Artichoke and Avenue
If the full menu at Avenue isn't enough to satisfy your hunger inside of a club, Artichoke Pizzeria is right on the corner of 10th Avenue and 17th Street.
Started in Staten Island, Artichoke became famous for its notably large slices and signature Artichoke slice. If waiting on the long line outside of Artichoke at 3 AM doesn't sound like your idea of fun, you can order a pie to the table if you have a bottle reservation.
Avenue is one of Strategic Group's smaller ventures in the nightlife industry. While they may be more well known for their mega-club brands such as Lavo and Marquee, one can't deny that Avenue is a great night out. This boutique nightclub features dark wood paneling, a new lighting system, and a lofted VIP section above the DJ booth.
If this isn't enough to make you attempt to pass the velvet ropes guarded by doorman/actor Wass Stevens, the nightclub also features a full menu prepared by Chef Roble. The menu features Asian inspired dishes and American favorites such as slider burgers prepared with Pat La-Freida beef and kung pao chicken satays.
