The line that snakes down the hallway at Encore is legendarily long for a reason: crowd control. As one of (if not the) most stylish and sought-after clubs in the city, XS is clearly doing something right, and quality control is a big part of it. The tight velvet rope ensures the poorly dressed and disheveled don’t get in (take those flip-flops back to Ohio, hobo!), while those prepared for nightlife success achieve nothing less. The result is a club full of eye candy in all shapes, sizes and colors—and good times for all.
