Good place to party in NYC

  • Yes, I would go back!

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!

Make sure you're not fat or they won't let you in

The management and staff of Pink Elephant Southampton are shallow, superficial creeps. They wouldn't let our friend enter the club on Memorial Day weekend because she was "too fat." That left her in tears. Meanwhile, the front door is staffed by several men who are 40 plus pounds overweight. If misogyny and hypocrisy are your bag this is the place.

These guys pulled a bait and switch on me!

  • No, I would not go back!

I made reservations two weeks in advance for my girlfriends birthday party. They quoted me a price of $800 min per table and when I got there with all my guests they switched the price to 2500 a table. Furthermore, when I asked the doorman for some courtesy he said "your spending $2,500 and we didn’t even shake hands or anything" he actually asked for a kickback. This place is totally unprofessional and it isn’t even that nice. Waist of money. I should have gone to the Bahamas for a weekend.. would have cost me less and i wouldnt have to deal with a rude short bald guy with a purple tie.

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.

Downgrade

By girardasse on 12/14/2007

  • Overall Rating: 4
  • No, I would not go back!

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.

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.

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!.

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

Some Hints:

  • 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.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
