This place earns 1 star for great live music, always a fantastic show ... why then when I rate this joint with a solo star do I continue to come back each time I am in New York???? Why? I'll tell you why --- I think I have this fascination at my age with being young again cause the last 3 times I have been to this place I have been given the boot for arguing with the staff over the bill! So there is a badge of honour thing going on with this place in my book. Last visit, dbl gin tonic = $22??? For shelf booze?? This was discovered after I had ordered 6 of em? Certainly suggest you pay as you go because if you don't that open tab is going to get abused by shady staff!

Anytime someone mentions velvet room, it makes me wanna dry-heave. To be honest, I've never actually been inside because the bouncers were such douche bags to our friend. He was wearing a t-shirt, a very expensive t-shirt, I might add with very awesome everything else. But the bouncers felt that they were just sooooo classy that they couldn't let him in (so of course, we weren't gonna just leave him outside). Come on, guys! First of all, let me remind you, you're in a ghetto parking lot NEXT TO A FREAKING BIG LOTS...oh yeah, real classy. Just in case your patrons forgot to eat dinner, you've conveniently situated yourself next to a Big Lots where they can pick up a can of pork 'n' beans and RC cola on their way in. Great. Beggars can't be choosers, you losers. Second, I think any relatively hot chick in the group should be able to negate whatever "shortfalls" the first guy has. So give him a break, you thugs. Oh, and any club that has to artificially inflate the lines outside by keeping customers miserable in the cold and rain to make it look cool obviously has a little problem with their self esteem, hmmmm?? What a load of crap.
