"Exclusive" barely hints at what this chic ultra-lounge is all about. Sleek yet classy, refined yet sexy, Marquee's evocative layout is truly a piece of art unto itself: vaulted ceilings, a "wishbone" staircase that leads to the VIP area upstairs, pendant fixtures, a grand "disco" chandelier and a dance floor flanked by comfortable banquettes. After a recent revamp, this Meatpacking District spot is now primarily trance- and house-centric, with fog machines, go-go dancers and Wall Street types swilling magnums of champagne. Gaining admittance can be quite a feat on certain nights, so be sure to dress your best and bring along a few pretty faces. Subway: C, E to 23rd St.
Best for Dance Clubs Because: Marquee's recent renovation--including the scratch-'n-sniff wallpaper in the restrooms--heralds its return as a top NYC superclub.
