    The whole experience is incredible! You have to see a show here. It is a unique theatrical experience from the moment you check-in for the night. The food was delish, the service was great and the show was incredible! There are sooooooo many talent people in that show! I felt like I was in a super exclusive club and got a real 70's disco vibe, but way cooler. If you don't experience this you will regret it.

    Saw The Hot Sardines Saturday night. Was a fabulous concert and what a great place to spend an evening. Food and service were fab as well. Would love to go back!

    Decent venue! In terms of decor it's really beautiful and nicely laid out. Ornamentation is cool, nice big venue with an upper gallery, bar upstairs and downstairs.

    Down side: coat check at 5$ per coat, that's a little expensive. Beer at 15$, that's a lot expensive. Getting into the venue went relatively smoothly, but security guards were intense and a bit rude.

    We got to see Luke at this historic venue in February. It is a great place to see a concert as there isn't a bad seat in the place. It was also convenient to have concessions and bathrooms on each floor.

    I really enjoyed Babymetal at Terminal 5. It was a great show and the performers pulled it off flawlessly. I do find fault with the sound engineers. For the last 3 songs of their set there was a thudding sound. Pretty sure a mic had gone loose on the drum set and was making a racket.
    When I have played in bands, or done sound engineering myself, that is something that you fix. You don't leave it alone because the show is almost over. Have some integrity!

    Always a good time! Drinks were decent & the very young 20-30-ish crowd increased to a manageable size after 10. The sound system, however, was problematic at first, but the DJ eventually worked it out. As for the pool table, it would help if it was properly balanced so it didn't have to be tipped to retrieve balls & moved all the way to the back so that we could shoot pool all night.

    I was looking for a place to dance bachata and salsa and so happy I've found this place. There were many really good salsa dancers, totally enjoyed that night.

    Absolutely loved this place. Visiting from the UK. The staff are really friendly and the drinks are the cheapest we have found. $8 for two vodkas and mixers. The music is good and the atmosphere is really good. Thank you.

    Off the beaten path, big rooms, BYOB (but there's a service charge). The system is easy to use which isn't true of every spot in the city. And they let you order outside food. Also have a happy hour special during week where karaoke is half price.

    Wasn’t happy hour when we arrived so got two bottles of Stella, staff seemed chatty when we arrived. We came for the rooftop bar but as was raining it was closed which is fair enough, except it was empty and the lighting was all red which felt seedy and there were fake palm trees everywhere which was odd. Also we weren’t allowed to access WiFi, even when we asked staff which seemed odd nowadays. Overall nice enough and music was great!

    Having been in party scene in NYC for last few years, I have been to Cielo many times. The dance floor is on the smaller side and on most days their DJ lineup is decent and nothing very special. Tables could range from 350 to 500 that are away from the dance floors and 1000+ that are right on the dance floor. Usually they have a 30 dollar entry fee as a general entry. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Crowd is mostly young including students, young professionals and tourists who like to party. Overall, it is a mid-range club and provides a good value for the price point.

    There are hundreds of great chance clubs in NYC so it's hard to talk about just one, but if you find yourself near Chinatown, NYC after 2am, head over to Le Baron to dance. My nephew took my sister and me a few weeks ago and at first I thought is was small, but once we were past the friendly doorman and through the narrow hall to the main floor, I could feel the thumping expansiveness. A quick trip to the lower level was another vibe-smaller and less crowded, but friendly dancers were there. On the upper mezzanine level was the best spot to see the crowds of dancers, feel the beats, witness the table service-it was soooo much fun! NO cover the night we went-visit their website to see who is DJing.
    There was a line to get in at 4:30am and there were plenty of taxi available when we left. Try it!
    You cannot get near the place, though during fashion week-like so many other clubs, so keep that in mind.

    Went here on a Saturday night with a bunch of friends. Entry was easy and no long lines, and not super crowded inside too. Just perfect. The drinks were average and the music was good

    I'm almost hesitant to write a review, hoping that this place stays under-the-radar. My wife and I visited several weeks ago, showed up about 10:30 and there was a short line. We had plans to do other things that night, but ended up trapped by the strong drinks, great DJ and funky-soul groove. The place was crowded and I loved the fact that everyone was there to dance. Not pretentious, just fun!
