Still Going Strong! – I've been going to Glass regularly since they opened six years ago. Let me lay to rest some of the negative reviews on this site. First, Glass is NOT a gay bar. They welcome everyone, which may explain why one guest walked in and saw a bunch of gay guys one night. They would never say no to a group because of sexual orientation. Second, Glass is like a family. The owner stands at the door, welcoming guests and making sure that their experience is pleasant--unlike most other doormen in the City. The staff are friendly and the drinks are reasonable. They use real liquor in their well drinks, not the $5-a-bottle junk you'll pay 15 bucks for in another club. Lastly, the design is amazing and they have a garden in the back where smokers can chill all night. Give Glass a try, you won't regret it!
saved my birthday celebration – after being disappointed from 3 another near by locations...you could here the music from outside.
bouncer was great not rude at all...cover fee was great! if you are just looking for a small cozy place to just dance and enjoy great music....highly recommended
Screw Marquee and go to Glass! – The first time I ventured to the wonder that is Glass, my girls and I had been partying at Marquee until it turned into a zoo when Paris & Nicky Hilton arrived and sat in VIP (speaking of which, isn't the point of VIP to be tucked into a conspicuous, closed off area in which the "unworthy" will not be allowed pass?). We promptly left and randomly walked into Glass and the rest is history. I don't even go to Marquee anymore b/c of the masses of silly, pretentious people. I can no longer count the amount of times that I have been to Glass and each time I have gone, I kid you not, I have had some ridiculous night of debauchery not only w/ my friends, but w/ random people I have met there. If you're looking for a place w/ yummy cocktails, friendly staff, good looking people (i.e. men, although the ladies represent as well), and tunes that make everyone get out of their seats and gyrate on the dancefloor... well then, this is your place!
Watered Down Drinks.. – Went here for a birthday. The $10 cover was OK, bc they gave a drink ticket. However the drinks were EXTREMELY watered down. Good music, no guys. Single girls dont waste your time.
It's a Gay Bar... – Trendy....but it's $10 to get in with a free drink (which by the way is watered down) AND it's a gay bar...I wish they would of told us that before we went in...Ladies...if you want a man, don't go...
If you are looking for stuck up prejudiced doormen, then this is the place for you. – My sis-in-law & a close friend decided to check out Glass last night after hoping from a few other spots last night in celebration of her b-day. So after coming from a lounge right around the corner from Glass we got on their line to pay our admission to get in. At first glance I realized the 3 of us stuck out considerably in the line as most of the potential party-goers were either not from NY or of a Paris Hilton type. Us being more of an ethnic mix & straight from the island of Manhattan. Now that's a non-issue b/c we don't mind partying w/ anyone so long as everyone has fun. Unfortunately for us, it did seem to matter to the main doorman.
Long story short we wait for about 10 mins b/f we're at the front of the line. While there I witnessed the interaction b/t 2 different parties looking to get into the club- which was the catalyst for why I write this review. The first group were 3 Caucasian guys from Canada- I know this because the main doorman asked these guys their life story b/f letting them in. He told them they would have to pay $10 & would get some free drinks inside. At no point did he ask them what guest list they were on. The next person on the line was an Asian woman. The asst doorman asks her if she is on a guestlist- she says no. They let her in. Then to our little 3-man group- now all of us are over 21 yrs of age w/ valid IDs, & all 3 of us were dressed. The main doorman (Fernando) goes on to look my male friend up/down (the lone black face in the whole crowd) & proceeds to tell us it's strictly guest list. This is after he just let in 4 ppl who were on NO guest list, but who were obviously of a "higher element" that we must have been perceived as. I could have stayed & argued what he was doing was border-line illegal, but we decided to go to another hot-spot nearby & had fun anyhow. But I'll make sure to turn everyone I know off from going to Glass.
Trendy place with great music. Fun atmosphere. – I always have a great time at Glass. I recommend it any time that it is open. Music is good.
Glass Sparkles – I've loved this place since it opened. The door staff is friendly, the crowd is gorgeous, and the peach martinis are AWESOME! The wait staff and bartenders are really sweet (love the shirts they wear, wish they'd sell them), and we all had a GREAT time here. And I still get a kick out of the two way mirror in the rest room :)
Great place for great times – Found this little hotspot after going through a Hell of a nightmare with the over rated "BED" (DON'T go there). $10 cover that includes a drink ticket, reasonably priced drinks and pretzels on the bar - a place to sit for everyone, great decor, outdoor smoking section is fun as well.
AWESOME! – I had a great time at Glass this past weekend! The management is great, the service is wonderful and the drinks are priced well. The music is awesome and I enjoyed shaking my moneymaker all nite long! I would go back in a heartbeat! The staff was friendly and the service was great!
