You cannot go here or read a review without singing a bit of Barry Manilow. Go on - just hum it, you will start smiling. It was this club , not the beach in Brazil he was singing about. These days, it trades on the name not the venue, which has changed several times in its long history. I was... More

Visited due to an invite to a sponsored business party. Party took place on upper 3 levels. There were DJs on two of this levels, and nice street view from 1 of the levels. The food and drink offerings as part of the party were good. There is a restroom attendant.

The music was very good but everything else was a disaster, as soon as we got to the club entrance the "VIP" line was longer than the general admission line!!! Don't even bother getting the "VIP platinum" or any VIP package, a total rip off. The table service was horrible! Table was the size of a bedside table for 4... More

It's s very nice place to dance Salsa, Bachata and Merenge directly at the Times Square. The Salsa Club is in the 1st floor, in the ground floor is a bar/restaurant with latino disco music. Tip: to save the admission fee register at the website to get online tickets for free.

Stay away! I was invited to a private party at this club. The security guards bullied me on a cold rainy night. They had no clue about disabilities and service dogs. One pinned me against a wall for close to an hour. I had to call 911 and officers arrived and informed the guards and management of the club that... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
