Downtown Manhattan is huge when it comes to nightlife. The streets are swarmed with tourists and New Yorkers fighting for a spot on the line of their favorite clubs. One place in particular that always seems to have a line out the door is BLVD.
Located on Bowery Street, BLVD features a world-class restaurant, classy nightclub, and even a stage for live music. Open from 6 p.m.-4 a.m., BLVD is a great place for dinner, or to dance the night away.
The main area provides a spacious lounge and premium bar. The red and brown designs leave for home-like feel and the dull lights make for an intimate setting.
Directly across from the bar are strategically placed couches around the dance floor. Behind the stage, there is a large party room for VIPs and private parties. This is where you will find bottle and table service.
If you’re not up for a classy setting, head over to Crash Mansion, which is the venue located underneath BLVD. It is the perfect place to chill out with live music and if you’re lucky, you might walk into a record release party.
Crash Mansion at BLVD presents local and seasoned musicians. Aside for the loud music, Crash also gives off an intimate setting with its lounge-like area surrounding the dance floor.
‘Crash’ is also the spot where Fearless Music is taped. Fearless Music is a TV show that is on Saturday night’s on FOX. All of the acts are taped at the local New York spot.
Being on a guest list is usually essential for these places. Cover can be pretty pricey if you’re not. But when it comes down to it, a good time is guaranteed at both places. Who knows some of the bands that you see might be on the road to fame, and you can say you saw them way back when.
Although similar, the two bars generally have different crowds. Crash Mansion, because of the music choice, usually have more a punk crowd where as BLVD has more of those fancy party goers looking for a good time.
Whether you’re looking for a sit down dinner or a crazy night on the town, BLVD and Crash Mansion are NYC hot spots that you want to be seen at.
