Cute Little Spot - No attitude - Great drinks – I attended my friend's birthday party here last week. Great time had by all. Easy access for 25 plus people. We arranged to have the cover/ticket fee waived previously. Of course we more than made up for it in alcohol consumption. The music was amazing that night (sat.) - for all the people who like to dance. I do and did it for 4 hours straight. No attitude crowd. Not the glamour crowd but certainly a good vibe and decent looking crowd aside from a a few "uglies" here and there. Bartenders are fast and friendly. I've been to Marquee next door on several occasions and nothing bad to say about that place either. Glass is less "pretentious" for those of you who are sensitive and less expensive but can be just as fun if your with your own group. I wouldn't necessarily go there to meet someone. It's a fun place to chill with friends but if your looking for love...look elsewhere. Bouncers are courteous in comparision to most other NYC hotspots. Also one last note for the guy who complained about paying for the drink ticket...at least you get something for your money...other places charge more and you get zip. Oh the one bad thing is the number of bathrooms. When the place gets crowded you may get stuck in a bit of a line but it's not a deal breaker for me. I say go and enjoy!
Just buy a botel – I was outside of glass for 4 hours when a fight broke out and the bouncer beat up some inecent kid the bouncer broke his pinky it was like watching a match out of UFC I'm never going back fernando was a total looser the guy tought he was a roller but he was nothing close he was a total a@@ not rexomemded to anyone period
Pretty Damn GOOD LOUNGE – WELL I'VE BEEN TO THIS PLACE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON SATURDAY!! I THINK ITS THE PERFECT PLACE TO START OFF THE NIGHT. THE STAFF WERE VERY NICE AND FRIENDLY. I RECIEVED A COMPLIMENTARY DRINK WITH MY ENTRANCE. I MET ALOT OF NEW PEOPLE , DRANK ALOT OF LIQUOR AND MET AMAZING PEOPLE. THE CROWD WAS PRETTY ATTRACTIVE, THOUGH I'VE HEARD DIFFERENTLY. I'M VERY GLAD I DIDNT LISTEN TO THE REVIEWS!! I WITNESSED FIRST HAND THIS PLACE IS PRETTY AMAZING. IT ALSO HAS A BACK ENTRANCE WHICH IS OPEN FOR SMOKERS .. I LIKE IT ALOT I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!
the worst bar in all the land – to summarize; all the D-bags and euro-trash wannabies who get rejected from Marqui next door, spend their evenings next door at glass. The convinient location allows the shame of not being able to gain access into Marqui, to be quickly dispersed... Apparently, the stage dancing girls who come out after midnight were declined employment at Marqui as well.
It's kind of like the creme-de-la-Hoboken meets Miami-chic ...
One of the worst places – One of the worst places I have ever been to. The door man was the nastiest guy i have ever encountered! he thinks he's the hottest bouncer when he desperately needs to buy a pair of shoes & iron his suit. How classy is it to drink a Bud Light behind a glass door when everyone can you? If it weren't for my friend's that were already in there, I would of never waited in line. The crowd was't good at all either! Not recommended at all!
For a good time, go to Glass. – I went to Glass for a friend?s birthday party last Saturday night. It was a really good experience!
I got there at 10PM. There was no line, so I was let in right away.
Reading some of the negative reviews, I?m surprised. The place actually seemed the opposite of what some people have said. The doorman was very, very nice. I?m an African Amercian woman. And I didn?t receive any discriminatory treatment. He checked my ID and let me in. He even chatted with me a bit later on. He seemed like a nice fellow.
The 3 bartenders were busy but friendly. I ordered the birthday girl a martini. And she said the drink was strong.
Some of the crowd did seem a bit aloof, but I didn?t mind because I was there to see my friends. I should be fair, though, and say two or three of the patrons did smile at us.
Overall, I highly recommend Glass. The atmosphere was a bit upscale but also relaxed.
The only real con is the lack of a proper dance floor. I would definitely go again.
Kind of reminded me of the Jetsons – This place is ok, I guess. I went here after a horrific experience at the nightmare next door called Marquee. There was no problem getting in, as the bouncers were relatively friendly, but NY standards anyway. You have to pay this cheesy $10 cover at the door and then you get this little drink coupon. So, in essence you're forced to buy a $10 drink to come in this place. I guess that's average prices for a bar, but...what if I just wanted a Diet Coke? Secondly, the crowd here is just WEIRD. Plus it's really small. And the second I was done with my drink, about five waitresses asked me if I needed another. Listen girls, there's no one at the bar, which is about 2 feet away from me - if I need another drink, I will go get one. Stop harassing the customers!
Great for Birthdays! – I had my birthday at Glass last weekend and had an amazing time! It was so easy to make a reservation and everyone in my group got in with no problem. The doorman is the nicest I've ever encountered. On the downside, the bathroom line was long and they didn't have a coatcheck (they said it would start next week). DJ was incredible and kept the place pumping all night! Overall, a great experience. I'm definitely recommending Glass to my friends!
Awesome Bathroom – I normally don't like the area BUT had to go because it was my friends birthday. I was on the guest list and they let me right in. At first the place wasn't that crowed (meaning easy to get drinks) BUT once there was a decent crowd it was nearly impossible to get drinks at the bar. Luckily you can order a drink from one of their "cocktail girls." Overall, the DJ was real good, the drinks were weak, and the bathroom was trippy..
Closed, gate down and everything! – Came with friends after calling to find out what time they open. They said 10pm and gave a run down of music they would play (hip hop and 80's on Wed night). Got there at 10:30pm. Doors were LOCKED. Waited till 11pm (maybe they made a mistake?). At 11, gates were pulled down over the whole lounge front. Yes, GATES. Very odd. Dreaded going to club in that area (pretentious, snoootie, yes what you've heard about next door neighbor is all true). Spoke to bouncer at Marquee and he seemed nice. Music for the night at Marquee would be rock upstairs and hip hop downstairs (again, wed night). So got in line. and waited. This is what people speak of when talking about feeling discriminated by race or class or just plain overlooked and invisible when going to clubs that think highly of themselves. I'm hispanic and she's black. I wore skinny jeans and a halter with an armani blazer (she's a skinny minnie, I'm a curves in good places girl 5 foot 7 in heels and about 135 lbs). We both work in finance, I'm 26 yrs old and have long curls. To boot, they let a couple behind in, and they were in the age range of 39 - 42. Man wore a business suit (lower level finance, not crisp mgmt suit) and woman wore a dress. Decided the people inside must be going through menopause anyway and we would be better off finding another spot. Overheard woman at door ask bouncer in reference to guys who were also trying to get in "should I tell them they should dress better or what?". She wasn't even kidding. Don't give them the satisfaction of being friendly till you step up to the door where they reject you. Anywhere other than a club it would be illegal to profile. :)
