NOT A CLASSY PLACE. A REAL DUMP

So to start out with i rsvp so my friends and i can get in free, and get the bottle of wine. Little did i know this place over books, and i mean really over books which i think is crazyness. My ppl and i got there way early to be sure we got a table the bouncer sabastian i believe was his name told us we had to wait for the rest of our party to get there to get our table "bull ". He told me that he will hol... view more

Not bad in Feb. 2010

I've been to Transit several times over the years and it's always been okay (not fabulous, just okay). Hadn't gone in a few years so I decided to go there for my 26th bday. It had a better deal than some other place. We got everything we were promised and Arthur (manager) made sure things were all good. I personally didn't have a problem that night so I'll probably go back again sometime. If you want street parking, ... view more

Worst Club Experience Ever!

We were promised free entrance til midnight which didn't happen! We even had text messages from 4FANTASTICOS that we tried to show but OSCAR (the front door bouncer) refused to let us in for free, and threatened to charge us $20 each if the text messages were forwarded...The damn text even said ""FORWARD TO FRIENDS PLZ"" at the bottom.!!!! 6 out of 9 of us paid anyway since our party bus left and we just wanted to ha... view more

the last time I will club at this DUMP

3-1-08 I was dancing and the owner came up and told me that he doesn't like the way I dance, "if you want to do that s**t go to the stripper club, not here" but then he PAYS these two girls that were almost naked dancing. To me they looked like Strippers and they CAN'T dance! My point is if he doesn't like anyone to dance on the pole that way, he should remove the damn pole! S**t anyone can go up and stand by it and ... view more

3rd time's the charm...?

The very first time I came to Transit was for NYE 2004/05. That night was a really fun night with champagne and all. The next time I came was for the Valentine's party that same year. This night, however, didn't go so well for reasons I don't remember (or don't care to remember). So when it was time to choose a spot to celebrate my birthday, I was pretty hesitant to choose Transit. I guess what did it for me (on... view more

Worst place ever!!!!!!!!!

Transit sucked last saturday 11-11-06. Had attended a bday party here in April, it was awesome. VIP area was actually VIP. We had a reserved spot in the marquee room, accesible with bracelet only. Had champagne toast, it was great. Not last sat. No reserved area, no bracelets, no nothing. Anyone could come and go as they pleased, that meant everyone had free open bar. When the birthday girl arrived for her party they... view more

Not so great a place anymore

Use to come here and the music and the crowd was great. Now it's crowded with guys standing around staring and couples that need to get a room. Music isn't so great anymore and people seem to like to stand on the dance floor. Not worth the cover. Management needs to clean the place up. Dress code is just casual. Valet also scratched the car. Don't bother to come here on a Saturday.
