New York

“Are you on the guest-list? Bottle-service only. It’s a private party.”

These are some of the usual doorman greetings at the entry of an exclusive New York venue.
First, lets review the facts: There are over 1,000 nightlife establishments in New York City, of which 80% are located in Manhattan. These are clubs, lounges and bars, squeezed in land area of just 305 square miles (790 km), which generate an estimated $1.3 billion in direct revenues, separate from the restaurant and hospitality businesses. With so many choices in nightlife, no wonder New Yorkers have no time to sleep!

Still, it turns out that less than 5% of these venues are considered “hot spots.” These places typically host many fashion and Hollywood parties and are routinely visited by A-listers and are covered in entertainment news. So what’s special about these types of venues? Small footprint, unique attributes, and beautiful decors are just to name a few. But most importantly, gaining entry into these handful of venues is extremely difficult and typically requires not just lots of money, but also knowing the right people.
