The worst, I am from out of town and was looking to have fun. Took a taxi to this dive and it wasn't open yet, waited around for an hour at a bar down the street . When they finally opened drinks are expensive and tasted horrible, staff was very rude and unwelcoming . Please don't waste your time here unless your an uptight jerk with a frown on you face and think you better than everyone!

Great new spot for reggae parties - 2nd Friday of each month

Don Hill's came alive with the energy and infectious pulse of Reggae music when the REGGAEHOLICS dance parties started in July 2009. A multi-cultural and multi-racial crowd packs the place the 2nd Friday night of every month for the celebration. Everyone seems to have a great time. The show features jamming, high energy Reggae sets by renown underground turntable masters, and occasionally live performances by established and up and coming artists. Admission is reasonably priced, with frequent discount perks, drinks specials, groups and party offers. Don Hill's Rocks on Reggae nights!

One of the things that are overpraised.

I would say, this place is just an average club. Yes, I admit, the equipment is quite good and sound is cool, but let me regard people who work there: I would pretty much agree with the majority of people who went there with me - the staff is rude and really careless of their visitors/customers, so be aware of it if you plan to go.

BAD experience

I am in a band and was very excited about the opportunity to play at this well known club. We had heard some bad things about the club prior to the show (the door guy has a reputation for being an a##hole) but we figured it didn't matter and tried to stay positive. When we arrived, we were impressed with the big stage and high-quality sound equipment. But...the people were rude. Drinks were overpriced, even for NYC - $9 for a Washington Apple with hardly any alcohol). They had the set times for the bands screwed up and we were told to go on suddenly, without warning. We didn't get a sound check or a line check, just some rude comments from the sound guy rushing us to play. We were treated poorly by the sound guy, who was rude, inattentive and did an inadequate job. We had to use their equipment, which malfunctioned during the show, and we received no help from the staff to fix it, which was very awkward and unprofessional. Their electricity was not grounded properly and I got shocked from the microphone. The sound guy did such a lackluster job that my friend approached him twice during the show and asked if he realized that obviously something was wrong, and the sound guy almost punched my friend! After our performance, we were rushed off the stage and we did not get paid, as the discourteous door guy informed us that we had to bring a minimum of 30 PEOPLE to the show to get paid, which is not true. We left immediately after we finished with a bad taste in our mouths from the awful experience. We will never play at Don Hill's again. Such a shame because the stage and venue were very impressive. They had enough lights and sound equipment for an arena in there, and when we first walked inside, we got very excited (they even had a fog machine). Too bad the sound guy did not pay attention and did not know how to use such an impressive setup the way it was meant to be used.

Great atmosphere on the right nights

This bar is a NY institution. The likes of Courtney Love and Alice and Chains play here unannounced. Don is the coolest guy I ever met and the bartenders make STRONG drinks. This is a GREAT place to see a band. I'm never disappointed here.

Only 2 good things to say

1 - the great band, The Ropes played there (they ROCK) and they have a POLE! :) Other than that, the people were rude, the place was kinda creepy and I just was not impressed...

""No club for you!""

Go to Don Hills if you want to pay 30.00 per couple only to get cursed out by the bouncer for asking for your change.
Go to Don Hills if you want to have your money thrown back at you and get rejected at the door for no apparent reason.
There's a bouncer nazi working right here in our great city and he is looking for more innocent people to take his agression out on so if you're into that like of thing, then this is your club.

What is happening?

For the last several weeks, the great crowd and vibe that made Thursday so great has been missing. One time it was packed at 11:30, who gets there before midnight? Hopefully the old crowd will return and bring back the magic.

I went here totally randomly and thought it was actually really fun. The live bands are definitely worth a listen, and, since the place is pretty small (but not too crowded) we were able to chat with the bands after their performances. The staff was great, but maybe with the exception of one surprisingly self-righteous cocktail waitress who actually took my half-empty drink and poured cigarette ashes into it before carting it away... Charming, sure. Bad attitiude? Aww yeah. Seriously. Stay away from her, order from the bar, and you'll have a great time.

Great place

The music was great 80's new wave and my friends and I danced our asses off all night long! The bathroom lines were a bit ridiculous, but the fact that we managed to score a table with waitress service made up for it. Good place; I'd totally go back.
