And the Nominees for the 8th Annual PAPER Nightlife Awards Are...

PAPERMAG


Ladies and gentlemen, it's that time of the year again... PAPER's Nightlife Awards are next Wednesday, October 10th! And you, dear readers, have a say in what goes down: As part of the People's Choice segment, you can do your part and vote for everything from Best Night at a New York Museum to Best Megaclub in the U.S.A., among other categories. Votes will be accepted until next Tuesday, October 9th. As for the rest of the awards, we're concentrating on the new in New York nightlife -- so if your longtime favorite hotspot isn't listed, don't fret! We know it's great (and most likely we've nominated it in years past). Winners for both People's Choice and PAPER-chosen categories will be named at the awards ceremony. And without further ado, we give you this year's nominees:
