Best of New York Family 2003

Best Dance Club

  • Family Disco Jack Rose

    771 Eighth Avenue, 212-586-7425;

    Every Sunday night, the Family Disco spins hits from the seventies through today and lets kids rock out with their parents. Located upstairs at the Jack Rose restaurant in midtown, the disco, open from 5:30 to 7 p.m. each week, has attracted all sorts of latter-day John Travoltas since it opened in October, including one 8-year-old boy who regularly clears the floor with his moves. A dance instructor is available to help shy kids—and parents—get into the groove. Entry is $12 per person; a second child is free, as are infants.
