NYC Nightlife: Home and GuesthouseJanuary 13, 2009 - by Ellis Whitman
Fraternal-twin nightspots Home & Guest House—known for their social scene (i.e., “beautiful people”) and difficult-to-pass velvet ropes (so dress to the nines)—both feature a sexy atmosphere and similarly rich decor featuring comfort and style.
Home is carefully designed to service your every whim in complete luxury, including bottle service, and the nightclub hosts daily themed parties with music spun by special guest DJs. Red-dyed wooden floors, tufted black leather ceilings and miles of plush couches are geared for the service and style expected by A-listers.
If you’re celebrity watching, Home is frequented by many, including Jessica Simpson, Fergie, Lindsay Lohan, Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, and Derek Jeter. Celebs, cutting-edge design, and location, location, location—are all reasons to come Home.
Featured cocktails include: the Dreamsicle, a heavenly blend of Grey Goose L’Orange, Grand Marnier, lemon juice and a splash of Champagne; Red Sapphires, a spicy mix of Bombay Sapphire Gin, Triple Sec, lemon juice and Sloe Gin; and the Ten Grand, Tanqueray 10, Grand Marnier and lime juice.
Home has cozy corners, a raucous dance area, and lots of nooks and crannies where clubbies can chat up significant others make this a standout in the booming nightclub society.
Guest House boasts sexy décor designed by Steve Lewis Design (Marquee, Butter, Spa) and Antonio Di Oronzo (Bluarch Architecture and Interiors), and a similarly exclusive door policy as well as some of the hottest house music DJs in the world.
Guest House, connected to Home by an interior hallway, features an ambience reminiscent of a mysterious Victorian parlor with dark woods, crème and chocolate Damask wall coverings, and deep wine-colored hardwood floors. The main feature of the U-shaped room is a mahogany-stained wall with recessed candles that illuminate the entire room in sensuous amber light. Exposed brick, a copper-topped bar, and leather wall panels complete the coziness of this spacious venue.
For holiday parties they have two distinctive spaces. Home accommodates 500 guests with an outdoor, tented garden, and Guest House accommodates 500+ guests; and for larger parties the two venues can be connected by a short hallway for up to 1000 guests.
