Great job this weekend. Quality Saturdaying. And that Sunday: textbook. But now it’s time to go to work.
The important work of partying. Every night. Herewith, your weeknight frolicking options. Because you’re
an adult, and school nights don’t exist anymore.
Sunset Swimclub at the Dream Downtown
The Scene: A post-work (wherein the word “work” is in air quotes) beach party with DJs
spinning Top 40 while you enjoy alcoholized Kelvin slushies in a cabana. The Saturdayest Monday of all
time. Hashtags: #acaseofthefundays #creativeunemployment #cabanalogy #chaisetherainbow
Tuesdays at Lil Charlie’s
The Scene: The late-night hip-hop entrancements of DJ Vikas luring people from their
scallops and tartare upstairs at Ken & Cook down to the snug, brass-chain-ceilinged wonderland that is
this place. Hashtags: #dontforgetyourdrink #sweatyinagoodway #wecoulddothisallnight
Night of the Jaguar at Los Americanos
The Scene: A deep-into-the-AM Latin vibe with Mexican fernet shots getting passed around,
tacos al pastor tasting better with every passing hour and a delightfully ambiguous dance-floor situation.
Hint: they can’t/won’t stop you. Hashtags: #goodbaddecisions #yourhipsdontlie #gimmesixmoretacos
The Scene: A rock-and-roll supper club with a band called Heathens providing the
soundtrack. Think oversize leather booths, taxidermied crows and, if you get with UD Perks, some cocktails and bacon cracker jack. (Yes, bacon cracker
jack.) Hashtags: #keepnotsleeping #heathensandhedons #keepchelseaweird
W Gangs of New York at the W Hotel
The Scene: A Warriors-inspired DJ battle that’s already seen Grandmaster Flash,
Yeasayer and Dirty Projectors compete. It goes from W to W each week, and you’re free to clink
bottles. Hashtags: #comeoutandplay #cardboardboxheadspins #adidastracksuitchic
