Last night I stopped by one of the opening parties for The Raven, the newest club in the Meatpacking District. Taking over the space formerly occupied by Gun Bar, the decor of the club is inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe poem of the same name. Dark and sexy, the booths fill the nooks and crannies of the space making for a seemingly more intimate experience than most clubs in the city.
The lineup of DJs, playing in a booth meant to resemble an old fireplace, will be legendary, making it a great place to go dance; also, the servers are as gorgeous as the clientele, making it perfect for a guys’ night out. Other than that, The Raven is a good spot for bottle service, girls’ nights out and meeting hot girls.
Good For Meeting Hot Girls: The typical “new club” mix of models and the like are sure to frequent the space throughout at least the next few months. Also, as previously mentioned, you can always hit on your server – they’ve done a great job of procuring some serious eye candy.
Good For Girls’ Nights Out: As with all clubs, definitely try to keep the group to a minimum in order to increase your chances of getting in the door. Once inside, though, it’s a great place to dance and mingle (or dodge those coming on to you) with girl friends.
