Nestled away within the beauty of Tao Downtown’s restaurant is a secret treasure, the “in the know” oasis called Tao Downtown Nightclub. Separate from the restaurant, the 2500 sq foot drinks-only lounge has kept a low-key profile attracting VIPS and celebrities for late night/wee-hour cocktails, music and dancing.
A lot of people aren’t even aware that there’s a nightclub below, as it is tucked away in the corner of the huge Tao complex, away from the dining area. The club is placed one stair down and where it is so intimate and dark, it feels like a speak-easy. Tao Downtown Nightclub is one of the Meatpacking hotspots these days for those in the know, and it can be challenging to get in on weekends.

Welcome to 1Oak. After moving passed a coat-check anteroom, patrons find themselves in an open room with a roof of raw oak slats and a zigzagging black-and-white floor.

Past that area is an outdoor smoking lounge somewhat enclosed by mirrored walls.
