Waste of Money and Time – This place is horrible place. We were about 25 people to celebrate my friend's B'day and thought may be it is really good place to go. But after getting in, we all felt that we made a mistake to come here. Overly crowded and people were wearing shorts, sneakers, and what ever. Do not spend your hard earned money.
Overhyped .... not worth paying a visit !!!! – This was my first visit to Pacha in NYC with my frnds. we had to pay an entry fee of $50 due some event at the club, which nobody knew really what the event was !!!
The drinks are way too costly here. Even a bottle of water is for 7 bucks.
Music played was techno, not that fun..... !!! Sounded like same music was being played over and over again.
The place was too much crowded.....! Its impossible to walk around with a drink in hand...and you are almost certain of spilling your drink on someone or yourself if you are that lucky !!!
and Beware..... lot of gals dancing around are trans-sexual males..... !!!! so watch out !!!
all and all, the placed seemed to me overhyped in NYC, I would suggest Webster would be better option ..if you are looking to have good time !!!
A lot of fun. – I've gone twice, and both times were for friends' birthdays so I've only dealt with the advanced line. We waited 10-15 minutes and then got right inside. Security wasn't bad, got patted down but no groping went on. First time around the security woman threw my gum out but it wasn't a big deal (I was drunk though - at that point all I cared about was getting inside to pee).
I paid $20 the first time, and $10 the second. I've only been on three floors so far: the main floor (electro/techno music), the "Funky Room" which apparently either has its own music (top 40/hip-hop) or music from the main floor, and Pachita (hip-hop). I had fun on all three.
The last time I went, the crowd was pretty good - a lot of well-dressed and decent people. However, you do have the exceptions since the dress code is actually kind of lax. A LOT of guys but that was okay - more choices for me. But with that said, some of them are creepy and/or aggressive. I was heading to the staircase up to Pachita and some guy grabbed my ass. By the time I turned around to react/snap at him, there were too many people between us.
Basically, find a way to get a cheaper cover price (to be honest, I'm not so sure if I'd be willing to pay $40, even though I did have mostly positive experiences there [then again, I'm a nearly broke college student]), go with people you know you'll have fun with, be open to meeting other people, pregame if necessary, and don't let little things ruin your night.
Downsides: When there are a lot of people, it gets really, really hot so you'll want some water to drink BUT regular plastic water bottles are $5; the guys can be grimy.
This is no PACHA IBIZA this is PACHA nasty version – If you are expecting that this place have the philosphy of PACHA IN IBIZA Spain YOUR WRONG,I know we are in NYC and theres so much attitud and drama, But this place their Doormans and Security staff is over the average and ass holes.
I paid 40 for get in but no before waiting 1 hour outside in summer at the door all this crap becouse DJ 'whatever' from Queens was in the decks.
Drinks?? jajajajaj let me tell you this I dont know where this people get that Bartender license, I gave the chance from the main floor to the third floor bar...ZERO NADA..I paid 15 for drinks + Tips to Ms ands Mr Bartender acctitud and dont even get buzz after drink 4 times.
Good Sound System, Sleezy Guys – Went to Pacha NY for the first time tonight and saw Will.I.AM. The music was great, the sound system rocks. The lighting was even awesome. In terms of music, it was totally worth it. If you want to go to a club for the experience, this is the one to go to, its massive!
I heard that the club cliental is mostly men, which is true, but a lot of the guys were really, REALLY grabby. I was not impressed. Just because I go to a club, does not give guys permission to grab my ass and crotch at will.
The drinks are really pricey, and they're nothing fancy. Also they don't give out free water, you have to buy a small $1 bottle for FIVE DOLLARS.
What a waste of time and money – 1st time I was there. But this place is shity place. They have 40 dollars cover so I thought may be it is really good place to go. But after getting in I feel that I made a mistake to come here.
Fellows this place is not worthed to go there and spend your hard working money.
So there are lot of other places in the village for fun and much better then this bar.
Phenomenal Night. Highly recommended. – So I was in new york for the weekend, and someone suggested that i try out the pacha. I am so glad i did. I got there a little bit early, there were only about 30 people on all the floors combined, so i just went down to the main dance floor and started drinking.
Around 1130 or midnight it really started getting busy there. Hundreds of people. Judge Jules was the DJ of the night for the dance floor, and he did a fantastic job. There was another dj on the floor below, but i didnt spend enough time down there to comment on it. As for the dance floor though. Amazing time. The music was loud, the music was hot. The crowd was very friendly. No one gets pissed if you bump into them or accidentally step on their feet while dancing. There are the ass-grabber people (I was one of them) but that comes with any bar/club environment. What can you expect when you get people drinking. This club seemed like a good place to go to hook up and have a good night, but beware: The guy to girl ratio is not equal at all. bout 70% males, 30% females. If you dont have game, you might not want to go for that reason.
But thats enough of that. Go to the club, decide for yourself. 30$ cover charge for guys though (not sure about the ladies). Personally, it was the best i've ever been to.
Not even worth considering – Pacha is not a NICE club/bar scene at all. It attracts a crowd that lacks any substance.
We went on a Friday night ( not my choice -we were dragged there by visiting friends). It was packed full of 18-yr old kids who were trying too hard to impress, smoking in the club, and some disrespectful patrons who felt the need to grab our friend's ass as she walked by. We left (out the back entrance) after 10 minutes and went to the Meatpacking District where we had great time.
If you like this type crowd, then go. But any guy that brings his lady here is asking to be an idiot for the night.
Once you enter you'll find it to be a dirty building that is falling apart.
Advice to get into Pacha – Last night had planned special date with a friend of mine and went to PACHA...but was disappointed..the doors were closed and we could not get in..........we were there by 10 30....(I go confess both of us were first-time-club-goers)...anyone can tell me how to go about it..want to go there this saturday again....HELP HELP HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great time, music, crowd – First time to New York, had to see Pacha as i heard about it when i was in Barcelona Spain. First of all I wanna say that its experience will be different for everyone, i may love it you may hate it for different reasons. Before i came to New York i read many reviews about Pacha and Cielo night clubs and was a bit concerned about getting in, as many say its hard and bouncers are pretty rough at times. When we got there (me and my wife we'r early 30's) at around 23:30 on Friday there were not more than 10-20 people in line and we got to the front in minutes. Guy at the door asked us for ID my wife had her drivers license and i had no ids as i figured i dont look younger than 30 for sure but i guess its not just age that they look at so we were turned away... Came back around same time next day on Saturday, showed our IDs got in got searched pretty thoroughly went upstairs i told the girl i was on a list, she asked what list i said a web list on the web site she gave me 2 green tickets and said to go to pay at the box office 5 feet away, payed $20 for 2 of us, went inside. Smokes are $15 a pack. Right from the start we loved it, music was nice and the more drinks we had it sounded even better. Regular vodka+cranberry $10 i also got Red Devil later on for $14. A bit too crowded but people don't mind when you walk by and may accidentally bump into them. Nice touch go-go dancers... We especially enjoyed watching groups of good dancers who got into circles one by one or in pairs danced in the circle really good. In all we had a blast, didn't wanna leave. When we got a bit tired we just went right into this area where there were bunch or couches with little tables around, i guess some sort of VIP area but i didn't care i just went in and crashed for like 15 minutes, no one said anything.
