JULIET SUPPER CLUB
After a long battle, Juliet Supper Club surrenders from their fight to stay open after the landlord filed a complaint for eviction. The club has been closed for the past three weeks due to many disreputable acts that have taken place in the club. The celebrity hot-spot opened back in 2009 and since then has entertained various celebrity types.
There's one DJ that you will always find at the best hip hop parties in the city: DJ SussOne. While I usually head to open format places like Avenue, SL and 1oak when I go out, I decided last Monday that I would venture to Juliet Supperclub for the Keri Hilson album release party. I didn't really recognize her, she was wearing this new bleach blonde Lady Gaga-ish weave. Truthfully, not sure who her stylist is, but Keri should "knock her down." Only Lady Gaga can pull off a wig like that. Keri has looked wayyyy better.
Yes, like most B list celebs who get paid to go to a nightclub, she came late and didn't stay long. (Sounds like a bad boyfriend.) It's kind of insane when you really think about how much these "celebs" are getting paid just to show up somewhere then leave after a half hour. The funniest is when they leave and then go to another club, one that didn't pay them.
You can’t help it. You leave state and everyone gawks. No, no booger in your nose. Is it your high top Dunks? Your blow-out? Your puma-like walking pace?
Whatever it is about you, it’s decidedly New York. And you can’t escape it. That’s why at the Winter Music Conference you share dance space with the same people, attend the same parties, at the same places. (The following can be combined for all plausible possibilities: Danny Tenaglia, marathon, Space Terrace, Victor Calderone, Boris, Surfcomber, Shelbourne.)
But hold on. These names are at the very end of a long line of local NYC DJs-- Exacta and Merritt, Sleepy & Boo, Tedd Patterson, Cevin Fisher-- who’s local residencies have led to (inter)national success.
Below is a list of the top 5 upcoming New York City DJs. Support your local scene and go see them while they still play for free before midnight.
1. Michael Anthony
Prophetic even in name, Michael Anthony sees himself as “herding an eclectic mix of wolves of sheep.” Revolutionary and brash, he explains how he got into house music; “I thought it was fascinating how some DJs just made the crowd straight up blow them for hours on end. I kind of thought to myself, wow, I want a crowd to blow me too. Then, it all kind of meshed together.” (Sex, music and Michael Anthony).
Chelsea's finest supperclub, Juliet, known for its A-list parties, top DJs, and delicious dinners is celebrating their one year anniversary tonight with special guest celeb DJ Samantha Ronson. Reservations are recommended, especially for dinner, as Juliet is home to packed VIP tables with models, socialites, and the hippest eye candy in town.
New York nightlife owner Jon B. along with Greenhouse and Juliet Supper Club will be adding a new member to their staff to replace Vegas-bound Megan Gaver. Shawn Kwek will be leaving his position as Director of Promotions at Strike Holdings which operates the nightclub Carnival and will be taking a new role as Director of Marketing with Jon B. and his properties. Through his corporate experience at Strike Holdings, he hopes to bring his expertise to this new role. This move will give Shawn a prime role in the marketing strategies of Greeenhouse, Juliet Supper Club as well as the Sundance Film Festival.
Juliet Supper Club, one of the few reasons I still party in Chelsea, is closed down this week due to a smoking violation. The hotspot has to dish out $19,400 in fines due to it's unruly nicotine addicted patrons and has to present a detailed plan to city officials of how they will combat the problem in the future. I have personally witnessed bouncers escort smokers out of the club and know that they do not condone smoking in any form, even those ridiculous looking smoke-free electronic ones. So sorry Romeos, you will have to wait one week for your Juliet.
New York nightlife owner Jon B. along with Greenhouse and Juliet Supper Club have lost Megan Gaver to the TAO Group in Las Vegas. Megan will be taking the position of Director of Business Affairs for TAO and will be opening The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas in December 2010.
