichi “models and bottles” lounge – and the women definitely outnumber the men here – SL is nonetheless a vibrant locale where the beautiful people meet to dance, chat, and mingle into the wee hours.
Chic and sophisticated models, socialites, Wall Street types, and occasional celebs, 20s to 30s.
Nightly DJ spins a mix of hip-hop and pop.
Upstairs restaurant Abe and Arthur’s provides catering for special events.
Beer $8, wine $12+, cocktails $15+, bottle service $400+.
Dress to impress. For men, suits, button-downs, and slacks. For women, Herve Leger, designer cocktail dresses, and Louboutin heels.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are the most popular nights, but the venue draws a good crowd every night it’s open.
The restaurant Abe and Arthur’s (409 West 14th Street) is directly above SL and is the perfect spot for a late dinner before a night of drinks and dancing.
