ABOUT CIELO

Cielo is a state-of-the-art space in downtown’s ultra chic Meat Packing District that provides sophisticated fans of electronic music with a specialized space, tailored to their tastes. It is a haven for individuals seeking culturally rich nightlife with neither the hassles of large clubs nor the elitism of upscale lounges with too many VIP rooms. Once you are in Cielo, there will be no more ropes, checkpoints, or rules. For more than 12 years, Cielo has stayed true to these initiatives and established itself as a legendary name in New York City’s dance music underground.

Cielo goes back to basics: the best DJs, a strong door, impeccable service, stunning decor and lighting, skillfully designed acoustics and a Funktion One soundsystem that will blow the socks off even the most fastidious audiophile. The sunken dancefloor is surrounded by banquettes decked out in brown and beige suede with a range of intelligent lighting effects to enhance the intimate design; the stylish look is inspired by the timeless 70’s aesthetic.

Conceived in 2003, Cielo is the brainchild of co-owner Nicolas Matar. A DJ for the past 20 years, Nicolas was most notably known for his residency at the infamous Pacha Nightclub in Ibiza. Nicolas played in the funky room or “El Cielo” and credits those years as the inspiration for Cielo and his eventual return to New York. For over a decade, Cielo has remained focused on maintaining high quality service and providing an experience unlike any other. As demonstrated by the unprecedented number of awards and nominations the club currently boasts, Cielo has established itself as an international brand with an edict of cutting-edge electronic music. In addition to its accolades, Cielo has featured more top international DJs than any other club in North America since its opening. DJs such as Luciano, David Guetta and Sven Vath passed through Cielo doors before they were the kingpins they are today.

See you on the dancefloor…
