MINI Cooper and Urban Daddy partnered to roll out MINI Night Out in New York on Wednesday evening and Thursday evening into the early hours of Friday morning. Here is how it works: Guests reserve a ride in the brand new MINI Paceman and a chauffeur will take them on a nightlife adventure to some of the hottest spots in that city. Examiner.com had the pleasure of experiencing this fun New York City adventure. The Paceman is artistically proportioned and has an athletic appeal. The best part is how customizable the Paceman is, so you can create the coupe for you. The Paceman is available in eight body finishes; two roof colors and six light alloy wheels in four colors. We spent our evening being taken through the streets of downtown Manhattan to our destinations selected by UrbanDaddy in this exciting ride and enjoyed our VIP experience.
Destination number one was two experiences in one. After taking a picture in front of the MINI and UrbanDaddy backdrop, a Co-Pilot escorted us to the party to a table where we snacked on champagne and oysters. Ken and Cook is where our night began and after enjoying the French like vibe, we quickly moved downstairs to Lil Charlies. Lil Charlies gave a different vibe with a lounge feel and good music playing. Drinks and appetizers were enjoyed below as well. The night was still young and more surprises awaited us at the next location. Our MINI was booked and we were off! As the Pilot drove us to the next location, the Co-Pilot played our favorite beats and took pictures while showing off the highlights of the MINI Paceman. One of our favorites was the interior lighting that changed colors! We were in a Calvin Harris/purple mood. The party continued in the Paceman until we arrived at the next spot.
Destination number two was none other than PHD a rooftop lounge/club at the top of the Dream Hotel in Meatpacking. After another photo opportunity, we were escorted to the back of the hotel, up the fully mirrored elevators and into PHD. With a DJ playing a mix of the hottest beats and drinks flowing at the bar and of course tables, this was sure to be a good time. We enjoyed cocktails while lounging on the balcony and the best part was the amazing view. Looking west to the Hudson and north at midtown Manhattan, the view was a highlight of the evening. After a few drinks and a little dancing on the roof it was time to roll out in the MINI to the next location.
Our final destination of the evening was Le Baron. This French nightclub located in Chinatown was full of surprises. It had the feeling is of a 1970's Vietnam house party and was decorated, accordingly. From the exotic dancer wallpaper to the Oriental lighting in the hallway to what was ahead in the next room. We enjoyed the disco ball and black bar on the first level, leather above and a basement below and when you go don’t forget to take a peek behind the secret doors all around you. Le Baron was surely an exciting close to our adventure. MINI and UrbanDaddy pulled out all the stops for MINI Night Out and the Paceman took everyone on an exclusive nightlife adventure!
