Whether you’re going to EDC and want to keep the party going, or you weren’t able to make the festival, here is your guide to the EDC NY after parties.*
Memorial Day Weekend is the big kick off to summer and everyone is looking for the best places to party. Some people decide to spend it at big resort destinations such as Vegas, Atlantic City or Miami but if you’re staying in the Tri-State area, there is no better place to be Saturday, May 25th than Brunch Bounce at La Marina Beach.
Started by Irvin Benitez and later joined by his partner, Jose Espinal, Brunch Bounce has been rocking parties for almost a year now. Recently they have teamed up with Apt. 78 owner, Jose Morales to hold parties at the super dope, art gallery inspired cafe and lounge. The music at Brunch Bounce is an eclectic, open format orgy of genres that sets the tone for a wild day party unlike any found in NYC. Brunch Bounce distinguishes itself from other NYC parties by staying away from the pretentious, bottle popping, arrogant crowd that has permeated NY nightlife recently. The good people at Brunch Bounce only concern is that guests have fun, dance, take off their cool and let loose. At Brunch Bounce it is not uncommon to see beautiful women having a great time, crowdsurfing, raging and dancing with the fellas. Everyone bounces to the sounds of the music together, simply enjoying the moment. For Memorial Day Weekend there will be a special twist to the party.

Ever find yourself getting ready to party the night away in Roselle, NJ? If you haven’t then you may want to start thinking about trying it. Roselle is only a 40 minute drive outside NYC. The other half of the Central Park building on Wood Avenue, Mister East is a New Jersey nightclub whose atmosphere and energy can rival those of NYC.
As soon as you step into Mister East you feel like you have entered a true adult playground. Perfect nightclub lighting, sexy dancers moving to the newest and hottest music, females swaying back and forth on a giant swing, and bottles sparkling like 4th of July on their way to one of the many VIP tables in the venue. This and more are just some of the things that immediately catch your attention upon first glance in Mister East.
This summer people of the Tri-state area will have a sexy, trendy and fun new place to party right next to the ocean. Jump into the pool, enjoy a cocktail, catch a nice tan, party in the hot sun during the day and then party even harder at night. The place is the new HQ Beach Club at Revel Resort in Atlantic City.
Slated for a May opening, the remnant of highly successful HQ Nightclub will bring the first poolside, day-into-night party of its kind to the Northeast. Inspired by the beautiful Greek island of Mykonos, this 45,000 square foot adults-only, ocean side haven, will hold parties alongside the iconic Atlantic City boardwalk every weekend. Revelers will surely love the surroundings to which their summer days will turn into nights.
West 8th Street in Greenwich Village has never been thought of as a hotspot for New York City nightlife. However, new restaurants, a new boutique hotel, and a world renowned nightclub have changed the face of West 8th, once more known for its shoe stores and small businesses than its trendiness.
Pink Elephant, the high-end nightclub run by David Sarner and Robert Montwaid, resurrected itself in the former Club Love space last year. Since its opening, the retro-glam venue with its rainbow-colored lights, half-moon disco balls, Infinity Room and cocktails by mixologist Ben Wood, have been packing its dance floors with celebrities, socialites and trendsetters alike.
In typical Vegas fashion, these two heavyweights will go head-to-head when the multi-million dollar nightclubs celebrate their grand openings a week apart. Hakkasan at the MGM Grand will open its nightclub portion of the venue April 18th with Grammy nominated Deadmau5 performing, while Mandalay Bay's Light will weigh in with Interscope Records’ Zedd just 6 days later on April 24th. For a more in-depth look at both of these new heavy hitters, let’s go to the tale-of-the-tape.
Hakkasan Restaurant & Nightclub at MGM Grand is a breathtaking new concept in dining and entertainment. While there are other Hakkasan venues worldwide, this will be their first venture on the Las Vegas Strip. This unique fusion of delicious Asian cuisine and exhilarating nightlife spans over 75,000 square feet and five levels. Envisioned and created by Hakkasan Ltd. and partners at Angel Management Group, the venue holds more than 7,000 people.
Spring has finally showed up and what better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than with a night out at the club? This weekend, Gansevoort Park's Red Room hosts two of the City’s up and coming DJs, both transplants from California and NYU alums, John Hamilton and Rhett Bixler.
Friday, April 5th
John Hamilton at The Red Room (Gansevoort Park, 420 Park Avenue South)
With a stage presence that resembles some of the greats, a talented ear, an ambitious attitude and a humble personality—John Hamilton is working his way up in the dance music scene. This Sacramento native and NYU grad has opened for the likes of Steve Aoki and TV Rock. He has also turned heads at The Belvedere Music Lounge alongside Tiesto, Dada Life and Nervo during Miami Music Week. In addition to playing the college circuit, Hamilton has headlined countless venues throughout NYC such as Santos Party House, Pink Elephant and WIP.
With the impending season premiere of Mad Men, it's important to plan ahead and get prepped for the big event.

The selection of cocktails include The Don Draper, Betty's Bitter Rage, Liquor & Smoke (Roger), The Glass Ceiling (Peggy), The Dykeman Daiquiri (Pete), and The Firey Redhead (Joan).
