A fantastic sound system and decent dance floor, laser lights and go-go girls make it a popular choice for partying the night away.
Santo’s Party House
96 Lafayette Street - TriBeCa
This two-level club has different music on both floors, offering a change something for all, or just a change of pace midway through the night. Little or no cover and a good vibe make it a fun club with a good mix of folks. Early on the 18 and over crowd can party, but at some point it kicks up into a 21 and over club.
218 Sullivan St. - Greenwich Village
The opposite of glam, this unpretentious club is a great place for underground music. Low to no cover and hosting house and techno bashes that can’t be beat anywhere in the city. Local DJ’s as well as international names, beats that hit to the bone, and you can dance till you drop.
289 10th Ave - Chelsea
If you wanna dance the night away, Marquee not only has the over-the-top style and DJs you require, but a huge dance space as well. Hiphop Thursday are and the hottest night in the club. If you want to be sure to get in, you can pony up $650 for a table.
Kiss & Fly
409 W 13th St - Meatpacking District
Named for the airport drop-off, Kiss & Fly’s decor combines old-world opulence with 90’s excess. The door policy means the crowd is beautiful and the wildly pricey tabs mean that everyone parties like there is no tomorrow.
150 Varick Street - South Village
Thumping house music and bare decor make this underground dance house one of the most popular underground dance houses in New York. Decent prices, casual dress, folks show up to enjoy the enormous dance floor and the great mix of people and artists.
285 W. 12th Street
A townhouse hotel with club, Beatrice is tiny and about as exclusive as it gets in New York. Beauty, fame, or riches get you in, and once inside you can choose between a small upstairs dance floor or a lower lounge and bar.
17 Thompson St. - SoHo
A great location and 80s music on the weekends means there are always folks dancing at Naked Lunch. A very welcoming place, not too pricy, and an enjoyable night out for all.
