New York City Nightlife



Element Review

Bank, striptease joint, dance club, studio for the painter Jasper Johns—what hasn't this gargantuan space been in its former lives? Well, it's a dance club again, with all the usual fixings—VIP section, megawatt sound system blaring techno, flashing lights that can induce epilepsy—but there are some groovy touches: brick walls with candles, and the beautiful downstairs lounge called the Vault. Even though it's not quite as chic as it was when it opened, that just means the velvet ropes will part for you much more readily.
