Three floors above the metal detectors and cheesy China Club’s bump-and-grind, you’ll find Jade Terrace’s singles-and-salsa scene. A lively after-work crowd mingles on the red-and-green outdoor terrace, built to vaguely resemble a pagoda that’s smack in the midst of Times Square. The W Hotel, Worldwide Plaza, and brightly lit skyscrapers loom in the background-though green roofing skirts the terrace edge, limiting the view and creating a hemmed-in feel. Inside the adjacent lounge, large red fringe lanterns hang from the ceiling, banquettes line the walls, and Buddha figurines pose in corners. Talented, hip swiveling couples square off on the dance floor to the pulse of generic club music and reasonably authentic Latin, salsa, and merengue. As for the drinks, since the bartender himself recommends “something easy,” take his advice and stick to basics like a vodka tonic. If you were looking for the latest cocktail or swankiest spot, you wouldn’t have come here, anyway.Dress Code
