Terrible Service

  • No, I would not go back!

I decided to stop and check this place out for a party due to all of the excellent feedback. The service was terrible, everyone was so rude!! from the bouncer to the lady in charge!! It didnt make sense, they had no one in the place there even!! Well i would not recommend this place to any one, the bouncer is the rude and obnoxious.

Sex Appeal

I grew up in new york, and I think Ive been to so many lounges and bars as well as clubs. I believe it was a thursday or friday night and me a some of my girlfriends were looking fore somewhere new to hang out. one of my girlfriends recomended that we try this lounge on 1st and 1st, named "SUTRA". The name alone sounded pretty interesting to me. We head over there that night, and from the moment I walked in I was in aww. I thought the whole decor was amazing. so inviting, romantic, and extremly sensual. The whole red velvet vibe, candles, and budha statues were awesome. The bathrooms had pictures from the "KAMA SUTRA" book, wich I thought to be quite fitting. All in all I had a great time and this place really does not compare to any other. It very unique and lavish in its decor. the drinks were great and the staff were very outgoing and especially one bartender who twirled bottles to pour out drinks. Very Cool.

Privileged Parties

Found this under the radar hot spot when a friend had her birthday at Sutra last month... I just graduated and was looking for a place to celebrate. I remembered the amazing personal service my friend recieved. Served her cake and champagne, shout outs at the DJ booth.... We had about 75 people, and everyone got in no problem. We did an open bar for an hour cause we couldnt beat the price, and they even created a drink special for us. The DJ was off the hook and played Hip Hop, Latin, Reggae, Rock n' Roll, 80's and even a little Bhangra! We celebrated all nite and were treated like gold by the entire friends and I love this place and look to it as our #1 spot for all our wont be disappointed

An Experience to Experience

I dont ordinarily get on these things and write a review, but Im compelled to share my experience about Sutra, because it was unique. Like alot of people I needed to book a space for a private party. With food, open bar, the works. When I called to find out information I spoke directly with the owner, who addressed all of my concerns. When it came to the actual event I was supprised that the owners were there throughout the night to make sure that everything was as I wanted. From begining to end. Thats what was so unique. There was a personal care there I didnt anticipate but it was so much appreciated. Thats why I was compelled to write this review. Because when I read somthing in the contrary about this warm and honestly loving spot I felt the need to let everyone know that Sutra Lounge is unique and VERSATILE to your needs. The owners were beyond generous as was the whole staff. Love this place and dont let anyone tell ya different!! Just call them and see for yourself.
