While Pacha NYC is a glistening manifestation of glamour and grandeur on a grand-scale, bricked-out basement den Sullivan Room is the Big Apple's intimate and underground clubbing touchstone. Forget about velvet ropes and bottle service, it's all about the music down here with Saturday promoters Basic bringing over names like Radio Slave, Derrick Carter, Ben Sims, Carl Craig, Jeff Mills and Josh Wink on a weekly basis.
"Unbeatable atmosphere, energy and enthusiasm," beams Tom Middleton. "It feels like a rocking house party with all your best friends. You feel inspired to take the music to places you never usually get a chance to go, and the smiling crowd willingly follow."
