Party Earth Pink Elephant Review

The Scene

Pink Elephant in New York's Greenwich Village is the 3rd incarnation of this swanky international club. Don your finest & grab a model in NYC with Party Earth.

After getting booted from Chelsea back in 2010, sparkler-strewn and models-and-bottles paradise Pink Elephant spent over two years off the NY club scene before returning in 2012 with a smaller, mildly gentler, but still glitzy incarnation.

Hidden on a largely residential stretch of 8th Street, the venue requires its savvy guests to first descend to a waiting area dubbed The Infinity Room – either because the walls are covered in mirrors or because mere mortals will spend that much time trying to get in.

A small bar near a private lounge lets fashion mavens and Euro scenesters grab a pricey cocktail in a hurry, though most proceed down the narrow hallway to the dark and retro-style main room, where a giant circular structure anchored by a glittering disco ball hangs over a dance floor perpetually packed with pretty people and house dancers clad in dental floss.

Raven-black VIP booths are set well back from the throngs to ensure moneyed cliques need not interact with the masses, nor worry about an errant elbow shattering their $10K bottle of Cristal.

DJs tend to be up-and-comers on the local club scene, sticking with house and contemporary dance mash-ups to ensure everyone spends most of the night on their high-heeled feet.

The term "seeing pink elephants" may be a euphemism for drug-induced hallucinations, but the iron-clad door at Pink Elephant ensures the two hundred sexy people who make it inside are very real.

Well…real enough.

Tip from Adriana:

Don’t plan on getting in without your chicest outfit and a couple of fabulously dressed girlfriends as accessories.

  • Crowd

    Successful young businessmen, socialites, chic Euro clubbers, South American expats familiar with Pink’s locations in Mexico and Brazil, and promoters with groups of gorgeous girls in tow, mostly 20s to 30s with a smattering of so-rich-your-age-no-longer-matters.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Different DJs most nights, usually up-and-comers on the New York scene, including Euro imports not yet well-known in the U.S. All tend to stick with house music.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    N/A.

  • Prices

    Drinks $20+, bottle service $400–$10K, table reservations $1500+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Dress to impress.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    When you can get in.

  • Close By

    Head to ACME (9 Great Jones Street), an exclusive restaurant and lounge, for a fabulous dinner before dancing it off at Pink Elephant.

The New Pink Elephant!
Carl R. Jun 24, 2013
The space isn't the largest but it is separated into two areas, a bar near the entrances by the bathrooms and coat check, and the dance area fit for VIP and another bar with bottle service. Bottles are expensive, and can put a big hurt on your wallet if that's your thing. The dance floor fills up pretty quickly, it's not particularly large. I have been fortunate enough to know a promoter there and got to do some event photography, the place is often frequented by celebs. I've been there with a few names that may fill your iPod... Rihanna, Sean Kingston, Nick Cannon, Ace Hood, Chris Brown... just to name a few from the 3 or 4 times I went. I love the layout and decor, and if you're a woman or have a lot of cute female friends you should be able to get in without trouble. I just wish the place was a bit bigger.
Decent

This place can be 4 stars with the decor and whatnots but the space for dancing was small. The service was great and the drinks were strong! The crowd was too young for me, it's definitely more appropriate for the "just turned 21" crowd.
Not as Good as the Original

I wish I had a 2.5 star option because I'm really on the fence about this place. I love the decor with the entrance through the trippy room of mirrors and the layout of the club is great for bottle service but still leaves adequate space for dancing, plus the first bar is usually less full and good for grabbing your first drink before you hit the main room of the club. On the other hand, while the old pink elephant was one of the tougher doors and hotter crowds in the city, the new one was a bit young for my taste, but if I was in my early 20's I think I might like it a bit better. While I'm a big fan of EDM the music I came across on the weekend was a bit too mainstream for my taste, and there were literally girls wearing cutoff neon shirts and fairy wings last time I went - not the high standard I was used to for the old space. Maybe I'm just becoming an old fart, but I'd say the new Pink is good if you're young, but it's not as great for the more mature crowd - and I'm using the term mature loosely here.
Young crowd with good energy

A girlfriend and I walked into Pink Elephant on a Friday night, no hassle. We were skeptical because many reviews say the door is tough. It probably is with larger groups that include men, but 2 girls wasn't an issue. We were pleasantly surprised to find the place filled with a nicely dressed, mostly 20-something crowd. The guest DJ was awesome! He played the latest EDM hits, nothing old and stale. My friend and I struck up conversations and found everyone to be friendly and grounded. I'm relieved to say that this club is unpretentious and still attracts a nice looking crowd that knows how to party. I didn't give this place 4 stars because I didn't have the most amazing night ever, but it's definitely worthy of a repeat visit.
