Best nightclub in Philadelphia!

Philly is about to get its own “premier nightclub” that will entertain 1,000 guests a night in a space “designed to be a hybrid between upscale nightclub venues of New York City and Los Angeles fused with international influences.” NOTO (“Not Of The Ordinary”) will open this fall at 1209 Vine Street. Founders James De Berardine, a Lafayette College graduate, and his mother Micheline, are partnering with big names in the small pond that is the Philly club scene: Ryan Dorsey (founder of Recess Lounge and former general manager of after-hours bar and club, Zee Bar), Zach Seidman (formerly of the Fillmore Philadelphia, Atlantic City’s HQ Beach Club, HQ Nightclub, and Dusk), and Jeff Bowell (formerly of STARR Restaurants and part of the successful Las Vegas and Atlantic City openings of mur.mur, LAX Nightclub, Savile Row, HQ Nightclub and HQ Beach Club) — to make the 15,000 square foot club a success.
