In New York, the hottest parties are a mix of of fashion industry gay dudes, hot model/dancer/actress chicks and the smart hipster straight guys who've figured it out. That Studio 54-like mix is harder to find here for some reason, but not impossible, and this list of sexy, sweaty, electro-fied "mixed company" parties is proof.

The "Bootie" mash-up dance party that goes off every 2nd and 4th Saturday at this SoMa venue gets representatives from every party-people faction in the city (Mission hipster, Marina preps, Castro pretties) and has launched satellite parties in New York and Paris.
This dim, slightly scummy, and super fun Lower Haight dancebox gets good a mix of gay and straight partiers you won't be able to tell apart; try "Suckerpunch" on Monday nights for a party Warhol would've loved--if he was into hip-hop.
