This type is exorbitantly wealthy, beyond the experience or imagination of most of us mere mortals. 

When you see this guy, he will most likely be surrounded by his huge security detail, a few friends, and some pretty ladies that have flocked to his table to help him consume the excessive amounts of Cristal he just purchased. 

You are likely to notice him when 10 bottles of Cristal, sparklers ablaze, make their way to his table. 

This nightlife character really likes top notch bottle service clubs.

Where you can find them:

Avenue, Provocateur or Lavo VIP Room

The Aspiring Fashion Model

Dressed perhaps slightly less fashionably and with less swagger, she is usually tucked away in a booth with her friends who are also aspiring models.

Swanky bankers are an important element in the New York Nightlife scene, as they provide the ‘stimulus package’ that allows many clubs to cover their expenses.

Like the successful fashion model, the fashion forward hipster is also a prized asset at most of the top places in New York.

It is widely believed that this type posses a heightened sense of ‘what is cool’ in the city, so their presence acts as a coveted endorsement for any space which they choose to bless with their presence. 

Be they man or woman, they are always thin and effortlessly striking in appearance.

The Sophisticated Socializer

A bit more mature, and perhaps a bit mysterious, this type appears to be quite successful and is often found using his considerable charm to entertain several attractive female accomplices.

This type does not have to disgrace himself by attempting to ‘pick-up’ a girl when he is out, as women are already an effortless part of his lifestyle. 

Where you can find him: Provocateur Cafe, Electric Room, No. 8, Rosebar,Boom Boom Room)
