Hip locals no longer congregate in the Meatpacking District—they moved on when word got out. But that doesn't mean this liquor-fueled playground should be avoided altogether; it still swarms with energy after dark. Cielo holds its own, largely because of its singular focus on booking top-notch DJs. François K spins at the Deep Space party on Monday nights, and Junior Vasquez makes an appearance at least once a month. The club's sunken dance floor is great for voyeurs and exhibitionists alike, and—bucking the district's standard MO—there is no cordoned-off VIP section. Early in the evening, you might find wide-eyed tourists and an older crowd trying to stay hip, but as the night wears on, the dub and deep-house grooves eventually coax even the most jaded scenesters through the doors and onto the dance floor.

Closed Tuesdays and some Sundays.
