The Westway

75 Clarkson St. New York, NY 10014 | West Village | 212-620-0101

Location Description:

Westway owners Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirate, known for past collaborations at the Jane Ballroom and the Smile, re-imagined this former West Village gentlemen's club as a trendy discotheque. An unassuming exterior in an industrial corridor near the West Side Highway is a surprising contrast from the four large rooms inside. Despite its size, the Westway is nearly always packed, with a line forming outside. The interior retains some of its former...charm, with glittery black walls, large mirrors, and a multicolored dance floor. One of the showgirl stages, converted into a DJ booth, creates a very hip vibe. The music is eclectic, ranging from Top 40 to classic pop and dance hits. Guest DJs play frequently, and often unannounced. --Gabriel Herrera
