Beautiful space, beautiful people and great music – I am very discerning when it comes to clubs but I love this place!!!!! The architecture inside and the way it is made is beautiful!!! The music is great, I was dancing all night long. And there are two rooms so if you like hip hop or mainstream you can have that but if you like trance, dance, techno you can have that too!
The bouncer (the dominican one with the beard) and people at the door are realllly nice. They are selective but very courteous and respectful.
I had sooooooo much fun. The crowd is mixed and good looking. Can't wait to go again!
EWW LOTS OF OLD JEEZY MEN AHH DON'T GO PLEASE – I have to say this has been the WOORST club and most horrible place i have ever been. I am not the type that enjoys to complain but omg. I read the reviews previous to going and thought humm maybe these people are just exaggerating but nope they were right. I went one night with 2 other girls well dress and we are not bad looking girls and after waiting online for about 40 minutes the man told me are you one the guest list I said what? he answered back " I don't have time for this next" and did not let us in. but yet when i called previous to going the girl said that it was a normal night no special events were going on. I have no idea who they think they are as if this were a celebrity club yeah right and let me say their are lots of old jeezy men that go here uhh ! never again belive me this place not only discriminates but its not even worth all the fuss. How much fun can you have with old men?
Club overall was Okay, but Service AWFUL! – My friends and I had planned a bachelorette party for our friend! We explained that we were 18 girls, and needed a table with bottles weeks prior to the date. We were quoted $1,000...
We get to the venue, and all of a sudden the cost increases to $1,500... now if it was any other occasion i would have told them to shove it, but b.c we had ALL 18 of us standing in line... they know they are able to get away with it. We barely finished 3 bottles, and had a fourth one paid for without even appearing to our table. When we finally paid our $2,000 tab, all of a sudden a new group has taken over one of our tables b.c our check has been paid for... and i snapped at the waitress like "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON, IS THIS HOW IT WORKS HERE, YOU PAID $2,000 AND BAM! YOUR OUT!"
Anyway, the Bachelorette had no idea what was going on and she had a good time... but I would probably NEVER EVER go here again, and NEVER EVER recommend it to ANYONE because of the AWFUL service we had!
Disappointing – Be careful parking around the area: watch for shutters, yellow lines, hydrants, and taxi stands. Cops love towing cars from the area. The cover is far too much for what you get inside. We got a discount off the regular $30 so we entered for $20, which is also far too much for this club. With lights dimmed out, it is impossible to admire the '30s theme of the Mansion. The only 30s thing are the sl*tty waitresses in French maid dresses. Not s*xy, just distastefully sl*tty.
There are just two sections to this club and oddly enough there is no actual dance floor. There are tons of tables/couches for bottle service, but it seems like most people are smart enough not to throw any more good money after the money wasted on the cover. Drinks are overpriced. It doesn't seem to be a good crowd magnet. Club was fairly empty on a friday night until 11 but things did pick up after 1. About 10% of the girls are hot, half are dressed as $5 wh*res and the rest have too much cushion for my liking. The good thing is that most of the dudes are worthless too so if you are a guy, know that there is not much competition. Guy to girl ratio is 1:2 and most of the guys are loners or losers.
Pretty decent – We were a group of 5 guys, and obviously we had to buy bottles to get in. We managed to convince the bouncers to get the $750 table and two bottles. Also, although we were 5 guys, we didn't face any drama at the door and had our cover charges comped. Inside, the first thing I noticed was how big the place is. There are two rooms: the big one is for house music and the smaller adjacent room is for hip hop music. Also, there were a lot of beautiful women. However, I found most of them less friendly and willing to dance compared to the women in other clubs I've been to. The house music also tends to go too slow when transitioning between songs, and I found myself losing a little rhythm. The main thing I liked was the immense size: I didn't encounter any of the elbow to elbow situations found in most other clubs. Altogether, I would recommend it, primarily due to the inexpensive price of bottle service we were able to obtain.
avoid at all times and go somewhere on 27th!!!!! – Wack club...the only club on club row (27th, although mansion is on 28th) that tries to charge cover...I am convinced that's because they never have enough people inside to make their money off of alcohol sales like most clubs. So I find myself spending 10-15 minutes trying to get in-once I tell them I don't pay cover they try to argue with me, but both times this has happened when they see that I am leaving they recant and give me a complimentry ticket (hey not trying tout my own horn but I'm a pretty good looking girl). There's never a line compared to other clubs except for one they've the illusion created themselves because once you get past inside is empty. I don't know what to say, the people at the door are disorganized and rude and inside the club the music and decor is okay but it is just not enough to compare to the other places I could be partying wihout the hassle.
Not a good club. – This club was way below average. The people who worked there go out of their way not to be nice, and the clientele are gross. For a place with such nice decor you would think they wouldn't let girls in wearing a baggy white t-shirt and jeans. I wouldn't waste your time here. Try a different club.
Great mega club – Crobar was fun, Studio was horrible, and Mansion is def a step up I've been partying in the city for more then 6 years and Mansion is def on top of the list of my favorite clubs very good looking crowd and staff. The music is great you get a little of both house in the main room and hip-hop and raggaeton in the other. The door staff is a bit too snooty we were on a guestlist and after saying the name the door person said he has no clue who that is and after we asked him to make sure he said " I don't know who that is and if you want to come I can give a reduced ticket" We waited for our friend up front and when he walked in the door guy knew exactly who he was and even called him by name. So they need to get off their high horse and do a little work like actually read the list.
NOT AS MUCH FUN AS CROBAR BUT STILL GREAT! – Went to the Mansion to the Russian party, that was held in the VIP room looking over the main dance floor with many friends, and without a doubt had one of the best times ever. As New Yorkers we have been everywhere and have seen it all. As a regular in Crobar for years I was skeptical to go back but was extremely pleased. No matter what its not about the place but about the crowd you are with, we party like the rock stars and always have a wonderful time. One biggest problem I had and I am sure ladies will agree with me are the slippery steps, going up and down to the main dance floor from the coat check or anywhere else it seemed as the steps were polished with the Vaseline, It was impossible to walk I felt like I was skiing on ice, plus its dark and you cant really see where you are stepping, the owners or the designers did not think it through, there is a law suite ready to happen, there should be some friction on the steps... Ladies wear comfortable shoes guys get in in sneakers so why cant we be comfortable.
Overall I had an amazing night and will definitely go back
Euro-trip – I went to Mansion with a couple of friends on a Friday night. The venue is almost too big for its own good. There are these girl dancers that are in a see-through elevator looking things that go up and down... very strange. The girls are wearing masks and kind of look like "kept" women haha. The music in this same room was Euro-music.. I never knew a single song. I had an okay time- I liked the other room with the DJ better though. The price of drinks are as expected- PRICEY! I had bottle service.. but i'm not sure if having it made the place even better?
I might go again..maybe on another night though.. the crowd was kind of sketch.
