Throw a slamming party

Downtown New York favorite Mandy Coon lists her essential ingredients for the perfect after-show party.

Downtown New York favorite Mandy Coon lists her essential ingredients for the perfect after-show party.

Good drinks: “Alcohol definitely helps,” says Coon, who prefers red wine.

A chill vibe
: “It has to be an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable and the lighting has to be low,” she says. “You can’t dance in a bright room.”

Cool peeps
: “Some people are more fun than others,” says Coon. “Sometimes when people are just standing around, others who want to dance don’t because they are intimidated.”

A good ratio of girls to guys
: “It keeps people interested. If girls walk into a room and see all girls, they’ll get bored and leave. And vice versa.”

The right music
: “Music is probably the biggest part,” says Coon. She personally goes for the synth-heavy, electro-pop stuff. “It’s about not taking yourself too seriously and just having fun.”
