Best Place to Bliss Out on a Carpet (2008)

La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela's Dream House

Of course you could repose in the splendor of your own home, but you ain't gonna come anywhere near nirvana unless you have four wall-sized speakers blasting full-volume sine tones at you. Now going on its eighth year in Tribeca, LA MONTE YOUNG AND MARIAN ZAZEELA'S DREAM HOUSE is the place to be for the spiritually wayward and weary. After discarding your shoes, you're free to roam around to explore the neon ceiling signs and magenta-lighted mobiles. You "play" the space, with every movement of your body slightly transforming the sounds you hear. Once you situate yourself, sprawl out in the lush, pillow-strewn, upholstered atmosphere for a half-day. I dare you to find a chill-out room at any club to match this sound environment from the daddy of minimalism and his wife. Open September 22-June 22 each year, Thursdays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. to midnight.
