New York Nightlife in Uptown or Downtown

New York Nightlife in Uptown or Downtown

Empire Hotel

New York nightlife in both Uptown or Downtown offer you lot of choices for a great night out. One person might want to relax in a lounge after dinner, while another prefers to dance all night in a club. Anything is possible, but where should you go? I have listed below some options for nice lounges and bars.


Ascent Lounge

There is a beautiful lounge, but no dancing. This is a really exclusive lounge on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center. Good sofas in a bar with great atmosphere. Lots of romantic corners. At the windows, there is a sweeping view overlooking Central Park. Beer costs $8 and cocktails start at $16.
Dress code: Business casual

Dress code: Anything goes.

Pegu Club

This is a real cocktail bar — one of the best in New York. A flight of stairs up from the ground floor, so it is a bit of an adventure to find. A variety of cocktails set within in Asian décor. Very popular with young adults. Cocktails are $13.

Dress code: Neat
