Last night I joined Johnathan Cheban, founder of Command PR and star of the newest E! series The Spin Crowd, at Kiss & Fly. Kiss & Fly ranks high on the scale of exclusivity, nestled in the Meatpacking district with red carpet and velvet rope entrances.
Inside, there are 28 VIP tables and a huge bar and dance floor, all of which were perfectly packed for this reality star. I showed up around midnight to find Joonbug's newest friend Wilson Henriques at the door, leading in his group of VIPs ahead of a crowd of office types and girls in their highest heels and shortest hemlines.
Despite Kiss and Fly's "strict" dress code, Johnathan showed his rebellious side in jeans and a t-shirt, sipping champagne and dancing on the couch in the back of the VIP area. With a few of the hottest girls in the club at his side (two of which appeared to be Erika and Lauren from the show, but no confirmation there), Johnathan had a relaxed night off work, i.e. no celebrities in sight. The rest of the VIP was chock full of models and big spenders, a table of go go dancers, and numerous of NYC's most attractive party people dancing on the couches and window ledges.
All in all, the night was a huge success, the DJ packed the VIP and floor level dancefloor with hip hop remixed 80s jams, and everyone had a good time mingling with new friends, hot bottle hosts, and LA based reality stars. My only complaints? $3 mandatory coat check and limited cell service in the back of the VIP.
