Diamond Horseshoe

Glitz. Grandiosity. History. The Diamond Horseshoe, a reinvented palace of pleasure that boomed during the 1940s, is back and better than ever. Guests descend down a majestic spiral staircase and into a huge ballroom, with multiple bars and stages, where dancers and performers contort and sway in a seductive series of spectacles. The space hosts the hit dinner show Queen of The Night, an interactive evening of cuisine and spellbinding cabaret (see www.queenofthenightnyc.com for tickets).

Don't Tell Mama

This popular cabaret, piano bar and restaurant showcases established and up-and-coming performers nightly. From 9 pm on, waiters and bartenders sing at the piano bar; there is also an open mic for guests to join in the fun. 

Doux Supperclub

A Parisian-style café offers guests custom liquor-infused chocolates and craft cocktails at the forefront of this brand new Flatiron District venue, while a 2,000-square-foot supperclub in the back hosts themed brunch and dinner parties with rotating live jazz performances and burlesque shows. 

Dream Beach

Wiggle your toes in the sand, stretch out on a chaise lounge by the glass-bottomed pool, cool off with a Citrus Smack (Don Julio Blanco, Canton, agave, lemon) and swim with the fishes (chipotle honey-glazed salmon) at Chelsea’s answer to Saint-Tropez. Nightly 5:30-10:30 p.m.

Drunken Munkey NYC

Imbibing gets the imperial treatment at this hub of colonial-era cocktails, an Upper East Side bar and eatery inspired by the tastes and aesthetics of British-occupied India. The two venerable cultures blend beautifully on the drinks menu, featuring a host of gin-centric, Anglo-inspired sips (such as the Army & Navy: London dry gin, lemon juice, almond syrup) and booze-packed punches (which originated in 17th-Century India). Cocktails can be paired with a selection of curries and South Asian savories. Take a cue from the grinning monkey statues that inhabit the haunt and go bananas.

Duane Park

Seasonal American food with a Southern accent whets the appetite for jazz and burlesque entertainment at this swank supper club.

Shows: Tu-Sa
