A fun club in the heart of the meat-packing district. Unlike its other meatpacking competition, Hilo takes a democratic approach to going out: There’s no velvet rope and no cover, and dancing (as opposed to just sitting around and looking pretty) is the main event here. Located in a former vault below Ninth Avenue, the intimate club, currently open Fridays and Saturdays, offers revelers a mix of techno, Top 40, and hip-hop; D.J. Rumor (who spins at Knicks home games)mans the decks on Friday nights, and on Saturdays it’s Kasey Berry (a regular at Beauty and Essex).

HILO Bar is a secret hideaway with great music, stiff drinks, and good company. Whether you want to enjoy your favorite cocktail before dinner or dance the night away, you are always invited to the party.

Take your pick from the simple menu of cocktails with seasonal ingredients, kick back on black tufted banquettes and enjoy the sounds throughout the night. A welcoming ambience that is inviting.

Injitially, one thinks a touch of the 80s.The name, velvet rope and doorman suggest a more serious watering hole.
Inside, this triple-decker Lower East Side happy haunt is inviting and very cozy. The colors and decor are warm
and neat with muted cocoa squares, brown banquettes and an illuminated orange panel piping the bar top. Good
looking types and cute couples - stylishly attired, scoff up downstairs, and relax with drinks on the mezzanine.
Usually friendly bartenders take good care of customers mixing favorites like Sidecars and top-shelf margharitas,
along with popular drinks like the Ultimate Libation, a tangy mango mojito mix, and a fresh East Sider, made
with Hendrick's gin, muddled mint, club soda and a cucumber slice. After dinner on weekends, the bar is roomy
but fills up fast, Third floor usually reserved for private parties.
Note: Some customers have posted mixed reviews on other sites about the staff.

The legendary club you've heard about.
T
rendy, popular and very pricey, this Chelsea club (not far from Meat Packing District)
pulls a lively crowd who can afford this experience. The ambience is rather dark. And,
it's all very loud. The club has received mixed reviews from customers. They love it or
hate it. Be prepared to wait in line (grrr...) and deal with lofty door bosses. It's a hot New
York experience - but quite different from its mega-popular Vegas namesake.

Mercury Lounge is a Manhattan music club and venue located on the lower
east side. The building once warehoused the servents at the Astor Mansion
via an underground labyrinth of tunnels and darkness. It was also once a
tombstone store in the 20th century! In 1993, it converted to the music
emporium it is today. Some well known bands got their start here like The
Stokes.It is a smaller, music mainstays that remains consistently popular.

Inventive mixologist Audrey Saunders, who showed her chops creating the drink list for Bemelmans Bar,
has teamed up with the owners of Flatiron Lounge and Zinc Bar to revive the art of the drink at this upstairs
cocktail lounge. The name pays tribute to a storied, late-19th century British officers club in Burma, and the
out-of-context colonial style has a light, escapist feel—organic with palm plants, low wood tables that are
both polished and rough-hewn, and East Asian-style dark wood grilles across the windows. It's a natural
for the silkily dressed dates and groups who make themselves comfortable on the rich brown velvet couches,
or fill the bar area to standing room only. The house cocktails, made with all fresh juices and ingredients, reflect
a master of the craft at play, beginning with the Gin-Gin Mule, spiced with homemade ginger beer, all the way to
The Old Cuban, a champagne mojito. The infused Earl Grey MarTEAni is a clean, Brit take on a Pisco Sour; the
Tantris Sidecar has a subtle sweetness, multi-layered with cognac, Calvados and Chartreuse; and the minty
Whiskey Smash (honoring Saunders' mentor, Dale DeGroff) tops any Kentucky julep. Smoked trout deviled eggs,
coconut shrimp and other plates are on the menu, and cocktail condiments—droppers of lemon, lime, simple syrup
and bitters—are set on each table. For something sexy, the Champagne Apricato is topped with a purple orchid.

Trendy club owned by Michael Satsky and Brian Gefter, Provocateur is a nightlife oasis created to cater
to every desire.
Designed by Lionel Ohayon (Koi, STK, Hyde, W Hotels), Provocateur is comprised of two
distinct nightlife settings:
Provocateur Café and Provocateur Nightclub. Both the Café and Nightclub embody
the splendors of international nightlife.

It is rumored that entry will be like getting into Fort Knox. Hence, the snob appeal. Alluring and seductive in
posh ambience - in the Meat Packing District,
Provocateur is a good downtown club experience in New York.
It's been around for a few years now and the fact that it can still bring
in a well-rounded crowd is impressive.
Provocateur's door people are excellent to so-so.There are two rooms, the garden lounge and the club. The
garden lounge is the
perfect place to sit and chat while the club is for dancing and letting loose.

Tenjune - Meat Packing District (No cover)
26 Little West 12th Street (Near Gansevoort Street)
(646) 624 2410 / www.tenjune.com
One of the Meat Packing District's hottest ("most dangerous") dance and drinking clubs.
It
helps to know someone here. Serious party stuff. Great crowd! Celebrity magnet.

Has attracted celebs from the business including: Britnet Spears, Diddyin the D.J. booth;
Janet Jackson, etc.
There's a private VIP bathroom. It's not easy to get past the doorman and into this lounge,
from Eugene Remm of Level V and Mark Birnbaum. Located beneath the luxury steakhouse
STK, the small horseshoe-shaped dance floor is surrounded by two tiers of tables and
a D.J.- performance stage. A leather bar, marble accents, zebra-print tables, and a
velvet-rich Purple Room give nearby Double Seven a run for its money. — Daniel Maurer

Trendy Meat Packing District area club   

The Double Seven is one of New York's most stylish cocktail lounge/bars.Initially opened in 2005,
The Double Seven was the first venue to bring the post-Prohibition era cocktail movement, complete
with hand-cut ice and freshly-pressed juices, to the downtown fashion scene. At the height of it's
popularity in 2007, The Double Seven was forced to close and search for a new location when
the building in which it resided was sold.
Now reborn just blocks away, The Double Seven is a slightly larger and more accessible space that
retains the intimacy of its predecessor and the same commitment to the highest quality of service,
product and design.

The Double Seven is the ideal spot for those thirsty for one more cocktail and good conversation
after a night out for dinner, or for those who are looking for fun and an upbeat night on the town,
but seek a more manageable and grown-up nightlife experience. Hot, trendy club. Recommended.
