Wiggle Room is wiggling its way into the East Village. The gathering spot, at 9 Avenue A, is located in the former Drexler’s space.  Visitors will find two floors designed for dancing, drinking and good vibes. Let loose downstairs at the dedicated dance floor with a weekly rotation of noteworthy and up-and-coming DJs with a focus on funk, disco, and soul. Upstairs, the energy of the dance floor is softened for conversation and cocktails.

Beverage Director Will Krepop (formerly of Cote) is offering a rotating selection of on-tap cocktails include options like the Six On The Richter Scale with Grey Goose Vodka, strawberry, lemongrass, lime leaf and watermelon; and the Alligator With Hair Curlers with Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur, cold brew, Ketel One Vodka, Copalli Cacao Rum and toasted coconut.

Made-to-order signature drinks include the Hot Lava with blanco tequila, ayuk pasilla, pineapple, toasted sesame and hot honey; Wiggle Room Martini with Nordes Gin, Ketel One Vodka, Blanco Vermouth and cherry blossom; Tennis Club Colada with Macchu Pisco, Midori, green chartreuse, arrack, falernum, honey dew, lime and coconut; and the Slam Dunk Disco with Ilegal Mezcal, El Tesoro Reposado Tequila, white miso, banana and apricot.

The modern space is highlighted by soft shapes and fluid lines, while a muted color palette of forest greens, neutrals and grays promote a laid-back experience. Tom Dixon ‘melting’ light fixtures and playful, artfully-placed neons create a warm glow. Venetian walls, geometric artworks from Greece, and minimalist sculptures made in Amsterdam add to the subtle vibe.

Wiggle Room is open Thursday - Saturday from 7pm - late and is also available for booking private events. For more information, visit
