Best Night Clubs in NYC

I know there's a ton of young NYC people on here so thought I would ask. My buddies 24th birthday is in a couple weeks and we're trying to take him out clubbing in NYC. We're a group of 10ish and thinking about getting a table somewhere. Any recommendations of places worth checking out? Money is no object.Β

The clubbing scene is still in shambles since covid. A lot of the heavy hitting places are still closed and one actually got demolished (Avenue). Couldn't even tell you where specifically to go at this point but look at Chelsea/Meatpacking to find young materialistic people or Midtown to find older and/or foreign materialistic people.

I also acknowledge that you're looking to spend a pretty penny but please do note that it may cost five thousand++ dollars (I'm not kidding) to have all 10 of you go clubbing after you inevitably have to pay off the doorman to get everyone in, find out how quickly the bottle drains and have to buy drinks at the bar anyways, accidentally tip 20% on top of the 20% "included gratuity" you didn't read while drunk, etc. so be careful!

Yeah I have done this. I was in Greenhouse NYC and tipped 20% on their 20% one night and then realized my error thinking about it in the cab home - doh

Yeah I had $240 in vodka tonics and 20% was factored in already, but they put a Tip and Signature box on the receipt to make it look normal. My initial bill was like $200, but just tipped $60 on top of the $240 and it was $300. Fack. I have never made this mistake again.Β

Some options listed in no particular order are Somewhere Nowhere, Nebula, PhD, Escondido (Latin music), Paul's Casablanca, Le Bain, the Blond and Kind Regards

With that said, clubbing is a huge waste of money (at least as a guy) and honestly not that much fun at a standard Manhattan club, but those are options if you're dead set on that plan

I think Pauls Casablanca or Common ground Bar are two decent spots to get bottle service and not break the bank. I used to do 1oak but I don't think its open. Marquee is open and is usually fun, crowd can be different depending on whos playing (Marquee is ticketed for general admission so you get more of a variety of people). TAO is usually good as well. Not really a fan of Lavo, PHd or Catch as much.Β 

Brooklyn Mirage or House of yes(a little bit of a different vibe) could be fun if y'all are into more house music and rave type of stuff.Β

Marquee or Mirage. Mirage doesn't do tables to my knowledge and is more of a true concert / festival venue. Marquee is very small and intimate club, could probs get a table for 5-8k depending on talent playing that night. That's the biggest thing on tables - you're always paying for talent discrepancies.

I liked Cielo a lot, was a cool niche place, but they shut down. 😭😭😭

My friend used to be a part owner of Pacha NYC - was pretty cool - but they shut down too. He got a group of us free bottle service back in the day which was rockstar.

I've also been to Pacha Buenos Aires, but they shut down too.Β

Money no object? Fly your friends down to Miami. The club scene in NYC sucks ass right now and is worse now than before COVID and I thought that was still pretty bad.

This might be a wise idea. The flights to MIA from NYC are usually cheap.Β
