XES has been known for its no attitude, sexy bartenders and generous drinks with great music, stage entertainment and one of the best patios in NYC, open until 11 p.m. weeknights and until midnight on weekends. XES is in Chelsea @ 157 West 24th Street (next to 7th Avenue) and is open 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesdays to Sundays and 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, with no cover all week.
XES happy hours are:

starring Nomi Sass and Chelsea Piers. Showtime is 10:30 p.m. with DJ Jay Brancato. #gypsies is a whirlwind evening featuring two (maybe a third) high-kicking chorus girls, giving you their favorite diva moments.
“The Paige Turner Show” starring Paige Turner. Showtime 10:30 p.m. with DJ Jay Brancato. Come see Showbiz Spitfire Paige Turner, full of laughs and comedy including singing, dancing, games and prizes. Tuesdays is usually raining, but that never stops the crowd in XES.

“Humpday Karaoke” hosted by Nick Park. Starts at 9 p.m. with DJ Jay Brancato.
“Top Pop” starring Kelly King and DJ Calvin. Showtime at 10:30 p.m. DJ Calvin spins the most fun pop mixes you’ll hear anywhere. Then Kelly takes the stage with her 5 1/2 octave vocal chops, a voice that you can’t forget, singing her favorites and taking your requests. If you have never seen Kelly on the stage, I highly suggest this show!
“BPM” with DJ Jay Brancato. Only XES can start the weekend with the heaviest dance beats and laser lights @ BPM starting at 9 p.m.
“Strobe” with DJ Calvin. Get ready for a night of sexy shirtless boys, a night of lights, videos and the best in music with DJ Calvin. Then at 12 to 1 a.m. they have a midnight happy hour where you will receive a drink ticket that can be redeemed before they close.
“Sing Out Sister Karaoke”
hosted by Frostie Flakes and DJ Brian Kalinowski. Sunday starts with their weekend happy hour from 4-9 p.m. followed by karaoke at 10 p.m. with a 20,000 song selection and NO cover.
