Manhattan – Washington Heights
4488 Broadway at 192nd St
You’ll hear the thumping music—from reggaetón to salsa to hip-hop—blasting out of this Upper Manhattan club-lounge from the street before you head inside. Arka Lounge is one of the loudest, most hopping nightspots in Washington Heights, and they’d like all prospective partiers to know just that. Every night marks a different event, from Sunday Nights with DJ Smalls (spinning Latin and Spanish rock) to Belly Thursdays, where belly-ringed patrons show off their moves.
