WORST NYE EXPERIENCE EVER – getting into the club with my VIP ticket was not a problem. checking my coat was not a problem. getting drinks was not a problem. having somewhere to dance for hours was not a problem. HOWEVER...my friends and i tried to leave the club and all hell broke loose. bouncers forced us outside when we were trying to retreive our coats. 3 of us stood outside, coatless in january, for an HOUR, as we are being continuously yelled at by bouncers to stand here, stand there, you can't stand over there...our 1 friend who had the coat check ticket had the same problem with being bullied by bouncers only on the inside. after they realized they were forcing people out of the club who hadn't gotten there coats yet, they made us all line up to get back inside. THEY WERE LETTING IN PAYING CUSTOMERS BUT LEAVING THE COATLESS PEOPLE OUTSIDE TO WAIT IN THE COLD. so, when our friend finally got up to the coat check counter, there was ONE person getting coats...ONE. for a mass of hundreds of people. then he handed the chick his ticket and she said they messed up the tickets and to have him describe his coat to her!! no wonder it was taking so damn long!! all in all, it was a disaster. none of the bouncers were coordinating with each other and we were being yelled at by several to do different things. i had to wait outside in the cold in a tank top waiting for my coat which the coat checkers had screwed up the whole system and there were so many people it was pandemonium. touch might be ok on any other night, but NOT NYE. don't waste your money.
Avoid like the plague.... – Moved to the city recently and wanted to hang out at a nice spot right before Christmas. The advertisement about Fatman Scoop was a lie to start the night off. From then on everything went downhill. Young greasy haired kids, dry humping in the corner, expensive drinks with OVER $50 in unauthorized charges that I now need to go to Chase Bank to reconcile....sigh! This place is a pile of hot steamy $#!t.
Waste of Time!!! – myself, some friends and 1000 others were on the Touch VIP Guest List. We arrived somewhat early, waited in line for an hour in the "VIP Line" and were then told that the Guest List was now closed and instructed to move to the "Paying Customer Line" and we would be charged $40 after we moved to the END of the other line and waited in that line (for what would have been at least another hour). We had some good looking girls, we were alldressed up and still they were very disrespectful. Never made it inside and don't plan on going back ever.....
Will not recommend Touch to any of my friends!! – I went to this place about a year ago and it was just OK, but I just went there again for the second time this weekend and OMG it sucked! the staff was rude, the drinks were expensive and not good at all!!! but the worse part of it was the crowd, they say this is supposed to be and upscale club well this place is know where near upscale, I will define it as trashy there were fights all through the night, it was like going to a club with a bunch of high school kids..I will never ever go there again!!!!
Shady place, had one of the worst treatment – has run through about 5 owners in the last 6 years & it shows. the security is extremely shady & will try to skim as much money off of patrons as possible.
Bottom of the barrel club experience – If you want to learn the definition of bridge and tunnel by all means yes, otherwise stay away. My only consolation is that I did not have to pay to get in since we were in the "VIP" section for a birthday party. Yeah we were special alright..I was privileged to actually get caught in the middle of a fight.
Make sure you bring plenty cash; they'll charge a 20% tip if you use a credit card to pay for drinks, that is obviously more than what I wanted to pay per drink. The DJ is terrible, it's like a bad mixed tape from the 80's since he plays a song for 10 seconds then switches to another song, completely random in style and rhythm.
I usually don't go to clubs anyways, but this one is really at the bottom of the list if I ever go to one again.
Been to 30+ Club this is the Worst ONE – My girlfriends were having a birthday and we were there at 10:30, PEOPLE THE REASON WHY THE LINES ARE LONG IS BECAUSE THEY DONT' MOVE PEOPLE IN UNTIL 11PM AND IT IS FREEZING OUTSIDE@@@@@
My girlfriends got in for free but the guys could not get in for free, we even called earlier and they said since we are on the Bday guestlist guys can get in for free at 12 and when we got at the door they lied straight to our faces.
So the guys just paid $20 to get in and it was so not worth it, the place is small and the music wasn't even that good, to make it worst some of my friends got here at 12:15 and they didn't get in until 12:50 and there was only 20 people in front of them!! They just want to make it look like this place is all that but its not!!! If you want to wait on line, get lied to your face and you enjoy the freezing cold come to this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cleaning throughout the club - ruins ambiance – The music was great but the greatest distraction was their clean-up crew constantly meandering through the crowd with their pen lights looking for a mess to clean up. I don't want to feel a dirty, wet mop on my leg! Gross.
Seriously though, I have never seen this done in any other club. The mop-guy shined his light indirectly (not at their faces obviously) at a couple making out and just stared at them watching. Kinda creepy. It was really annoying. Why would you feel the need to clean the club while people are partying? Okay maybe once every 2 hours do a sweep if you don't want people falling but their cleaners were constantly milling.
We arrived a little after midnight and it was $20 cover for everybody except the bride-to-be (she was free). And it's $4 coat check. Line was about a 10 minute wait and it was not worth it.
Asians get no love.
Agree with a previous reviewer about racial profiling. I think this club just hates Asians.
Came with a huge group to have fun on Oct. 30th. Biggest problem: the DJ. No songs were particularly well mixed or good and none lasted more than 2 minutes before he started shouting, "Latinos in the house make some noise ..." or "Brooklyn in the house make some noise ..."
He goes on and on and on. People just want to dance and enjoy themselves! But he was like a Nazi ordering everyone to shout because he wanted us to. And while he shouted out to every race group, White, Black, Latino ... he purposely missed Asian, and a huge group of us were there to spend money and to try to have a good time. Thanks for ruining it, bub.
One guy commented that he'd been to clubs where he was the only white guy and the DJ was nice and included everyone.
This DJ was the worst ever! We didn't stay more than an hour before we happily left, never to return.
BEST CLUB IN NYC! – ALL THE PARTIES ARE GREAT ON ALL NIGHTS. AMAZING STAFF. GREAT MUSIC AND ATMOSPHERE. A MUST IF VISITING NY:)
