The very first time I came to Transit was for NYE 2004/05. That night was a really fun night with champagne and all. The next time I came was for the Valentine's party that same year. This night, however, didn't go so well for reasons I don't remember (or don't care to remember). So when it was time to choose a spot to celebrate my birthday, I was pretty hesitant to choose Transit. I guess what did it for me (on paper) was the music selection they played which would've suited my guests (if they did show up, but that's another story). Well, for the most part they were true to their package which is always a plus. They did give me n my guests free cover n a bottle of champagne and free drinks for an hour (even though it was domestic beers and well drinks). I wasn't in time to get a table, so the top of the speaker is where we had to park our stuff. But despite being absent from the place since the Valentine's party, little has changed. I guess that the only gripe I have about the place is the long line outside (especially in the cold, but they do a full patdown at the door), the snotty coat check girls who didn't give me a ticket for my coat and accused me I left it at the bar when all along they never gave me one, and how the rooms were separated. of course, the main room pumped out current dance music, behind the main room played hip hop in a already cramped area, and on the 2nd floor the DJ was playing bachata. I guess I do like the place, after all they did back up their word on the bday package. i just don't know why I can't give them a higher rating, there's always "something missing".
Pros: Ceaper than the downtown clubs, diverse crowd, music for all types of people
Cons: coat check girls had an attitude, not enough tables for parties
