New York City is North America’s nightlife capital. Whatever you’re into, there’s a party out there for that—you just have to know how to find it. Diversity is what makes the Big Apple beautiful, and good music comes in a wide range of shapes and sizes, from top-shelf nightclubs to outdoor discos and far-flung warehouses. Come in the right season and you might even catch the odd boat party, should you choose to take a loop around the Statue of Liberty. New York’s dance music scene grows wider and more varied with every passing weekend, and by all accounts it may soon rival that of its European cousins.
