New York Fashion Week Venue Predictions

While our Glam Damn It team will be giving you the latest scoop from the runways, we at SceneTracker will deliever the low-down on where the party is. We are already itching for the open bars, celeb sightings and other awesomeness that takes place during fashion week. Here are my predictions for where some of the biggest and best parties will be held.

It almost goes without saying that the uber exclusive Standard Hotel's Boom Boom Room, where Marc Jacobs held his extravagant bash for his latest Fall/Winter 2010 collection will host another highly exclusive shin-dig this September. Stiletto clad bombshells, and skinny jeaned hipsters will definitely make appearances at the Gansevort Hotel's Provocatuer and no doubt will something amazing will be brewing atop of their newest Park Ave location at Plunge Lounge. The ultra-stylish and notoriously cool Ace Hotel will be a contender. And please believe The Donald will have some involvement in this season's events, so Trump SoHo's Kastel and rooftop lounge Bar d'Eau will be on the list. Fashion insiders' old time favs Tribeca and SoHo Grand are sure to be in the mix as well.

Boom Boom Pow

Will I Am and the other Black Eyed Peas must have known what was coming to New York. Boom Boom Pow.

As the dust settles around what has been billed as possibly the greatest launch since Studio 54, the question remains – what can we expect? Not only from Andre Balazs’ new project, but also for the future of the New York nightlife.

The Boom Boom Room Throws a Star-Studded Party

Yes, the new rooftop bar in the Standard Hotel, the Boom Boom Room, is the hottest club in downtown New York. To make sure everyone is aware of that, owner Andre Balazs threw a private grand opening party worthy of comparison to the best fashion ball or Jay-Z after-party.

This past Saturday, the currently VIP-only bar hosted the event. The Standard hasn’t hired anyone to run the door yet, but it should happen shortly. So get that cocktail dress ready—The impressive guest list included Demi and Ashton, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Kirsten Dunst, among many others.

With guests like Madonna, Jude, and Lindsay in attendance there was a fair bit of coverage on the event. Huffpost, along with almost every other blog on the planet, have all the juicy details. (DBTH even called the new venue a game changer). It seems like just about every celeb in the city made an appearance for the opener, and famed photographer Patrick McMullan called it an opening reminiscent of Studio 54.

Meat Packing

It's a Thursday. I’m trying to get off the couch because it's already been a long week. Then, the incentive to get motivated comes in the form of a text message from Jessica White. Sport Illustrated models always get me motivated. She’s in town, bored and wants to hangout. My response? I’m in! She’s staying at the Standard Hotel. I offer to pick her up because I haven’t been there yet and I’m curious. The hotel lobby is small and there is a cute little bar that services the lobby. I’m sure there’s more to come. Mean while, Ms. White has me waiting 20 minutes. Jeez… I love it!
