The beautiful thing about New York City nightlife is that people who may be ordinary by day become extraordinary by night, and among those extraordinary people, celebrities exist. Everyone wants to see them – and party with them. Here’s a list of the top celeb hangouts in New York City. If you can get in the door, then you can get anywhere.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: Provocateur
18 9th Avenue
New York NY 10014
If you’re into classic luxury and romance then look no further than Provocateur. Designed by Lionel Ohayon of Koi and W Hotel fame, this upscale venue is awe-inducing and meant to cater to feminine desire. You must be distressingly beautiful to enter through the doors of Provocateur in the first place, and only then will you find yourself gazing upon some of the most glamorous stars. Among Provocateur’s famous friends are Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: The Box
189 Chrystie Street
New York , NY 10002
Imagine 1920s opulence and over-the-top decadence complete with curving staircases and Vaudevillian and burlesque acts – that’s The Box. Serge Becker, Richard Kimmel, Randy Weiner and Simon Hammerstein’s breathtaking creation is an absolute must for those interested in theater or film. And that’s exactly the kind of people who frequent this imaginative venue. Susan Sarandon is just one of a plethora of stage and film stars who have spent a luxurious evening inside The Box. A magical experience that isn’t for the shy at heart.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: Kenmare
98 Kenmare Street
New York, NY 10012
Traditional Mediterranean cuisine meets non-traditional nightlife at Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny’s Kenmare. The lights are low and the music is loud but the setting is still intimate somehow. The décor takes one back to Old Hollywood as it is simply dripping with glitz and romance. Sit at a table or in one of the lounge’s cozy hideaways, or if it’s late enough, dance the night away. The best time to see the stars is at dinner or late night. Although the club is dimly lit, Kenmare is frequently sparkling with notable individuals.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: The Boom Boom Room
848 Washington Street
New York, NY 10014
From atop the Standard Hotel at the Boom Boom Room you can witness what has been hailed as the absolute most beautiful view in all of the city. You’ll never see yourself the same way after visiting the lavishly decorated mirrored bathroom. While sipping a one of a kind cocktail or snacking on strawberries and whipped cream, you can also see some of New York City’s most beautiful celebrities. Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, and Jared Leto are just a few of the famous faces seen lounging about this unforgettable nightclub.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: Stanton Social
99 Stanton Street
New York, NY 10011
Ever since it’s opening, New York has been all abuzz about the Stanton Social. The atmosphere is a pleasing mixture of minimal and elegant and the food is delectable. While it’s not the place for a quiet evening (the music is loud but that’s to be expected if you’re a Lower East Side regular), it is a place for seeing the celebrities that usually bring to mind young Hollywood. Mischa Barton, Ashley Tisdale and Matt Damon have all been seen socializing at the Stanton.
Top Celebrity Hangout in NYC: Rose Bar
2 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY 10010
Rose Bar is the quintessential exclusive New York City nightclub. The floral themed spot is immaculately decorated, there isn’t one person alive who would say something negative about the delicious cocktails and the music is always hip and cutting edge. Even the staff is gorgeous at Rose Bar. If you think it seems too good to be true, you’re right: Rose Bar is one of the hardest clubs to get into in the city - even professional party girl Paris Hilton has been denied entry through the extravagant doors. Those that do get in will find themselves among the ranks of socialites, models and musicians.
