Just like its name suggests, this swish club strives to grant its guests all the personalized services of a hotel room. In a sexy, honey-hued room dominated by rotating chandeliers, club-goers can canoodle in the semi-private spaces of 13 quasi-boudoirs, which are sanctioned off by pillars and sheer drapery and stocked with couches, DVD players, minibars, drawers of sleepover unmentionables, and personal on-call waiters and waitresses dressed as bellhops. Not every guest opts for this private service, however: the dance floor in the main room looks like most other clubs, with packed-in crowds enjoying the music.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Our clubbing best.
GO HERE WITH
Fun-loving friends; a private party
Beautiful young things, special occasioners, and hot-and-heavy twosomes.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Where else can you enjoy tailored service while also taking part in the hopping nightlife of Manhattan? Plus, it’s hard not to get an absolute kick out of coming up with unusual challenges for your bellhop.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
In the end, most people don’t opt for the extra cost that goes with the private service, so it feels much like any other hot NYC club.
GOOD TO KNOW
Renting any of the private party spaces requires a hefty deposit (break out the Benjamins) but you’ll be catered to all night long. The kitchen, which serves bites like grilled cheese and onion soup, is open until the early hours-and anything they can’t make can be ordered as delivery for private parties. A much roomier “presidential suite” is available for those looking to really splash out. On the other hand, any not willing to pay up can still enjoy dancing and revelry in the classy hardwood-floored central space and order from either of the two fully stocked bars.
