guestofaguest: Financial Lows, Nightlife Highs

Last Saturday night Richie Akiva, a partner in 1Oak, threw a momentous birthday bash with hundreds of his "closest friends," including P. Diddy and Leo DiCaprio.  The scene outside was insane! People were gridlocked, with about 20 NYPD officers having to constantly clear the street and sidewalk. 

L Mag Party: c/o cultureofme.comLess than a day later, Wall Street got absolutely crushed, and we had to ask, “What does this mean for New York City nightlife?”  Sure, many will need massive watering holes to drown their sorrows, but will former Lehman Brothers boys continue to be willing to spend $2k to secure a table at the clubs?  This is yet to be determined.  But our feeling is that while bears and bulls make money, clubs may very well get slaughtered in this economy.
 
But even as things were crumbling on Wall Street, there was still much celebrating to be had.  We helped Steve Lewis, Michael Musto, Sophia Lamar, and others present the L Magazine Nightlife awards at Touch.  We also managed to snap a few pictures while we were there.  

Club Europa: c/o everyoneisfamous.comOn Wednesday The Eldridge lived up to its reputation as New York City’s “most exclusive” club.  Socialite Emily Brill had to wait outside for 40 minutes

And in other news, we mulled over the top ten most annoying trends in nightlife, our very own Scott and Naeem let us in on their crazy, fun filled Fashion Week nights, Heath Ledger’s Brooklyn bar officially opened, and we thought Club Europa in Greenpoint looks surprisingly fun.

Hopefully you still have your job going into the weekend, and can sigh a little bit of relief.  It should be a very interesting week in NYC.  We’ll be back to report on it next week!
