Less than a year old, Joy has already developed a loyal following, perhaps because it’s a dance club that makes sure it’s all about the music. The doormen keep the attitude under control and welcome a crowd of Chelsea boys, East Village hipsters, F.I.T. students, and anyone else looking to get a groove on. Inside, the main room is an Austin Powers fantasy in white Formica bathed in blue lights, with a small dance floor that quickly fills to capacity. The VIP lounge is a more intimate retreat in red with its own DJ. Before you begin your boogie night, call ahead and check to make sure that entrance isn’t limited to “guest list only,” as is often the case.
