As the year 2012 comes to an end Bright Lights Business has released a list of the top-five new clubs, bars and lounges.

BLB issued the list of top new nightlife establishments this week as many in the industry take a look back at the past year and all the changes and major events that have shaped the industry and provided the basis for many new establishments to open their doors in 2012.

New Yorkers have many options when it comes to having a drink out on the town but 2012 offered up a lot of new options, varying from the use of liquid nitrogen, old-style charm and bars with a view. Many newcomers are also offering up new flavors of mixed drinks, giving creative freedom to those behind the bar.

Bright Lights Business offered it's take on the top-five newcomers of 2012, each making the list based on a unique feature showcased at the club or bar. One of the company's favorites is Booker and Dax, which has become a hangout for those in the food industry as Dave Arnold continues to create and surprise with unbelievable concoctions. Finale and Bow, opened late in the year, is another top pick as it quickly became a destination spot for many New Yorkers as well as a myriad of celebrities, all enjoying EMM Group's latest success story.

Co-owned by Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, EMM Group restaurants and nightlife venues tend to come out of the gate running and often proving successful from the start, even when major storms such as Hurricane Sandy delay openings. Finale was slated to open Halloween night with Heidi Klum's annual costume party, but was delayed until mid-November due to power outages and flooding that resulted from Sandy. Klum was able to finally have her party in December.

While many of the new openings this year were quieter, more laid back options like Finale and it's downstairs sibling Bow have proven that NYC can always use another nightclub. Those looking for one of the quieter options will be pleased with the many options and the variety of atmospheres offered by each.
