Sapphire Lounge

Sapphire Lounge

Minimally furnished to encourage dancing, Sapphire Lounge clearly doesn't want anyone to just lounge around… why is it called Sapphire Lounge then? We don't know. The DJs regularly keep the dance floor filled with people of every shape and size shaking their stuff to R&B, '70s funk and disco, and it's not uncommon to see breakdancers showing off at various intervals. The fact that the cover here is five bucks—tops--makes it one of our favorite little haunts for late night dancing.

Sapphire Lounge is the longest running bar/nightclub on the Lower East Side of the modern era. Full bar, DJ and dance floor. Open 7 days a week until 4am.
