Best New House Night

In the House Fridays at Haze

Haze Nightclub was designed with the idea that DJs are the new rock stars. The 25,000-square-foot venue is composed of interactive projection screens, a 70-foot-high light wall and an impeccable sound system that earned the club our award for Best DJ Booth last year. Haze put that booth to good use when it launched its weekly event, In the House Fridays, over Labor Day Weekend. Paul van Dyk kicked off the inaugural party and, since then, house music’s heavy-hitters such as Congorock, Laidback Luke and Porter Robinson have graced the tables. Resident DJ Stellar leads the weekly fete, which gets crazy when In The House tees, light sticks and glasses are hurled into the crowd. Haze’s spacious dance floor affords plenty of room for the bottles-and-models crowd, eager house-heads and fist-pumping tourists to get up close to whichever maestro is holding court.
