Snooty Velvet Rope
By hollaback on 5/29/2009
Have fun with pricey drinks and pushy service, IF you can get in. After happy hour, the bouncers at the front door are hatin' on regular folks. So very meatpacking circa three or four years ago. Not worth it at this cab only accessible location during the recession. My regular, employed a** will take my money where they like me.

I've been to Hudson Terrace twice, both times I've had to deal with overly obnoxious door people who on a night when the place was totally empty and the music sucked had the nerve to limit entry (even though a table was already reserved and members of the party inside). This place isnt worth the cab ride.
NEVER GO HERE

I would highly discourage anyone from going there for the following reasons: The employees were beyond rude. The man who was passing out paper towel outside the bathroom not only yelled into the stall to get my friends and I to move faster, but he went so far as to open the door on my friend. In addition, another friend was robbed in the bathroom. She was having her 21st birthday at Hudson Terrace, had brought a majority of the clientele in for the evening, and she was punched in the face and robbed. The employees consist of some of the most immoral and distasteful people I have ever met. I love living in NY and I have never had an experience as horrible as the one I had at Hudson Terrace. This place should be shut down.
worst rooftop bar
By SWT on 8/16/2009
my friends and i came a lil early like around 9, so we were able to get a great seat and the bitchy server didn't even tell us about their 'policy' so we ordered pitchers of margaritas and food while waiting for 3 of our friends, when they came around 10,the people downstairs said they can't up come up because it's bottle service and for reservations only,so they explained that we were there already and they told r friends the that we have to get a bottle service with a minimum of $1000?! (are you kidding me?! they are on the 3rd floor for crying out loud and this in not a high end roof top!) or else our friends can't come up. so we decided to meet our friends on the 2nd floor, finished our pitcher and head out! this is the worst rooftop bar i've ever been to! never coming back here again and never will i recommend this. go to sky terrace,ava lounge or 230 5th where they have better views and better servers!

Went to Hudson Terrace and thought it totally sucked. The website makes this place look huge but it's not that big at all. They charge a hefty admission at the door and it would have a nice view if they actually let you see it. You're expected to stand in the pit-like dance floor with no view while they block the window area with the actual view unless you pay for bottle service at the tables there. So what did you pay for when you paid at the door? Nothing but the view of the brick walled building next to you and the sweat of the Jersey guy in the pit you're standing next to. Three drinks for $42 and there wasn't a drop of alcohol in any of them. The staff treats people like garbage, the bathroom looks like it belongs in a cheap dirty pub and the music is loud & sucky. I feel like this club is trying to bring back the pretentiousness of clubs from the 80's & 90's but people in 2010 aren't stupid enough to waste their money to be treated rudely & drink watered down drinks in a pit with no view. Maybe that's why this club mainly markets to meetup dot com groups because you'd only go there if you've never been there before or if you've never been to a club before.

We just called the event planner about the 4th of July party, if we had to pay $100 for our 4 yr old as we would be a family of 4. The guy said 'unfortunately yes,' and hung up on me. No explanation, no 'but if she was 2 she would not have to pay- no information, not helpful at all. Have to say, we do not recommend this place for families!!
wouldnt recommend this place to my worst enemy...

I came here for my 21st bday on Fri after a month of planning.I spent close to 1k.which I DID NOT plan on.I planned to buy1 bottle & was promised a VIP seat but instead got a corner table in the middle of a dance floor that was overcrowded & could barely seat just 1 person.Had to buy another $325 bottle +20% tax to get an actual half-decent seat...Many of my guests were denied entry because the door man was being a dick. My guests were not supposed to pay a cover (as mentioned by the host)if I was receiving bottle service.A bouncer even told one of my guests that he would only let him I'm if he paid him $60 +cover of $20.The population is predominantly caucasian, there's not a lot of diversity.They also said that music on a Friday would be "a mix of top 40, hip-hop, dance."They played 5 mins of not even up to date hip-hop and the rest of the night was a whole bunch of dance/techno shit I've NEVER heard on the radio before in my life. Bathrooms are small as hell. The side view is of a parking lot(rooftop is on 3rd flr)the only thing u don't have to worry about is lines.every1 seemed to be goin to the club across the st. Place completely blew mines to the point that no matter how many drinks I had I could not feel nice due 2 the stress of running downstairs every 5 mins cuz they weren't letting my ppl in. O yea & if u ever want bottle service here make sure u bring a credit card because they have 2 (preauthorize it) even if ur paying cash.something not previously mentioned

Past its prime but therein lies its charm

Hot a few years ago, the place is now back to ground level. Enjoy the fabulous decor and great drinks ...and now you can actually get in the place!

Hudson Terrace is a great place to go, it is trendy, romantic, full of beautiful people, very classy. I love it and recommand it to you. The decoration is warm and very artistic, the staff is very well trained and polite. Plus, for the practical side, I parked my car at an Indoor parking in 670 W 43 street called "Parkright" 2 blocks away from the Hudson Terrace, so convenient. I paid only 20 dollars for the all night. Very reasonnable price for a parking in that area. Again, I really recommand you that trendy, beautiful place with the heartbreathing view and raffined food.
