Edit Business Info
This smart-looking dance hall, named after William Burroughs's famous book, is a good place to spot the occasional celeb. Conspicuously located on the corner of Thompson and Grand Street, Naked Lunch is one of SoHo's favorite places for salsa and great 80's tunes on the weekends. After work, it's not uncommon to see a few business types here, waiting for the party to start and tossing back a cold brew. During the summer, the club's front panels open out to the street, making the scene even cooler. If you don't mind gawkers, you're welcome to start shaking your booty early. TRAIN: 1, 9, A, C, E to Canal St
Best for Dance Clubs Because: The DJ-spun R&B and '80s hits will get you to bust a move or two.
