Be it the music, the dancing lights, the lounges, the drinks and the pretty faces, NYC nightclubs have everything one would expect to find in a nightclub, with an advantage that it will engulf the visitor within a snap. The aura and the vibe of New York nightclubs is what it makes people to stay awake the whole night with their feet thumping and body moving.
