Dirty. Dark. Divey. Awesome. With an upstairs bar, a downstairs cavern, and in-house art gallery Fuse, this East Village nightspot is a never-ending come-as-you-are dance party filled with artists, rock stars, photographers, DJs, and the like. Vice Magazine collaborated with controversial photographer Ryan McGinley to create the raunchy space, to house a scene centered around music and art. It’s been wildly successful: Franz Ferdinand, Keane, the Strokes and the White Stripes have all hosted parties here. Come to rock out to a live band or dance to hits from the 80s and 90s that you forgot you loved but still remember all the words to. Happy hour is daily from 5-8pm with $3 drinks but most people show up around midnight and dance until 4, stopping only to take shots of Jameson and keep the fire fueled. Come the next morning, you’ll never take soap for granted again.
