NYC's Top Tourist Nightclubs

When planning a trip to the big apple, there are three things you have to consider: where to stay, where to eat and where to go after you eat. Now I know what you’re thinking, typical tourist attractions like the Statute of Liberty and the Empire State Building are old news. If you’ve seen them once, then it’s enough. With that said, here is a list of places that won’t bore you, even if you revisit them every time you're in NYC.

 

Webster Hall
125 E. 11th St
New York, NY 10003

Webster Hall stands firmly as New York City’s largest and longest-running nightclub. It is truly the mother of all clubs. Webster Hall has housed some of the greatest performers from Nine Inch Nails and Green Day to Prince and even Lady Gaga. Between Girls' Night Out Thursdays, Girls & Boys Fridays and Circus Saturdays, everyday is the perfect night for Webster Hall. For those visiting from other countries, used to parting at a younger age, don’t worry because Webster Hall is 19+.  

 

 

Caroline’s on Broadway
1626 Broadway
New York, NY 10036

Located in the heart of Times Square, Caroline’s is noted at America’s Premiere Comedy Nightclub. Legendary comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno and Rosie O’Donnell have been seen here time and time again. If you find yourself wandering around 42nd street, then this is the perfect place to walk into. The cover charge varies and there is a two-drink minimum. Caroline’s is onen place that should definitely be listed on your NYC itinerary.

 

 

Libation
137 Ludlow St
New York, NY 10002

Libation specializes in tasty food, world class entertainment and three levels of fun. It has been rated by Zaget as “one of the top ten hot spots in the city,” and for tourists visiting NYC, this is definitely true. Located in the Lower East Side, Libation hosts some of the top DJs, musicians and dancers to ever walk the Manhattan streets. If you’re looking for a classic New York spot made for late night fun, then Libation is just the place.

 

 

Marquee
289 10th Ave
New York, NY 10001

When searching for a top NY spot, Marquee takes the cake. Seen mostly on “Page Six” with celebrity sightings, Marquee is very exclusive. Mojitos and margaritas are the cocktails of choice while the dark wood and glass chandeliers create a sensual vibe. If you follow the stairs to the second-floor lounge you’ll find a surprisingly soundproof glass box that overlooks the upscale revelry on the main floor. As a tourist, this place is a must see, but it's often a tough spot to get into, so make sure you're on the list.
