    I really enjoy my night over here! Music is fantastic, the staff is a little rude, but I was totally fine I think that is because everybody get crazy in here.

    Very rude bouncer, and a very expansive cover charge (100$ pp) In addition, the security inside didn’t do much to stop harassments. They request from you to sign on the tip amount before you enter the party. And they want 5$ for each coat or umbrella. The prices inside are expansive regardless ($20 for a glass of wine). The bartender was really nice though and the music was good.

    My go to nightclub! I wish they would’ve expand this space more. The DJs are most of the time great, they would play great remix of songs after songs that makes you not want to leave!

    I will never go to this club in NY again. This club is VERY selective. I honestly felt they selected and chose (depending on race, gender, weight, body type, class, etc) who they would let into the club. I have never had this bad of an experience at a club ever in my life. I have traveled the world and been to multiple clubs in different countries. I went to Tao for dinner with friends and figured we'd go to the club right after. We got in line and the bouncer refused to let us in. We continuously kept asking why we couldn't be let in and he didn't give a reason why. He kept letting others in but not us. I finally asked another bouncer who seemed to be his manager. He asked me for a $400 bar tab and I agreed. This same bouncer came up to the "manager" explaining why I couldn't be let in. It came to a point where people in line started to notice the issue. A group of men invited us to their table and the bouncer continued to not include us in and told us even though we were technically on the "vip" list we couldn't go in. I have never been to this club ever in my life and I don't even know who this man was but he didn't want to let me in or my friends which was so frustrating because I couldn't think of a reason why. It's not like I was drunk and couldn't comprehend what was happening. I recorded half of our interaction because I truly feel what happened was so uncalled for and I don't believe this person working the doors should be in this industry. I was not a threat to the club in any which way shape or form. All I wanted to do was support the restaurant we went to prior and clearly that man did not want to make that happen. I am very serious about following up with management about this and a google review is just the first step.
