Southside is a lush, posh club in Nolita with great music and libations.
Bossa Nova Civic Club's a dance oasis in N Bushwick, featuring a sort of Miami-ish vibe, happy hour 'til 10p, DJs, and cocktails served with fresh juices.
Output is the quintessential Brooklyn dance club: a multi-level converted Williamsburg warehouse that draws an international roster of electro DJs who spin while the hoards sweat and sway. Capacity hovers just below 500, and expect it to be reached on weekend nights. The rooftop area delivers a much needed breath of fresh air when you just need to escape the bumping bodies.
Everything about this rooftop club atop Chelsea’s Dream Hotel is polished: the black leather couches, the well-heeled clientele, and the $19 cocktails like the vodka-based 50 Shades of Bleu and the tequila Strawberry Fields. DJs from around the world drop beats until 4 AM every night (except Sunday, when it closes at midnight), but definitely plan ahead as reservations are strongly recommended.
No. 8's got palm trees, lush decor, and libations that'll keep the Chelsea party going all... night... long.
Opened by the aging (33!) Marquee guy, Avenue's a grandiose, tri-level "gastro-lounge" centered around an Oriental-carpeted main drag flanked Parliament-style by undulating brown banquettes, and lorded over by a glass-lined mezzanine and vaulted ceilings
Marquee's a crazy club that boasts a very "robot spaceship" look, with neon lights and a dark interior that's sure to guarantee some wild nights.
On the 18th floor and rooftop of the Standard High Line is Le Bain, a sleek and ever-popular bar/nightclub. On the first floor of the bi-level space, you'll find Le Bain's most notable and distinguishing feature: a plunging indoor pool smack in the middle of the dance floor (hence the name, which translates to "the bath.") If you forget your swimsuit, not to worry -- there's a bathing-suit vending machine. Upstairs, you'll find an astro turf-covered rooftop with plenty of comfortable couch seating, a crêperie, and some of the best views of the city.
