This place is really cool. I was fortunate enough to go with a friend who knew the promoters there so I skipped the line and didn't have to pay. We also got free bottle service so I guess the night is always better when everything is free. I know what everyone means about the guys at the door being really rude and arrogant. But if you can get in it's really worth it. The house music is really good because you can sing along to some of the songs. If you also want to be surrounded by beautiful people and feel like you're on another planet because everyone looks so perfect, Marquee is the place to be. I highly recommend it, especially for a foreigner like myself. Even just to go there once and experience it. If you don't like it you don't have to go back. The hard part is trying to get in though. So if you can get past the door you're guaranteed to have a good night.

We went to Marquee on a trip to NYC and got in without any problems, even dressed in Target jeans and plain black tops. The interior is VERY nice, very stylish and modern. Music is ok (we went on a Saturday). But - ohmygod - the people! Never have I been to a place that has as many stuck-up people in it all at once. Nobody smiles, everyone apparently thinks they're the next supermodel (not to mention that I didn't see any hot guys). What a joke! These model wannabe girls came in and climbed over the couches (instead of walking 3 feet around them to sit down), and then the one chick proceeded to literally SIT ON my friend's drink (she had posed it on the back of the couch). Inconsiderate, stuck-up, anorexic looking, and without any manners! We left after 2 hours, it was just no fun. Go here if you want to see a modern club interior, NOT for the people!

Real New Yorkers, the powerful and connected, simply do not patronize Marquee. Why? Because at the end of the day and despite all the hype, Marquee is simply a club and not a very good one at that. Those seeking to find quintessential club life in New York would be far better off patronizing some of the other venues in the vicinity of Marquee such as STEREO, RETOX, STUDIO MEZMOR, ARENA, THE PLUMM etc. Why? Because they do not pretend to be something that they are not. Beyond the glitz and psuedo exclusivity of Marquee is a vapid facade and an organization which believes that as a patron clubgoer you need to be insulted before being provided with the privilege of access, in order to appreciate their sparse offerings relative to other more modern hip venues with a more diverse crowd. Marquee insults your intelligence by selling a false notion of status rather than amenities which you can only appreciate if you have no self esteem. Inside you will find a soul less vibe of insecure social wannabe's & the rudest doorstaff, both in NYC & the Hamptons (at DUNE) period. Yes, I have been inside both joints.

Marquee was by far the highlight of the three clubs we partied in this past weekend (Lotus and Level V were the other two.) The music was thumping, the people were beautiful and being two attractive girls, we breezed through the ropes. If you go VIP the bottle service will run you about $400, but it is worth the expense to have your own area. I cannot wait to go back.

I had come down to NYC for some down time, after all my thinking and alone time done, I was ready to see what the big apple had to offer! I think the beauty for me with Marquee lay in the fact that I wasn't tainted with any premonition (didn't know anything about it till I was at the doorstep) quite contrary to some of the other reviews, I was treated with the utmost courtesy, despite 'an accent and being foreign' for me when the doors opened it was like walking into an intriguing, evocative and entrancing land of clubbing with sophistication and finesse! I am quite a party person and being in London do party A LOT! So far though, nothing has beat the extaordinary experience of the live drummer on the Brazilian samba like drums amongst dancers on the dance floor, while different contemporary club music blended in the background and complimented the drum beats!!!! You can't make a place pretentious if you are not prententious already-in other words its not the place that's pretentious. Marquee is definitely a MUST DO when in New York!

From just hanging out with your good friends, to seeing celebrities bump into you, this nightclub is one of the best hott spots in NYC to be.

It's amazing. Sorry for people who cannot get in, you have to know somebody or be somebody. thats how the hott clubs work. It an amazing club though.

I've entered this bar by skipping the line as a VIP. Overall, the design of the club is mediocre, the DJs and the music is outdated, the place is very crowded. If this is the so-called number 1 club in NYC, then it's a shame on NYC's nightlife. I don't know what else I could write on this, nothing really caught me.

If you really feel you must go out, and you want to make sure that there will be people there, go to Marquee. If you go through the week and you're a model, be prepared to say no to a lot of drunk playboys, because there seems to be an aweful lot of men waiting to cut you off in the club's intersections. On nights like Friday and Saturday, you can find refuge amoungst the beautiful people, but it's one of those clubs that's so big and crowded that you should be more worried about not losing your friends in a tangle of lines at the bar or restroom, or wandering around in the dark upstair interior. Marquee has a reddish ambience and wide-open feeling. It's kind of like a bad dream with a sinister undertone, because you can't see past the wall of people, it's so huge, and the hazy scarlet light makes you feel like something is wrong.

Marquee is still going strong! The music is great, the crowd is always beautiful and interesting, and I keep coming back for more -- this has been my favorite spot for almost two years now. I can't help but notice that almost all of the bad reviews are by people who didn't get in -- don't let them deter you from seeing what this club is like on the inside!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
