Hudson Hotel library, 356 W. 58th St., nr. Ninth Ave.; 212-554-6000
Bleach blonde and black leather are the dominant colors at Ladyland, which transforms the sedate Hudson Hotel library into a louche after-party every Thursday night. Guy Furrow, a.k.a. Miss Guy, starts the proceedings at 11 p.m., spinning a mix of classic punk and glam (Ramones, Blondie, Ozzy), while Kelle Calco takes over by two and leans more toward soul and blues rock (Stevie Nicks, Creedence, Stones). It’s an open-door policy, with no cover charge or dress code, though you’ll probably want to go heavy on the studs.
