How Not to Get Into New York City Nightclubs

Wear Business Casual

What to wear to a nightclub

Business casual may be able to get you ‘into’ a sweet job as a mid-tier corporate stooge- but it definitely won’t get you into an exclusive NYC nightclub. Leave the khakis where they belong – in your grandfather’s closet….Peace, Love Gap!
