First I called to ask what type of music would be playing & spoke to a woman. I let her know that I would be coming there on Friday night after my cousin's wedding with my cousin & the bridal party. She told me to speak to Max at the front and he would do his best to take care of us. Obviously, being such a happy occasion for the family, we were ready to spend a lot of money. Max did not give us the proper treatment we deserved. He would only let 3 of us in. He was rude and I would never go back there. To not let a bride and bridal party in is just cruel. Also, for those who may not read these reviews, I will make sure everyone I know does not ever go to Level V.
Girls' night out

We were seven girls out on the town, we were treated very well, didn't queue to get in, and danced a lot to great music! We'll definitely be back!

The music at Level V is awesome. If you are tired of the same old club music, this is a welcome change. The bartenders are nice, the waitresses are gorgeous and the atmosphere is cool. The mixers for the tables are also not your average, tonic, cranberry, and soda. They have watermelon juice, mango, and other interesting flavors. The two problems I have with this place is that A) they are not open enough (only 4 days a week) and B) the place can get a little crowded. Still all in all Level V is a great club.

I would just like to say that I have never been so dissapointed of a NYC club in my life. The bottle service was terrible and finally when we did receive the bottle it was a grey goose bottle with 2 dollar vodka poured inside it. To insult my intelligence is one thing, but to stoop so low as to keep picking up the same bottle of grey goose to bring in the back to fill up with cheap vodka is another. Bobby was our table server who obviously needs to get a little smarter with how he runs his fake bottle service. Just a hint Bobby, it is illegal by law to do what you did, so you might want to clean your act up before you get the place shut down.
Don't bother with this place!!!

On my husband's birthday end of January, we decided to try Level V, called in advance to add names on the list. We were 5 people (3 girls and 2 guys) . After dinner we headed to the club. We were at the door at 1:02Am!!! The extremely rude door monkeys refused to let us in without paying $25 each, saying it was past 1AM! I couldn't believe my ears... everyone had to pay. Meanhwile we saw at least 3 bimbos go past us without opening their wallets! +Once inside the place was overpacked with what seems like overgrown teenagers. Music was terrible and the place very stuffy and cave like. With some many great places in NYC why bother with these wannabies.

Watered down was the atmosphere and the vodka. If you don't mind standing around watching a bunch of dyed blonds wearing Bebe dresses from last season with the sparkling pumps to match flirting with over-worked and underpaid men and hoping to snag a millionaire, then maybe you'll have a good time. However, don't count on getting your buzz from the alcohol served. You pay 11 dollars for cranberry and vodka and get served a small cup of tepid cranberry juice-sans vodka. Think I am kidding? My friends and I thought it was just us and then ordered a round of shots to and it had no affect! Obviously, a shot of water will never dull anyone's wits. This club is a no-no as far as drinking. Arrive drunk and perhaps you'll have a blast.

We went for my friends birthday on a Thursday night and enjoyed an open vodka bar for an hour. Some of the friendliest bar tenders in town. The whole cavern thing I thought was pretty cool for privacy. The crowd is beautiful and very social. The few waitresses they have were there when you needed them. A decent place to start getting into the nyc club scene. Just dress well.

This place is horrible!!! I would NEVER reccomend anyone to go to Level V. I've been there once, and it was very empty. The second time I tried to go in for my birthday, they refused my party, of 10, to get in, because the blonde chic at the door tried to convince us to buy at least 2 bottles. We took a limo to the city, we were all dressed very presentable, and I had 8 more people coming. Therefore, we all still would've spent a lot of money on drinks. And it's not like she came about it in a nice way. She was very rude and her selling skills were terrible. I would never go there again. We went to another place down the street; way nicer and we all got in, spent a lot of money on drinks and had a good time. Don't ever go this place, it's not worth it! For them to treat people like garbage, for a tiny place that wasn't even crowded, it's really stupid.

I went here last Friday. First, it was a sausage fest. Not only that, but the men were rejects. Second, it took forever to get a drink. When we did get them, they were overpriced. $16 for a glass of cheap and disgusting champagne and $15 for cocktails. The worst part of the night was by far the bathroom attendant. She demanded money from everyone. When I refused to give her $1 for a paper towel, she informed me that this was not a charity and told me not to come back to the bathroom and the sad pathetic woman actually wanted to fight! She charged another girl $1 for 2 lifesavers! Oh, and to make matters worse, the she thought it would be appropriate to scream at me later on in the night as I left the club. YES~ "as i left the club!" She came to the door and started screaming about this not being a charity and whatnot. Needless to say, I am glad that I didn't give her the dollar. Although the bouncers were nice, there was no line and no cover, I would never go back.
