What the Float takes a unique concept to clubbing, providing outlets for dancing with headphones on. In just one night you can travel around a neighborhood and discover places you never knew, and best of all, skip the lines.
Who To Take: Someone looking for a unique experience or the person who likes to dance and control the playlist
After dinner one night downtown at Harold’s Meat + Three, we stumbled upon an interesting scene happening inside the Argo Hotel. There was a room full of people, all wearing glowing headphones, dancing away—yet there was no sound. We had to find out what the heck was going on!
BE ESCORTED AROUND NYC TO DANCE
Here’s what we found out. What the Float is a traveling dance event that meanders from place to place in different neighborhoods, providing places to dance and mingle. The most you’ll know before heading out is which neighborhood you will be dancing in. Surprises are in store!
TUNE INTO WHAT YOU LIKE
Once on the dance floor, you will be outfitted with a set of headphones. These headphones are tuned into what the 4 DJs are playing, and you can change channels at will. Doing so also changes the color emanating from your headphones, so you can scan the room and see who likes what. It’s fun to watch people totally mesmerized, moving to the different grooves, in a totally quiet room . Some of those dance moves may inspire you to tune into their channel. Events last about three hours. Advance tickets, $25. or $30 near the time of the event. See the latest upcoming events on the website whatthefloat.com
