Developers in New York City want to open the town's first gay boutique hotel, which will be anchored by a major new dance club in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood on the West Side.
According to the New York Daily News, work and life partners Ian Reiser and Mati Weiderpass of Parkview Developers plan to call their project "the Out N.Y.C."
The couple plans to create a 123-room hotel, which also will have a spa, a restaurant, a cafe and shops, the Daily News reports.
Also included will be a centerpiece: a planned 10,000-square-foot dance club with room for 750 patrons, created with help from gay nightlife impresario John Blair.
The local community board, whose support is needed to go forward, will vote on the project shortly.
