What do you get when you combine Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, and the West Village into one? A high-energy, high-fashion mecca of nightlife, newly dubbed the Lower West Side (by your editors here at R29). You know we're always on top of what's hot when it comes to all things eating, drinking, and dancing, and the "LWS" is no exception. And, we're not just talking one-hit wonders that will be in for a sec and deserted the next. No, this 'hood has serious staying power, with some of the best restos and bars in the city that aren't about to become B&T territory.In the spirit of giving, we're sharing our favorite go-tos with you, from haute hotel dance parties to craft cocktails, plus the tastiest tapas and pizza. Of course, we've styled an outfit for each after-dark locale too, so you'll never have to endure that "There's nothing in my closet!" panic again. Keep our weekend (or weekday — who says you can't have fun on a school night?) cheat sheet in your back pocket, and you'll never be bored — or without sartorial inspiration — again. Now, shall we try and make #LWS happen on Twitter?
