If anyone has been overcharged on there credit card by Duvet NYC. Don't fret the owners are the daughters of Mr Belkin. Of Belkin wireless. The owners are great people. Management on the other hand was shady. Feel bad for how much Carlos stole from them. But it'll all come to him 3 fold. Karmas a bitch
Beware of your Credit Card Charges – I was at Duvet on Saturday, 11/22/09 and today I checked my bank statement and realized they posted two charges. My drinks came to a total of $28.00 and I see two charges, one for $50 and another for $100. I called and they were closed but they have not heard the last of me! I know the economy is bad but geez! The $30 bucks or so they charge a head to get into the joint is not enough? They gotta rob you blind by adding extra charges onto your bill? This is clearly fraud.
Great venue, great music & great times – I'm not sure if I should trust all these negative comments that I see for Duvet because ppl who are having a good time don't usually take the time to write reviews. I mean if the club disses you because you don't adhere to the dresscode, is that not your fault? These same ppl who got "dissed" and will stop at nothing to write complaints about the venue.
I went with 3 of my girls and the line was really long -at first. But it moved rather quickly and we got inside for free before 12am and the party was already rockin! Drinks were around $12 which is the norm and we partied til the break of dawn! There were ppl on the beds, on the dance floor, around the huge bar and on the stage dancing like there was no tomorrow. I had a great time and enjoyed the vibes!
I'm not quite sure what these negative comments are coming from but if you're not having a good time then don't deflamate the club...blame yourselves!
Frankly, it sucked – Damn it, this place was all bad.
I'm visiting nyc from san fran, this place sounded like it had a unique idea, so we gave it a shot. We had 4 guys and 3 girls. If you have no girls then you have to buy bottles. We arrived at 10:15, we got in by 11, that's okay. The bed idea is cool but duvet really dropped the ball, their sheets are dirty and ripped, not cool. i opened a tab and had a good time drinking, the drinks were okay. At the end of the night they billed me for items i did not buy, they wouldn't listen to me and threated to call the police, which was okay with me, but i had to fly back to sf in the morning and they wouldn't return my ID without me signing the bill, so i signed. Plus they added an extra 20% gratuity charge. My $150 worth of drinks turned into $250, fail. Now for the pro/con breakdown...
- The door guy was nice. oddly he let the guys in before the girls, hah, never had that happen before but i'll take it.
- outside in line: Semi-long wait
- Music: the dj was simply bad. there was no rhythm, the genres bounced around at random from dance to hiphop to dance back to reggae. At some points people stopped dancing because we had all lost our groove.
- Decor: No jellyfish in their tank like they say they have. Bed sheets are definitely not white, it's a little gross.
- Service: the wait time for drinks was okay, 5 minutes. At the end of the night i saw that they charged me for drinks that i did not order, plus added a 20% gratuity tax at the end of the night. BEWARE: if you open a tab they will add a gratuity tax and possibly add drinks to your bill; i have talked to several people now that have had this happen. On top of this my bank statement now shows that they are trying to charge double what the bill says. 2 major fails! Unforntunately i'm forced to file complaints with the credit card company and B B B.
- This place is nothing, it's below average in every catagory, it's litterally a waste of time plus a little risky because of their billing shadiness.
If anyone else has had them add bogus drinks or falsify your bill, please contact me.
MOST UNIQUE VENUE IN NYC! – DUVET is one of the best parties I've ever been to in a long time! I mean, what club in NYC has beds as its tables? It's a totally unique experience! My girls & I went this past Saturday through a promoter called "theKONGLIST" and next thing you know, we all kicked-off our shoes and were jumping up & down on beds all night long! There's a huge bar that looks like blocks of ice, awesome music being spun by interchanging DJ's & a beautiful "mixed" crowd...DUVET is one of hottest parties I've been to in a long time!!
fun at first, but then you get overcharged on your bill – I had heard so much about this place, and I finally went. I was having fun, I mean first you have to make it past the bouncer, he yells at everyone, and is extremely rude. We were sitting VIP and even though we had paid hundreds of dollars the staff barely came back to help. On top of that, they automatically include gratuity (20%--and they include that on drinks even if you buy ONE beer at the bar) and a couple of people in my group failed to see that and ended up leaving tips in addition to gratuity. They tried to call to get their money back and no one was willing to listen. This place will scam you. Don't be fooled by thinking their drinks are cheaper. By including 20% gratuity, it's the same as everywhere else!
Dance ALL Night Long – I have been to Duvet several times with my friends and every time we go we have a great time! The atmosphere is just FUN! When you walk in you see all these lights and this amazingly beautiful bar and hear this music and you feel like it's pumping through your body. All you want to do is dance! And that's exactly what we did all night. We were drinking and dancing all night. We had the best time!
Partying on BEDS rocks! – door guy freddy totally hooked up and my girls up.The music was insane. i couldnt stop dancing. we got so drink so quick cause the drinks were cheap lol. def a good spot. Also the females were uber HOT!
Staff untrained – While visiting NYC, June '09; we wanted to go to an upscale club in the city. A friend had gotten us passes for Duvet. We were given the run around while at least 15 different staff members repeatedly told us to “wait here, I'll have to check”. For passes that guaranteed us "no line" we were told we had to stand in line. Our passes also gave us 1 hour open bar...again more than one person had to be asked and we were given a vodka drink that either had no liquor at all or was noticeably watered down. Upon entrance, ecurity had taken away a pair of eyebrow tweezers which I had been told I would get back when I left. When we tried to leave out of doors clearly marked EXIT, we were chased and rudely pointed to another door. I asked for my property to be returned as I had been told. I was told everything from just NO to that stuff has been thrown away already, again by about 10 different staff members, each one with a different story. One of my party was able to re enter via the street entrance and security that had taken the items did try to give us back our property (which had not been thrown away) but did not give back the right items and by the time we realized, it was too late.
Management needs to get their act together: not every patron is brainless or too inebriated to not care about being mistreated.
Club Duvet is the Worst! – I went to club duvet for my last night out with 9 other friends. We went through a website called NYLastNightOut. The website is suppose to give you a hour pole dancing class, a nice limo and the rest of the night at any club you choose. Well I chose club Duvet. And let me tell you those men made me feel like the bottom of their shoes. Dirt. First I go to the front of the line, because I paid the website in full to have VIP entrance. I gave the bouncer the name of the lady the Limo guy told me to. But it's like as soon as he seen me and the girls walking up, he started yelling, all VIP entrances is closed, we're not excepting big groups. All I can think of is Y? I already paid. So I go to the bouncer and I ask him, why can't we get in I paid my money for this? He yelled and said, get off the line, you're not getting in- go stand over there! I was just in shock. Could not believe someone could be so nasty. Mind you I had on my girl last night out boa, the crown, with the veil. How could you treat a bride-to-be like that on her last night out?? Bottom line, I never got in, never got an apology, from the limo guy, from the people from the website, or my money!!!! So don't waist your time on a club like that when there are so many more in NYC!
