If this film doesn’t make you want to go out and paint the town red, you are officially BORING. BlackBook intern Caroline Seghers pulls back the curtain and reveals what exactly the kids are up to these days. Exposing the debauchery in these salacious boîtes de nuits is no easy task, but this is guerrilla filmmaking at it’s most fabulous. Mostly filmed over the past two months, Seghers features nightlife partygoers and party-throwers (such as Terry Casey, Michael de Guzman, DJ Vikas, and host Lindsay Lowe) and hops around to hopping venues like Hotel Chantelle, Le Souk, Webster Hall, Top of the Standard, and even a secret afterhours spot.
“Boom Boom Room was not pleased with me filming inside. John Mayer was at the table next to me and apparently he’s a VIP guest, or whatever. Don’t worry John Mayer, you didn’t make the cut,” says Seghers, sassy-like. “The important thing is that it’s undeniably New York City — the people, the music, the atmosphere, the performances; and for a lot of people, this is just a typical night!” Warning: kinda NSFW.
