My fellow millennials, put away your selfie sticks and avocado toast because this new club doesn't want to be on fleek. Or bomb. Or dope.
For those who would rather trade thumping house music for Donna Summer, Madonna and the Bee Gees, you'll dig this new dance hall and bar.
RetroClubNYC officially opened its doors last Thursday 161 West 23rd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.
This venue caters to the 30 to 35+ crowd by featuring throwbacks from the '70s, '80s, and '90s and aims to evoke the clubs of those past eras.
"It's a lot about recognition -- playing a song that people knew from back in a time when they used to go out." said owner, Jeff Wittels.
When Wittels would hit NYC night clubs, he didn't recognize the blaring beats and felt lost among all the twentysomethings. Where, he wondered, did people over 35 go to dance and party?
That inspired him to create a bar space to celebrate the discotheques of old and give patrons a dance down memory lane. The front includes velvet-covered lounge area while the back is pure disco dance floor.
A long bar runs throughout the venue, serving drinks that stay true to its vintage vibes. Customers can sip sloe gin fizzes, Red Devils and Long Island iced teas to their hearts' content.
But if you're a twentysomething who wants to jam out to some groovy tunes, RetroNYC won't turn you away. That's good news for those of us who grew up listening to our parents' music and feel just as down with Blondie as we are with Beyonce.
And it's not all throwbacks, either. The club also plays contemporary tunes like Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" reminiscent of bygone eras.[Feature Image Courtesy Chelsea Now] [via Time Out]
