New York’s hottest club is Aquaman. This place has it all: knights riding sharks,water-powered plasma cannons, underwater politics and intrigue, high-tech pirates, dinosaurs, Willem Dafoe with a man-bun, a kaiju breaking through lava, skydiving into a desert, bad red wigs, and an octopus playing the drums.
