Exclusive PICS: DJ Michael Magnan's Birthday Bash At Great New NYC Club, SANTO'S PARTY HOUSE

The Event: New York DJ and designer Michael Magnan’s birthday bash.

The Place: The new downtown club Santo’s Party House, where Michael and his musical partner Telfar serve as resident DJs for the weekly dance party, Monday School.

The Crowd: Gay and straight fashion-conscious club-goers who love getting down to modern house music.  Well, all right!

Tobell Von Cartier performed a set of her electro dance-songs, including her catchy hit, “A Current Affair.”

She was accompanied by her very limber glow-in-the-dark dancers.

No, Gio, the lead singer of Black Peter, isn’t auditioning for a “Got Milk?” commercial.  He just got sloppy biting into one of the birthday cupcakes.

Monday School is held in Santo's spacious basement, but we were also graciously given a tour of the main floor (which is still under construction) by one of the club’s driving forces, DJ Spencer Sweeney

The upstairs is fab, with soaring ceilings and a super-duper stage, which Spencer said will include early-night theatrical productions put together by performer Kembra Pfahler.

 We can hardly wait!  Happy Birthday, Michael!
