Teenage Nightclub

For teenagers New York City can be a frustrating experience: the nightlife is legendary, but aside from the occasional poetry slam or under-18 show at a rock club, they can't legally enjoy any of it. Over the last few years adult nightclubs around the country have introduced teenager-only nights, giving young people an alternative to the fake ID route to fun. Some clubs in New York have followed suit. On Fridays in Manhattan, Spirit, in Chelsea, has an under-21 night, and Exit in Midtown is 18 and over; Avalon, in the former Limelight space, is 18 and over Thursday through Sunday. But Crush is among the first nightclubs created solely for teenagers.

Story here. For one thing, New York is a great place to be a teenager. Being a teenager, per se, is just a kind of frustrating experience. This also sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. High school kids snorting coke in the bathroom, etc.

Our little town had a dance club for teens (13 and older) for a while. Strange enough it attracted resident sex offenders who, no kidding, paid the DJ to play Nelly's "Hot in Herre" repeatedly.

In college I worked at a bar/nightclub/restaurant in FL, and they figured out that the way to make massive cash on the early nights of the week was to throw Teen Night parties - no alcohol, extremely high covers and, most importantly, from a parents/safety perspective, no one over 18 allowed. Not even parents (who could watch through the giant glass windows surrounding the club area). Still, it didn't stop two randy kids from getting caught having sex on the roof. Yeah, no. I don't know how they got there either. But it happened.

"This also sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. High school kids snorting coke in the bathroom, etc."

High school kids have been snorting coke in Manhattan club bathrooms uninterruptedly since 1979.

If true, this marks a major change from when I was in high school in the late '80s. As a bridge-and-tunnel kids from North Jersey, we'd go to the city specifically because it was one of the few places we COULD get served. For the bigger clubs -- Limelight, Palladium, the Tunnel -- you needed a fake I.D., but even the most incompetently produced Maine or West Virginia (in those days, the easiest states to spoof) could get you in, so long as you were dressed well and accompanied by attractive gals. In the pubs, which were more my scene, you didn't need any of that, and you could sidle up to a Guiness and shot of Jameson's no matter how fresh faced you were.

Posted by: R.J. Lehmann | Jan 16, 2006 12:20:12 AM

Ah yes, the joys of being a North Jersey teenager in the late '80s. Awesome. You should have seen my fake ID - it was bad, but good enough to get into Limelight or Emerald City(was that the name of it? I forget). However, my scene was more Wetlands than anything else - and no ID was generally needed.

any one of you guys who disses crush is just a piece of shit. i mean like ok..i promote there, and your right, its not that good, but what its doing is great. its allowing teens who dont bother paying 60 dollars for a decent fake id (that will probably still get cut)to go out and party. when it first started, it was great, then it went straight downhill. when it bottomed out, there were lots of young people there. its getting better tho. Also, if you get there at eight, and leave at midnight, your probably not going to see anybody worth seeing. if your a teenager, with out a midnight cerfew, stay there a while, it always gets better as the night goes on.
However, the fact that there is a club for teenagers is great. granted its the first of its kind, and could be much better, it IS doing something different.
How about all you people who HATE crush and think its terrible, if your 16 or 17 or 18 years old, all of you guys get together, and all go to crush and make it better. just dont leave at like 9 15 thinking your to cool for it. hang out a while, give it a shot. dont diss it, just make it better
