Good place to party in NYC

I went to Pink Elephant for the first time the other night and had a great time! The music was good, the design on the inside was awesome, and there were plenty of hot girls to talk to. The doormen weren't as strict as others were saying on this site; you just have to dress up a bit which is normal for NYC night life. Overall, if you're looking to have a good night then head to Pink Elephant for sure!
Pink is alway great

I fly in to NY and Pink is my first choice for a meeting place. If you are dressed up and want a dressed to impress crowd, not TOO young, so you can have an intelligent conversation...go there. I'm never there at 2 AM..so I don't know who the bouncers are keeping out, if anyone. We always get in..no big wait. Go earlier..at 9 or 10 after a show...you'll get in.
Pink is a Great club to meet new friends...& for afterwork business meetups

We just went to a great afterwork party and Pink is beautiful. The house music was just right for conversation and the crowd was a classy social mix... very nice, polite, interesting, funny people. Well dressed. I worried because other reviews said how hard it was to get in. We had tickets.... Pink hosts these really upscale fundraisers sometimes... if you can get invited...I'd say go. Manhattanpromotions does them. There are lots of bars where you can feel really uncomfortable, Pink Elephant is a great place. Later in the night we were dancing, too. and the night owls started coming at 11. It was hard to leave as the party ramped up even more.

Ive been to Pink a couple of time before but I came here with my girls for NYE and had an amazing time. The place is absolutely gorgeous and filled with beautiful people. Dj Mitch had the crowd going crazy with his house music. Such great energy here. This is the place to be.
Bring a date

Yeah. This is "the club". Yes, its hard to get in. Dont think you are walking up. I go to every club. They play the best music and its not young and dumb. Its a good, mature, weathy crowd that is so nice to see in this day and age of kid clubs. this is the place to bring clients, bring people you want to impress. If you dont know an owner, find someone who does as they are the "key" to getting you in. BEST music. Only place that does not play hip hop or TECHCO. Its a nice euro style house and not "drug" house. Its upscale and probably the most exclusive club in NYC outside of Bungalow 8.

I loved this venue. iwent based on article I read about bottle service and how the owners started it. They KNOW how to run a club, thats for sure. This is not for the faint at heart. Spend money and bring beautiful or well connected people with you!

I have been a few times for special parties, and the DJ has always been spectacular, nice vibe and everyone gets their groove on.

6 months ago, I was giving Pink a 7 with the following comment: Pros: Nice, "clean" crowd, great effects, good atmosphere, great decor. Cons: Music is too loud, cant forget your ID. After going back recently, I have to downgrade Pink to 4. Not only music was still too loud but I found the staff at the door (not inside) ungracious and the ratio of guys was much too high. That was probably my last time at Pink, unless theres some kind of special event there.

My husband and I reserved the table in Pink Elephant on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving. We paid 2000 USD + for the table, and I left the names of my friends who were supposed to join us with the man who was handling the guest list at the door. I thought my friends never made it, but apparently when they arrived they were completely ignored. The guy with the guest list refused to look for their reservation name, which is completely outrageous and unprofessional for the place like that and for paying customers. The other guy at the door accused them of not wanting to pay. They did not even get a chance to send for the table host like in the previous review. Both of my friends were young attractive women with a very respectful background. Throughout the whole night the crowd, there were letting in was around 21, drunk men and sleazy college girls. In the end I was very embarrassed that I invited the friends of our status to such a place.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
