Groovy

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

Completely unprofessional

By oromina on 11/24/2006

  • No, I would not go back!

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.

Great Venue

By DavidCohen on 1/4/2007

  • Yes, I would go back!

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!

Bring a date

By NightclubGuy on 1/4/2007

  • Yes, I would go back!

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.

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.

Pretentious. Full of jersey skanks. Why are places like this popular?

Doesn't matter what happen, DO NOT GO to Pink Elephant!.

Are you a single, well dressed, good looking girl which is out with a friend for a wild single girls night? DON'T go to PE! In fact, you would never gain the entrance there. The only way in which the shaved guy at the entrance let you get in, if you are a student, with sneakers and a guy. Yesterday, Thursday, I had the bad idea to go there with a friend (rather than go to surely nicer places as PM or 20 June) and this PERSON arbitrary decided that me and my friend (two attractive single girls, very polite and at their first- and last!- experience at PE!) were not "enough" to gain the entrance. I saw groups of only unattractive guys go in. I saw students with sneakers and jeans, enter. But two pretty girls, not. Moreover, me and my friend were on list, which should guarantee us the entrance, but it did not help at all! Save you night! DON'T GO TO PINK ELEPHANT!.

They make you feel like a fat kid trying to get into a high school party...

  • No, I would not go back!

Made reservations at Pink Elephant. I changed plans for us to wine and dine at the Buddha Bar (should have gone there, place is great) around the corner, convinced my associates that reservations were taken care of, and took a car so the ladies would not have to walk far. When I arrived we waited in line so as not ruffle any feathers with the people who were already waiting. About ten minutes later, I made it to the door and mentioned that we were on the list. My polite introduction was met with a shrug-off from an unprofessional doorman moonlighting as a bouncer. He was completely unconcerned that we had, "'supposedly' put our names on the list," despite describing in patient detail my conversation with the reservation girl over the phone. His response was, "it doesn't matter if you are on the list, we take people off the list who aren't important enough to remain on the list." No argument ensued, I simply turned to my friends, who all looked back at me like they couldn't believe what they had just heard, and we walked away.
