A little Bit Of Everthing – I was taken to the box by a trio of strippers that my wife and I met on a dinner cruse to see the fourth of july fireworks. We did not know that they were strippers at the time. They were really into my wife and really really hot, so we ran with it. The one girl who was familiar with the place talked to the door man. she then told me that we could get in and get a good table if I gave the door man $400. No problem. Also, there would be a 2 bottle minimum. No problem. The table was great! Right next to the stage. The crowd was great; midgets in leather ,hermaphrodites... you name it. The show was great.... midgets in leather, hermaphrodites, acrobats. All great fun. Then I got the bill for the three bottles of champagne....$3000 ! I still had a great time. I will go again. I just hope that the cover charge is not so much this time .PS The strippers split just minuets before the check arrived.
Not a place for the timid! – By far one of the coolest places in the city. Once you get inside, the place is straight out of a movie. The staff is extremely nice and hospitable(they even pass out popcorn!). The crowd is a nice mix of different types of people of all ages. The show was a crazy. I have never seen such a show before and never will again. This place rocks with originality. Love it.
Astounding acts--and prices--at Simon Hammerstein's freak show of a dinner theater. – In Short
This intimate, intoxicating theater is a two-story collage of lush fabrics, fringes, chandeliers, feathers and curtains, and the colorful stage production recalls the Folies Bergere of 1920s Paris. Marveling the modern-day audiences are forgotten turn-of-the-century virtuoso acts--fire-eaters, knife-throwers, contortionists--accompanied, of course, by lovely little helpers in pasties. Those seated on the main floor become the playthings of performers and beloved drag queen host Raven O. Dinner is equally sensory--beets with goat cheese, veal cheeks and gorgonzola-stuffed pears.
The box rocks!! – I am only posting a review in reponse to what i've seen. The box is the most fabulous place in NYC. Enough said.
great atmosphere!! – This spot is terrific!!! If you haven't had a chance to check it out, i would suggest doing so.
Beautiful interiors and great shows. – Good vibe...good service. Muy expensivo though. Enjoy the late night 3am show, if you can get in. The balcony can't be reached to view the show by the way unless you have a booth there.
The box – yeah this palce gets packed, packed with celebrities, like lenny kravitz, mick jagger, lindsey lohan, scarlette johnassen, & some famous bands. I can't believe this is working in the neighborhood but I love it (when they let me in!)
A new era begins – This place takes nightclub to a new plateau! great sight lines, awesome sound and quality space. The is a amusing spectacle and the women are hot. This place has it all, but mostly delicous! good luck getting in.
My new favorite place – This place is bananas! It really has everything you want- great sight lines, awesome sound, and brilliant design. Best addition to the hood in a while. The designer definitly "gets it". It harkens you back in history and yet still has modern ammenities. This will definitly be a regular visiting place for me.
