Nells is a two floor club with the decor of an old gentleman's club. Up-stairs, where live bands play and DJ Medina
there is a bar and a stage as
well as a small dance floor, some sofas and easy chairs, and a restaurant with tables and booths. Downstairs there
are two rooms;
one is a dance floor (larger than up-stairs), a DJ booth, and a small bar.
In the other room there is a seating area with sofas and easy chairs arraigned into three separate areas.
trying different things downstairs such as Tango, and Afro, but things really took off for him when he installed
DJ Elvira downstairs to play Pure Salsa and fill the
dance floor (and pack the house)
with the New York area dance team members, studio dancers and, social dancers. These dancers mix with the
Up-Stairs crowd which is dancing and listening to traditional Cuban Son. This is what makes Nells special the
mixture between ""Old School" and
New York and New Jersey's best young and energetic dancers. Nells is also a great date bar even if you
are not into Salsa. There is a kitchen at Nells that operates until late and the food is good bar food.
