“Once upon a midnight dreary”, a subterranean nightclub in Meatpacking aptly named The Raven opened its doors. Based off of the famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven nightclub exudes gothic fantasy and sin with its dark velvet and leather decor. Henry Stimler, ex banker, created this edgy nightclub so NYC clubgoers will “nevermore” have to search for a place where they can schmooze in one area, and dance to the changing lineup of international DJs in another. Gently tap at the chamber doors this weekend when the new nightclub will be in full effect.
