I've never been more disgusted with a bar in my life and I've been to hundreds of them due to work.
Unfortunately, I went here recently and some dbag at the bar started a fight with my friend for no reason. It took security way too long to break up the fight. Eventually, they restrained the guy and allowed him to attack my friend again because he wasn't immediately thrown out. Both of my friend's shirts were ripped in the process, he lost one of his contact lenses, he cut his hand on one of the broken glasses, and he was punched in the face. Due to the IMCOMPETENT SECURITY and POOR DOOR CONTROL, the Ace Hotel is an UNSAFE ENVIRONMENT. If only the MADNESS ended there...but it DOESN'T!
My friends and I were there as a group and collectively spent a few hundred dollars at the bar, but were basically told to leave after the incident. The best part of the story is that ONE OF THE BARTENDERS/SERVERS CHANGED THE TIP AND TOTAL AMOUNTS ON MY RECEIPT AFTER I SIGNED IT. I just checked my credit card statement online and saw the fraudulent charges. 3 of the people I was there with are attorneys, including the guy who was punched. If you steal money from someone, what do you think happens to you?
