In search of a large club for New Year's Eve in NYC!

My friend, a friend of his, and I are looking for a club to party at in New York. Since his friend is new to the city he's hoping he can go to a large venue, with the price of admission no more than $100 or so.

Any suggestions folks? I know we're very last minute in making plans/booking tickets.

If all else fails, I guess we'll visit a lounge/bar and then make it to a club for the 1am entrance.

What kind of music?

Response by poster: I don't think we really have any preference on music. However, I should mention that the place should have some class, but maybe that's expected of all clubs? I don't know, I'm not a serious clubber.

Capitale is basically *the* party for out of towners on NYE. It's $125 for general admission with open bar (note, though, that at most of these places actually getting through the crowd to access the bar and get a drink can take an hour or more).

Most other places will include tix to the Capitale afterparty with their admission fee.

Looks like the price has gone up to $395/ticket, since it's so close to the event. Regardless, the site I linked before, clubzone, has all of these prix fixe deals for purchase online, you can search for one that meets your needs.

Again, given how hard it usually is to get drinks at these events, it is difficult to actually drink $100 worth of alcohol (and they often have little to no food as well). Basically, I'm recommending your friends do something else for dinner/pre-midnight, and then hit up Capitale after for the club scene.

Something to note: the tickets for NYE events in NYC are often split up regarding when you will show. It's more expensive to go before midnight because the open bar places frequently anticipate that people will leave after midnight and they sometimes include a champagne toast at midnight. So it may make sense to find a cheaper option before midnight and head to a mega club after.
