They have a 3 bottle minimum. Just ask Gregory Barnard: http://www.nypost.com/seven/12302007/news/regionalnews/bruising_battle_on_boozy__147966.htm He is suing Arena nightclub. He alleges that they told him there was a 3 bottle minimum, and he had to pay $700 for 2 bottles he NEVER EVEN DRANK. The bouncers beat him, kidnapped him, forcibly took him to the ATM, called the police, and had him arrested for not paying. Now he is suing them for 2 million dollars. Ask yourself - Would you want to go to a place like that?

We went there on a Saturday for bottle service. It was a nice looking place. The service was terrible though. Our waitress didn't speak english and I saw her twice throughout the night. They were out of about every type of alcohol (their excuse was that they had a crazy Friday night). We also had trouble getting everyone in... The bouncers kept giving everyone a hard time, asking them to pay cover although we ended up paying for $2,500 worth of alcohol. By far, the most annoying part was that we made a reservation in advanace, and they did not even have record of it when we arrived. I even called ahead of time to confirm. Just a poorly run place.

The space was rather nice. The crowd was young. The music was RnB radio songs: it was so loud that I felt pain in my ears not only at the club but the following day and several days later. I'll never go back...

Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
