Hiro Ballroom at the Maritime Hotel - CLOSED
New York, NY 10030
- Sun, Thu-Sat 10pm-4am
Village Voice's Description
The Maritime Hotel's Japanese-styled Hiro Ballroom resembles the setting of a legendary Kill Bill fight scene, in which Uma Thurman defeats 88 Yakuza warriors in a Tokyo dojo. This place is even more glamorous, as paper lanterns sway and illuminate the vaulted ceiling up above, but the feudal mystique remains. Counter-intuitively, Korean-American Party Night is every Friday. On Saturday, however, a generalized DJ affair is enjoyed by dressy Meatpacking District spillover, while Sunday hosts a lavish gay club night. DJs and the occasional rock stars entertain from the wooden-column-protected stage at the room's center, though a guest appearance by sumo wrestlers wouldn't be out of place.
Tips from foursquare
Sunday night this is the place to be! The resident DJ Honey Dijon is AMAZING! Drinks can be a bit pricey, but the incredibly HOT crowd and FUN vibe make up for it.
Catch a concert at Hiro Ballroom. Grab a booth upstairs for comfort, or stake out a spot on the staircase for best view.
Friday nights are Asian nights

Whether we’re itching for a dance w/out the sweaty floor scene, or looking for a laidback space to sip our cocktail and gossip the night away, one of the spaces in this venue is bound to work for us.
