A night on the town in NYC isn’t always cheap, but now with the updated uberX prices, at least your ride is more affordable. NYC is known for being the city that doesn’t sleep, so we wanted to find where the majority of people are going out to dance, imbibe, and meet up with friends. Here are the standings based on last week’s anonymized Uber trip data:
1. Up & Down | West Village
Last week was likely a busy time for Up & Down considering all of the Fashion Week events and parties. But even without fashion insiders and models on the loose, this West Village hotspot always attracts a crowd.
2. Lavo | Midtown
Whether it’s Thursday night or Saturday afternoon, you can always find a party at Lavo.
3. The Box | Lower East Side
Only those prepared for an altogether unique club experience brave The Box, and it looks like that included a lot of people last week.
4. Brooklyn Bowl | Williamsburg
5. Baby’s All Right | Williamsburg
Baby’s All Right has certainly made its mark on the Williamsburg nightlife scene. Known for having secret shows and eclectic bands and DJs, this music venue/restaurant lures all sorts of crowds.
6. Output | Williamsburg
Output boasts one of the best sound systems in all of NYC and books well-known DJs from all over the world. With multiple rooms featuring various DJs playing on any given day, a night out at Output guarantees dancing.
7. Marquee | Chelsea
Tiësto, one of the world’s most popular DJs, performed at Marquee last Saturday night, so it’s not surprising that so many people made it their destination.
8. 1 OAK | Chelsea
You never know which celebrity you’ll run into when you end the night at 1 OAK—especially during Fashion Week.
9. Houston Hall | West Village
For those who prefer beer halls over nightclubs—Houston Hall is the top pick. The massive West Village beer garden is perfect for large groups looking to prost.
10. Freehold | Williamsburg
11. Hotel Chantelle | Lower East Side
For many New Yorkers, Hotel Chantelle is considered an LES “classic.” It typically attracts a younger nightlife crowd, but both college students and young professionals alike go for the rooftop brunches on weekends.
12. Employees Only | West Village
Employees Only has some of the best craft cocktails you can find in the city, so it’s no wonder why so many people flock there on nights and weekends.
13. Good Room | Greenpoint

14. 230 Fifth | Flatiron
