come here if you want some international flava! this place does not discriminate! it's a mix of "so you think you can dance?" "american bandstand," "dancing with the stars," "the george lopez show," "joy luck club," "bollywood," "jungle fever" all mixed together. you'll know what i mean if you've been there or go there. this place was a whole new world to me since it was my first time salsa dancing. i've never seen anything like it. people were having a great time whether they were a beginner, advanced, old, young, tall, short, you name it. again, this place does not discriminate! $15 cover on sat nights. there was a live band and the songs are a bit long, especially if you're not feeling your dancing partner. but if you come, put on your dancing shoes and get ready to salsa, merengue, and cha cha cha!

This place is in The Meat Packing District, so it's like, OKAY, I SHOULD HAVE ANTICIPATED MOST OF THE THINGS THAT BOTHERED ME. Having said that, here are the things I did not like about Hiro. 1) We had a birthday party, called in advance, and told them the number of people to be coming. When we arrived, they had our party listed, but then proceeded to tell us that only 4 guys in th party could get in. How many guys were with us? About 12. 2) We got there at 10 PM when it was just opening, and although most of our guys could not go in, (only the ones dying to be at Hiro went in), I decided to go in for a little while, and then meet up with the outcasts later. So I went in, and the place is huge, and looks pretty cool, and yet we were the only party in there. So why couldn't the rest of our guys come in? I don't know, maybe because the bouncers wanted to exercise their powers over admission into the night club becuase that is there only means of feeling important in their lives. 3) Then I went to the bar to get a drink. Now I've had this happen at most night clubs, and it truly infuriates me, but I was hoping for the best. I ordered Baccardi and Diet Coke. This has been my staple drink for 5 years. I know what it tastes like. And true to form, they charged me the Premium price ($11.00). I took a sip, and wanted to vomit. Low and behold, they gave me rum that tasted like rat puke but charged me the price of a call. Awesome. This is when I went and met up with the outcasts and proceeded to have a great night anyway. So if you can handle any one of those situations I discussed above without getting infuriated, you will probably have a fine time at Hiro.
