Lose the cover charge! – I absolutely hate paying a cover charge to go to a place this size to hear house music. I've always had a good time here, though, so it's a shame because I would come here more often if I didn't have to shell out the bucks at the door.
NOT ALL THAT – NOT worth the cover charge!! Okay the place is honestly the size of an average size NYC bar. The music is okay but there is not even a dance floor! If you are looking for something like Exit or Soundfactory this is NOT your place. Its basically just a small lounge with house music, so why pay 20 bucks to walk in?!!!
A pumping subterranean joint for late-night dancing and fast, hard drinks. – The Scene
Not exactly home to the uber-glam model set, this basement-level club attracts a mostly white and straight crowd with a boisterous party attitude. Persian carpets, velvet couches and an excellent sound system warm up the main room, where almost every table is marked "reserved"--though anyone is welcome to take a seat if the club hasn't completely filled up. An energetic bar staff makes it easy to get a stiff drink.
House music dominates every night, pulling all the girls in clicky high heels to the dance floor with their hands in the air. In the closed-door and velvet-roped VIP rooms, odd mismatched couches lead to a bathroom reminiscent of the Bates Motel. Surely, you will not bump into Chloe Sevigny or the Hilton sisters at the Sullivan Room, but that shouldn't prevent you from getting your groove on.
I agree – all they need are some hotdog buns to get a bbq going... there were so many guys, geez can't believe i paid $20 to see a meat fest, some hot girls, but a lot of guys
sometimes good--but you'll pay for it – been here saturdays which were great, but the $20 cover for a single room lounge in a basement seemed extreme. $9 and $10 drinks were a bit pricey as well. the music was house and techno. i heard mondays were good techno as well, but i went and i was the only person in the room. i guess that party is over.
hot spot – Sullivan is one my favorite spots in nyc. this place has a great atmosphere, just enough bar, lounge and club mixed into one great venue for drinking, dancing and mingling. The music here is pretty cutting edge house, and they book some solid dj's. I definitely recommend checking this place out on Saturday nights late-nite, but get some drinks into you before you get here there and be ready to move to the smooth, hypnotic beats!
stereo – don't go to this bar to talk. go to this bar to dance.
Would I go back? – I'm just not sure. First of all, there was a ten dollar cover which wouldn't have been a big deal had the beer I ordered wasn't SEVEN DOLLARS. I mean, cool club, but what do you think you are? The Hudson Hotel? Please.....
Music was cool... atmosphere was definitely nice. There was this poor waitress that was just pissed off because she had to drag drinks from the bar, across the dance floor to people in the lounge areas. It sucked for people dancing too because the frequency was noticable and irritating. Ditch the waitress.
Gr3aT MuSiK – I was @ Sullivan Room last saturday .... the place was crowded. The frequenters were pretty decent young people. The only thing i did not like was the Long-Island-Ice-Tea i had; which tasted awful. The music was just great ... Overall dancing is what i went there for,therefore in that matter i was totally satisfied. I'll go back there, only if i've already had some drinks elsewhere.
good energy – I had a great time with my friends at sullivan room. Music was excellent! Good looking crowd and great atmosphere. Friday night is the best night. Nice place to go dancing.
