Is there anything worse than getting all dressed up for a night on the town only to find yourself surrounded by douchebags with Jersey accents? (Sorry not sorry, B&T.) Well, the bad news is that there are douchebags at every late night haunt, so long as they can afford bottle service. The good news, however, is that you can try to avoid them in a crowd of actual cool kids at some of the best clubs and lounges in the city. Step 1: Read this list. Step 2: Go out on a weeknight. Step 3: Actually manage to get in.
