Dating In New York
When we speak of hot night clubs, we speak of unique spots ideal for a second or third date where you can dance or just listen to music. These spots are not ideal for a first date because they are simply too loud and would not allow for much one on one conversation. However, they are very much conducive to breaking the ice and allowing you to display your skills on the dance floor.
China Club (10)
This is one hot spot that knows how to pack them in. The trick to having a great time with a lady friend here is to arrive early. In order to keep the female to male ratio in harmony, this club without exception will not allow single guys to walk in without the company of a female, so with that said do not make the mistake of meeting your lady friend inside the club. On most Saturday nights you will spot a celebrity here and there. The ambience is classy and the music mix is second to none.

Naked Lunch (7)
If you are in the soho area, and want to have a great night out, then this is the spot to hit.
