KUSH'S NEW THURSDAY FREE THINKING NYC PARTY IS AMAZING!!
By ladypinc on 5/17/2010
Went out with a group of friends on Thursday and ended up at Kush - and lo and behold they were holding a new party called "FREE THINKING NYC" - it was awesome! The music (two DJ's) was super cool - everything from Slick Rick to The Smiths to Gangstarr and the vibe of the place was great. It was crowded but still had great service and room to dance! This party is a must to check out every other Thursday - I wish it was every Thursday!
Grade A++ for KushÂ’s management

Recently hosted a corporate event at Kush lounge. My clients and VP team were extremely happy. The food was amazing but the service and ease of creating the event was astonishing. Kush will definitely see more of me via for business and personal time! Grade A++

We absolutely loved this place when we went for my friend's bachelorette party!!! Everyone treated so well from the first phone call! They catered to our every need from the front door to the tables. The decor is out of this world, cozy and warm yet elegant at the same time. You feel as if you've been swept away to Morocco for the night. We had delicious drinks and appetizers early on and then stayed for the DJ dance party with the most awesome belly dance show. After 11pm our area was supposed to be bottle service only, but they have these pitchers of cocktails that are an awesome alternative. We loved this place!
The best sounds, atmosphere and drinks

The revived Kush is better than ever. The bar is beautifully decorated. The drinks are strong and the innovative 'specialty cocktails' are worth the extra change. Of course the music is still cutting edge and depending on the crowd and time can be perfect to chill to or move to. Kush blends the refinement of the city's best lounges with a casual authenticity that's hard to find.
Perfect for Parties!

I planned my best friend's bachelorette party here last Saturday for a group of 15 girls and we had an awesome time. We didn't have a problem getting in or anyone else that came later who joined our party. Our group had a great time dancing the night away and enjoy our corner table that we reserved in advance - the required bottle service is a con, however, there aren't many lounges in NYC that you can reserve a table without a minimum. The management and staff at Kush were friendly and ensured our group had fun. I would go back there again for a celebration.

I don't go out that much anymore, but this place is very chill. The music was great, with a DJ spinning reggae and guys rapping over it on the open mike...dub style. Very unique.

Good Vibe, but a total rip off and bad service
By onemoretimearound on 2/20/2009
The vibe was ok, but the service was the worst I've ever had. I ordered a hookah for $30, but it didn't work. I reported the problem and they gave me another coal for it... it still didn't work. Then they told me we had been smoking it for too long, only it hadn't worked from the start. Then they charged me $10 for the extra coal they gave me (a pack of 12 coals cost $2 at any smoke shop). Turns out there was a hole in the hose-- "too bad for you", they said. The food was terrible too, and the music was all wrong -- The only thing they had right was the decor.

This is just another expensive, tacky, bad sound system, bad attitude Lower East Side bar that mixes anything and everything to entice people. Crowd is yuppy and annoying. Bouncers and bartenders are rude. All the positive reviews that are 10 up there are posted by Kush Management. They have many violations on food. It is one of those places I would never set foot in again. But check it for yourself for the benefit of the doubt.
