I went to Pacha in New York City about 2 weeks ago. I didn't have high expectations because my friend invited me and I honestly didn't know who Hardwell was. But I defiantly didn't expect to spend my night being pushed around and practically trampled on all night. It was clear that the tickets were very much oversold, due to the lack of space and the fact that the security had to guard the doorways to the bottom floor where Hardwell was playing. Security still wouldn't tell us why we were not allowed downstairs-where the real concert was. They continued to give us different directions and seemed like they had no idea what to do with the hundreds of kids that were trying to force their way down the stairs. After trying to figure out what going on for 2 hours, I finally decided to give up and leave. I cannot fathom the fact that they would not put a limit to the amount of tickets sold to the number one DJ of 2013. I was so shocked of the circumstances I called the police right after warning them of Pacha's very dangerous fire hazard.
DO NOT GO
I am extremely dissapointed at PACHA NYC. My daughter and her friends were excorted out of the club falsely accused when it was her birthday. Warning to all those whom attend this nightclub. . . You WILL be thrown out when someone trys to hand over their drugs & you don't take them. They WILL discriminate against you for being a minority if the one trying to hand you the drugs is Caucasian. I'm not recommending anyone of my friends to attend your establishment. Noone should take a chance at this injust establishment. Security even refused to give my daughter their name. I left a voicemail for someone in charge to return my call. I will resort to every method to make sure this is cleared up & that this NEVER happens to anyone else. And just so you know you will catch the REAL person at fault cause he felt so protected by you guys when he spoke to you that he WILL do it again.
It was so disappointing. I had been here before for a private event but tonight was beyond ridiculous. I came to see DJ r3hab specifically and when i got separated from my friends I walked around trying to find them. SUDDENLY a bouncer GRABBED my arm saying the manager said he Saw me passing drinks. I DID NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANT. Then he said that meant buying drinks for people under 21. Everyone I was with was 25+. I was soooo upset because I did not even get to see r3hab. they pulled me outside in the cold without a jacket on and said they saw me passing drinks meanwhile I had not bought a drink for over an hour and a half. I waited outside the club for another hours and called the receptionist asking to speak to a manager. I have never been pulled aside like that for SOMETHING I DID NOT DO. I am so disappointed by this especially since i did not event get to see the dj I specifically came out for. 0 stars. I hate how terrible your management and staff is.
pacha may not be what it used to be, back when we woke up sunday morning n showered and then went to the basement, but you cant deny that its still the best club around!!! okok you may not stumble out at 3 pm anymore, but its still ALWAYS a good time. yeaaaa its pretty expensive with drinks but its not unheard of. megan, dina, n shannon are the bartenders to go see!!!!!!!!!
blahhh!!! – Ehhh not so good there was a bunch of skeezy hood rats around and I did not get a good vibe from here at all. On the other hand the drinks were ok and the service was blah. I shall not return.
I did enjoy my night out over there; music was fine, the service and drinks were not bad at all. Really nice atmosphere. We were a bit skeptical regarding the door policy though..the first time we went there the line was huge, it took us almost an hour to get into the club. The second time we were 9people and we booked a Limo night out package for like $160 , for 1h limo tour and admission in the club skipping the line (limotournyc) that was a pretty good deal! Anyway I’ll definitely go back there!
Worst Club In NYC – Had VIP Table service, except no service. Only saw our waitress once over 5 hours. The bar back did all the work. Management was awful and they apparently never talked to our waitress after we worked out the situation with 2 of them. Way overcrowded. They blocked access to the floors at times. We were on the top floor, went downstairs and were not allowed back to top floor where we had paid for a table, but we snuck by the dumb bouncers and got up there after all.
I DO NOT recommend.
Was Assaulted, Their Security did NOTHING! – I was Assaulted on Halloween of this year, by two other patrons and when I went to report it to their security, they did nothing, they did not give any effort to find them, the two guys were not even wearing Masks, and I gave great description of the Perps and what costumes they were wearing. I was punched several times by two of them and I received several bruises and a broken tooth as well as lost a TapOUT shoe and Bad BOY cap, by trying to run away from them. I was not able to defend myself because there were two of them, and they were much bigger than me. While I was getting hit several times, I ran to the Bar to seek help and even the Bar Maid did not even help, as I was screaming for help. Finally, when I got to the Security outside,in back of the club; because none of them were there when I was getting assaulted on the dance floor or near the bar, they finally attended to me.
When I requested the security to call the cops they did not, they claimed they will handle it, and I requested several times to call them and they did not call them, I was however seen by their EMT person, (given a Band-Aid and some ICE, "Big Whop" although he was Very Helpful and Attentive, "they should have called an Ambulance", but after that , the security people encouraged me to go home because they just did not want to help me, or do any effort to find them.There answer was "It is a Crazy Night" I wanted to say "That's Your Answer for trying to find them? REALLY? Unbelievable! I now have a Scar above my nose and I had to get an Extensive Root Canal and a Crown for my front tooth, I am very upset by this!
When I went back to the club later that night (4:30 AM, because I heard they are open till 7 AM), to speak to the one of the managers, of which did not help, to ask if they found my hat and shoe, (Lost & Found Dept) and to see the status of my complaint , they were closing, one of their junior security people said in a SARCASTIC Manner, "We did not find a TapOUT shoe, Your HAT or a Broken Tooth" When I spoke with a Police Officer the next day to file a complaint, they claimed that This Club is known for drugs and other types of misbehavings and that "they" (CLUB) do not like when We go there because there is always problems. When I went to Community Board 4 to see if there are complaints about them, I had found various articles and complaints on file about this club, including the New York Post Online Edition. The hotel I stayed at said "That club is known for problems" and when I ran into another patron at the hotel who over heard my conversation He said the Friday before, there were several fights and problems. When I tell people what happened, to me, their response is " What do you expect, many people are high on drugs there, it is known for drugs and problems."This club is "Today's" SoundFactory; (Ironically same location) & Limelight which was known for drugs and problems that closed them down!
All in ALL, I LIKED going there, music was great, DJ''S were great, Until I was Assaulted!
