    CLUBS

    Avenue

    Address – 116 10th Ave., NY, NY 10011

    Avenue is a favored club of Manhattan’s elite. The club’s compact size and the sophisticated allure of its crowd keeps the club packed Monday through Saturday. The venue’s Monday night party is currently the best in the city with regular celebrity pop-ins and a very attractive crowd. The small size of the club means that the door is very selective. But, if you are allowed in, you can be sure that you are partying among New York’s elite. For house music fans, the club throws a house music party on Tuesdays which is well attended and occasionally hosts big name DJs.

    Crowd description: Avenue draws a crowd of Manhattan’s elite from a mixture of upscale, downtown and urban crowd types.

    Music: Popular club music (hip hop, mainstream progressive house music). On Tuesdays, Avenue hosts its very popular house music party.

    1OAK (One of a Kind)

    One of a Kind consistently has the best late night party in the city. At around 2 am the energy picks up considerably as the New York’s in the know partiers being to arrive from other destinations throughout the city.

    As the clock strikes 3 the place is in full swing with plenty of beautiful models, international bon vivants, gainfully employed corporate types and creative people. The door is extremely tight as the place is packed every night of the week (except Monday’s – when it is closed). The late night party has been running here for years and shows no sign of stopping. If you’re looking for something to do between the hours of 2 and 4 am, we cannot recommend another place more highly than 1Oak.

    Crowd Description: 1Oak attracts a mixture of the four crowd types (Upscale, urban, downtown, corporate). The venue is a favorite of the modeling industry – and generally attracts an elite crowd.

    Music: Club top 40, mixture of hip hop – mainstream progressive house.

    Marquee

    Marquee has emerged as one of NYC’s premiere nightclubs to see big name EDM DJs. The club hosts international DJs three nights a week. The club’s sound and lighting systems are unmatched in the city and while other large club’s that host EDM DJs can often feel like bridge and tunnel free-for-alls, Marquee manages to maintain a well behaved crowd. On nights other than Wednesdays, Marquee makes a limited number of tickets available online – if you plan to check out one of their parties and you don’t want to buy table service – tickets are definitely the way to go.

    Crowd description: The crowd is a mixture of the 4 crowd types with some models and pretty faces who mostly hang out at VIP tables.

    Music: Popular club music with a focus on big name EDM DJs on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays

    Provocateur

    Provocateur consistently attracts the most sophisticated crowd in the New York club scene. Guests ranges from European looking business men to successful models who are experienced enough in nightlife to know that this is the place to spend their night out. Provocateur features two distinct rooms, a lounge called Provocateur Cafe which plays softer alterno-pop music and is great for having a conversation, and Provocateur nightclub which plays house music and frequently features big name DJs. The door is tighter than tight, make arrangements in advance and be prepared to pay top dollar or do not bother.

    Crowd Description: The crowd is a mixture of successful fashion models, international playboy types, sophisticated upscale socialites and the well heeled from around the globe. If you make it inside, make no mistake, you are partying with Manhattan’s elite.

    Music: They play deep house, minimal house and tech house in the club and softer pop music in the café.

    Lavo

    Lavo delivers a high energy nightlife experience that is part NYC exclusive nightclub – part all out Las Vegas style rager.

    The club’s lighting and effects are among the most sophisticated and elaborate in the city – yet they are fine tuned so as to not be overwhelming. The club is focused around high energy house music and frequently hosts some of the biggest DJs in the world When big name DJs are in town table minimums go through the roof. Lavo charges a cover which can vary in amount from night to night depending on who is Djing. One thing that we recommend which absolutely cannot be missed, is the excellent Lavo Brunch party held at the venue’s upstairs restaurant on Saturdays. In our opinion Lavo brunch is one of the best parties in New York.

    Crowd Description: Lavo is much larger than many of New York’s other exclusive clubs, in fact, it feels like the offspring of a Vegas club and a Manhattan club. The crowd is correspondingly similar, a mixture of Vegas and NY crowds. The crowd definitely leans toward upscale / young corporate – with plenty of models / pretty faces sprinkled in.

    Music: Lavo plays mostly mainstream progressive house music, with a mixture of other club top 40. The club also frequently hosts big name DJs (on Thursdays), with a famous DJ spinning nearly every Thursday.
