NYC Bars Where You Can Dance

NYC Socialista for Bars Where You Can Dance

You’re never too old to go out dancing. That’s like saying you’ve aged out of fun, and you’re not that person. Too old to wait in line for sure, though you never did that anyway, even in the heyday of Bungalow 8. But where do you go nowadays in NYC, where the music will just own you? This is your list of NYC bars where you can dance, because you’re no wallflower.

There’s nothing worse than arriving at the second location to find it isn’t bumping. We’ve got you. Here are the best NYC bars where you can dance. Warning: These aren’t for the weak. These places are for the nights when you let your inner wild child loose.

Aman Jazz Club

There are some occasions, and some party partners, that require only the most upscale and exclusive dance floor. Aman is inherently that, and their hidden Jazz Club is no less. Beneath the world’s most expensive urban hotel is a speakeasy-style bar where, after midnight, you can dance.

The Jazz Club is less club than some of our other picks on this list and is truly a bar where you can dance. Before the DJ takes over the aux, there are live performances from notable groups ranging from jazz to blues. This means that you get to enjoy a more relaxed cocktail at your table before getting up to boogie. It’s nice to have a bar where you can dance and chill at the same time.

And while the DJ knows how to get people of all ages on their feet, the vibe is shaped by more than just the high energy. Bartenders, waiters, and various other workers continuously pace the space to make sure everything stays in pristine condition. The result becomes a safe and clean space that facilitates intimacy across the entire room. And because many who come are members, there’s a familiarity between the whole crowd — from guests to service workers — that sets itself apart in a public bar in NYC.

Socialista

File this one under Hall of Fame in NYC. There are few groups that so controversially but so flawlessly provide the exclusive hospitality like the Ciprianis. Their Soho restaurant is always packed with the most easy on the eyes people in NYC. It’s a place that even high profile celebrities grace with their presence, along with a bevy of Super Models and elegant Europeans. If you ever want a quintessential New York experience among the beautiful people, Cipriani is your spot on any given weekday and especially weekend.

On the weekends, there’s a room above Cipriani that becomes quite the den of debauchery, which is their private club Socialista. They now have outposts from Dubai to Miami, but there’s nothing like the original. Like Cipriani does, they curate the crowd with one of the toughest doorwomen in the industry. Once you are lucky enough to get upstairs, it’s a party. No matter what age you are, this is where you want to be to feel like you have not a worry in the world.

Georgia Room

Remember The Jane? Well, that closed, but the same group now owns Georgia Room, and if you remember anything about The Jane, you’ll be obsessed. Georgia Room is both timelessly classy and refreshingly tailored to the next generation of partiers. Like anywhere in NYC, there’s a little bit of a tough door. If you aren’t purchasing a table, you will probably have to wait. But the popularity of Georgia Room — not the bouncers — is to blame for the line.

Unlike other NYC bars where you can dance, the ethos of the lounge isn’t inherently exclusive. In fact, they pride themselves on being an environment inclusive of people from all walks of life. The Georgia in Georgia Room references Georgia O’Keefe who is the fearless and powerful muse of the space. Her story inspired the creation of an upscale club and lounge where there isn’t a social barrier to entry.

The result is an NYC bar where you can dance defined by cool and artsy young Manhattanites looking to show off their creative outfits before tearing it up on the dance floor. Inside, a giant disco ball, bar, and separate, more intimate lounge create a vibe that yields mingling in open and less public spaces. Plus, the music never misses, and the party goes on until the wee hours of the night.

Joyface

Eighties music is our guilty pleasure. To be clear, it doesn’t take growing up in the 80s for the power of ABBA and Donna Summer to translate. The Mama Mia soundtrack just makes you want to move your body. This is the premise of Joyface, whose name really says it all. Joyface plays nostalgic music and nostalgic music only. The songs are, however, covered and warped over house beats, perhaps to comprise a little with the younger generation. This is, after all, an NYC bar where you can dance.

The vibe is theme party all the time. Everyone including the bouncers comes dressed on theme, and bold looks are highly embraced. If you wear glitter, you’ll be glowing from the reflection of the disproportionately huge disco ball that hangs above the bar. However, across from the bar, the small dance floor is framed by velvet couches, which gives the room a living room vibe.

Joyface has an easier door, as well, although the space is small, so there’s usually a line on the weekends. That being said, Joyface is our weeknight pick for this very reason. It’s a Friday night party every night.

Virgo

Virgos get a rep for their organized, civil, and logical personalities. But we all know that Virgos have a wild side. Perhaps the team behind the EDM bar in LES had a similar idea in mind when they came up with Virgo. The basement club is one of the few NYC bars where you can dance with electronic beats are all that play.

The L-shaped space is dark and minimal, which makes every corner and table feel private, even the comfy seats. The dance floor has smoke and lights that also add to the EDM experience. It’s the type of place where you can pretend you’re at a Berlin electronic club. There’s just the right mix of velvet and grit.

They host events with DJs, and you might have to make sure that you get on the list. Usually, you just might have to time it right to avoid the line.
