Party Earth The Hurricane Club Review

The Scene

Designed to resemble an upscale Polynesian beach club, The Hurricane Club is an elegant restaurant and lounge that draws an attractive clientele of fashionable young professionals.

Designed to resemble an upscale Polynesian beach club, The Hurricane Club is an elegant restaurant and lounge that draws an attractive clientele of fashionable young professionals.

True to its theme, the vast main room centers around a posh take on a tiki bar, albeit topped by a complex chandelier, where white-jacketed bartenders whip up flamboyant cocktails containing everything from rum infused with ginger to cucumbers and passion fruit.

A liberal sprinkling of ferns, palm trees, and exotic plants carry the breezy theme to the rest of the central restaurant, which is decked out in light wood, soaring mirrors, and comfy green booths, where jovial patrons gather to share pu pu platters and group drinks served in coconuts and watermelons.

Four elevated satellite rooms – including the Lagoon Lounge, the Bora Bora Black & White Room, and the red and gold Volcano Room – provide more space for diners to enjoy their sizzling platters of exotic specialties, while those looking for a slightly different experience can head down to the basement for a “rum and shine” – a shoeshine combined with a take-home sample of rum from a fountain that looks a little too much like a urinal.

Laid back and usually full of chatty, outgoing guests, The Hurricane club offers patrons an escape where they can trade in the hustle and bustle of city life for a mini tropical vacation in their own backyard.

Tip from Adriana:

Stopping in with the girls after work on Friday to share big group cocktails is the best way to kick off the weekend. Bring a change of shoes, though, because stumbling home in Manolos is no fun.

Oh Ship!
Risa C. Dec 6, 2012
Coming through the imposing doors into a room filled with white blazered waiters and a tiki bar in the center of the room, I did actually feel like I was on a cruise ship or tropical club despite being bundled up from the NYC winter. I've been here a few times for dinner/drinks and overall liked the experience but found it to be more of a novelty restaurant or place to be seen rather than a place I would make a local spot. The drinks are a bit on the pricey side as would be expected in a trendy NYC restaurant, but they are quite good and it's always fun to have mojitos served in half a coconut or a watermelon full of rum. As far as the food, a lot of it was hit or miss, but I do have to give the place a strong recommendation for birthday dinners especially since you can get a private room and their filling prix fixe menu for a reasonable price.
A storm among hurricanes

Given the epic nature of New York City clubs and bars like Beauty & Essex and Hotel Chantelle, I found Hurricane Club underwhelming. It was too big to be epic, too epic to be big. More so, I found its decor to be slightly less original than this review makes it out to be. I didn't quite get the whole Polynesian thing at all, though maybe I wasn't looking for it. What I will give Hurricane Club is its staff--the people here were incredible friendly, very attentive, and mixed some delicious drinks for me as I hung out at the bar. Given the other reviews for this place, I may simply have been the wrong audience for it, but given how hard it was sold to me, I found this club underwhelming over all.
A True Tropical Storm

Forget Reunion Bar. The Hurricane Club is Manhattan's true island bar. With drinks being served in anything from a watermelon to a red pepper, after a few you'll begin to wonder if maybe you were shipwrecked with Gilligan and you're all now playing survivor. Come in a group. Although it's a fun time, you can't always get a table so you'll find yourself sprawled out on chaises in their hallway lounge. It's definitely a location that you show up to pre-game at. I can't imagine this being your last stop because the drinks while good, are also filling, so you can't have too many pineapple bowls in one sitting.
Great pregame place

I love Hurricane Club, it is a great place for a late small dinner, drinks then out for a full night!
