Space Ibiza New York
637 West 50th Street
New York, NY 10019
Things you think are big: The tab you ran up at the bar last night, the rat you saw on the subway and your chances with that awesome blonde you met last week.
Things that are actually big: The ridiculously long line at Shake Shack, that stain on your shirt, and Space Ibiza New York.
Introducing Space Ibiza New York, the brand new, gigantic 20,000 square foot dance club, that’s finally putting the “life” back into Manhattans night life.
When you first walk in, the first thing you’ll see is the main floor, which is also probably the biggest floor you’ll ever see in your life. This is where you can dance to whoever the big DJ is that night (word on the street is that the resident DJ is Victor Calderone, but guest DJ’s like Skrillex and Diplo are bound to stop by), and watch the go-go dancers that were brought over directly from Ibiza (ya know, where this club originated), while disco balls move like magic across the floor.
After a few hours of partying your pants off with a thousand of your closest friends (yes, the dance floor can actually hold that many people), you’ll most likely need to take a breather for a minute. Grab a drink at the bar and then head to one of the shipping containers. No, we’re not trying to make a Law and Order type situation happen; there’s actually a secret lounge that’s hidden in one of the containers where you can sit and catch your breath for a minute, or take a quick nap so you can make it until the sun comes up. Rumor has it that at 5:00 am they open the shutters of floor-to-ceiling windows and unveil the sun rising over the Hudson to those who have the stamina to last until then (no pressure bud).
So yeah, hit up Space Ibiza New York for a good time this weekend, and show all of your ladies how big it is… we’re still talking about the club, get your mind out of the gutter.
