Art Deco Jazz in Hipster Heaven

AccessGotham pulled off an amazing night booking my last minute party here free.
Those guys are the best. They also got us a free bottle service of tasty Merlot with a tinge of blackberry sweetness. My crowd could not get over the Roaring 20?s speakeasy style of this hipster lounge. Art deco chandeliers and a checkered floor played off Clark Gable?s stare and Channel prints. I listened to the casual sounds of smooth jazz in the piano bar as the work week disappeared into the dista

Sexy and Vivacious Party

Expect a strong, sexy and vivacious party here on New Years Eve. Lets welcome in 2011 in speakeasy style. Quench your thirst during the 5 Hours of Open Bar and partake in a Champagne toast with us at midnight. You'll also receive complimentary admission to the After Party @ Kiss & Fly. \r

Hipster Lounge!

My friends and I went here for my 21st birthday. We all had a wonderful evening and the service at Ella was splendid.

We booked our party through AccessGotham. com and they were quite helpful at planning our evening. They ensured that everyone would get in with zero hassles and free cover.

Ella was a very cool hipster lounge and had such a downtown feel! This is definitely one of the coolest venues NYC has to offer!

sexy vibe

Not a huge fan of clubs but this place was really sweet inside with the clack and white paisley type wallpaper. lot of dance music, tons of hot guys, fun atmosphere, but a bit overcrowded.\r
Definitely go here at least once.

So Many Bad Reviews

It looks like every time you see a bad review, there is some strange glowing rave about this sad place. Obviously, people associated with the bar are trying to increase the rating. Pathetic.

Simply Pathetic

This place is simply pathetic. Wannabe club on Avenue A that thinks it's in Meatpacking, except doesn't have the patronage or quality to back up it's self-image.

We were forced to come here by a friend at 2am. Arrived and were promptly turned away by a bitchy door boy who didn't even bother to turn around and face us. A minute later they opened the rope for a crew of 5 overweight balding guidos wearing greasy undershirts and acted like they were Lindsay Lohan's entourage.

...view moreour friend comes out and begs them to let us in, they try to push her out of the way, then finally let us in. I am telling you we spent no more than a MINUTE AND A HALF inside. Walked in, saw that there were 8 people in there, turned around and walked out laughing. Pathetic.view less

Great Place to Dance and Drink

I went for a friends birthday with a bunch of people. I didn't know too many of them but we had a blast. The music (and alcohol) forced us to dance all night. We all said we would go back for sure.

Choose this lounge for my bachlorette party this past saturday. The waitress Sosh was rude to me and was rolling her eyes when we asked her twice for soda. And then of course it took her an hour to get it to us. The manager Adam was rude doesnt know what customer service is. We had spoken to them previously and bought a table. They jacked up the price by 100$ for the bottles that night and added on a 20% gratuity for the horrible service the waitress gave us with out telling us any of ...view morethis in advance, and lying about the prices! I wouldnt have given her a decent tip for her poor service. The DJ would not take requests and played HORRIBLE music all night. Like Sunshiny day and elevator music. Overall this place was TERRIBLE. I feel so bad that we picked this place for my one memorable night, when we could have gone to a million better places in NYC! I am SORRY I WENT THERE. HIGHLY UNRECOMMENDED!view less

amazing fun

i went to ella the other night with a few of my friends and we had an amazing time! granted, they were a little selective at the door... but that only makes for a better crowd inside. ive already gone back a good few times. ive seen the other reviews and yes, this bar is different that all the other bars on the lower east side, its a breath of fresh air. finally somewhere near my house, with a good atmosphere, a great crowd, and delicious (but slightly expensive) drinks. if you want to...view more go to a crowded club with sweaty jerks jumping all over, go to the meat packing dist. if you want to go to a pub for a draft beer, go to library bar or doc hollidays. if you want classy, trendy and fun, id recommend ella.view less

It's amazing to see how quickly their PR people respond to neg reviews of the place with glowing 5-star ones. They should pay that much attention to what's going on at the door and inside! It's still a waste of time and money coming here.
