Day & Night Brunch Club at the Highline Ballroom

For world-and-party-weary New Yorkers, boozy brunch is no longer enough. (Please, don’t even talk about “breakfast.”) We need all-out brunch partays. That’s why we recommend you check out the ever-so-decadent and always satisfying Day & Night Brunch Club that takes place on Saturdays at the Highline Ballroom.

Arguably one of the most well-known of the disco brunches, Day & Night Brunch Club is an extravagant celebration inspired by the exhilarating debauchery of all-day parties in St. Tropez and St. Barthes. Taking after their European inspiration - the bash also boasts its fair share of international jet-setters carousing in the Big Apple - the party delivers the ingenious combo of fabulous brunch and fashionable rave to present a unique indulgent atmosphere (#daydrinking) unlike anything else we’ve seen.
