I went to The Gates for the first time last week thursday and i definitely enjoyed myself. Although it is small but it is a great place to hang out after work with friends. The staff were very friendly.It could be hard to get into these spot but i had no problem because i had connection with promoters. I got in contact with marion(917-557-5787)

Obnoxious and Overrated

When I first arrived the doorman let me in but refused to let me and my friends in at the same time. We had to wait 15 minutes for the rest of the group to arrive. Once inside every person that works there were rude. The drinks were too expensive and the food was medicore. I would never go back or recommend this place to anyone.

I recently went their on a Wednesday for a Mad Men themed party (totally perfect for the vibe of the gates). The main room is gorgeous and a great spot to enjoy cocktails. Management is super friendly and eager to please. The dj was fun during the themed party, but not as great later in the night.

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.
