Dubbed “Best DJ Night” at Paper Magazine’s 4th Annual Nightlife Awards, OPEN has earned the reputation for being the most important Friday night in the Five Boroughs for the masses to get down. From movie stars to breakdancers to workplace warriors of every collar, the crowd is a beautiful representation of New York City’s soul, and the music is engineered accordingly. TIP (A Tribe Called Quest), RICH MEDINA and DJ GRAVY, who has taken over the downstairs level, are known for their selection of the choicest hip-hop cuts mixed with the forgotten classics of soul, reggae, funk disco and jazz. Hosted by Va$htie, the party features special guest DJ’s and performers every week.
