This club is just amazing if you like rap/hip hop music you will love it. It starts late so go there after 2am then you will love it. They are really picky at the door but thanks to Indi we got in without problem and he took care of us all night long and gave us free drinks all the time. This guy is the best, you should contact him on his facebook: Indi Romero. He is also working in many others venues of the city!

Hands down one of the best nightclubs in the city. Its not big but the door is very selective so its never get too packed. 1OAK is the only party that last till 5:00 in the morning and still poppin. Beautiful girls, good hip hop music and you can easily spots celebrities sitting next to you. The best nights are Sunday, Tuesday and Saturday. I work with the best clubs in the city and can help with table reservations and guest lists at over 30 venues. Hit me up if you need any recommendation 347-822-2175 or email me at NYclubing@gmail.com

maybe go to this one. Read many scathing reviews, but I would hardly consider this place contentious. Yes, its going to be annoying; yes, you are going to be made to wait in line/possibly ignored based on your appearance/made to spend $$$ on bottles; and yeah, people are going to be drunk. Guys, its a club in manhattan. Thank you Educat (9/12), for the comparison of the rent in your neighborhood to the estimated salaries of the doormen who turned you away. This is both appropriate and helpful within the scope of this discussion**. I really haven't been here in a while, but I remember a fairly classic club with good aesthetics, attractive women and a good girl:guy ratio. I had a great time and feel like this club is less terrible than the alternatives. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **What is wrong with you?

Not sure why this place is so hyped. Crowd looks like any other NYC club crowd with a college feel. In my opinion, this club had a "commercial crowd" with too many sloppy people. I was looking for a unique feel but it seemed just ordinary. Not my scene..!

We came from Sydney for xmas / NYE 2012 and went to 1OAK for our New Years celebrations. We got there at 11pm and the crowd was so overly drunk. A little after we took our seats and were served our drinks, two men at the table opposite us started to vomit into carafe and drinking glasswear. When we asked the table staff if they could leave the response was "no, they've paid to be here so they can stay as long they like". I feel as we also paid to be there this was totally unacceptable along with poor hygiene for the surrounding guests.

I am an educated African American female with a Bachelors Degree. Born and raised in New York City. I have never been so boldly discriminated and humiliated. I waited as the first person online for a celebrity event with no reservation or guestlist accomodation. I watched the slim Caucasian "doorman" turn people away. Three Caucasian Australian men came. They agreed to pay for 2 bottles for $1000, & to bring me & a Caucasian female into the club. None of us knew each other prior or had any reservations, we were all just looking to have a good time. The door men called the manager or owner to the door to speak with the 3 guys about bottle service, however, just before the manager went in, the doorman, whispered something to the manger. The manager kept saying "why you didn't tell me that before?" Finally the security allowed the group of Caucasians to enter and I was turned away. I politely asked them why and told them that was discrimination. It might not be a color discrimination, but I was definitely discriminated against for one reason or another. I was never rude or disorderly. I just find it funny because, when I questioned their actions. The doorman asked was I buying bottles. I said "we were all in the same boat, and it was agreed, I could accompany the group." The security told me it is the doorman's job to discriminate. Woww! It's even more hilarious because I live on the Upper Eastside. The rent in my neighborhood is probably more than their employee salary!

Of couse I want to hang out and have a good time, but I can't do that when any protest to the service I'm getting is met with angry reactions and threats. These guys clearly don't care about you unless you've been on the cover of US Weekly so unless you're the lowest maintenance person in the world, don't bother going.

Where has the customer service level gone in this city? The manager of this shift decided that questioning the bartenders Shaken Marguarita was the most horrible thing I could do and threatened to have me thrown out. If you see a 5'6" balding spikey haired blonde manager coming your way, run in the other direction. This fellow doesn't play around and if you upset him he will force you to leave the club. I apologized for questioning things as is my god given right and he response was that I was the kind of aggressive client they had no desire to cater to.

This place cracks me up! First off, they have anywhere between 8 and 10 doormen to control the moderate-size crowd that forms outside--one skinnier guy makes the decision on who gets in primarily letting in all his friends and women with above D-size breasts or above 6 feet tall [I mean, I would do the same on the latter]. Once you have cleared the door, the only redeeming quality of the club is the music. The crowd is pretty unexciting, full of underaged and anorexic models or large-breasted prostitutes/wannabe pornstars [e.g., it was difficult not to stare at the blonde with a cutoff dress exposing her cleavage], so if that is your scene then you have found your place! The crowd inside does not justify the heavy door security since there was plenty of space even at the most crowded point of the night. Occasional celebrity sightings, but much cooler clubs if that is your forte! Many groups of people are clearly smoking pot or doing cocaine and the drinks are overpriced [you should drink before hand if you want to get drunk unless you plan to spend several hundreds of dollars to still be sober]. If you know someone personally or arrive early enough to avoid doorman antics, this place could be average, but otherwise, don't waste your time. The doorman makes decision based on his mood, and right after he adjusts his attitude, he could also use a makeover. Thank you 1 Oak for a very inadequate club experience. I will be sure to not return any time soon!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
