VIP Nightclub NYC
The "models and bottles" lifestyle of NYC's club crowd are evolving as venues seek a more egalitarian atmosphere.
Sure, the same bankers and pretty girls will flirt around their reserved bottle service table, but there's also a new line for prepaid ticket holders waiting to get in the door and see the DJ, The New York Post's Hardeep Phull reports.
In that line, no one cares what clothes you're wearing, what you look like, or how big your wallet is. You bought a $30 ticket, so you'll get in the door.
And it's not just in Manhattan. Williamsburg's new club Output bills itself as a place with no bottle service, no doormen, no nonsense. Via the club's FAQ page: "Output is open to anyone, but is not for everyone. Output welcomes individuals who value the communal experience of music over cameras and bottle service."
There was no hassle at the door. This is an important thing to many New Yorkers, and this is what many of them have been waiting to see at a proper, large-scale club … You do not go to Output to be seen. You go to dance.
The music and dance scenes are now the major selling point at Output, Marquee, and the soon-to-be-opened Space nightclub in Manhattan. It appeals beyond the Wall Street-types and model-esque women to the music nerds, tourists, hipsters, dancers, and club rats willing to shell out $30 to get in and hear great music.
