In this time of venue and general nightlife uncertainty in NYC, we'll take what we can get, and so it is with some happiness that we hail the opening of District 36, a new club opening this weekend at 29 W. 36th Street. An SOTC operative who has visited the place already tells us the concept is pretty much old-school NYC nightlife, but with a really super epic soundsystem and minimal pretension (no strict dress code, bottle service frowned upon though still sorta extant, and art installations from Mint & Serf, the same people who did the Ace Hotel). 14,000 square feet, 900 person capacity; local promoters Blkmarket seem to handling most of the booking so far, and local house music OG Victor Calderone will have a monthly residency. Check it out in person this Saturday, when Blkmarket presents a grand opening party with Lee Burridge vs. Danny Howells and Taimur & Fahad:
And here are few shots of the interior, which does indeed look very Ace Hotel-like:
