Clubplanet Pick of the Week: LAVO

Clubplanet Pick of the Week: LAVO

Las Vegas – the winking lights, the excessive décor, the way the air just feels electric and magical. Those fiending for glamour know that they can get their fix at any given time in Vegas, and LAVO is one of the best places to do just that. But what about all of us on the East Coast? Where is our Las Vegas decadence?

As of this past September, a Vegas vacation is no longer necessary to experience Vegas opulence firsthand. Strategic Group (Avenue, Stanton Social, TAO) has brought the ever popular LAVO to Midtown West, adding a touch of New York City exclusivity to the mix.

The 6,000-square-foot venue sits regally on E 58th between Madison and Park (once the home of the illustrious Au Bar). It is comprised of a distinctive Italian bistro on the upper level and a painfully glamorous nightclub on the lower level, where disco balls twirl above a sunken dance floor ringed by bottle-service tables.

If you become famished from dancing, make your way upstairs and indulge in one-pound meatballs or the Seafood Plateau (a lush three tier platter of oysters, clams and lobsters). Fans of LAVO’s restaurant also rave about the specialty drinks – lush concoctions such as the Pomegranate Lemonada and the Il Belo (Belvedere Citrus, Lillet, Peach Puree, and Chambord).

Living up to its fabulous reputation, LAVO is consistently making nightlife news with fresh and fun events. LAVO takes advantage of their spectacular restaurant with an extravagant Saturday brunch. DJs spin club music and hip-hop while patrons dine on delicious reworked brunch traditions and sip champagne. If you so choose, you can order the magnum bottle of LAVO’s house rose – which will be brought out by someone decked in a Superman costume.

As the party transitions from day to night, LAVO turns up the heat, sparing no expense to bring in some of the world's most renowned DJs. Tiesto drew a massive crowd last Friday and Eric Morillo will pack the house Halloween weekend. Although LAVO New York is barely even a month old, the club's admirers already include the likes of Samantha Ronson, Omarion and Nicky Hilton.

One of the most telling observations of the club is that its patrons actually dance. What is it about LAVO that can get even the most jaded NYC party people moving? Could it be the delectable cuisine? The majestic décor? The over-the-top events? Or is it the pulsating spirit of Vegas seeping into the East Coast style?

Whatever it is, LAVO has hit the target spot-on. Get comfortable. This nightclub will be causing a stir in New York City for quite some time.
