If you remember the Meatpacking District a decade or so ago, sometimes you have to rub your eyes a few times in disbelief of what appears to be nearly paved roads of gold and rainbows everywhere. It's definitely not a traditional meatpacking district anymore. Down the yellow brick road, i.e. 13th Street is the Aer Lounge and Restaurant, a fairly new addition to the transformed hip and happening Meatpacking District that offers visitors a modern, sleek, and fun oasis in the city. Plush ottomans and banquettes, flowing beaded metallic curtains, and a hot DJ add to the ambiance that makes a trip to Aer an essential 'must do' to let loose. The only drawback is that there isn't really space for dancing, unless you don't mind standing in front of your ottoman and dancing in front of the drink of the person sitting next to you. That might not be the best in terms of etiquette or the average New Yorker's desire for personal space.
If only they could have incorporated a designated dance area, even if it was small. Seems like they wanted to stay away from the disco stereotype but as the need evolves for this fairly large space, the call for a wild dance floor seems to be needed.
