Avoid This Dump

Major problems with this club: They charged my heterosexual, caucasian female friend $20, while they charged us $2 only. At this point I already didn't want to go in because I hate that b.s. Also, the rude ""Jabba Da Hut"" at the register,took his time (ten minutes or so) by pretending he was organizing his drawer before acknowledging us -- or I should say ""grunting"" at us. In the meantime, the bouncer, who was friendlier I guess because he was Puerto Rican like my partner, was explaining to him the logistics of why my female friend was being charged $20. Apparently, Thursday nights are just ""male nights."" Wrong explanation to human rights activists from D.C. The website AD said it was ""Latin night"" with salsa and etc... When we got in, it was all ghetto and dance hall music that I'm over with, because I've been to these bars in D.C. and was looking for the latino experience that New York offered. We ordered our drinks and they came in a tiny glass equivalent to the cups in an eyewash station. At this point I told my partner and friend -- I'm sure New York has something better to offer on a Thursday than this dumpster. (Well, that was the ""G"" version of my comment but I was a little more passionate than that). We obviously weren't welcome at the club because we weren't gay, black males -- so we headed to SPLASH were we had the best time! It was okay to be white, Asian, female, Puerto Rican, etc... and it was free!!

Severly Disappointed

I just wanted to say i am very disappointed in how my inquiry about doing my 25th birthday party at escuelita was handled and hope that the management reads this and fixes the problem in the future:

1. I called the club on several ocassions to nothing but a full voice mail box. There never seemed to be anyone there to check the messages or answer the phone
2. I email the manager, only to get replies the the inbox was full
3. I sent a message to the promotional myspace page 3 times and was told the the information was passed to the manager and i still never got a response.
4. If they could not hold my event there they could have had the courtesy to just let me know so i could have made other plans.

I have planned parties for both nightclub and restaurant and i would never shun business with out a good reason. So if there is one i would love to hear it!

Nowhere near the best...certainly not the worst

On the good side:

1) Large selection (Lots of hotties)
2) Close to Penn Station/Times Square
3) Good music (Not much techno...but then the crowd isn't a ""techno crowd"")
4) Convenient to other places.

On The bad side:

1) Expensive drinks
2) Very dingy bordering on filthy
3) Too many regulars (And not the GOOD ones)
4) Too small
5) Drag show isn't much of a show.
6) Friday's are pretty much ONLY for the ladies
7) Poor security that's also rude....and kind of stupid.

If you are looking for a late night stray piece of a8s..then you might like this place.
If not.......look elsewhere.

La Escuelita

Is an amazzing place if you like Blk and Lationo guys, well by latinos I mean the hotties, Puertoricans and Dominicans, and if you are in to hip hop and any trendy music. If you are in to the other kind of latinos go to Atalantis, Luchos and so on in Jackson Heights, so you are gonna listen horrible latino and gay music and most of the patrons are ugly as hell, lol. Now remember, a lot of atractive young guys with a thug look (not always attitude) looking for the same, yung. So please understand if you are not in to the new trends you are gonna get BORED.
Excelente si buscas Morenos I Latinos, quiero decir guapos, ya sabes Puertorique?os y Dominicanos, si te gusta la musica Hip Hop y estas en onda. Si te gustan el otro tipo de latinos, ve a Atlantis y Luchos en Jackson Heights, dosnde ademas de oir horrible musca gay y latina, la mayor parte de los assistentes no son los mas guapos que digamos, lol. Asi que recuerad en la Escuelita muchos chicos atractivos con apariencia masculina, aunque no siempre la acctitud concuerda, buscando simeilares asi que hay que entender si no estan l corriente se van a ABURRIR

Go TO FREEDOM FRIDAYS

I just went to this club for first time this past friday and I wasnt dissapointed . The music was good because they played a good mix of Raggae, Hip-Hop, Bachata, Merengue and even Salsa which a lot of other clubs won't play so I loved it. I didn't buy a drink because I pregamed , but water was $5 . Cover was only $3 and definetely worth it because I had a great time. Other than good music , the vibe there was extremely friendly, it was mostly women , femme's, Butches, AG's and the likes but there was no competitive vibes like other gay clubs everyone here was friendly and about having a good time. They also had a stripper and shows at 2:30 , I will definetely be going back !!!!

Ahh...

Music was horrible the 3 times I went... the crowd was not all that hot either... it was cool but not ""wild""... Would not do again unless they get some real techno and real music rolling in there...

CHANGE THE DJ OR THE CD

THE DRINKS ARE WAY TOO EXPENSIVE, BUT THE BAR ITSELF IS NICE. THE MUSIC GETS TIRED WEEK AFTER WEEK. AFTER 2-3 MONTHS OF GOING THERE I GOT BORED AND STOP GOING OUT PERIOD. ITS A GREAT PLACE TO MEET PEOPLE AND MINGLE BUT I THINK THEY NEED TO PLAY MORE RECENT MUSIC AND MAYBE LOWER THE PRICES ON THEIR DRINKS. I PAID $7.00 FOR A HEINEKEN AND THEN I HAVE TO TIP?
