I always give every new spot the benefit of the doubt. When it comes to the Gramercy, I've given the place the benefit of the doubt on multiple occassions - only to be disappoint...

Avoid this ""bar"" at all costs 2/14/2011

Not only is this ""bar"" pricey, they do not have a single tap to get beer out of and only have 4 choices of beer to get from a bottle. The hard liquor selection isn't extensive at all. Located on Lincoln Ave. There are plenty of superior bars to choose besides this bar/lounge. more

An embarrassment to Chicago 3/7/2010

Have you ever tried to make small talk with the fat ugly chick at a bar JUST to be nice, only to be blown off by her like she thinks she's too good for you? That is Soiree. It has to be the ugliest, dinkiest bar I've ever gone to, so where they get off pretending to be exclusive is a mystery. Of course, their idiotic business practices don't surprise me, since it's run by a bunch of uneducated pricks. Wow, Soiree, I'm so sad that I won't be able to mix and mingle with your smelly, sweaty crowd. If it is still open by next year, I will have lost all faith in humanity and good taste. The fact that this dump is named ""Soiree"" must be an ironic joke. Cons: I could feel the STDs floating around in the air more

Disgusting 3/7/2010

I can't find a better word to describe this place but disgusting.. It pretty much describes the people, the venue, the service, and most of all the lack of human decency. The manager, Jeff or Jack or something was rude, and looked something like between the mix of what a pig, bull dog, and danny devito, but uglier if you can imagine that. The venue inside was small, ugly and full of people that looked exactly like jeff and his creepy crawlies. We left within five minutes after spending way too much at the bar for a watered down long island. Will vow never to step foot in this place again. Pros: It is on a street with a lot of good other bars Cons: Too many to list more

soiree deserves to be shut down 3/7/2010

The unique thing about soiree is that not only does the place suck, but the people who run it suck even more. they're disrespectful and you can't trust any of them; they treat all their customers like shit. server even had the balls to tell my friend ""you know, you HAVE to tip me."" i don't know why they pretend to be so exclusive, since they're not at all the type of place to attract high class clientele. people warned me about going there, but i thought i would give it a shot...ugh what a huge mistake. the only way i can try to justify the bouncers' and jeff's (the manager) attitude is by wondering if maybe they grew up in prison...where else could they have learned such ridiculous (lack of) manners? Cons: the whole thing is a big CON more

Horrible 2/5/2010

I held an event there. The manageres didn't follow thier contract. the body guards were rude. the service was bad. manger was unresponsive. guests had purses/wallets/coats stolen. the company would not pick up our phone calls afterward. What an awful night!!! Ddon't waste your time here! Pros: 0 Cons: bad drink, bad service, rude, more

Fun B-day Party Spot 3/9/2009

I went here for a friend's birthday last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. We had a drink package (3 hours of call liquor and beer for $30 - not bad) and as the night went on the bar got packed, but in a good way. The decor is awesome. I would definately reccomend this spot for parties! more

Awesome lounge in Lincoln Park 3/9/2009

The Trashiest Place in Chicago!! 2/27/2009

This place is the worse place I've ever been in Chicago. Trashy service, very irresponsible staff and definately not a place for sophisticated crowds. The waitresses have such huge attitudes have never seen before. I will never recommend this place to anyone! Go spend you money somewhere else!\r \r Cons: Bad service, Rude Staff more

Good. 2/23/2009

Ive been to soiree a few times now. its always packed, people are always having a good time, the music is upbeat, and the drinks are reasonably priced. I like more relaxed places but its a good spot to bring your friends to. more

No cover! 2/23/2009

Okay, i get it, im a dude. But i think its unfair that every bar in chicago lets only women in for free!. In general, were the ones that spend the money!. And this is the reason im always at soiree, i dont have to pay to get in. more

Valentines Day! 2/17/2009

Me and my girls did a bar crawl on valentines day and ended up at soiree.. i was relieved to see there wernt any cheesy hearts and cupids hanging up all over (being 12 single girls on a bar crawl on valentines day, you probably got the hint we're all a little anti) it was decently busy and the music was good.. we suprisingly had a really good time.. the owner bought us shots and gave us all free glasses of champagne.. it says alot about a bar if you can go in on a slower night and still have a good time! more

Parties 2/13/2009

I had a party at soiree a few weeks ago.. everything was okay,the place was busy, they music was good, they only thing we didn't know was we were supposed to be there by 1030.. they still helped us get a table and we ended up having a great night. i would recommend planning a party here, the staff all seemed very helpful and appreciative. more

best b day lounge in the city 2/11/2009

i totally disagree with the below review. i have been to soiree many times and have had the best parties ever. my cousin just had her party there this past sat and it was great again. go to soiree for yourself and you will see what i am talking about. it's safe to say that another bar or some angry drunk customer wrote the below comment. shame on you. soiree is on my top 5 places to party in chicago. keep up the great work guys, and don't pay attention to the haters in this city. Pros: great music, great specials, great vibe Cons: arrive early they get busy more
