he Up And Down nightclub in New York is a trendy venue for New York's young and energetic crowd. You will have a great time
The decor is very Hollywood. Black and white flooring in stripes and checkers is very eye catching and fun. There are bare bulb lights alongside strip lights and extravagant chandeliers. Oddly, for a place with so much lighting it is actually pretty dark inside. Sometimes it can take a few minutes for your eyes to get used to the rooms, but once you do it is actually pretty cool, with a sort of Gothic nightclub vibe.
The dance floor at this New York night club is quite wide open, with plenty of space for dancing, mingling, and talking. As the night carries on it gets pretty packed and busy, with sexy bodies everywhere dancing to the beats.
The bar is literally glowing, like a beacon to club goers. The drinks selection is pretty good, but they are catering to much younger tastes with the brands and cocktails they are serving. The prices are typical Manhattan prices, that is to say high, but not so high you wouldn't want to pay them.
The DJ booth at Up And Down in New York is very visible and you will find it easy to walk up and see what they're doing. They have different DJs almost every night, and the beats can vary from hip hop to electronica, from house to top 40, depending on who's playing. The DJs also vary in quality, so you might not get the music you were expecting when you walk in, or the music might change a bit as the night goes on. Overall the music is very danceable and fun, and generally up to date.
There is a distinct lack of tables in many parts of this New York nightclub, which some may find frustrating. Not having anywhere to put your drink, even for a moment, unless you reserve a table can get annoying, and you may want to reserve a table or stay near the bar if you are more into drinking and people watching than dancing.
The clientele is mostly young women looking to have a fun night out. For that reason security can be very tight, especially towards older men or groups including older men. It's nothing personal, more of a safety thing than anything else. If you are queuing patiently and the night isn't busy you have a good chance of getting in. The cover charge is moderate for women, but high for men. If you are a young woman you may get in for free or get a complementary drink.
Otherwise, get on the guest list or book a table and bottle service. You stand a much better chance of getting in if you have reservations and if you are dressed smart and sexy for the night. No strict dress code as such, just look modern, on trend, clean, and polished
