The Good News? You Got Past the Velvet Rope. The Bad News? That Bottle of Champagne Costs Nearly $500. From Manhattan to Miami to L.A., Here Are the Hottest Celeb Nightspots in the Country. Give Our Regards to Justin, and Pass the Bubbly
This Chelsea club—featuring a suede-covered VIP room—has been bustling since May 2002, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Justin Timberlake, Cameron Diaz, Jamie Lynn Discala and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac ($150 a shot, $3,000 a bottle), $12 Suede Martinis and $450 bottles of Cristal.
The Velvet Rope
Suede doorman Wass Stevens recommends "style and attitude" but warns, "don't tell me how many people you know."
As the VIP section of South Beach's Opium Garden, the Moroccan-themed Prive (the partial open-air design allows for partying under the stars) has been heating up Miami for 14 months. The most popular night: Thursday's ironically named Betty Ford party.
Paris Hilton, P. Diddy, Kid Rock, Anna Kournikova and Tara Reid (who celebrated her birthday there in November). The club also features celebrity guest hosts, which have included Chris Rock, Shannen Doherty and Daisy Fuentes.
Unlike the New York and L.A. hot spots, most celebs opt to keep the Cristal on ice at Prive, preferring to imbibe $325 bottles of Ciroc vodka.
The Velvet Rope
Miami clubgoers—especially those who are tall, attractive and sport funky attire—can pony up $20 to enter Opium Garden, but security guards prevent them from reaching Prive.
A Hollywood hot spot since July (especially on Wednesdays), the club boasts VIP booths on a raised platform.
David Spade, George Clooney, Britney Spears, Nicolas Cage and Jennifer Lopez (who threw Ben Affleck's birthday party there).
Ketel One vodka and Red Bull ($11) and Cristal champagne ($480 a bottle).
The Velvet Rope
"You have to know somebody to get in," says co-owner Shereen Arazm. "Wed rather have 200 A-listers than 400 B-listers."
