Raving Raeanne: Best U18 Clubs in NYC & NJ
Being under 18 it is hard to get into certain events to see your favorite artist, especially when it comes to dance music. But luckily, there are clubs in our area that keep the younger generation in mind, allowing kids under 18 to have a fun night out at a nightclub. I found some places in New York and New Jersey that have nights for the underage set.
MoMa is easily one of the most recognized art museum in world, and luckily we have easy access to it being in the tri-state area. But, who would have ever known they do Teen Nights? It’s not exactly a club, but teens and adults get to showcase their creative abilities, whether it be art, music, etc in MoMa PS1 on Long Island City. It costs $5- $10 for an event. It is definitely a must to experience.
Webster Hall is an amazing venue that never disappoints with any party. Whether it be DJs or live acts it is always full of energy. Webster Hall holds teen nights occasionally throughout the year. A popular night is the After Prom party. Webster Hall is one of the oldest and biggest venues in New York. The legendary theatre is definitely one of those places you must go and enjoy first hand!
Pacha NYC is one of the most well known clubs in Manhattan that created Pacha U18, which brings popular DJs and producers to play for 18 and under crowds. With past headliners such as Alesso, Thomas Gold, Laidback Luke, Hardwell & Porter Robinson, just to name a few, it’s hard to be disappointed with big acts like that. The location is West 46th street (down the block from the intrepid). The club opens 3 of their 4 floors and also the VIP mezzanine. It’s so fun to experience a New York City nightclub with famous DJs especially when your underage!
The next event is August 19th with Danny Avila.
Located in Clifton, New Jersey, Bliss is located in a prime location for New Jersey. With teen parties like, School’s Out, Blackout Parties, and Beach Parties, there’s always a new theme. Bliss is a fun spot to enjoy your night out with friends. It’s a nice size club that has a great atmosphere and look. No matter what kind of party it is, you are going to have fun.
The next teen event is August 11th...a hip-house party!
You may recall Karma (in Seaside, NJ) from watching the cast of Jersey Shore go wild, but they also do 18 & under events. During the summer, Karma produces Teen Nights every Wednesday night starting at 8 pm. It’s the perfect way to spend a night down at the shore in one of the most well known nightclubs in New Jersey. Occasionally, there are themes such as glow in the dark, foam parties, and white parties. DJs vary week to week, but you are guaranteed to have a fun time no matter when you go! If you’re by down the shore during the summer Karma is the place to go!
