Bossa Nova Civic Club is a strange anomaly in the New York nightlife world. For one, it's a legitimate venue with the bonafides of an underground warehouse party. Then there's the fact that, at two years old, Bossa Nova is just as cool as the day it opened (perhaps moreso, considering the caliber of acts they've been booking). Parties may come and go, venues open and close, but so far Bossa Nova Civic Club remains the best place to dance for serious fans of electronic music. — Nathan Reese
