You may stop and wonder where you are when you see the red ropes outside Vudu, an ex-Soho lounge by nightclub icon Michael Bergos that has reemerged in unlikely Upper East Side digs. Beyond the bouncers, red carpet, velvet ropes and the larger life-like metallic doors is a rare Uptown find. Upfront, the exposed brick and padded leather walls are adjacent to a custom art-deco bar. Inside is an all-natural oak dance floor flanked by posh couches and plush pillows. There are go-go dancers found on both the elevated stage and on top of the bar throughout the night. The eclectic touches include: stylish lambskin banquettes with wavy backs, funky sun-shaped mirrors and even vintage tribal masks scattered stylishly. You won't find any beers on tap, but plenty of bottled brews and an abundance of top-shelf liquors to get the party started. With its downtown facade, high-tech sound system and state-of-the-art lighting system that include strobes and an arena hazer, Vudu Lounge has been an urban party-goers destination for 10 years.
