Does clubbing in the boutique-crammed Meatpacking district sound like a bougie nightmare? We hear ya. But don’t write off dance-music deity François K’s weekly Deep Space shindig at Cielo, which started more than a decade ago as a dub night and now covers all genres of underground dance music. The only thing it skips is a strict dress code. (Cielo’s, by the way is “an open mind.” Cute.) Bonus: While it’s a staple for househeads, the futuristic, fun vibes won’t intimidate less-frequent clubbers who just want to have a solid Sunday night out.

The best party in NYC, without a doubt. Francois K.'s mixes are the stuff of legend. I've never heard a dj flow in such a genius way between genres. I guess that's why he's been credited as being the best resident dj in the country. He gets the best sound out of Cielo's jaw dropping Funkion One sound system (still the best sound system in NYC). The guests are incredible too. I often discover dj's there waaay before they hit much bigger levels of popularity. All the guests play really eclectic Deep Space sets which makes it all the more compelling and creative. I love the crowd too. It's such a great mix of real dancers, warm locals, costume-culture folks, pan-sexual everyones, and plenty of international music heads. We love getting there early, when there is time to really stretch out on the dance floor. I always feel like I'm with family when I go. Truly a special vibe every week! This is such a gift.
