Location: 29 West 36th St.

"In 2014, A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip will step behind the turntables and introduce you to good vibes. OK, this isn't exactly a venue (his parties have taken place at a few different spots), but it's starting up again soon at Sankeys. It isn't so much about the place that makes this event worth checking out, but the crowd that "The Abstract" attracts. Party with Busta Rhymes, Nile Rodgers and people who love to party. Oh, and bring a whistle. I love it."
