WHOMP WHOMP! Come here if you want to wait in line and never get in unless you're middle eastern. Seriously... i'm not being racist or anything... but i was in line for a good 30 minutes, and they told me the club was at full capacity, yet they were still letting people in. Not all people but only middle eastern people. WTF.........! I don't get it!!!!! I got arab money... i wanna go spend arab money at your club! LET ME IN!!

This is a place where a lot of things are going on whether you know or not. The first time I have been here was several years ago to a silent art charity auction which was private invitations only. A friend of friend had a beautiful and sad at the same time photograph from the hurricane Katrina disaster ( Photographer Aric Mayer http://www.aricmayerst...- love his photographs), auctioned in the event and sold. This elegant event was hosted for people with $$$. I saw Steve Martin and he was very interested in an art piece of vintage ad. Not sure he got it though. By the way, the food was nothing special. Back in this year, my friend kept mentioning about this place. Without realizing it is the same place, I was surprised to find out this is a bar/club or even had upstairs! The Park is huge.. this is where you can picnic on your heels and in suits holding some wine and spirits w/o much fuss. The downstairs are gigantic and feels like you are in a park indeed. The bar area is attractive and the fire places add unique ambience.. just remember not to fall asleep being too cozy. One of bookshelves packed with entire(?) collection of National Geography magazines but not that you can read in the dark. The upstairs is where you can dance also again in the much darkness. I found this place nothing wrong perfect in a sense that maybe too much to offer but it is a perfect back-up for any nights that you feel like something went wrong so you need to feel better. The below is why. 1. You get in no prob. Just don't get confused to stay in line for 1Oak around the corner, then you will never get in. 2. The main area with Xmas trees and glass ceiling or any bar area downstairs feel like outside/ski resort not being cold/hot and give you some breather from your elbow tackling NYC bar scene. then, If you want that back, go upstairs to the dance floor. 3. You don't need to leave the place if you spot someone you don't like there. You have a plenty of space to run and hide. 4. No one asks you for table charge and no drink minimums with better than average drinks. P.S. No picnic basket and blanket required to get in. Nor need to cover your drinks in brown bags.

I've been here several times and it's always been unpretentious, lots of amazing music, and a fun crowd. It's a no-fail place for a good time, which is why it's very aptly named "The Endup" - it's a great place to end up! Although there is a hefty cover charge of $20, once inside the drinks are cheap, there's plenty of seating to rest your weary dancing shoes, and there are arcade games and pool tables to amuse you as well. Did I mention it's open till 11am? Most recently I was here from 1am - 3am, went back to my hotel to take a nap, came back at 8:30am (woo hoo - they were serving drinks again) and stayed till closing playing pinball and listening to world class electronic music. I was pretty f'ed up, but it was an amazing time. Highly Recommended.
