Formerly the Ritz (and before that, a historical ballroom), this huge club with six separate lounges is a mainstay on the dance scene. Everyone has an opinion on Webster Hall -- some love it, some hate it. But if you're looking to show someone a slice of classic over-the-top NYC nightlife, you can't go wrong. The vintage theater look, with its winding staircases and multiple rooms, is rivaled only by Avalon for the so-old-it's-new-again feel, and the college age crowd covers all the bases, not just the "pretty people." Webster Hall also hosts loads of themed nights and rock shows.
Review of Webster Hall

I live right in front of the Webster Hall, and for a music fan like me it's really a plus. Since I arrived here some of my favourite bands have played at Webster Hall. I just get down the stairs, cross the streets, and get in. Webster Hall is a historic place that has apparently going on for years and years as a club. If you want to dance some amazing '80s tunes Saturday is your night, while Thursday is girls night out... I've never been there though to dance. I've only seen it as a live venue. The prices are reasonable, the acoustic of the hall is great, and the decoration is just amazing. There is a VIP area upstairs that is quite a bummer not to have access to as the sight from there must be absolutely fantastic.
