Music here is good for dancing, It's a club and then around 1:30am they bring popcorn out and show starts every 20mins. Make sure you have a good view of the stage. I work with the best clubs in the city and can help with guestlists, table reservations and plan your night out feel free to text 347.822.2175 or email at NYclubing@gmail.com I would be happy to assist

Welcome to the Box

  • Yes, I would go back!

Of course this place has mixed reviews. For some, this is the greatest place, for others... not so much. I think if you want to have a wild night that you will never forget, you will love the box. Yes, the show is grotesque but that is part of it all. Most certainly memorable. I love it there and its a highlight to my month if I get to go (yes it is pricey). Love the staff, the atmosphere is sexy. definitely a place to go at least once.

I've went there and, for the most part, it was ok.I do agree that the staff can be a bit moody, though.

mistreatment by management

By spraycanartists on 11/3/2010

  • No, I would not go back!

I recently attended the Box. I was escorted out for absolutely nothing with instructions that the manager wished to speak with me. I was left standing in the cold for nearly two hours. I was not disrespectful of the establishment in any way and was not rude to any of the patrons, I was not disorderly. I was simple plucked out because the manager Nov 02 2010, who never spoke with me and obviously felt mine was a night to ruin. I will not be recommending this place to my friends though I feel the performers are excellent. I am an internationally know successful entertainment business owner. I was in a custom suit and the door staff, who remained respectful, described me as one of the best dress persons at the club. I find my treatment by this manager apauling and rude. I intend on making it known that I was treated this way. While waiting for the manager to explain to me why I was expelled into the street I was molested by druggy. My disposable income will not be used to benefit this establishment hence forth.

AVOID THE BOX. RUDE STAFF AND A RIPOFF. NOT RECOMMENDED

By goldbergstein on 9/28/2010

  • Overall Rating: 1
  • No, I would not go back!

We went to the box for a bachelor party. It cost 1600 for the group. We get to our table, which has no view of the stage. The seats actually face away from the stage, with a huge beam in front of 80% of the view. Staff was rude, deceptive and unaccomodating. A bunch of arrogant idiots running the place. Avoid.

Crazy place, strict door.

By PrakashIyer on 5/8/2010

  • Overall Rating: 10
  • Yes, I would go back!

The Box is clearly the craziest place I have been to in NY so far. Sexy, imaginative shows and the people who seemed to frequent this place know how to party. The door is quite strict, but I just had luck on my side the few times i went there. if people have gone here and know similar places please do mention.

zzzzzzzz...

  • No, I would not go back!

burlesque show is hugely disappointing. more like cheap porn. anyone interested in a cool venue, fun bar scene and a well produced burlesque show, go to galapagos art space in dumbo. way more sophisticated.

"it's the box"

By chuckbass7 on 9/19/2009

  • Overall Rating: 10
  • Yes, I would go back!

i walked into the box and watched a transvestite put a dildo up his/her butt, pull it out and eat the condom juice from his/her own behind. ummm, i really saw that. while exhilarated by this performance, i was even more impressed by the next act where a girl had rotating-light-titties in tune to my favorite song on z100. a little alarmed by my surroundings, i turned to a guy (i think) next to me and asked "is this normal?" to which he responded, "this is the box. the BOX. you never know whatcha gonna get." as a first timer, and native new yorker, i was intrigued yet slightly alarmed. but, definitely will go back.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
