Concealed under an office high-rise in FiDi, NYC's newest hot spot, Mailroom, is bustling with after-dark cool kids every night of the week. The brainchild of WeWork CEO Adam Neumann and The Surf Lodge owner and tastemaker Jayma Cardoso, it's been an inevitable success, managing to get downtown nightlife scenesters even further below Canal. Seriously, who knew Wall Street would become the next "It" hood?
The incredible space is a nod to Mad Men - sleek, classic, but with some modern flair. "Inspiration came from the modernist design cues of the 1950s and '60s,” says Robert McKinley, creative director of Mailroom. “It’s layered with rich woods, brass details, and shots of color."
Not only does the space serve as a buzzy go-to featuring A-list DJs like Mark Ronson and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, as well as performances by Gucci Mane and Mike D of the Beastie Boys, it boasts earlier weekday programming that's a little more chill and just as cool.
Click through for a closer look at the exclusive spot's weekly slate, including live music, comedy, and game nights.
