Fitting nicely into the '80s revival, Float is done up in cool-toned lighting, sharp angles and opaque plastic walls. American Psycho's Patrick Bateman would have dug the metallic-looking, spare aesthetic, not to mention the steep cover charge ($25) that inevitably draws a long, admiring line outside. The modest-sized dance floor is flanked by upholstered benches, champagne buckets and a bar; down the hallway, another bar provides a space for those less possessed of rhythm to check each other out. With decent house music and an excellent sound system, it's easy to lose yourself dancing the night away in the blue glow.


Float's two upstairs floors are VIP only, so don't expect to bump up against a sweaty, dancing celebrity.
