  • Simyone Lounge "SL"

    New York
    Club / Lounge
    Simyone Lounge "SL" - Club | Lounge in New York.
    Nov 12, 2013 Never disappointing "Last time I was at SL was a surprisingly quiet night. It definitely wasn't packed, and didn't even really fill up all the way even at the height of the night (usually there are more people there, in my experience, but it's never over packed). Even so, it wasn't easy to get in and there were people waiting outside who didn't make it in at all. We weren't looking for a super packed atmosphere, so the entire group I was with and I had a great time. A head promoter at a table nearby turned out to know some people we knew, so we spent some time with him, and he definitely was on good terms with the staff and management. The DJ that night was playing a surprisingly "trappy" set, which we were very much into and had a fun time with. I've never had a bad experience here, though usually it's nothing special." hide

  • Finale

    Club
    Finale - Club in New York.
    Nov 12, 2013 Always a fun time "I've only ever had a great time when at Finale. Earlier in the night usually starts out pretty slow, but many nights they have special guests or performances at the club and things will really pick up. On bigger nights, the dance floor gets pretty packed, but it never gets too hot or sweaty like so easily happens at many other clubs. Music changes up depending on who is around that night, so I've been there for DJs that spin more house music and then DJs that have definitely been on more of a hip-hop grind, both of which were great. Definitely a fun place to check out and frequent, especially if you keep up on any special appearances that may be coming through that you particularly want to see." hide

  • Santos Party House

    New York
    Club / Lounge / Music Venue
    Santos Party House - Club | Lounge | Music Venue in New York.
    Nov 12, 2013 Wouldn't go unless I had a specific reason "To me, this venue always feels like a spring break bar. It is usually packed and hot, with a younger crowd of high school and college students. It has been known to feature some good DJs, but their regular DJ is nothing special. They mostly play House music and each Saturday night feels almost a little bit rave-ish. The tables upstairs are packed pretty close together, and they usually squeeze so many people into the VIP section that it feels anything but. I actually fell asleep here one night. I was just extraordinarily tired, and wasn't having a great time, and managed to sit down at an empty table upstairs and literally fall asleep amidst the music and dancing. That goes to show how mundane this venue can be on a typical weekend night. The downstairs room tends to be significantly less crowded, but that means that the type of people down there are not always the ones looking to have the craziest time out. The decor consistently freaks me out, with mannequin limbs all over the place, and heavy use of pointer lighting and smoke machines. Staff here in my experience are pushy and inflexible, which makes sense considering the hordes of people that are usually lined up to go inside. I have had half of my party made to wait outside once half of us had already entered for no apparent reason other than crowd control. They are also particularly strict and stingy about coat check, for which prices vary night to night." hide
