At 10PM the party was suppose to move upstairs but it was delayed until 11PM. Our group party moved upstairs and sat in one the areas ( NO RESERVED CARD). About one... More

We apologize Frank for such bad experience you and your friends had. Sometimes people reserve the VIP tables at the last minute in that same night, because whether they don't trust or they don't like to pay online through our website. The floor change for events and parties is something we have to improve, and your feedback is definitely helpful.... More

Wonderful atmosphere. So friendly. This is a classy club with so much history. So much a part of the New York scene. You have to experience this club at least once in your life.

Excellent music and atmosphere for salsa music lovers, that's the place to go, the drinks were sensible priced so you don't need a fortune to have a good time. Highly recommended.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
