Best New Dance Floor - 2008
Santos' Party House
After three years in the making, Santos' Party House finally opened the doors to its 8,000-square-foot, multilevel space last June (or May, depending on whom you talk to and whether or not they got in)?and the party has rarely stopped since then. Legendary Studio 54 stalwart Nicky Siano spins on Sunday nights; A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip joins DJ Rich Medina on Fridays; and every other Wednesday belongs to Special Disco Version, which puts the dance floor in the incredibly capable hands of LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Pat Mahoney. Add one-offs with co-owner Andrew WK himself, and you've got the one Manhattan club for which the hip kids will actually cross the river to dance.
