I just wanted to say a big thank you to Vero & Marion at Event Premiere, Inc. for organising some top nights out at Pink Elephant, Mansion (M2) and Marquee.
Having recently moved to Manhattan from London, I was keen to check out the club scene. I contacted Vero and she went to a lot of trouble to ensure my party had fun and that there was no hassle at the door.
Whether you are going out in a small or large group, and whether you require guestlist admission or bottles/table service, they will take care of you.
Thanks again for everything. My friends and I look forward to many more excellent nights.
If you want to try some of the most exclusive clubs in Manhattan, give Vero a call or text on 917 569 0979.

Mansion is a great club with a very tough door policy... if you don't get in with a promoter, you will have to pay the 25 dollars cover charge.
If you meet Marion and Vero at 12 sharp you can avoid to pay the cover . They will walk you in no cover by the small door (on the right side). You can text Marion at 917 557 5787 to rsvp.

I also went to Mansion on New Years Eve and it was awful. It didn't dawn on me until after I bought my ticket online that ANYONE could buy a ticket which meant that the normal crowd would not be there. Getting in was fast. Cost check was crowded but went pretty fast too. Once you got through the tunnel to get to the dance floor you couldn't move. The bar was 6 deep. So, much for open bar when you can't even get to the bar. All of the bartenders kept asking everyone, ""you're going tip me right? you're gonna give me a big tip."" It's open bar, just serve the drinks and do your job. Other areas, like the smaller bar down stairs was blocked of because you need a special ticket to get in there. It was sooooo packed. I'm talking fire hazard packed. If FDNY came by it would have got shut down. There was a guy that was bothering me all night, trying to get me to dance, grabing my arm, etc. and the bouncers did nothing. I saw 2 people throwing up on the dance floor! Is this a frat party or a Club in NYC? And the bouncers gave them buckets to do it in. How about you kick them out if they can't handle their liquor?! The night was a mess and it was obvious that the staff didn't care because they already got their money from our pre-paid tickets. I also found out from a bouncer that the owners of Mansion sold the night to a promotions company and it was the promotions company that over sold the tickets to anyone and everyone. So, don't judge Mansion by this night. But Mansion, come on, you should be worried about your reputation and how awful this night was and how many people are going to have bad thoughts about your club because of a night that you had nothing to do with. Mansion, if you want to stay relevent, you need to step it up.
Entering the club and making it to coat check was probably the only thing good about Mansion. We did not wait long at the entrance and had no difficulty checking in and retrieving our coats HOWEVER the rest of the night was a disaster. After paying an obscene price for an open bar+admission, bartenders would not serve patrons until they waived around $20 bills as a tip. After getting your $20 beer you would be shuffled to the back area of the club near the 2nd mens bathroom where you could find over 20 people SMOKING INDOORS. I approached a bouncer and asked him to handle the situation, he explained that the management allows it. When I finally ran into a woman who was with management she said that they can not stop people from bringing in cigarettes and smoking. Correct me if I am wrong, but smoking in NYC was BANNED YEARS AGO.
If you think that was the worst part of the night...it was actually being SMOTHERED and PINNED onto the walls and into other people by Mansion escorts that would waive flashlights and then body slam you to move out of the way. Where are we to go when you over sell and pack people in worse than the E train?! Myself and others had become distraught by being smacked in the face and not being able to breathe that we exited Mansion at 12:30am.
I am certain that if there were a fire or emergency at Mansion that people would be trapped. I will never in my life return to this establishment and hope that NYC will do something to make sure no one else can return there as well.
The venue itself is decent. However, the club allows smoking indoors. If you are familiar with NYC regulations, indoor smoking has been banned for quite some time. During a recent party I went to, there were at least 12-18 people smoking near the bar. When I confronted the bouncer about it, he said ""management allows it."" When I confronted a woman who was seemingly with management, she said ""if it bothers you that much, call 911."" When I called Mansion a few days later, the woman who answered the phone acknowledged it was a recurring problem but ""the City (New York) doesn't' do much about it.""
It is unbelievable that smoking would be allowed. It is a sick, disgusting, vile habit that often does more damage to those people inhaling secondhand smoke than the smoker itself.
Other issues with the venue included serious overcrowded, rude staff, and selfish bartenders who refused to serve you during open bar unless you gave them a $20+ tip.

i also paid $160 to get into the mezzaine section. The only good part about that was although it was still very crowded there, you werent physically being smushed by all the bodies surrounded you in the general area. The bar was not planned out well at all, there were only 4 bartenders who could not keep up with all the people. I paid $160 for an open bar and deffinitely did not get that. after waiting 1/2 an hour to get drinks i had to hold my ""tip"" money out so the bartenders could see. even though the girl next to me had been waiting at least 10 min longer than i had she only had a couple singles in her hand and i had a 20. bartender comes up to me takes my $20 ""tip money"" and says ""you can get 4 drinks for that."" i would deffinitely not go back ever again. it was overcrowded, misleading ""open bar"", rude employees, and a bunch of fights broke out also.
First of all, I paid $160 to get in for the private mezzanine VIP access for New Years Eve. When I got there the place was SO packed, no one could move, you were stuck standing in their hallway for a half hour. Fighting to get to their ONE bar was ridiculous. You had to wait at least 40 minutes to get a drink and to catch the attention of the four bartenders who were serving and who would only serve you if you were holding out a $20 or higher (when I already paid $160 just to get in!). Also the ""VIP"" mezzanine did not even have its' own bar, so I really paid an extra $50 to have access to another packed floor. The people who worked there were rude and not helpful. Even on a regular night, I would never go back. The venue itself is aesthetically okay, but there really is no dance floor. This place is not worth it. There are better clubs!!!
This is the worst place I've ever been to - twice. The first time I thought it was a fluke - a famous DJ was playing and we had to pay a $60 cover charge for crappy house music and I got three drinks spilled on me by drunk people. The second time my guy and I brought two girl friends here for New Years Eve and it was a bunch of B&T people. One of my friends almost got punched during a random fight and someone else threw ice that resulted in a huge bump on my forehead while I was innocently dancing. Not to mention that there were over 8 people working coatcheck and only 4 bartenders for the one bar, but I actually saw one bitchy bartender throw two $1 bills back at a patron who ordered two drinks (which are supposed to free after the $150 tickets!) and start yelling at them and the crowd saying ""they don't work for free"" and ""show them who wants drinks"" after I'd been holding out a $20 for half an hour and I'm a girl! Suddenly I get service. This place had to be in gross violation of the fire code, there were no good guys (agree my single girls), and this was the worst service and music I've ever had. I would not go back were someone paying for the whole night. This has to be one of the worst clubs I've ever been to.

I am very discerning when it comes to clubs but I love this place!!!!! The architecture inside and the way it is made is beautiful!!! The music is great, I was dancing all night long. And there are two rooms so if you like hip hop or mainstream you can have that but if you like trance, dance, techno you can have that too!
The bouncer (the dominican one with the beard) and people at the door are realllly nice. They are selective but very courteous and respectful.
I had sooooooo much fun. The crowd is mixed and good looking. Can't wait to go again!
