Best Spot in Queens! – Besides having been here multiple times already myself, I recently convinced my parents into having my brother's 3rd b'day at Play. everyone, and I mean EVERYONE had a great time. The kids were running around everywhere with the ample amount of space, from the pool tables, to air hockey, to the ping pong tables, to the bowling alley and the best part of all the Mechanical Bull! The adults and the kids were all enjoying the party and the awesome activities this place has to offer. We've never had or been to a more successful party. Play is def the way to go for all types of events as well as enjoying the night out w/ some friends on the wkends!
Good times – I've been here a couple of times on different days because I'm always hearing of the different events they have to offer, mondays they have the best deal you won't get this deal anywhere else that's for sure! I believe from 8-1am you get a 5 hour open bar along with free bowling or pool all for about 25 dollars! And on thursdays its ladies nights which is always poppin haven't been there during the weekend yet but dnt see how it cldnt be better since its hot during the weekdays? Music is diverse hip hop,house,spanish, the food is good especially they're bbq wings!!! And the girls that work there seem to be pretty friendly and on top of they're game.
Do not go there – You can not apply the dress code to some and do not apply to others. I will never be returning to play. The bouncer are arrogant and racist with the management not being much better. I payed for bottle service and was still treated like a piece of trash. The short Hispanic man who was at the door was no better then the tall bouncer who called me a bitch. I ordered food and it took an hour for it to arrive. My frustration with play is the not the overpriced food or the frozen food its the arrogance of the management and staff, especially the bouncers. If you care to see racial profiling them be my guest and go to play but if not do yourself a favor and avoid it.
cheats got ripped – Please do not visit this place ever they are cheats literally. They sell discount coupons and say VISIT ANYTIME to bowl, play ping pong. But when you show up there they say they have rented it out to a private party and you should have called. No where have they mentioned about calling and booking in advance. SO basically they say you come at our convenience. People there are rude. SO it was like I payed and they rented it out and made profits and also were rude to me. I got ripped do not go here ever
AWFUL – NEVER again...$3 mandatory coat check, rude servers and hosts. The place was dead. Drinks were expensive. $21.50 for half-an-hour of pingpong, no exaggeration. As I was leaving, the bouncer handed me a flyer for another night. I said "no thank you" and he cursed me out until I was all the way down the block. Real classy. If you're looking for a lounge, it's worth another 10 minutes to go into the city.
When I went to play I had a good time it was for a friends b – If you haven't been to play then u definately played yourself 4 real its definately poppin up in there so next time you wanna party don't forget play you already no
LOTS OF FUN!! – This is one of the FEW places in Queens that you can actually spend an entire night at and not get bored. I was just there this past Saturday with my husband and some friends for the Pacquiao/Cotto boxing match and the vibe was awesome. The place was packed, there was so much energy and after the match was over, the DJ kept the energy alive by really kicking up the music. If you're used to the typical Queens bar, this place is not for you. It has more of a Manhattan feel without being pretentious.
SAY NO TO THE PLAY LOUNGE IN ELMHURST NY – I decided to celebrate my girlfreinds birthday at the Play Lounge. I thought it would be a great experience since I have been there once before and really enjoyed myself. We invited a couple of friends, but to my surprise every girl that was turned away looked like the stereotypical aggresive female even one that have been there several times before, they were given all types of excuses of why they were not allowed to enter the club from the wearing plain white shirts to their belt buckle(are you serious?). The spanish bouncer even lied and said that one of the girls that was allowed to come in cursed him out and was asked to leave which was a lie. If she cursed him out then why would he let her in. I have never experienced anything like this before in my life and what made it worse was the black bouncers was discriminating on their own. This has to stop. Please know that we are not stopping here, we're a reporting them to anyone that will listen, we are not bitter we know there are still ignorant people out there. I am going to make sure this never happens to anyone again.
If anyone has experienced any type of discrimination from the bouncers or anyone at this place please contact me at staceyaudrey@hotmai com. Discrimination of any kind should not be allowed. This is a form of hatred.
play wouldnt let me and my friends in for a small reunion pa – play is no good
Strong drinks, but, but watch your bill – 3 of use went there on a Saturday early-10pm, got a lounge area to ourselves. The atmosphere is great, music could be better, but drinks were strong-I'm still aliitle drunk after -8hrs so well worth the $10 a drink. They automatically include gratuity so pay close attention to your bill since they don't reund any card charges. Finding parking is hard, but in all I'd probably go again but with cash and ask for better music.
