Given the current state of the economy, it is fantastic to learn that the owners of Tillmans have made so much money that they don't wish any more - at least that is the impression given to my two friends and I earlier tonight - Thursday, November 20, 2008. While attempting entry, the doorman told us: ""We so busy tonight, that unless you want to throw some bottles around, you can't come in!"" It struck us as a classic club denial line, because we were the only ones on the street seeking entry, and the lobby was empty. We explained that we came specifically to see DJ Jazzy Nice spin a set because it had been years since I left New York and last heard Jazzy play live. The doorman went on to say that the venue has not had a Thursday Night DJ for the past 3 weeks and the music was being played off of an I-pod. Very Classy! In our youth we would have gotten irate with this treatment,, but now that we have a few more years of wisdom; We simply choose to spend our money in an establishment that welcomed our patronage and was truly packed. After enjoying a night of beverages and laughter in a venue up the block, on the way back to our car, the doorman offered to let us in. We stepped in, looked at the largely empty Tillmans and laughed all the way home about the invisible crowd Tillman's is now attracting. If you are one of the Beautiful Invisible people - this place is for you!!
Pros: Great looking Venue
Cons: Angry Staff - Poor Customer Relations
