Located at the critical intersection of West Street and Clarkson Street, just one block north of Houston Street, The Westway takes inspiration from New York City dance clubs of the 1980s and 1990s. Set in a former gentlemen's club, the venue synthesizes old and new in a uniquely playful and light-hearted way.

The Westway is operated by an experienced team of industry veterans. Principal owners Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte also own the popular downtown eateries The Smile and Smile To Go, and operate trendy hot spots the Jane Hotel Ballroom and Jane Hotel Rooftop.
