Ring in 2010 by attending a party hosted by a legendary venue that has successfully influenced New York City’s nightlife. At first glance, Providence in Manhattan resembles another swanky lounge for socialites, but it has a rich, colorful history, making it the perfect place to begin a new decade. Providence started off as a Baptist church during the Roaring 20s, then transforming into the world-famous Media Sounds Studios, followed by celebrity hot spot Le Bar Bat in the 90s. Celebrities, including Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, The Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, and Aerosmith have either had a scandalous night out here or recorded one of their many influential hits. Today, Providence is recognized as Midtown’s premier high energy mega lounge, located just steps away from Central Park and “the greatest outdoor New Year’s Eve party in the world,” also known as Times Square. If you’re an avid music lover or just want to add a touch of the dramatics to your New Year’s Eve night, then Providence is a must-stop for your first weekend of 2010.
For New Year’s Eve 2010, Providence is paying tribute to the past, while welcoming the future, by unveiling an art installation with original and commemorative album covers from the famous tunes recorded on site, but this is only the beginning of this extravagant, lavish, and captivating bash. The bar, restaurant, lounge, and nightclub boasts a fireplace to canoodle with sexy singles, a five hour premium open bar, a scrumptious mini buffet, live feed of Times Square, and a world renowned DJ spinning sets of hip-hop, rock, 80s, dance, and more. Just when many parties are beginning to die out, stay until 3AM when Providence will grant patrons access to their secret after party. Enjoy the beginning of 2010 at Providence, a giant, sultry, high energy party spot that’s only getting started on making history.
