Concierge.com's insider take:
Nine seriously hot nightspots take up 60,000 square feet inside this 1927 former power plant, which offers fickle revelers the flexibility to move between scenes. Live R&B and soul tunes draw regulars to the Boiler Room lounge, and Dragonfly gives visitors a chance to hear the latest in Mandarin Chinese pop. Movida throbs with African, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean rhythms, while faux-crocodile sofas and exposed brick give Bar None a New York loft vibe. The 10,000-square-foot dance floor and near-deafening sound system at Powerhouse draw the dance crowd nightly. Those who prefer to play voyeur while quietly quaffing can settle into the plush seats at Gallery Bar; its windowed second-story perch overlooks all this youthful exuberance.
Open daily 6 pm to 6 am.
