Known to be one of the most difficult doors in the city, you’ll need a connection or great looking friends to get past the door staff at Avenue. Assuming you’re able to gain entry to this Chelsea enclave, it will become apparent that jumping through a hoop or two was worth the trouble. Like other popular city haunts, Avenue provides all of the trappings that the well-to-do clientele expects. Beautifully designed and decorated, the lounge is bathed in dark woods and accented with spectacular chandeliers and mirrors. The intimate setting is ideal for enjoying bottle service with friends, as the DJ spins from the second floor. Perhaps unexpected for a first time visitor, Avenue also serves up an interesting and tasty selection of food offerings. Once your eyes have feasted on the lovely space and patrons, order up some pretzel dogs and lobster rolls to regain your energy. A few treats will give you just the strength needed to take it late into the night on the dance floor.
