The best nightclubs in New York City: the ultimate guide
“Live it up, drink it down, party hard! And there is no better place to do that, than New York City!”
New York City! The world's most favorite lover, the most explosively vibrant place you will ever be. I have never met anyone who doesn't want to take even the slightest bite of the Biggest Apple. What people say is true; you haven't lived until you've been to New York! But do you know what is even truer? You haven't lived until you've partied in New York! So, let's get a small taste of all the places you can get the party started!
House of Yes ($$)
When I first visited "House of Yes" I was completely taken aback! It isn’t like any other club- better yet- it’s New York’s, most cosmopolitan nightclub! Imagine, being in a parallel universe where everything around you is made up of dream material- and I'm not only referring to the girls! Circus-like shows, the most tasteful music, unimaginably spectacular aerial shows, crowded corridors, affordable booze, and lights! Many lights- to be exact- since this place boasts a sensory-overloading laser-and-LED light show. When art meets people, who know how to have fun - they set "House of Yes" as a meeting point. I’m telling you- this pioneering Bushwick hotspot has established itself as a reliable way for the locals to dance like no one’s watching! Raise your glasses and say “yes” to the “House of Yes”!
230 Fifth Rooftop Bar ($$)
“You haven't had a taste of New York until you see its skyline!” This is what they had told me, the first time I ever visited the city that never sleeps. At first, I was utterly confused, but then I saw for myself- and I realized! You should, too.
Now, of course, you can- and you must- visit the Empire State Building, but unfortunately, you can't party at the top of it. "Oh, what a killjoy!" you'd think, "If only there was a remarkable nightclub-observatory!". Boy, do I have some great news for you- there is! "230 fifth Rooftop Bar" is probably one of the most unforgettable, movie-like experiences you will ever have - accompanied by the right soundtracks (upbeat lounge, 80’s, 90’s, House). Located on the rooftop of one of the highest skyscrapers, it will take your breath away. I visited it during February, and there was an extraordinary surprise awaiting me; I partied inside a heated igloo bar. That’s right! If you’re lucky enough to travel to NYC during wintertime, do visit the “230 Fifth Rooftop Bar”, since you’ll get to party in one of them too! Compile the nicest elements - the view of the thousand dazzling city lights, the music, the atmosphere, and the fancy cocktails, and have the time of your life. Honestly, don't miss it out!

How cool would it be if you could party in the comfort of your own backyard? “Nowadays” can make your dreams come true- at least it worked out for me! If you visit New York during the summer months, then you have to party at “Nowadays”. Filled with dense vegetation and fairy lights, this nightclub will bring along the wind of change! Rumor has it - and I am here to confirm it- that it resembles the Neverland for all the dreamers and the doers! What is more, the prices are just what the budget-travellers need since the drinks start from the reasonable price of 5$. Show your latest dance moves to the tunes of dubstep, electro-industrial, and house music! So New York, summer breeze, and cheap booze; are you in?
Tiki Disco ($)
There are so many people who avoid going to nightclubs just because dance music (house, dubstep, etc.) is not their cup of tea. I’m one of them! “Tiki Disco” is a place for all of us who strive for something different. It is a place for all ages; the older ones, who feel nostalgic about their teen years, and the youngsters who often wish they belonged in another musical era. Decked out in surprisingly convincing ’70s decor, the ambience is dark and definitely disco-y (is that a word), it's a cool, sensual almost vibe, in a dive bar setting. The mixed crowds are popping while there have been reports of giving away free snacks. Be edgy, dance to the rhythms of the YMCA, let your spirit free. A nightclub that really does justice to all the disco lovers out there!
Le Bain ($$$)
If you think that “Le Bain” is just an ordinary club, then think twice, because any club located in New York is not just a club. This is the case for “Le Bain”. It’s an awesome, out-of-this-world penthouse nightclub, where you can party till dawn! As I entered- which is not always such an easy task to do- I immediately realized that not only are the surroundings amazing, and the customer service top notch, but also the views are breathtaking! While being in a hot tub (yes they do have one!), I kept staring out the floor to ceiling windows; I got to see from New Jersey to the island of Manhattan. You should follow my lead. Keep your eyes open, take a deep breath and watch the world go by! It’s a sight that will be engraved on both your memory and your heart! Great vibes, sprawling music, and unforgettable crowd! However, I have to remind you that everything comes with a price; the drinks are not so affordable, but it’s New York, so that's understandable. If you’re still not convinced, I’ll let you in on a little secret; Late night crepes sold on the rooftop really put the cherry on top, and the “hell’ to the yes!
The Pyramid ($)
This nightclub is as exciting and mystical as it sounds! It is New York’s most retro bar, hosting a plethora of upcoming events- which you should be looking forward to! However, you have to follow by heart an unbreakable rule; you must have the ultimate fun! Dance to the beats of the '80s, Punk, Goth, New Wave, Alternative, Brit and Synth Pop. Who says you need a time machine to travel back in time? This club is going to give you the ultimate lift! One of the best things about “the Pyramid” is that it doesn’t require any kind of dress code, they’ll take you as you are! The good-sized dance floor will lead people to get together, go into a little circle, sing and laugh out loud! Lose yourself in the music! And you can check it out here.
Truth is, there are so many fancy and hot nightclubs in New York City! It’s a place that features an enormous array of music styles, from electronic to Latin, from hip-hop to reggae! The choice is honestly up to you; just combine your terms of having fun, your music preferences and of course your budget. That way, you’ll have the most desirable result. And trust me, New York is going to provide you with whatever you ask for! Have the ultimate fun!
