This two-story, 6,000-square-foot club comes with a heavy-handed, if well-intentioned, gimmick: Greenhouse is New York’s first ecofriendly nightclub. The walls are sustainable bamboo, the light bulbs LED, the staff wears ecofriendly garb designed by Bono’s wife and shills drinks made with organic 360 vodka, and pretty much everything is recycled. It all adds up to a LEED registration, the first step to getting the official stamp of approval from the U.S. Green Building Council. Greenhouse also impresses with a swanky interior; ceilings are attractively adorned with plant leaves, and seating’s provided by plush black leather couches.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
