The most decadent and stylized of all New York nightclubs, The Box is equal parts erotic burlesque show, opium den, dance club, Absinthe parlor, and -- incongruously -- restaurant. It is awesome.

Please DO NOT waste your time or money! – I had heard nothing but bad things about The Box, but a couple of my friends were throwing a new Glam-Rock-N-Roll-Gay-straight-Tranny-indifferent Glitterfest this past Thursday night. Sounds fab, right?! Well, it was anything but. The venue lived up to, and far exceeded every horrid thing I had heard about it.

First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning inside, but the staff is downright ugly. A cocktail waitress was dancing in the aisle (instead of actually cocktailing) and bumped into me, spilling half of my $17 drink all over me. Yes, that's right - $17. She went to bump into me again and I held out my hand to keep her from knocking me over. She promptly spun around and physically grabbed me and screamed in my face, "Don't you put your f*cking hands on me!", then the other cocktail waitress jumps in and tells me, "You don't f*cking touch my waitress, I'm having you thrown out!". I then demanded to speak with a manager ASAP. He was OK, and said to forget about it and I was more than welcome to stay. Looking back, I should have slugged the witch, or called the cops.

Second, after that incident, a bouncer had roped off the walkway to the tables and was not going to let my friend and me go back to the table that we had been previously sitting at the entire night. We had to "prove" to him that we had actually been sitting there. I'm sorry, but I don't have to prove sh*t to you when we've purchased 5 drinks that cost a total of $86 dollars. That's before the generous tip we left. Nice.

Lastly, we were beyond fed up with the horrible treatment we received at this glorified whorehouse (they allow men in the Ladies Room and have benches over the toilets and foot rests to brace yourself against so you can have sex in the stalls. Classy & hygienic), so we decided to leave posthaste. We went upstairs to the VIP lounge that was set up for my friends who were hosting the party. Mind you, I was INVITED. I was stopped at the entrance by yet another bouncer with a power-tripping ego problem who told me "You can't come in here.". I told him my friends are throwing this party, I was invited, and I was on the list he was holding. Not to mention the fact that my friend was standing about 10 feet away. He then told me my friends were not allowed to have anymore guests come in. Um, yeah. I told the

bouncer I just wanted to tell my friends that I was leaving and say thank you to them for inviting me, that's all. His response to me was, "Then you can call or text him from outside to let him know you left." After asking him if he was naturally this rude or if he took a class in Assholery, he finally let me in.

Needless to say, my friends were extremely unhappy with this whole situation, as their friends and guests received terrible treatment, and they were treated like garbage as well. They packed the club to the rafters, brought an obscene amount of money into the club because they have a huge following, and were still treated like sh*t. They WILL NOT be doing their party at The Box ever again. And that makes me smile from ear to ear, because The Box just lost what would have been a huge cash cow for them. Haha!

All I can say is, 'Eff this joint.

Avoid! – ...Or you will be up for some miserable experience that begins with a rude doorman and continues with mediocre service and not so original show.

Fantabulous Venue for chillax – The Box was super cool from the moment you step in. There was not a dull moment for the whole duration.

To top your enjoyment, the box must have hired models

as their waitresses. The drop dead gorgeous Lauren was charming, perky, friendly and hospitable all at the same time. If you have a top 10 list of things you must do in your life time, experience at the Box is one of them.

Douchebag Doorman! – The doorman is a Douchebag! Firstly, there wasn't anyone in this place! It's completely way overrated the guy at the door wanted $1,000 plus he wanted us to pay for a bottle! The Box doesn't look like a fun place. Actually it's not a fun place. There were no people even around this area, it's was extremely sketchy! The doorman is a douchebag, and he is very desperate!. I would guess judging by the views below it's not worth the money! DO NOT GO TO THE BOX! If the owners were smart they would FIRE the doorman, and hire someone smarter! It's the worst club experience I've ever had in New York City, and I've been living in New York my whole life! The box is a piece of crap! Go anywhere except for The Box!!!

Avoid At All Costs – I ashamedly can say that I've been to The Box several times, but in all honesty, I was only there because there was open bar, and I don't know why I went back the second two times. The door guys are horribly rude and pay no attention to those in line, only letting in cute girls off the street who weren't waiting in line. Once inside, it's always cramped, the bartenders are slow and there is soooo much smoke in the air, you should get tested for emphysema afterwards. The place is a beautiful old theatre, but it's not conducive to talking or even having a good time. Big fail.

Way To Far – I loved The Box until this past weeks show. I'm fine with transgender BUT I don't need to see ANYONEstick a broomstick up it's you-know-what and that is exactly what happend this past week at The Box.

Can we say Very distasteful!? There are enough ways to get a crowd going that does not include a Tranny raping himself on stage. Please keep the Sexy NOT the Sex.....

Completely Disgusting – I use to go the The Box a lot in the past and unfortunately the show has completely gone down the drain. Not at all entertaining but now repulsing. They are completely going for shock value and its frankly just disgusting. My service was horrible to say the least and it was just poorly run from the moment we walked through the door. I do not recommend going there on a full stomach or if you want to get lucky that night.
