SLAKE Enters the NYC Nightlife Scene

February 2014 will mark the beginning of a new era in Manhattan Nightlife! From the brain trust of the people behind New York City’s Legendary Webster Hall, WHEG proudly presents its newest adventure: SLAKE.

Reminiscent of a time in New York before corporate banks and frozen yogurt shops littered each block, SLAKE is a sexy and mysterious labyrinth of twisting hallways, staircases, and wide-open dance floors.  The venue boasts 4 unique rooms spread across 3 maze-like levels.  It is capable of hosting an intimate party for 75, a live concert for 500, or a multi-level gathering for 1000.

Once inside, patrons are free to explore the expansive space. They will find an eclectic balance of industrial design, cozy décor, and massive installations from world-renowned artists.  Each room is equipped with state of the art sound and light systems.  At SLAKE, human interaction is of highest importance.  SLAKE is an intimate place of expression, free of judgment, built for those who wish to escape from the mundane and immerse themselves in the sound of the underground.

I don’t know, we’ll see if she’s available. She’s busy. She’s pretty famous; I don’t know if you’ve heard of her. She’s pretty backed up. Hopefully the guy who’s in charge will like her for that part because I’m going to suggest her.”
