We have a certain fascination with '90s club kids. Many think the scene disbanded with the demise of Michael Alig, but there is a current club kid scene thriving thanks to nightlife figures like our friend Susanne Bartsch. We wanted to see some of the present-day characters, so we asked Rify Royalty—the fabulous host of our weekly Drag Race screening and Miss Girl party at The Standard, East Village—to take us out to one of his club kid party haunts, Magic by Frankie Sharp at Magic Hour Rooftop. Photographer Mateus Porto gives us a glimpse, paired with quotes from Rify.
