Since this is a killer thread, I'll tack on an answer to this for future viewers.
My Friday night hangout is occasionally:Hudson Bar and Books
(cigar bar) ... with great scotch and seriously interesting people. They play old James Bond movies and serve good cocktails. If you are under 25 you might not like it. But then again...
This is followed by a very short wander over into the rest of the Meatpacking area. If you want to do the NYC glamour nightlife thing.. right now you go to.. Tenjune
. Or the place right across the street from it. The crowd is 21 (or a bit younger with fake id) to 26 mainly. Loud music. Girls in damn short skirts/dresses. On Fri/Saturday you have to play the "bottle service" game, or slip the guy at the door about $100. OR be a group of hot single girls in shorts skirts and you get in free. It's that type of place.
If you want a cool NYC jazz dive experience, find Small's jazz.
In/out at any time - unlike the other places that have set times you have to adhere to.
