Tao Downtown Opens With a Bang
The Hot List

The Darby

A clause dispute has caused owners to transform a once luxury supper-club into a full-scale nightclub. The Darby, which used to serve such celebrities as Jay Z and Leonardo DiCaprio, will be moving from its original West 14th Street location to make way for one of New York's highly anticipated hotspots. In its place will be the still unnamed club which features two floors, bottle service, live musical performances, and an upscale clientele, much in the likes of its previous incarnation.

Verboten Club If you think Williamsburg has too many nightclubs, think again. One of NYC's most popular dance music and club promoters will be building a mega-club. With two rooms, the venue will be able to house more than 700 bodies in total, and the company expects their "techno programming" to attract "music fans, Europeans, hipsters, freaks, party girls and industry types" all under one roof.
