I have no clue about the house music scene, but there are a lot of rock clubs in the east and west village if that's your thing.

What kind of food do you want for dinner? What's your budget?

House music + hockey don't mix, this is not the crowd to ask.

The house scene in Manhattan isn't what it once was, but Cielo on little west 12th is definitely worth checking out.

so you checked the right thread, decided not to post there, and made a new OT topic on the same subject?

Like The Hot Rock and DruMez said, Pacha and Cielo are both good places for house music, but they are different atmospheres.. Pacha is much more huge and more of a lively club, but Cielo in my opinion plays better, harder house music, and is much more intimate and small. It's a much cooler chill out place, but Pacha you party hard! Hope my opinion helps.

Theres more to it than you think.

Just gotta listen to the right djs. Not a fan of the KTU crap if thats what your thinking.

More eclectic stuff. Minimal, progressive.


Anyhow, i sent him a pm!

Oh btw, im a big rock fan too - i know you gotta band - good luck with it.

Yeah, I admit, I don't know much about house music, bit of a Rock n Roll snob and not ashamed of it

That's weird. Sure, the majority of hockey fans are into rock. But if you asked me a second genre of music associated with hockey it'd be techno/house music. Ever see that guy in the 300's with the blowout in his beater, swinging his tee to benny benassi? or the czech's waving their flag ferociously to darude/sandstorm?

(you'd even see a good portion of the 2008 draft class list this type of music as their favorite, which was interesting to see nonetheless)

House music is like hockey, those who like it are freakin' passionate about it.

I know nothing about House music so I won't even try to advise you in that department. If your looking for a good brick oven pizza in the times square area there is a place called Johns (i think) on 44st, between 7th and 8th ave. It is closer to 8th avenue on 44th. The place looks like it use to be an old church, pretty cool decor and the brick oven pizza is very good a reasonably priced. Have Fun.

I would check out Meatpacking District and Chelsea. Cielo, Tenjune, Cain, Mansion, Prime, Guesthouse, Marquee are some to name. Element and Libation in the Lower East Side. Make sure the night's you're looking to go out have the dj's spinning the right types of music.

Yeap, depends what he's looking for. For first time visiting, if you just want the huge, crazy club experience, go with Pacha. But yea, if you're just more into the music and hanging out then Cielo probably cannot be topped.

Faluka on Bleeker off of Sullivan is a good hookah lounge that plays a lot of house/trance. It's good all 7 nights out of the week, including Sunday though my favorite nights are Tuesdays and Wed. but it's the only for sure bet on a Sunday night, you'll be dancing, drinking, smoking 'til 4 AM Monday morning.

I don't know if there is anything going on at Pacha on Sunday but it's worth a shot, not really sure of the street but its around 48th and 12 Ave.

Also check Crobar if that's still in existence, I haven't been down there in a while.

After a long night of booze, there's nothing better than Big Nick's to get your grub on.. 78th and Broadway.

Well look at it this way, you have the tanned, built Guido with the blowout haircut OR you have a guy in tight latex pants or ridiculously long hair, most probably overweight, and still lives in his moms basement. Every scene has its downs

The good part about the club scene is the girls are just stunning, especially in the city! Can't find that at a rock concert unless its a crack ho.

IMO best pizza place in the city is Freddy & Peppers on 303 Amsterdam [just off Broadway]. It may not be the most traditional, but those guys will wow you with their selection. They do serve typical NY pizza, but the guys who run it are from Chile and they have a ton of latin american food and pizza toppings. Last time I was there, I got spicy chicken with goat cheese and chili peppers and I still haven't forgotten how fantastic it was.

You can try Sullivan Room in the Village near COmedy Cellar. It isn't the best place tho, but its def underground.
