Which would you buy - money no object - D800 or 600?

I am upgrading from a D7000 and I am looking for the biggest low light improvement I can get.

Money is not really a consideration which pushes me towards the D800. Balancing this are the issues I hear with how difficult it is to get good pictures from the D800 due to the high pixel count. Some users complain they get far fewer usable images.

I have good glass, I don't shoot sports, I love shooting night images - should I be worried about not being able to handle the D800 and get the (presumably) more forgiving D600?

Some of my favourite activities, night shoots and dark museums:
