New York has no shortage of uber-luxurious canine-care facilities but Fetch Club used to contain a doggie disco. That’s right, this nightclub for dogs had “dancing,” and canine wine for thrill-seeking pups. But like many businesses in New York City’s Financial District, Fetch Club was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. In the human world, the last of the downtown hotels re-opened by April but it’s been a struggle to bring back foot traffic and tourism. Fetch Club had to be gutted after the storm and amenities that were hosted in the basement, including the nightclub, have yet to make a full comeback.
We love the description for the Fetch Club Night Club on the website though:
As the day turns into night, we open the Night Club exclusively for the Club’s VIP Members from 7pm to Midnight. The Night Club provides you with evening services to either relax or party into the night. Staff is present 24 hours a day to ensure any needs are met and attended to create a safe comfortable place to relax or dance the night away.
Still available are dog-themed movie screenings and a dog spa.
Here’s a look at the rest of Fetch Club’s areas still operating:
The upstairs play area
To complete the nightclub experience…
This isn’t the only upscale doggie daycare in the city. D Pet Hotels Chelsea, a canine hotel which boasts suites “larger than most New York City apartments” and Ruff Club, a social club for dogs which has an antique bar inside.
