My Studio is definitely one of my favorite clubs in Hollywood. Yes, the line can be a pain in the ass, but that should be the case with any really good club. You have to know the right people to skip any part of the line, and just a promoter will usually not be enough. The decor inside is very nice -- very chic and beautiful. It's small enough to be cozy, but big enough to not make you feel claustrophobic. The booths/tables are very comfortable, the people are usually very good-looking, the bouncers/bartenders really great if you talk to them.

I came here for my company's holiday party so my review is based on that premise. The service was top notch. The decor is trendy and it's basically awesome. Check out the website if you're interested. The views are pretty breath taking. You're on the 18th floor on the standard hotel and you pretty much have a view of the entire city from that perspective. I wouldn't want to be on line here on the weekend as I'm sure I won't be able to get in. Having that said, this didn't happen just yet, and I'm in at supposedly the hottest joint in the city so I guess I'll update my review when I'm denied entrance!

OK, so I'm from Indianapolis which is a FAR cry from NYC and anything remotely resembling the likes of Tao. I also pronounced it tay-o much to my friends' delight at making fun of the midwestern, hick chick. Fine, fine...I'm not sure how to say it. I didn't even KNOW what kind of restaurant it was. I didn't check out the menu beforehand and I trusted my girlfriends to take me somewhere cool and fun. They did just that!! We scored a great table on the top level overlooking the buddha and other diners. I love the dark/mysterious feel going on and I thought our server was AWESOME. He was fast, polite and helpful. He was patient with this hickster and always kept my water glass full (a true sign of a decent server!). For NYC, I did have great expectations, b/c well, it is ALL about the food (hello, new season of Top Chef and enough restaurants that one could eat three meals a day for like five years and never repeat a meal). I don't consider myself that much of a foodie, b/c ...I live in Chain City USA, so I definitely wanted something unique and something I couldn't get in Indy, which is fairly easy :). In any case, I got the sea bass and stirred fried veggies. I also ordered a specialty martini (I believe it was raspberry but I can't remember now). What I do remember? That I loved everything!! I thought it was great and I would recommend this especially for a midwest tourist looking for something out of character. There is just nothing like this where I live. The atmosphere, the size of the restaurant, the food, everything was unique in my book! I definitely think it's worth checking out, but make a reservation and definitely budget for a more expensive meal. But, hello! You are in NYC...everything is a bit overpriced compared to hickville, Indiana. :)
