Home of the biggest sound system on the block, Arka Lounge can be heard long before it’s seen. Once you get through the security frisk at the door, you have three main options. The first is to grab a seat at one of the small tables along the wall, each equipped with a Champagne bucket and a glassful of sippy straws. The other is to brave the elements on the lively dance floor, where by 11:30  on a Friday night the club girls are sharpening their heels to eardrum-snuffing reggaeton and Jamaican dance hall. The third, and least likely option: Talk your way past several bouncers (all of whom look like extras from Clash of the Titans) and into the plush booth seating of the raised VIP area, where you can watch the largely Dominican crowd cavorting below, drink Cristal by the bucket, and admire the giant, curvaceous fish tanks protruding from the opposite wall.
