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!
Cons: everything--4 dollar per item check, rude staff, too small
