It used to be a Bombay paradise called Earth. The spicy Indian cuisine transformed essentially overnight into one of the world's hottest and most exclusive clubs. Welcome to Avenue. Intimate conversation is integral at Avenue, as there is a DJ booth but no dance floor. The space is dark and narrow, urging guests to move in closer to each other. We're sure they won't mind though, as Avenue is known for having one of the most beautiful crowds in the NYC nightlife scene. So get cozy with your favorite cocktail and start schmoozing!
New York, NY 10010
What was once Strata is now the decadent and celebrity-infused Crimson. The space on Broadway has, for many years, played host to some of New York's hottest names.

Divided in two rooms with New York's hottest DJs spinning the best hip hop, house, and classics on their state-of-the-art sound system, with intelligent lighting and special effects. Beautiful Crimson red decor, big seating area for table service clients and three big bars, you don't need to wait long for your favorite drinks.
