Top Places to Celebrate Your Birthday in NYC

The hardest part about choosing a destination for your birthday bash is picking just one from the hundreds of cool places in NYC. Nightclub or bar, exclusive or open to everyone, drinks served by a waitress or a midget dressed like a pirate (Superdive) – these are all valid questions you need to ask yourself before planning the big night out. Instead of trying to narrow it down yourself, here are a few places to make your quest for the perfect b-day location a little easier.

Top Place to Celebrate Your Birthday in NYC: Roam
5 E 19th St

You don’t hear too much about Roam these days, but when it comes to birthdays, this club knows how to deliver. While the style is classy and flashy (perfect for an upscale celebration), the space can cater to a big birthday blowout or a smaller private affair. Hang with a large group of friends on the club’s main floor and enjoy an open bar or drink specials which seem to always be going on. For a more exclusive feel, there’s a little VIP bungalow up top perfect for a party with a small group of friends. And if you don’t feel like planning it yourself, no worries – the club will do all the organization for you.

Top Place to Celebrate Your Birthday in NYC: Quo
511 W 28th St

You know Quo is a great place to throw a birthday party, just ask Angie Martinez (or take our word for it). This Chelsea hotspot is sleek and funky, with crystal beads hanging from the ceiling and a back room small enough to make you feel like VIP, but big enough to house your whole crew. The coolest part: a clear glass wall separating this room from the rest of the venue so you don’t have to feel pretentious and you can spy on the DJ from right behind the booth. This place is awesome for any night out on the town, or the most important night of the year, your birthday.

Top Place to Celebrate Your Birthday in NYC: Katra
217 Bowery

Katra is the perfect mix of upscale and casual, with a cozy Moroccan vibe and delicious exotic cocktails like Madagascar Ice. The little alcoves separating the tables, both upstairs and downstairs, makes this whole place feel like a VIP section, but if you want to go all out, reserve a whole row for you and your friends (or the top floor) and make it a party your friends will never forget. Plus, if you decide you want a change of scenery sometime in your night, there’s tons of places nearby where you can relocate the bash, without getting everyone in and out of cabs.

Top Place to Celebrate Your Birthday in NYC: Superdive
200 Ave A

I know, I know, we seem to talk about this place all the time, but if you’re going for a relaxed birthday at a dive bar where literally anything can go down, well, this is the place for you. Round up your crew, order a pizza (or a birthday cake) and have a few drinks (or a keg) if your little heart desires. Being able to order a keg at a bar is pretty effing cool, and minus the frat boys and drunk sorority girls you’ll finally be able to do an uninterrupted keg stand – which you’ll be forced to do since it is your birthday. Another reason why you should have your birthday party at Superdive? The door is easy and your friends can dress up, dress down, or pretty much do whatever they want, so you won’t have to worry about any conflicts with the doorman.
