An Arabian Nights fantasy awaits…once you’ve cleared the velvet rope. Inside this sexy downtown haven you’ll find rich tapestries, mosaic tiling, colorful lanterns and a soundtrack of Middle Eastern techno, reinforcing the Casablanca-by-way-of-Soho theme. Sink into a plush sofa or queue up at the bar. Late-night and after-hours revelers keep the place packed through the morning—Sway doesn’t open until 10pm, and the party continues until the last patron drifts out.
