Think Marquee meets The Gates. No, not a long line of tourists. Not a bunch of glorified drapes that get knocked over by the snow. But in the cutthroat world of New York hotspots, it's the details that count. And the "Gates-ish" details, the posh orange lights on the ceiling, help give The Plumm a sexy, glowing, decadent vibe. Designed by Richard Baquero of RAB/ID, Plumm has a deep purple background--hence the name--and immediately launches into the upper-stratosphere of NYC nightlife decor. Look for a sexy crowd, models, and a top-notch DJ lineup that includes the likes of Q-Tip. VIP membership is "semi-private," available only through a special keychain. Good luck getting one.
