PAPER Magazine hosted its 7th Annual Nightlife Awards last night at Hiro Ballroom with an intimate performance by R&B legend Mary J. Blige. It was a star-studded party with all of New York’s most well-known night owls and city characters, including presenters Estelle, Andrew WK, Patricia Field, and Wendy Williams as the unforgettable MC. And the night’s big winner was Westway, which the mag proclaimed Best New Club. Other wins include: Bedlam for Best New Bar/Lounge and Miss Lily's for Best Restaurant with a Nightlife Scene. Check out the nominees, winners, party pics. [PAPER Magazine]
