Crazy Night @ Macao Downstairs

  • Yes, I would go back!

I had a good night out in Tribeca and it came out of no where. I would definitely go back to this place it isn't pretentious but has a cool-guy vibe and when I went there were a bunch of cute girls lurking around. The spot is dark and not too big, makes it feel kind of private... and the room is designed like an Opium den / 1920s brothel hangout lounge. Bartender made good cocktails, and drinks were priced fairly (for lower manhattan).

  • No, I would not go back!

I used to love coming to this place, but the last few times I went the wait-staff were incredibly rude and the drinks poorly made. I've decided never to go back after being seated by the hostess and then forced to leave the table by the maitre'd after ordering food and drinks!! The maitre'd claimed the table was reserved, but the attitude we received was unbelievably rude and inconsiderate. After all, we had been sitting for 20 minutes and ordered full dinners and cocktails. They made no effort to be accommodating. This place is a no-go.
