This second-floor club in the old Snitch space comes courtesy of promoters David Rodolitz and Adam Elzer. Poker-faced doormen guard a bustling, rectangular room that’s a bit snug for its hard-partying crowd, where the center of attention is a lengthy wooden dance floor whose color-shifting lights bring to mind iPod iconography. Back-lit walls enclose groups tucked in minimal banquettes drenched in honeyed tones of rich tobacco, amber, and aubergine, while boldfaced D.J.'s like Richie Rich and Samantha Ronson operate from a raised booth above the VIP section. The swarms buzz around the frosty hallway of the 22-foot-long bar, eager to order from the brief, well-executed drink list, which updates lounge standards with top-shelf cameos: The Last Kiss gin martini swirls Prosecco and crème de peche, and the Golden House is a Redbull standby that includes tequila, lime, and cassis. The club’s namesake cocktail, the Citrini, is a clubby Amaretto sour that splashes the nutty syrup with vanilla and pear vodka, OJ, lemon, and fizzy ginger ale.
