There's something thrilling about drinking and dancing in a church, and for 30 years this Chelsea institution (formerly Limelight) has promised hedonism and clandestine revelry. The looming, labyrinthine structure is the clubÂ's defining feature, and the sleek, modern design layered on top of the original gothic architecture creates an intriguing convergence of sacred and sinful. An eager crowd of 18 plus-ers bump and grind to Top 40 hits in one of the numerous bar areas, or self-consciously gyrate in the cavernous main dance floor pumping techno beats at the center of the club.
