To be fair and honest. My name is David Cohen. I am a general manager of Pink Elephant and we did indeed close the West 27th Street location sometime last fall of 2009. East ...

Worst

Honestly, this is just another club, and NOTHING is happening there. ok music and no decor. This club is a small one. I seriously want to congratulate whoever made a big name out ...

Correct Pink Elephant LEFT 27th Street in August of 2009 4/20/2010

To be fair and honest. My name is David Cohen. I am a general manager of Pink Elephant and we did indeed close the West 27th Street location sometime last fall of 2009. East 21st Street opens this Fall 2010. Pros: Hot Crowd, Great Music, Amazing Service, Cons: Tough Door more

THURSDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS ARE THE BEST!! 3/1/2010

I am a New Yorker and as we all know Pink has been opened forever, but it is still one of the best club in the Chelsea Area. I always have fun when i go to pink! They have these European Parties every Saturdays and thursday, good way to meet new European friends! I actually used a promoter's list last saturday they have their own private entrance to the club. Text them to get in contact with them to avoid paying the cover charge. I got in contact with Vero and Marion - 917 569 0979 917 557 5787 Simple tip : ) more

A Pretty Good TIme 1/11/2010

I went there for NYE with a buddy of mine. We had our own table and couch. When we go there it was already pretty lively inside. The crowd was young (early to mid 20's) which was cool. The girls were really cute for the most part, and the staff (aside from the bartenders) got us in quickly and got us situated. They kindly removed the people who were sitting on our couch. There were only three bartenders for an awful lot of people, and they weren't terribly fast. But it turned out to be a very good night. Crowd was cool, we went through an agency so we had an all night open bar (guessing paying regualr price would have been steeper) but all in all it was a good experience. If you are in your 20's, and don't mind a crowded dancer floor, and house music then you'll dig it. If you hate house music and crowds, then stay away. Pros: The girls were pretty hot. Cons: Not enough bartenders, or they weren't moving fast enough. more

Wish I started going here 2 years ago 10/3/2009

I don't go out often but had a great time at Pink Elephant. For once a club that didn't try to rip me off. Went at 11.30 on a Sat night when it opened. Joked around with the bouncer, seemed like a nice guy. $20 cover and $12 drinks is actually pretty reasonable. No stupid "recovery charge" plus 20% tip added to the bar tab like they did at Tenjune. The party filled-up by 12.30 and rocked through the small hours, but never so crowded that you couldn't get around. To the reviewer below, of course it's small. That's the point. If it were large they'd have to let in lots of people there that you don't want. more

New York shoppng: The after with Pink Elephant 8/9/2009

Pink elephant is a must. On Fashion week, Mickey ROURKE, Forest Whitaker were there! Stunning night club! Still a good reference for tourists and newyorkers. more

Don't GO Don't Go 8/2/2009

The Pink elephant takes the pretentious New York club seen to a whole new level. I went with a group of friends on a Saturday night for a bridal party. We had booked a table to make this night special for my friend. When we got there they told the white woman in are group who booked that party that we where not allowed in because “they where over there quota of black people” In a group of 10 woman only 3 of use where African-American. I can believe that a club would turn away a party of ten girls who booked a table and bottle severs because there where to many black people. Pros: It is in NYC But so aren’t a lot of clubs Cons: If you don’t look like a girl from The hills don’t bother more

such a fun and classy club 7/16/2009

Pink Elephant is so much fun every thursday. For the past month every Thursday they have a different themed party. For example, they had a western theme and a hippie theme. I go there every Thursday with Vero's List. They meet me right outside of the club and walk me right in at midnight with NO COVER! It is so convenient - but you have to RSVP before at 917 569 0979. The club itself has great house music and a good looking crowd. I would recommend going on Thursdays with Vero's List to anyone! Pros: great house music and pretty people more

I will not go Again - NOT EVER 7/3/2009

At 11 o'clock on a Friday night, On a "promoters" recommendation we brought our group of 10 girls and 5 guys to this Pink Elephant disaster. We are all 20 something, beautiful people. All of the girls were offered comps, however the guys had to pay $800 for bottle service!!! That is two bottles at FOUR HUNDRED each!!! After the girls made their way in with two guys (for a tip of $200 to the door man) we realized that there were less than 30 people in the club to begin with! Obviously this club has driven away its supposed patronage with their outrageous prices and 80's trash music (really trash, not even danceable). Next time I will not waste my time and I will head to a New York hot spot, not this worthless strip of Doochebaggery! Pros: Rude at best Cons: EXPENSIVE more

there're waaaaay better places in NY than this one,seriously 7/2/2009

Honestly, this is just another club, and NOTHING is happening there. ok music and no decor. This club is a small one. I seriously want to congratulate whoever made a big name out of this. I would HIRE you for my company. I'm not joking. contact me. I just got back from it and i'm still in shock! I'm happy I didn't spent a dime in there coz my friend had a table there. Pros: music is ok Cons: every thing else more

Check for ID 6/14/2009

Do they ID if you're good looking? i heard they don't, but someone told me that it was also very strict. Pros: idk Cons: idk more

Good Time 5/10/2009

The club is extremely trendy .... so you must dress up to par if you want to get it. The music is amazing...they have great DJ's.....the only down fall is the prices are a little steep and they dont let guys in unless you know the owner or your there with 20 girls!!! more

STRICTLY OK - BETTER THAN TENJUNE 3/31/2009

Lot of old-arab-tons of money to drop type guys, with bimbo looking girls. We were a group of 6 people (3 girls, 3 guys) who got a table on a saturday night. We are in our early-20s, all went to a very reputable college and all work at reputable places. The minute the waitress came to our table, she completely ignored us girls and went straight to my guy friend looking at the drink menu..and asked him straight up - "SO WHICH BANK DO YOU WORK FOR?" - my friend works for a big name bank and said so, but obviously just having started work, we only purchased one bottle. The waitress thought we would order 2 or more, and on hearing one, she gave us the shoddiest treatment EVER. We gave her the stupid tip even though she hardly deserved it. They even upped the minumum of our table from $1000 (over the phone earlier in the day) to $1500 (once we reached the club)....obviously then we all had to chip in for the extra bottle. SCAM SCAM SCAM GOLD DIGGING SCAM all throughout. The music wasn't bad though. In any case I would pick Pink over Tenjune ANYDAY. Pros: decor Cons: obnoxious waitresses more

THE WORST CLUB IN NYC---SAVE YOUR MONEY 'N TIME!!!!!!!!!! 3/26/2009

First off, I am one of the most positive people around. I try to find the best in everything. But this place is whack, a total piece of s***t excuse of a club in NYC. The coat check is 4 dollars per item on top of your cover--they must be pretty desperate to make money off people's coat checks. No respectable club forces you to do this. Second, the place is tiny. It's really small. A round of couches, the bar, and a small dance floor and you're done-there's no exploring to do here, it's too damn small. Most importantly, the staff at this place are RUUUUUUUUDE. They treat you like you're a speck and don't care about respecting their customers. Clubs should cultivate repeat customers, this place just doesn't care. It needs to get over itself. I have been to great clubs in NYC and in other big cities and this place is nothing special. I don't care that P. Diddy showed up here once or something, it's pretty pathetic they're this impressed with themselves. In case they didn't notice, there are a plethora of great clubs in NYC and in West Chelsea. Do yourself a favor--save your time and money, SKIP THIS PLACE, go to Marquee which is around the block and go to a decent-sized club that is classy and respects its customers. Pink Elephant, clean up your act. I will never go back to this hellhole even if they gave me free bottle service. Clubs that take themselves too seriously are destined to go down--people go to have a good time. I'm saving my benjamins and poppin' bottles at Marquee. PEEEEEEACE! Pros: nothing Cons: everything--4 dollar per item check, rude staff, too small more

Love Pink Elephant!!! 3/24/2009

Regarding to the review below: I'm really happy that i found this review before going to Pink. I called Marion and she got me and my friends in VIP. We dind't have to pay the entrance fee and totally enjoyed our night at pink elephant! Christiane Pros: beautiful crowd/luxurious atmosphere more

just miserable 3/18/2009

From the looks of the review below me, it seems like Pink Elephant is so desperate for business that their promoters are begging people to come via citysearch post. That is not what this site is for! It is for honest reviews and that is what this is... If you have heard good things about this club in the past, know that it is no longer true. I used to go to Pink Elephant requently and would have a good time. But the vibe has really changed. The crowd, employees, and drinks are really well below standard. The design of the space is pretty cool, but that is pretty much it. You can have a much better time at any other club in the area. Pros: it USED to be good? Cons: many more

One of the best clubs in New York 3/10/2009

Pink Elephant is still one of the hottest places in NYC. Their selective door policy is the secret for the great looking crowd you will find inside. My advise is to get in with a promoter to avoid waiting in line. You can text Marion at 917 557 5787 if you need any help with your group or to reserve a table. Pros: Selective more

Overrated nightclub going downhill 3/4/2009

Maybe Pink Elephant used to be hot, but now it's just a hot mess! I went the other Thursday night for their Carnival party. I will say that the dance floor was crowded, but unfortunately everyone was smoking! While making my way through the crowd I got a bad cigarette burn on my arm. Also, there was a slight rise in the floor where my table and I saw three girls trip and fall on the faces in the short time I was there....lawsuit waiting to happen! Although I'm not one to hate on women's bodies, I believe that if you are a paid dancer at a night club you should be decent looking.The dancers were unattractive and one was even overweight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. You couldn't pay me to go back. Pros: honestly none that i can think of Cons: everyone is smoking, ugly staff more

Still the HOTTEST House Club in NYC 1/7/2009

I have been going here on and off for 3 years. It has lost nothing but some disgruntled owners( i know this for a fact as I know all the staff). Beyond that, the best DJ's in NYC hands down. This place has the best musical influence in NYC for a SOLID crowd week in and week out. I never write comments on citysearch, but I started and this is def. one I wanted to mention! If you are coming to NYC, this is the place to see "the real NYC nightlife" to be honest and unbiased. Pros: HOT HOT staff and BEST MUSIC Cons: costs $, ugly peoplle , dont bother more

Editorial

  • Named for the fanciful hallucinations that arise from too much drink, this lush nighttime playground's hedge-lined entrance hallway hints at the highly manicured design to come. Inside, polished silver buckets gleam beneath chandeliers strung with pearls, and leafy vines crawl along the curvaceous walls. Plush bottle service alcoves undulate and encircle a small, sunken dance floor, which is fueled by house music and an aromatic scent machine that secretes libido-sparking hormones along with its flowery smells.
