Overview: In the few years since The Darby first opened its doors, the supper-club venue has consistently attracted the city's cool crowd. Although the venue draws people in with the critically-acclaimed food from celeb superstar chef Alex Guarnaschelli, it's the amazing live performances that keep people coming back for more.

Insider's Scorecard: Everyone, from Prince to Taylor Swift, have hit the Darby stage at some point or another. Most recently, Charlotte Ronson hosted a private dinner at the restaurant to celebrate her Fall 2013 collection.
