7. Max’s Kansas City 213 Park Avenue South
Located next to two of Andy Warhol’s later Factory spots, Max’s Kansas City was one of Warhol’s most frequented places. The nightclub, which had a couple locations, was also a favorite to several artists and musicians such as David Bowie, Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe. Warhol and his entourage would often be spotted in the back room of the club, while The Velvet Underground, a band in which he managed, would play. Although now a fast food cafe called Fraiche Maxx, the space holds history in being one of most notable places in the New York creative scene.
