City: New York
Address: 419 West 13th St.
Stylish, but not pretentious, hidden, yet consistently packed, this apartment-inspired 13th street spot was one where any visitor could easily feel, well, at home. The locale's good vibes were palpable to anyone who pushed open the building's unmarked door. From there, they could plop themselves down on any of the inviting furniture upstairs for a drink before descending the stairs to catch eclectic crowds getting down to hip-hop, funk, and world classics courtesy of Rich Medina, Jazzy Jeff, and many others. Though APT has sadly closed its doors, it'll always be remembered as the ultimate Meatpacking District club for people who hate the Meatpacking District. R.I.P. APT.
