Oh fountainblue you are indeed very beautiful; the crowd, the lighting & your lobby is so chic. It was love at first sight. Me & the girls went out to see what the hype was about for a pre NYE ladies night pre-party. Even though I had a great pre drink at your Blue Bar I was getting a bit impatient waiting on your rude doorman to let me in... Mr. Doorman you love tall blonde model type ladies, you love hipsters, tourists dressed down, couples (a first for me when you go to a club), well to do looking men or men alone or in groups (another big surprise), people that call you by your name which you pretend you know & crack a smile for a minute... SO FAKE Lol... Now a cute group of brunette ladies dressed to kill, not so much... I was very confused..disappointed, bit heartbroken. What gives????? My cousin visiting from Peru finally yelled out," what the hell do u need to do to get in this place??? " You looked, smirked & told us to go in quickly like you were doing us a huge favor or maybe had a surprise for us...Veuve Cliquot Bottle?? lol. We rushed almost giddy.. Alas we are in after paying a large cover that went from $20 advertised online to $30 since you decided we were not worth using your handy free passes. Oh well.. Girls wanna have fun. I see why people like you, WOW a very large 2 story club & beautiful lighting. Decor is very Vegas baby! Large bar downstairs, small dance floor (didn't get this) lots of VIP areas... We ordered a couple drinks & danced for hours. Nice crowd, VIP areas were full. Bathroom downstairs very small. You draw a crowd lil Liv, good for u. Music was ok, nothing to write home about... The best part was the mini intermission with the humpa loompas breaking it down... Will I return? I don't think so...too pretentious for me, drinks are expensive, DJ didn't impress me..but you are still very beautiful....

Read my review about the one in Faniuell Hall - Same thing except I think the downstairs is a restaurant that looks decent - not dingy. I enjoyed this place more because I was here on a Thursday night and it was less crowded. Bar tender was quick because the scorpion bowls are pre-made... so our bowl was never dry.

This has an elegant and sophisticated charm, with a prohibition speakeasy spin to the lounge's theme. Slide is definitely not a dark and dirty lounge using the term "speakeasy" to cover up where it's lacking. Walking or sliding into this hidden underground scene definitely gives off a cool vibe and offers an intimate setting for friends to enjoy some great cocktails and the unique dcor. Everything from the DJ spinning out of the baby grand piano, to the slide, and the plasma screens showing street level footage creates a whole new definition for a renovated speakeasy lounge.
