I'm 22, and go to plenty of clubs around New York because most of my friends live in the city NEVER COME HERE. Went twice (thought I would give it one more chance), second time was for new years. It is the worst club in New York!!!! And I will list why. 1. Bouncers are F**** A*****. 2. Smallest club without room to even move in. There's 3 floors in the entire small place. - Top floor your are not allowed in. - Bottom floor in back, you are not allowed in. - Smallest of the floors, and in the front where it's crowded as can be, ... not a place you would ever want to be allowed in... 3. If you like to dance? Too bad no dance floor. 4. Even spoke to the manager, and he actually told me to f*** off. Reason being, I had spent 200 per person with friends for a table, and they gave us a table with about 3 seats. We had 8 people. The biggest rip off I have ever been dealt. 5. Saw a guy standing in line for the bathroom, for no reason WHAT SO EVER, he was grabbed by the neck, put in to a strangle hold. and dragged out of the club. Even if there was a reason, it shouldnt have been like that. This place should be sued. 6. Bathroom was absolutely grotesque, with maybe the meanest bathroom attendant in existance, who just sits there doesnt give you a towel to dry your hands and Actually demands a tip!!! and if you do give him a tip? He asks why you didn't give him more. Anyways this place needs to be put out of existance. I dont recommend going to this place ever in your life. Avoid like the plague. That is all

The pictures of Eden seem really cool with all the white furniture, drapery, and iridescent lighting, but looks can definitely be deceiving. The club is really trying hard to portray something they are not... which I will get into later. There's two different levels or areas within the venue. I've had the opportunity to experience both. The bigger area with a large bar in the middle and all the beds off to the side is cool but the really "street" looking brick walls indoors against the pure white furniture just isn't working and neither are the plastic leaves glued to the walls. The smaller area is actually much more appealing to be in. Unfortunately, with all this space... they really don't manage to fill the venue even to half capacity! I think the problem is their music.... They had a 40 something guy DJing, playing REALLY OLDDD Tracks.... I mean like top 40 from the 90s... and that was pretty much it. I just felt like I was stuck in a time warp. I'm not trying to be ageist or anything, because there's some really awesome older DJs out there, but this guy wasn't one of them. This place has some real possibilities but they need to do some real good promotions and get some new DJs playing some hot beatz from today!

A bar that open at 6 AM, you say? God willing, I'll never live to see 6 AM again, so I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader. But a 9 AM scotch on the way to work? That I'd like to try, and I've got plenty of rationalizations: 1) Work before liquor, wish it'd end quicker. Liquor before work, greet your boss with a smirk. 2) As Mr Osato would say, it adds a sparkle to the day. After all, you only live once (or was it twice?) 3) I had to prove that I could make it through one morning without caffeine. Now I wasn't sure whether a weekday morning in a bar would be cheery or scary. Turns out it's a bit of both; there's some sassy locals who treat the place like their coffee shop, but there's also a dude passed out on the bar and another one mumbling incoherently at me the whole time. At least they took me in stride. And for a notorious dive, the layout is actually pretty classy (I found Dovre Club to be far shoddier): red walls in the main room, green walls in the pool room, and I'm seriously digging that circular bar. Plus James Cagney movies on the TV. Who needs Starbucks?
