Had an Awesome Weekend! 2/28/2011

I had my bday party this past Sat. at Roam, and had an awesome time!! I booked through Velvet List and they were super great. They stayed in contact me for over a month as I like to plan thing early, and when i arrived their door girl got us right in, we got a free champagne, and had a blast. I will def. be using Velvet List next time I go out in the city!! more

THIEVES!!!! DO NOT USE VELVET LIST PROMOTERS 12/19/2010

VELVET LIST PROMOTER SAMMY SOTO IS A THIEF!!!! VELVET LIST WILL SET UP A PARTY THEN STEAL YOUR MONEY AND DISAPPEAR!!!! YOUR PARTY WILL NOT BE REGISTERED WITH ANY OF THE CLUBS THAT HE PROMISES... HE RUINED MY BIRTHDAY NIGHT, HE GAVE US A BOTTLE THAT WAS NOT FUNNELED THRU THE CLUB, HE WILL NOT RETURN YOUR PHONE CALLS IF YOU HAVE A DISCREPENCY WITH YOUR ARRANGEMENTS. VELVET LIST IS DISHONEST!! more

plastic/fake/liars 11/17/2010

They really suck!!! not much to say but they want to always give you the run around...definitely not the best promotional company in NYC...they just went totally downhill since they first started... more

Move along 10/4/2009

Velvet List started sending me random text messages about parties and they will not stop. Not a very friendly thing to do and I do not know how they got my phone number. Pros: None Cons: Annoying text messages more

NOTHING BUT LIES 3/28/2009

Made arrangements with them 3+ weeks before my HUGE birthday party plan in the city. I got to the sponsored club, asked for the guy I arranged it with and he asked if I ordered bottle service, I said no. He said there is nothing he can do for me then. The called me that day to confirm, spoke to them at least 4x before that (in the preceding 3+ weeks), made sure my ratio was good (13 girls, 7 guys) and got DENIED. THEY LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE Pros: kept in good contact Cons: they lied about EVERYTHING they said more

Best Drinks this side of the Mississippi 10/11/2008

I had a wonderful experience last night with the girls at the bar. The bartender made the best cocktales a girl could ever dream about and becides that, he was extremely charming and courteous! Thanks Mr. 12 Am bartender for showing a bunch of silly girls a blast last night!! Pros: non watered down drinks, good food, vibe Cons: does not stay open longer more

Amazing Night 3/13/2006

Thank you! Velvet List pulled through, again. My best friends bachelorette party was the best of all 6 we have all thrown. I booked with Dave Cohen and they used a limo company called Just for you limo. The limo driver was the best! Knew where to go, how to get us in and took care of all the "rope" issues you can encounter going out to clubs in the city. The price was amazing compared to other types of services, and we did not want the "strippers" or the "80's prom show" etc. We wanted to go out and dance and party and just have a nice night out with the girls! Thats exactly what we want! Who knew a guy could plan such a GREAT bachelorette party! Go Dave! What a lucky wife you must have! Love and all! Velvet List is the BEST! Pros: price, limo, no lines Cons: none really more

Thank You 2/1/2006

I am new to the city and looked in Citysearch from my past experience using them finding restaurants. I needed to book a party for someone I work with and I did not really know what I was doing. I want to agree with Alex Graz that David Cohen and Velvet List were great. Perfect match for my party. They offered me several options of the types of clubs. He took the time to tell me the difference between all of them( and there was a major difference) and made the party work without issue. What I would tell anyone dealing with them, know what your expectations are and what they can offer. They can do some cool things for you and your friends, but you have to ask. Pros: Perfect Crowd, Excellent DJ, Open Bar 10-11!!! Cons: line( popular place) more

Great Time 1/26/2006

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for the party on friday at Duvet. I have to say, you followed through on everything you told me and we are most definitely coming back to Duvet and whereever Velvet List is. This is the 3rd party we did with Dave Cohen and Velvet List ( and easa) and the party was hot! Hot CROWD and totally hot venue and music. A bed, in a club! HOTNESS! Velvet List, you have a friend for life( or at least until I get married and stop going out every weekend)! Love ya! Alexa Pros: Hot Crowd, Great Staff, Total follow up more

An unexpected surprise 1/25/2006

Going out on the Velvet List, I was skeptical. At the venue I waited on line, I reached the doorman and said my name was on the Velvet List. He looked me over and said, I have you down on the comp list, I'm sorry we ran out, if youd like to pay I'll get you in or I can take care of you at another party". After waiting I figured at least he was nice about it and paid $20, I had bigger goals that night not just drinking. It wouldve been nice to get in for free but my experience was good. I used their service again and was comped. The hardest thing in the world is for one man to get into a club, Velvet List made it easy; everyone needs a surprise, Velvet List is as good a way as any to try and find one. Pros: Polite Staff, Well Informed, Great Crowds Cons: Cutoff times for list, late night lines more

Lack of Trust 11/7/2005

I've heard horror stories about VelvetList before, but I thought they'd be no different than any other nightlife service (ValetNoir, JoonBug, etc.) however they really surprised me. I arranged for their services in which only 3 guys and "8" girls would be coming in and we were promised free entry for all of us. Once we got to the sponsored club, each guy still ended up paying $20, which was flat out ridiculous. Another time, I was chosen as an "important" guest, in which I was allowed to invite up to 6 people with me. Again, each male had to pay, which meant that we turned around and decided it wasn't worth the trouble. Hard to trust a service that has left so many empty promises plus bad communication. Pros: Nightlife Variety Cons: Service, Expensive more

Had the BEST time with my bachelorette party. 9/14/2005

There were 14 girls and we all wanted to go out but who knew what. EVERYONE was from out of state except me and the bride. So, I looked online and found these guys and they do these packages. We go a limo, dinner, 4 nightclubs and an OPEN BAR IN THE LIMO ALL 6 hours. It costs us each 110 dollars, inc. tax and tip!!! The driver was SUPER friendly, all 4 clubs were expecxting us, got right in, no waiting and David Cohen( the guy we dealt with, I think the owner or president) had a free bottle of Champagne waiting for us at Duvet!!! It was the topping on the cake! So, thanks! I HIGHLY RECCOMEND these guys. They are far and above the best party planners we have dealt with. And this is bachlorette party #7 this year. AND EVERYONE talked about it! Pros: hot guys, hot parties, GREAT PRICE Cons: longer limo time, more food selection more

Had a great time 3/30/2005

I wanted to say thank you to Cityseach for the reccomendation. We needed a place to go, again, for a good night out and we found Velvet List. They booked our party @ Show Nightclub and it was everything that we asked for. We got right in, had a table and we saw some basketball players and models from Maxim. The open bar was good, hard to get more than 2 drinks, but whatever. It was free. The line was quick, no pretentious door people and a GREAT DJ( I think his name was big ben) Overall, everything was great, Dave Cohen and Easa were AMAZING and they really pulled out all the stops. Oh, and thanks for the free bottle of champagne! It was waiting for us when we got to our table, classy! Pros: Good Door people, Great Music, Amazing vibe Cons: only 2 drinks a time, too good looking more

Great Option! 3/23/2005

Velvet List has partnerships with some of the hottest clubs in NYC. I've used them a few times in the past to access some of the best spots in the city. Make sure to check out their website to see all of the upcoming events. I'd highly recommend them. more

being fooled 12/2/2004

I attended a Velvetlist event, Viscaya Thursday. Thr guestlist clearly stated that guys free before 11 with a date, and girls free before 12. We have 1 guy and 3 girls in the group, and got there 10pm. the guy still got charged $10 cover. We explained to the club about what Velvet list promised, their answer was "we just NEVER give guys comp entree, ever!" we paid $10 and still had a fun night, but I would not trust Velvet list anymore more

Not Worth It 9/8/2004

Booked a birthday party for my girlfriend thru Velvetlist at one of the clubs that they promote. They promised us that no one in our party would wait in line. Me and my girlfriend did not have to wait in line up the majority of our party did. Maybe good for small groups but for large ones I would not recommend. They do have a rep at the door but he/she are sometimes hard to track down. more
