Hot Party Bar in the Meat Packing District – I booked a wild work party for 12 of us for free through AccessGotham. We got a free round of ice cold,tasty Jagermeisters on the house, before we got our coats off. Incredible service, the girls raved over the Etsy decor.

Really not recommended. – Really, one of the worst places in town!

I got a Guilt City discount, 4 beers 2 appetizers and Mac&Cheese, for a really good price. I thought to myself, you know what, I know this Meatpacking spot from before, it looks like a cool design, why not?

TooK my hubby on a Thursday eve, they made us make reservations, the place was completely empty, it is huge, and most of the people were at the bar. The design was crazy, really, way too much, smells and looks like a bad thrift shop. Even though the place was empty, they set us in a shady table for 2, I mean, no one is here, can I get a comfy chair? My chair actually had a phone on it, really a vintage phone that was really annoying. Bathrooms were dirty, you couldn't wash your hand in the sink, and the toilet paper was all over the floor.

We got all our beers together, they got really warm by the time we got to the second one, so we didn't even drank them. Appetizers: baked brie was boring and not as hot as you would expect a baked brie to be, the honey sauce and fresh grapes were good, but besides that... Their "Disco Fries" were a goowy dry cheese cluster on top of not so fresh fries, probably from the Disco era, and the mac and cheese, I mean, that's your thing? over cooked pasta in cream?

I know we came with a coupon, but still... The "bill" for everything we ate (they recommend to tip according to the original prices) was $72. LET ME TELL YOU, it is really good we paid about a third, bc it was nasty!

Never ever going back to that place, SORRY. No wonder it's empty on a Thursday night...

Great Birthday! – I had my Birthday at the Collective... I booked with Birthday Bottle Service and got a free table, it was awesome, the punch bowl was a great spin on the typical bottle service!

awesome Party – You may remember this place as ONE little West 12th. We're happy to say that they've only improved on the venue and its namesake. It stands to be the latest and funkiest lounge to arrive on the party scene in New York City. New Years Eve 2011 promises to be a wild and crazy party.

Fun Place, great scene, peoplewatching – Fun place to meet for drinks, and good drinks...great bar service. We got there at around 9 pm on Saturday, pretty busy time in Meatpacking on Saturday night. It was 6 of us for drinks, we were invited by the hostess to seat at a high table, which was very comortable to talk accross the table. People were ordering food at the bar and the restaurant was pretty packed. Drinks came in about 15 min which was fine and the waitress came bakc to ask if we want to order another round.

We didn't order food, so I can tell how food was, but the drinks and the service was excellent on Saturday night.

This place is fun

Citysearch Editorial Review – Formerly occupied by the restaurant ONE, this Meatpacking District space has been transformed from a typical club into a junkyard chic restaurant and bar. The owners enlisted help from the designers at ICRAVE, who scoured eBay, Etsy and Craigslist to create an eclectic room decorated entirely with recycled pieces of art; for example, a flock of seagulls made out of license plates hangs over the main bar area and is meant to symbolize that birds have no boundaries. The menu is just as colorful, with highlights that include truffled deviled eggs, blue cheese tater tots, chicken ā€˜nā€™ waffles with maple gravy, veal and ricotta meatballs and Hong Kong ribs.

Food is Art – Dropped by here with friends during the heat wave in April and sat outside. Its right across from Pastis and sitting outside you get a lot of great people watching in the heart of the Meatpacking. The hosts are uber cool looking with hi-top converse and twilight hair. Our servers were darling and easy on the eyes. Their outdoor space has fun, eclectic living room furniture mixed in with normal tables. Our menus were attached to some metal clipboard and seemed to focus on comfort food- burger, disco fries and ribs. We decided on splitting a few things. The spinach dip was heavy on the greens and lacking the typical cheese and cream found in dips. The burger (we heard they had sliders but they weren't on the menu), hails from the same meat distributor as the fine folks at STK, was average. Nothing memorable to our meal till we got to dessert. We had something called a ding dong that was part cake part ice cream and all delicious. The dessert menu was in a frame and the check is given to you in a book. We checked out the restrooms which had potty joke books in each stall. And the interior dining room was filled with all types of knick knacks and random street signs and fun creations. All in all I would recommend a late night visit here in their dining room to appreciate their amazing decor. But who wants to pass up people watching on 9th Ave at the start of summer while sipping prosecco in a funky chair! Gorgeous space, average food.
