Nice Find! – INC Lounge is located in the Time Hotel just outside of Times Sqaure. INC has a great space and has cool atmosphere. I went here with a large group once and it was a bit of a hassle to get in. The next time we went our group was setup by AccessGotham. com and we got in immediately.
The bartenders are extremely cute and very friendly :)
Threw my Gf's bday at INC – Last month I planned my girlfriend a surprise party at INC. We had approximately 60 people and for that many people coming, I surely expected the night to be stressful. I was recommended AccessGotham. com a free party planning service and they set everything up beautifly!
All our guests got in immediately and with no hassles, which was a concern of mine. We got 3 bottles and the price was reasonable, I can't recall the price of hand, but if it wasn't i would've been annoyed.
The DJ spun great remixes and top 40's all night and to top things off wished my girlfriend a happy birthday!
Thank you INC and AccessGotham for helping plan this special affair!
Great Birthday Party Venue! – Last week I had my 25th birthday party at Inc Lounge on a Thursday night. I had a huge turnout & a stress free evening. I had a photographer take pictures of the evening & the decor makes the pictures look so fabulous. Thanks to Jesse & the whole Inc Lounge staff for being so accomodating!!
The worst experience ever! – I planned to have my birthday party here as i really liked the look and music at this lounge. I made the reservation a month in advance and reconfirmed the day before. The Manager Jesse was very helpful and assured me of my reservation etc. However, I got a call from Jesse at 9 pm on the night of my party letting me know that he couldn't accomodate me as they had a private event. My guests were going to arrive at 10pm and in a place like NYC its difficult to make last minute reservations for a party of 25-30 ppl. The manager didnt seem apologetic at all. However, thankfully was able to make a reservation for me at another lounge. I however hated that lounge as that was not the idea i had for the venue for my birthday party. Bottom Line - I DO NOT recommend this place. Highly unrelieable and discourteous!
An upscale cocktail lounge and party spot nestled inside a midtown hotel. – Located on the second floor of The Time Hotel (and accessed by way of a glass elevator), this hidden hot spot is an nice place for a weekday drink and snack, with a swankier scene on busier weekend nights. A front room is filled with mod-style black and white couches and chairs, while a long middle room features red velvet couches, Warhol-style prints and a bar area that doubles as a dancefloor on weekends, when a DJ spins. Toward the back, a third space boasts cowhide ottomans, red flowered wallpaper, mirrors of all shapes and sizes and a pool table.
Hits: The mod decor makes the place feel chic, an abundance of couches make it feel comfortable, and the fact that it's nestled inside a hotel makes it feel like a hidden gem.
Misses: The cocktail menu is a bit uninspired, with most standard bar drinks (like apple martinis and cosmopolitans) going for $13-$14.
Great birthday spot – I recently came here for my friends birthday party this past saturday night. When we arrived we seated at a table that was reserved for us by the friendly manager Jesse. At that point we recieved our bottles of liquor very quickly. The music was a great mix, playing everything from Rock to hip hop to some dance music. The vibe of the room is real slick and the couches are real comfortable. The staff was real attractive and they were very attentive with making sure everyone had a drink in hand at all times. I will definitely come recommend this place for birthday parties and other events.
