Cielo strips the nightclub experience down to its basic elements: music and dancing. This is not to say that there's no alcohol or difficult door; as you can still find both a full bar and a long line at Cielo. What you won't see are any exclusive V.I.P. areas, much sitting room, or a lot of glitzy decor. In fact, the space is downright minimalistic, with just a bar, a couple of couches, and a dance floor. Still, Cielo does more with what they have than most other clubs do with a whole lot more. The walls are bare, save for bars of light that give the edges of the club a glow like in a furnace, while the central recessed dance floor is lit in a cool, dark blue. Then there is the phenomenal sound system which no one, no matter how big an audio nerd, could find fault with. There's no smoking inside, but smokers don't need to fear having to deal with the door again in order to get their fix - the club has a smoking patio. A music-lover's club, Cielo is only for those who want to dance the night away in style, no conversation needed.

  Had a random night at Cielo and it was an awesome time. I don't know if ive ever seen such unabated dancing in NYC nightlife. Everybody was grooving, nobody posturing or trying to look cool. Great time. A great resource to find good options for nyc nightlife is . It tells you about great spots nearby and gives you a snapshot of the scene right now so you can make a quick decision about where to go next....   Read More
