Came in On Jan 1st when everyone's staying home and relax after a crazy party during NYE. No Signs outside , so it's a bit hard to find the place, but I'm pretty sure you'll find 2 TALL Bounders outside dressed UP with One tiny Asian dude (looking like sensei) who's the Manager in charge of who's coming in, who's not. WOW. So it was easy for us to get in and was not crowded and we were nice (heheehheeh). Didn't expect to see such a great performance: 1) T-R-A-N-S-V-E-S-T-Y doing everything what you can imagine (BRrRrRrRrRr) 2) Couple hot girls dancing (Like pussycat dolls) 3) French rapping, making all the sounds with his mouth (THAT WAS IMPRESSIVE), He did from Beyonce, to Lady Gaga, To David Guetta. Love the decor, not impressive about the drinks tho. Will come back again once in a blue moon to see what's new. But if you have to come at least ONE time to SEE IT ! This is what's good about NYC. ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS COMES FROM HERE!

For all you smokers out there who think they've been banished from Manhattan nightlife forever, fear not! Antik will be there to lead you to salvation! And for all you nonsmokers, there's something at Antik for you too! A pungent aroma of cigarette smoke that will saturate your clothes and hair for days to come! All joking aside, the smoke problem is horrible at this place and is the main reason I gave it two stars. It completely ruins the experience. Now just to clarify, I have been to clubs where people disregard the smoking ban and sneak a few cigs. But this place is ultra tiny, with no ventilation. There are some positives though. Since the place is so small, the door tends to be selective and keep a good crowd (smokers excluded) inside. Antik also has an exclusive feel to it with the retro speakeasy design and discreet entrance. The music has a pretty good mix depending on the dj. I also usually come with a promoter so drinks are free. And some nights are good for after hours, but don't go out of your way.
