Jeremy Scott's designs are many things, but subtle is not one of them. The quirky fashion designer created the interior of this strangely named club, and the decor practically screams, "I was designed by a super-fabulous, downtown, ultra-gay fashionista!" Or it could be screaming, "Gay! I'm really fucking gay! Gay! Gay! Gay!" I couldn't tell, I'm going deaf.

For most people, going to a club is ultimately about getting laid, so Scott decided to hammer that home with a mural behind the bar that depicts a woman's legs in thigh-high stockings and high heels, spread-eagled. From any angle, anyone getting a drink appears to have his head in a woman's crotch. Nice one! And since we are all starsaor wanna be starsawhat better way to make everyone feel famous than to have the walls plastered with big gold stars? I couldn't decide which design I liked best: the Saturday Night Fever lighted disco floor serving as the entrance to the bathrooms, the toilet seats and sinks adorned with disco ball mirrors, or the DJ boothaa gargantuan floating disco ball in the sky. The only thing that would have made the DJ booth more perfect would be if it rotatedawhich wouldn't be very fun for the DJ stuck inside, but would be fantastic for the rest of us.
