What a shame!
By nieve74 on 4/16/2009
My husband and I, a very good looking couple, went there last night. There was a large crowd of people waiting to get in. They called all the girls to go in. The one guy called me and I pulled my husband along. When they saw him they said no to us. My husband showed his Fire Department I.D. and they wouldn't honor it. He was so upset we just took off.
APT = A Poor Taste (of NY Nightlife)
By caryrandolph on 1/3/2009
The staff was surprisingly friendly, including the fur coat-clad bouncer, but they subjected my friend and me (both 20-something females) to an oddly thorough handbag search upon entering the foyer, perhaps in conjunction with the zero tolerance drug policy notice that graces the front door. From there our experience was only lackluster; despite arriving at 10:30 on a Friday night neither the upstairs area, where we split a bottle of too-sweet and overpriced pinot grigio, nor the basement had any energy...and it never picked up. The crowd was an odd mix of suits, Euro tourists, and romantic couples (sipping pink martinis), and the decor seemed plain. Where was the party vibe about which I'd heard so much? The whole scene felt flatter than week-old Champagne.
apt is not history !!!

APT is part of the history of NYC night life but still in the present and future, the music is great every single day, the sound system is very clean, the staff was so nice and pretty (i am in love with this nice brunette at the door) the only bad thing you will ever heard about this place is from someone not cool enough to get in !!! i loved it each time i was there
Goodlooking Place, yeah!!

We went there yesterday ... A very and interesting good looking place -- We have no problems about the service!! The price??? A kind of New yorker price ... 10 dollars to entrance and very expensive drinkes (1 beer = 7 dollars) -- Unfortunatelly we don't appreciate Rap music, but I think is the style of that night ... But I'd look for this information through the website and didn't find it ... That's all!!
The worst of the city

Honestly the worst service of New York City.... 10$ cover aggressively required, rude staff, reservation cancelled... no need to tell you more
A great place for music and drinking lovers

Some Saturday's "BumpShop" nights downstairs are very recommended..you might be able to find a favorite DJ there.The bartenders there might seem to be cold but oneday you would find that they are just being cool and professional...
The search is worth the spoils...

A super swank interior more than makes up for the scanvenger hunt to find it. Absolutely stunning to the eye. Lay back and observe the scenery (both decor and human) and sip libations, head below for spins and sins in the low-lit underbar, or step to the deck for a bit of air. Staff was a bit cold and even more pretensious than I would have liked, but then with a spot like that...wouldn't you be also?
fantastic joint for a night out

Being an Australian in NYC on business, it was great to find such a great location to have a drink and listen to some emphatic beats. DJ Emskee & Monk1 on Wednesday nights are first-rate & the dinks mixed by resident bartender -Mike are worth the trip. -Nate-

APT has a fun hip vibe that brings out some extra ambience to The Meat Packing District. A young professional crowd that mixes with a modern look. A clean layout overall.
APT is the place for great DJ's
