1OAK NYC logo

Description of venue:  The Patrick-McMullan photographed crowd flock to this Chelsea lounge, from power players Richie Akiva and Scott Sartiano—both of Butter—to Jeffrey Jah, mastermind behind Lotus. If you make it past the tough door, you’re almost sure to spot a celeb or two sipping Dom Perignon from one of the few, coveted tables. As one the city’s glittering clubs du jour, 1OAK is stuffed to the gills with models, fashionistas, and bespoke bankers. If you, mere mortal, do make your way into the expansive room beneath the raw, oak-lined ceiling, don’t forget to make your way down to the pimped-out bathrooms—the pitch-black individual stalls feature gold basins and an oversized image of a gold gun on the wall.
