The BEST spot on a Wednesday Night! – I went there on a Wednesday night and had a great time!!! The music was great, plenty of sexy people, drinks on point!! Believe the hype, this club is so much fun and it has to be the best place to party in NYC on Wednesday nights. My friend has been going there almost every week and she says they have a different party theme there every Wednesday. You should definitely check this spot out you won't be disappointed.
Ask for The KONGLIST – This place rocks! The music is unbelievable & the crowd is uber-sexy! I went there 2 months ago w/ my co-workers and we had the time of our life! It's a dimly-lit, upscale lounge with Asian furnishings and the bottle waitresses there to die for! I give this party which was throw by [TheKONGLIST] -TWO BIG THUMBS UP!!!!!!!
Sexy lounge, awesome music! – I checked this place out on Saturday with a few friends (girls & guys) and I thought this lounge was sexy with red-Asian theme upholsteries that ran throughout the venue. They always seem to have BIG NAME radio DJ's from HOT 97.1 who showed up around 1am and boy oh boy they are the most gifted DJ's on Planet Earth! I'm from North Carolina and I use my satellite radio almost every night so I can listen to HOT 97.1 FM in New York...I'll be sure to check this place out the next time I visit!
SAT @ SUZIE WONG IS UNREAL! – HOWDY YA'LL! MY NAME IS WADE and I come visit New York City every other month because my best friends all live there. I love their Nightlife but the last few times I had check-out the hot spots in the Meat Packing District and those places were so snotty & stuck-up, it just wasn't for me! Don't get me wrong, I love classy girls but if I wasn't wearing a suit or had tables, I wasn't getting love!
REWIND to my January visit to SUZIE WONG...man o man was this place happening! My boys knows this promoter named Kong from THEKONGLIST and they told me his parties has nothing but girls and they were right on the money! I had the pleasure to meet and takea photo with him and his female patrons -it's like the girls I see in the latest hip-hop videos! Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL WOMEN who actually spoke & danced with me! SUZIE WONG is a nice decked-out lounge with quick serviced bartenders, dance floors & even go-go dancers! I was told there was another side room but I was having a blast in the main rooom regardless! Not sure what the negative comments are all about but I guess you gotta know certain promoters ---and it's all about the company you keep because the venue and music was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD! I'll be back to New York and I wanna re-live my night at SUZIE WONG again!
CHINA CLUB, SUZIE WONG potatoe, potato- whats the dif ??? – We were on line with everyone else for almost an hour despite of being on a 'gueslist'. The bouncers were purposely holding the line out to make people pay $20.00 per head after midnight! Once we got in and ordered our drinks, the drinks were about $15 each which was okay except the drinks were so watered down we had to keep telling the bartender to add more alcohol and make it strong! Unfortunately, bartender was still unsuccesful in making the actual drink we ordered and after dancing to good music, which really was I think the only good thing in this place, dont dare go to the bathroom alone ladies, the doors dont lock. Bathrooms were sort of unisex. The bathroom attendant told me to go to the last stall and as I turned the knob and opened the door, I found a lady was using the bathroom, I turned away and had to get my friend with me to secure the door! and remind you there was already a bathroom attendant?!
This place is overrated! Expensive with crappy service! I will not recommend it to anyone! and definitely have no intention of going back. Its similar to china club..you get robbed with cover charge and coat check before you even get a seat. Your money is worth somewhere else!
Don't believe the hype! – I think all of the press that this club has gotten lately has gone to their heads. The bouncers are rude and violent (I witnessed two bouners attack a couple physically after a verbal disagreement), the managers do not honor their guestlist/reservation agreements, and the waitresses/bartenders tack on charges to your credit card.
Please believe the negative reviews from other patrons. I wish I did before I went there. They all basically say the same thing. Your money is better spent at a different establishment.
Great Night Out! – I just went last night (Saturday night) for the first time and had a blast! Granted, there were three things that made the whole night a lot easier. First, it was an all girl party (we were having a Ladies Night). Secondly, the promoter that night is my best friend. Thirdly, we got there REALLY early (around 10:45). All of these things made it easy to get in, and when we did they were having 2 for 1 until midnight. Also the drinks were strong! The prices were usual Manhattan prices (ie $15 martini). The music was REALLY good, a mix of mostly hip hop, reggae, reggaeton, top 40, and some throw backs to the 80s. While my girls and I had a great time, I'm not sure it would be as enjoyable if we hadn't known the promoter. I definitely recommend that everyone dress well, and if you are bringing guys, make sure you bring a ton of girls too.
Suzie Wong Won over any Friday party!! – This is definitely a place to check out!!! I love going to clubs/lounges with a charm. Suzie Wong's has an asian decor with enough spots to park yourself if you wanna take a rest. If your dressed nicely, not necessarily a look that belongs on a runway, there shouldn't be a reason as to why you can't go in. No door haggling or a long wait. Real bouncers and not national security were monitoring the velvet ropes. Mentioning Velvet...I typed clubs, NYC, promoters and this website velvetlist.(just type velvet list in a search) They have lists in different clubs with offers of the likes. Check them out for a good time b/c I DEFINITELY enjoyed my night out with my girls!!!
have you BEEN to nyc clubs??? – for one thing, this is not the most amazing club. but don't believe the other comments 100%....
any other reasonably to very exclusive club is going to have bad reviews from people who bring guys (who will almost ALWAYS be charged or required to buy bottles) or aren't attractive enough to get in (having an ID is NOT enough in most clubs in chelsea/meatpacking).
go to a bar. don't get mad at a place for being superficial. you should know you're just asking for it.
the place isn't bad...a little trashy/bridge & tunnel some nights, but hey, who cares when you're drunk. you can get sloppy and have a good time.
just stop whining because you're not used to meatpacking/chelsea club etiquette. i have plenty of friends that stick to bars because they aren't going to be turned away and don't have to worry about it.
if you have guys with you, GO TO A BAR.
if you aren't at least 5'5" and get whistled at on the street regularly, GO TO A BAR.
you people complaining about demeaning doormen are just doing this to yourselves.
THE MOST EXPENSIVE PLACE NEVER TO GO TO EVER – I Went there this past weekend for a friends birthday, now mind you they make you get on these FAKE guestlist and they wont let you in until the FREE part on the GUESTLIST terms are out so that you can pay a cover charge of not half becuase to me half is if its 30 bucks ur charging me 10 NOPE they charged me 20 bucks and my hubby 30 so thats 50 bucks and thats not even half of what i spent inside!!!! so we finally get inside and i want a drink BAD IDEA i get a drink for myself and the birthday girl and two beers HUH 44 bucks so i basically spent 88 dollars plus the cover charge of getting in so thats 140 and an hour didnt even pass yet...then i use my credit card to pay for my last drink which is only my third at this point because it was sooo pricey they tried charging me 100 bucks autherization thnx goodness i called my bank the next day and made sure the damn bartender didnt try to take a 57 dollar tip....And dont even get me started on the DJ the worst i dont care if he is from HOT97 He was the WORST HE PLAYED THE SAME DAME SONGS 4 TIMES AND EACH TIME HE KEPT TALKING OVER THE MIC WTF IS UP WITH THAT....AND THE BOUNCERS WERE EVEN WORSE THEY JUST WANTED TO BE ON WWE OR SOMETHING CAUSE THEY KEPT TRYING TO FIGHT EVERYONE AND THE BOTTLE SERVICE WAS RIDICULIOUS...PRICES CHANGED WITH THE GROUPS THAT SHOWED UP AND IT WAS SOOOOOO WACK FOR ALL THAT MONEY THAT THEY WANTED IT WAS HORRIBLE DONT EVER GO THERE UNLESS U WIPE UR BUTT WITH UR MONEY THEN SPEND IT ALL THERE IN LESS THAN AN HOUR!!!! AND I HATE THAT I HAVE TO EVEN GIVE IT A STAR IT DESERVES THUMBS DOWN ALL THE WAY DOWN!! BLAME THE BOUNCERS FOR THIS LAME REVIEW
