MIDTOWN — This nightclub is taking things into another dimension.
Midtown's newest multi-level nightclub is taking dance parties to the next level, projecting 3D videos and images onto the venue's walls and equipping revelers with 3D glasses.
Tokya — a 200-person club on East 58th Street at Madison Avenue across the street from the nightclub Lavo — is scheduled to celebrate its grand opening Saturday night with sets by English DJing duo the EC Twins.
"They can make the whole thing look like water flowing with fish, or have lights showing — whatever you want," explained club spokeswoman Marisa Hebert, of the space's 3D effects. "It's not just a regular projector, where they have, say, a flier or a picture they post on the wall. And if something's in the way, it's distorted. They can pinpoint exactly where they want it and fit it perfectly."
The club, co-owned by Baked by Melissa co-founder Danny Omari, as well as the owners of New York City nightspots Upstairs, Cafe Bari, XO Lounge and Touch, started hosting private events earlier this month, including a star-studded 27th birthday party for Drake last week.
Located in a 6,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by The Web, Tokya boasts a Japanese theme, with a front door carved with Japanese characters and tables covered in cherry blossoms.
Tokya will be open Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. Reservations are recommended.
