New Years Eve 2012 on the Rooftop!

What better way to spend New Years Eve than on the penthouse rooftop of one of New York's Best Hotels! Choose between 3 different breathtaking rooms to celebrate in, each with their own bar. Access to a separate VIP lounge is available too. Certain NYE packages have already Sold Out so hurry and get your NYE '12 ticket to this beautiful hotel rooftop, before it's too late!

PLUNGE LOUNGE AT GANSEVORT ARE RACISTS

Let me just start off by saying that if you are a person of color, then dont bother coming to Plunge at the Gansevort Hotel. The Story: My friends and I were coming to celebrate the birthday of two dear friends. Once we finally made it to the front of the line, we were told that in order to enter as a group of 10 that we would need to purchase 3 bottles. After a few brief moments of utter confusion, we stepped off the line to figure out how to continue enjoying the evening. Looking over at the front of the line, a young lady in a red dress began pulling people in the line to come in with no questions about bottle service, reservation etc. Once she noticed I was looking, she and her other ""helpers"" began calling for couples. The majority of my group were females with the exception of 3 males. My friends decided to break up and come in one by one instead however I decided to stay off the line to observe this ""selection process."" I watched as the lady in red step behind my friend and her husband to grab a white couple to come in. Of course my friends respond by saying ""are you just going to ignore us""? Apparently two black people standing in front of the line did not appear ready with ID's when two white people behind them were.... I decided that I wanted to test this selection process for myself and hopped back on the line. My boyfriend and I were finally at the front of the line ID in hand and the lady in red points to two white patrons behind us to come in. Like us ""they did not have a reservation, they did not buy a bottle, and we were both following the dress code."" I have 0 tolerance for disrespect so I decided to walk in as she pulled back the tape. She then says to me ""not you."" My boyfriend and I walked in despite her protest with no other issue for the rest of the evening. Walking into this establishment, I quickly realized that the ONLY people of color that the Plunge lounge at the Gansevort hotel want are the one working hourly wages as bouncers and the help. Also as an establishment, their presentation is a major fail. The music is terrible (and I found it surprising that they played Beyonce, Rhianna and music from other artist of color) The drinks are weak and they dont sell their tables which leads me to believe that their whole attempt at being ""exclusive"" is a complete farce. Their is no cover charge because they are trying to make money at the bar. they are trying to make money at the bar because no one is dumb enough to buy a table for $600-$1,000 and even more so there is no cover charge because the entire Plunge experience is a FAIL and they know it. Dont bother.

Great view, classy bar.

The view of NYC was very impressive, as was the decor. It's a very classy bar that my girlfriends and I had a great time at. I was debating giving this lounge a 5 star rating, but our waitress was a bit rude. The bar staff was very friendly though, and we were having such a great time that we were able to ignore the waitress and enjoy the atmosphere and good drinks!

WORST PLACE TO SPEND $500.00

HAD MY BIRTHDAY PARTY HERE......WHAT A MISTAKE!!!! MUSIC WAS SOOOO LOW, STAFF WAS RUDE, MANAGER WAS RUDE ( A WHITE OLD MAN AND A TAN SKINNED MAN), GUYS WERE TRYING TO HIT ON ME AND MY FRIENDS...NO SECURITY AROUND, AFTER I COMPLAINED THAT THERE WERE MEN HITTING ON ME AND MY FRIENDS, THE MANAGER SIMPLY SAID"" OK DONT WORRY ABOUT IT"" AND SHRUGGED ME OFF EVEN AFTER I FOLLOWED HIM TO GET SOME SECURITY AROUND MY TABLE.....NEVER AGAIN!!! THIS PLACE IS ALL TALK AND NO BITE...FOOD WAS TERRIBLE AS WELL. POOL WASNT OPEN EVEN AFTER THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD BE OPEN. NOT-SO-BRIGHT WAITRESS CAME TO MY TABLE ONLY 2X AFTER BEING THERE FROM 9-3AM AND I HAD TO GIVE HER A 20% TIP...SO UNFAIR AND NOT WORTH MY TIME AND MONEY EVER AGAIN!!! PLS BEWARE!!!!!!!!

Awesome Rooftop Lounge

My company took us here for a Happy Hour after work on Wed night. It was kind of empty and actually good because we did have a big group. They have great cocktails but lack in the beer selection. The lounge has indoor lounge area within the glass window room while there is also an outdoor terrace section without roofing. It has a great view of the Hudson River and lower Manhattan. Their spicy French fries are to die for. Also, the waygu sliders are great with some sushi ginger inside... What a great concept! The food or drink here is not cheap though. It definitely is one of the Meatpacking hot spot.

The Worst Place Ever

After getting pass all the what seemed like Secret Service security to get in (which was rude) We get upstairs to find out the treament is only for some. We celebrated friends birthdays one of who found a Long HAiR in her salad. Waited over an hour just for our appettizers and another for the main course. The water pitcher was filthy....Not worth the money! too many hot spots in NYC to go thru that!!!
NEVER AGAIN

Nice views, cool staff

The experience starts with a long line and a well dressed, large, imposing doorman that scans your ID in a handheld scanner. This allows them to track VIPs and banned customers. I love technology. The doorman was very polite and explained the device while we were waiting. Once upstairs, you see great views and cool, loungie furnishings. The staff is efficient, and the drinks are delicious. It's worth the wait.

My last trip to NYC

Overall, I enjoyed my time there. It was cold outside, so It's probably better in the summer. The music wasn't that great either, it didn't match the environment.

Great Spot

Beautiful mix of ppl, very diverse, great dj, plays everything from hip hop/pop/reggae, etc...wonderful setting, i've only been there twice, but it keeps getting better!! I recommend this place to anyone new to the city looking for an upscale hotel bar/lounge to hang out! And the best part is, it's FREE entry!!!

Amazing!

One ultra hetero hangout spot! The boys and I go out to play here weekly in the summer here. I go to the party at the Ono Garden just about every Sunday and we tend to use the bathroom in the Hotel Gans lobby when the Ono bathrooms get overcrowded. Never any problems. The staff is very gay-friendly as well which is why I also stay at the hotel quite often. The black dreadlocked bouncer even lets my friends and I up even when we're not dressed appropriately and when I'm not staying there. He just asks that we behave ourselves. The only things negative thing that I can remember was one, this sassy fat black girl giving the doorman some grief when he was checking IDs. She was verbally abusive to and very flippant with him but her friends were not. He took it all in stride when it happened approximately two weeks ago.Don't know if she was just queening out drunk or both but she caused a scene but was dismissed almost as soon as she caused it. Thank goodness he didn't let her in, she looked a hot mess and had a helluva mouth. Too bad for her friends though, they looked great! Once pass the discerning doorman, be careful when upstairs too. As the last negative thing were the waitresses who aren't very responsive unless you are dressed a certain way. We had to constantly get up and find who is attending to us. This can be quite annoying especially when you see these girls just hanging around doing nothing on these slow and easygoing nights. I refuse to go during the weekends. The crowd is just too aggressive. Give it a try because you'll love the great drinks and great people! It would be great if they played house music though!
