Okay, here’s the right way to go to Soirée: Recruit a friend with a few hundred to spare, have him (or her) buy a bottle to secure a table, and then waltz into Soirée with the ease of a B-list celebrity. Here’s the wrong way to go to Soirée: Any way other than the right way—unless you’re into waiting on a massive line and being degraded by a British bouncer with a very official-looking walkie-talkie. If and when you’re inside the sizeable club, there are various rooms to wander, and a large dance floor towards the rear on which girls in tube-tops ("Oh my God, you went to Michigan, too?!") and guys with spiked hair grind to mainstream hip-hop and rock. If you don’t want to deal with elbowing your way to the long oak-glazed bar in the front room, there are cocktail waitresses to take your drink order and bottle service available in the back Pink & White Room. If you do manage to get in, just let loose, dance, and ignore the hype.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
