There is always a temptation to remain in the coddled glove of your luxury hotel when you are staying in a new city. You know where you are with the fine dining, there is always a bar with wonderful staff and quite frankly, being within staggering distance of your luxury suite if you are feeling a bit squiffy is a huge advantage. However, if you are feeling a little more adventurous and want to experience the bright lights and big city, here are my recommendations for a happening night out in the Big Apple!
Located in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood is Avenue, one of the city’s most exclusive and favored nightclubs. The intimate size of Avenue and allure of its patrons mostly celebrities and fashion models keep it busy from Monday to Saturday. Avenue’s party on Monday is the best in the city at present. On Tuesday, they host a special party dedicated to house music lovers. The door is highly selective with good reason.
Boom Boom Room

This can be attributed to the unparalleled views, superb decor, and practically impassable door. Heck, you even have stunning views from the bathrooms. If you make it inside, be prepared to rub shoulders with the uber elite of Manhattan. The Boom Boom Room basically operates as a private members club and it currently does not accept reservations from the public.
