They Can't be serious. competitive prices should serve competition. My 20 plus dollar drink that tastes like a$$ is something I just couldn't swallow. I then order from the wine list. One would think 100 would get you past airplane quality but one would be wrong. Then I hear price is because my cocktail waitress, no our cocktail waitress-- as in the only one cocktail waitress, is wearing Yves St. Laurant. Umm.. okay great now where the heck is she? And more importantly why exactly couldn't we afford a somelier? Upon arrival I witnessed a guy send back wineglass after wineglass. I thought he was just being picky. Then I tried to swallow the acid juice from a shabby looking, dingy colored, wine glass and completely understood. A friend tries to point out the one redeeming quality and says, 'but they have quality art work.' Well anyone who doesn't think 20 plus for a crappy cocktail isn't a lot has got this art at home. Now don't get me wrong-I love spending money, cocktails and couture. I love exclusivity like any other New Yorker B8 D7 go getter. But this place rots.
Home to me. I don't know why everyone is so down on this place. I never get bothered for autographs, I know lot's of peeps here. I'm always welcomed, great drinks..Nobody bothers me when I'm here. I will go many more times, and thank God the security is tight.
Go if you love Bob Saget.
To be fair, I was dragged here reluctantly by a friend who was visiting from out of town. She didn't realize the place had been "fixed up" by Ian Schrager, and I figured, "well, why not?"
The room is nicely done up. Not too loud, but lively. The crowd was attractive. Bob Saget was in da house, which must be a draw for someone out there. There's nothing really wrong with the place, if you have unlimited money and a taste for the goony trappings that come with aspirations to white-hot hipness. I guess I personally can't deal with a $20 cocktail that's not exceptionally made, not exceptionally huge, and indifferently served by a half-naked "model." How about a $12 drink and you give our waitress her clothes back? I'm kidding, obviously. They're smart to tack on a 20% service charge, though: I was only going to tip 18% unless our server took her top off, too.
On our way out, "security" was manning every door with their little earpieces, making sure we didn't go out the wrong way. I thought maybe the president was in town, but I think it's just the normal over-the-top show of force.
Just not quite for me. But all you Bob Saget lovers out there, go for it.
Skip it!!!. Went there to meet a friend but didn't realize you had to make a reservation for a bar. Ian Schrager (sp?) has officially lost his mind. I'm sure the space is lovely and everyone in there is "super-hip" but alas, I will never know because I died of pneumonia after having to wait outside the enchanted glass vestibule in 20 degree weather. Thanks guys!! You rock!
don't be haters. Don't be haters, people. This is a hot space and if you've got it, you're in. And when you're in, the place is fckin hot. So pick the place where you feel comfortble and focus on that. Don't be hating a place just because its not you.
thanx a million. i've never been to this place....but after reading the comments... al never will.... and for the record i spend real money when i go so they just lost a good client.............. thanx commentors it really help.........
ummmm ... rip off!. so, the spot is nice as far as decor is concerned. staff is alright - however overall i aint going back! first off i tried to go to the room in the back which is supposedly another bar (reservation / invite only) all good, couldnt get in as i didnt know so stayed in cramped front area as the back area stayed half empty all night ??? stayed standing for 3 hours drinking with my date before leaving around midnight. asked for the bill 6 drinks in (grey goose and tonic) and the bill was $114 !!!! WOW!!! i asked for verification, it was correct ladies and gentlmen - $19 basic drink! That's a new high for me! i was expecting a high priced drink of around $11ish. So i tipped the 20% i always do - and will never go back. I felt robbed!
Rude rude rude. I went there once with friends when it first opened. Even before it had any buzz, they kept a 'reserved' sign on the tables. Recently I decided to go back. I wrote to them 3 times to make a reservation for drinks, well in advance. They sent an automatic response saying they'd get back to me if there was room. Never heard back from them. Then I called to speak to the manager. He was busy, so I left a message. I never heard back from him either. To be fair, it's an interesting environment to have a drink. But there are too many other fabulous places in this city for people to frequent to treat customers this shabbily. Will not go back there.
The luxurious boutique hotel on the perimeter of Manhattan's famed Gramercy Park is also just steps away from bustling Union Square..
Ian Schrager may be best known for Studio 54, but ever since disco burned out he's been redefining the hotel experience with "home away from home" principles. The hotel's rooms feature curated photography on the walls and extensive CD/DVD selections for in-room entertainment. There are 185 guest rooms, ranging from the 220-square-foot superior rooms to the 1,987-square-foot penthouse. All feature 400-thread count Italian linens, mahogany wood bathrooms and fresh flowers.
Yet another NY spot spoilt by the bad attitude staff. Isn't it time that these kind of establishments that invest so much in the decor, learn how to hire staff with manners? NY has so many fabulous places that are not worth experiencing ever again just because one has had to deal with some "chip on the shoulder" wanna be waiter, doorman, receptionist or bathroom assistant whose manners seem to escape them in the such surroundings. I brought 6 very important clients from out of town to the Rose bar in the hopes of impressing them with a Stylish New York bar. Well never again! They were absolutley horrified by the bad manners and rudeness of all the staff they encountered. It was really embarrassing for me as their host, trying to explain why service that America is supposedly so good at, is so appauling and filled with attitude in this kind of a 5 star hotel. Stop hiring people with attitude and no manners. Gracious hospitality is far more classy than abrupt rude egotistical nobodies who are at the end of the day are really only the "staff". Its so passe and really ruins the image of what could have been a nice hotel.
