Go Elsewhere!!!! – I have been to Strata twice and both times I was unimpressed, more like disgusted by the place. I went the first time a few years ago for a friend's birthday and, though the music was good, I thought that the crowd left much to be desired. I went again last night, for another birthday party, and was simply awed at the low class people, service and ambience at this place. We were on a guest list and after we gave our names and got some tickets, we still had to pay a $20 cover charge. The people there were absolutely unclassy and rude. There was even a fight , apparently a guy hadn't paid his child support and the girl caught him out!! I mean COME ON!!!!!!! I am not one of those upper east side snobs, however, the people that go to this place seem a bit too street and dangerous for my taste. Anyhow, my recommendation is: if you are looking for a good time where you don't want to be afraid of a shoot out at any second, stay away from this place!!!
What's worse than Terrible? – I've been to a lot of parties as well as hosted a lot of parties in Manhattan. Never found a reason to write up a negative compaint about a venue. Went here this past Saturday for a friend's birthday party. What a cheap excuse for a club! The bouncers were rude and disrespectful. The club itself is sectioned off into two rooms, and my friend's tables were in the room where every other table was roped off for "VIP", which I don't even know what that means, seeing as how my friend paid a lot of money to reserve his tables. They only played music on one side of the club, the crowd was pretentious, and drinks were absurdley priced. Our Long Islands tasted more like Nestea than anything. We had a guestlist that was supposed to allow guys in at reduced admission until midnight. A few guy friends of our came at 11:40 and was asked to pay full cover! Just plain terrible all around.
GOOD MUSIC...HOT GIRLS....BEST BARTENDERS IN NYC.. – I had heard STRATA,has one of the longest running saturday nite partys in NYC.I decided to check it out
with some of my friends.We got there early...12:00 AM,the place was half empty.At 2:00 AM the place was packed and jammin...The music was pretty good,the women were hot but the best thing about the place were the drinks....man the bartender that served us allnite sure knows how to make a drink...I read the previous revue andthe person was complaing about spending 25 dollars...Its 2008 ...everthing is exspensive in NYC....if you dont have 25 bucks to spend maybe you should stay at home and buy a 40..
I had a great time and would recommend a saturday nite at STRATA to any one looking to have a great time on a saturday nite......
Horrible spot – I had the feeling I was at a high school gym party.
Very hood for the website to be so upscale and "professional"
The staff their was HORRIBLE....... You treat everyone like the hood and thats when they will act like the hood.
I am about to call the GM and maybe pitch in some reccomendations.
This is by far the worst club in NYC/ SC/ ATL/ NC I have been.
Once again the staff was very unprofessional!
This place isn't the place to go if you want to meet classy and good looking people. – A co-worker had a little get together with some of his friend at this place. Although there was a guest list and were told the place would be open at 10:00 when we got there we had to stand in line for almost an hour even our co-work who book it had to wait outside on line in the cold. Finally, after an hour they began to let people in. While we were standing on line there was a group of guys who were dress in street clothes were allowed to go in. (and they said this place had class, yeah ok) We finally got inside it was practically empty and every where was roped off for VIP. Eventhough, there was no VIP guest. No one is allow upstairs because it for VIP and they even roped off a section of the downstairs. What a joke. You are only allowed upstairs if you are checking in your coat which we didn't do. My friend and I decided to get a drink. I went to get us some drink two white Russians and the bartender told us he didn't have cream. I then ordered another drink and the price was outrageous I ended up almost spending 25 dollars on two drinks that was really watered down. Don't get me wrong we know drink are expensive in New York and my friends and i aren't cheap my all mean we make good money but you should of to pay outrageous prices for water down drinks. My co-worker finally got a table because he bought a bottle. We got to the table and a fews hours later people we didn't know started sitting at our table which was ok with us but they didn't even ask. Then two kid and play wanna be came in and started dancing which was fun until two skanks join them and started acting like the skanks they are. Me and my friend decided to go some where else where we had a better time. If you are looking to have a good time stay way, but if you like low class and skanks by all mean go and enjoy. The music was good and the place had a nice ambiance, but we could do without the low life running around in that place.
Cool Place – I went with a bunch of people to strata on Saturday and actually had a good time!! I was a little scared in going because of all the reviews that I read at citysearch. The music was good. I didn't like the fact that they didn't play alot of latin music but I see why (different cultures and ethnics). The drinks were a bit expensive and there werent any good deals in regards to purchasing bottles. I also saw a giant insect in the ladies bathroom..pretty gross! I have to admit though that I had a good time. I probably would go back again.
A must go to ;) – Awesome music and really nice staff. Not the usual hassle for a large club. It was easy to get in and start partying! Great experience that I highly recommend.
Great dance spot – I?ve been to Strata on a couple of occasions and I can say that it is one of my favorite dance spots. Saturday nights are it if you are looking for great dancing. My girlfriends and I love it. Both current and old school music is thrown at you and you are always surprised with that track you used to love back in the day. Hip hop, R&B, reggae, reggeaton, and even salsa and merengue go down on the weekends. The drinks are good, not watered down at all, and the staff is not obnoxious. There is always a long line, so either get there a bit early or expect to stand there over 20mins. It?s a big place and even though it gets packed, it doesn?t feel like you can?t breathe. If you want to get a table at the VIP area it?s cool, but you?ll probably end up coming down to the dance floor where it all goes down. I really don?t know why certain people have had bad experiences there, but I can only speak for mine. By the way guys, we girls appreciate the dress code since we dress to impress and expect the same. So, if you are looking for a hot place to see hot people and dance to hot music, Strata it is.
What at great time!!! – I went to Strata on a Saturday night to celebrate my friends birthday and had a unforgetable time. We were on Eric Virgils guest list and they took care of us right away. The venue was beautiful and had a great sound system. The DJ was phenominal and the crowd was spectacular. The women were very seductive and appealing. The door staff was very professional and curtious. The wait staff also made sure we were being well taken care of when we reserved our table. I would definitely reccomend Strata to others.
Partygoers beware! – me and my girlsfreinds went here on saturday and got push around. there were fights everywhere. i was promised by one of the main promoters Eric Virgil i would get in free and not have to wait on the long line. When I got to the line after waitng a long time the door guy was very disrepectful to me and my freind. I think his name was dave. what a A HOLE!!! he must hate is life. then when we ask the door girl for our tickets she tells us its $20. WTF!!!!! then she gives us attitude and does not hear us out. what a lil B*tch. then we get yell by some big fat , big headed short bouncer. Look we are leadies and do not deserve to be yelled at by fatso. What a horrible experience . we havent even set foot in the club yet!!!! Party Goers beware. ERIC VIRGIL is MthaFKER! his partys are wack and dangerous. We were treated horrible, the staff is mean and harrashing. This club is not worth it and the drinks are too exspensive and weak. take the party somewhere else. Maybe blvd> Sorry for the blast but you need to treat the ladies right and clean up your staff especaily fatso bouncer!!!!!
