The hippest and trendiest clubs and watering holes in New York sprout up today, and two weeks later they disappear. There are, however, a couple of districts in the city you can rely on to have a good time, with a large selection of clubs, pubs and bars.

Try Chelsea for a taste of the Gay and Lesbian scene, Greenwich Village (Bleecker Street in particular) has a great stretch of bars and clubs that are popular with college students in the city, and SoHo for great lounges and chill DJ’s.

Bear in mind, this is an extremely large city and on almost every corner you’re bound to find a local dive bar selling local brews (like Brooklyn Lager) and playing ZZ Top on the juke box and these places can be just as much fun as the spot where Jay-Z hangs out (His own club ‘44’), depending on your attitude!

Don’t forget about the outstanding live music venues all over the Five Burroughs, including the Beacon Theater on the Upper West Side, where Bob Dylan, Dave Chappelle and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant have all performed recently.
