I walked away from this place ...

I walked away from this place with the most bitter taste in my mouth from the disrespectful treatment that my friends and I recieved at their door. There was zero appriciation for customers and it appeared like the door man was doing us a favor for even considering to let us in under the condition we open a $100 prepaid tab. It doesn't matter whether you are the hottest club in the city or some third-rate lounge in Queens (like this one), you should appriciate each and every person that walks through your doors and spends their money.

An Amazing Place!

Quite simply, this was one of the most fun nights I've experienced in Queens.

Our group reserved a table ahead of time. We arrived early before the club opened to ensure that we'd be at the front of the rope. After providing the host the proper incentive to receive proper service, we were shown to our table on the terrace, near the fire pit, overlooking the Dj Booth. It was an iconic view.

The service was outstanding. Our waitress, who was very hot, provided great service keeping our drinks fresh and our glasses filled. We bought several bottles of Ciroc vodka and Red Bull. . Quite simply, we were pampered as if we were Hollywood celebraties instead of just a bunch Astorian Nights
I loved the people watching, the service, the atmosphere, etc. If you can afford it, get a table, buy somee bottles of vodka, and for one night, live like a star.
The Sushi was also good, i defintely would try the name sake central roll.....it was excellent, i did notice that they bartenders were also fun by jumping on the bars, but i didnt understand why napkins were flying around.

REALLY BAD PLACE

Don’t go there

This place is really bad place. Here is why:

1. The place is very pricey. Expect to pay a lot for food or drinks. This is QUEENS, not NYC for God sake. They are charging as much as NYC and more. Ridiculous.

2. The bouncers are really J*rks. They look at you and decide who goes and not. If you are few guys together, they wont let you in 100%. When we went there, we were two couples, with two hot women. Only because I was wearing a sneaker, which is a designer’s sneaker btw (around $200), they wont let us in.

3. The music they play is a joke. If this is true house music, then I haven’t been in the scene as a dancer and a DJ for the past 30 years. If you want true house music, then go to D36, Pacha, or any of the other good clubs in NYC. This place plays commercial house and many times Greek music. If I want to listen to Greek music, then I would move to Greece.

4. If you are into dancing, then this is not your place. Many people here are standing and those who are dancing, are just tapping their feet back and forth! What!!!


Trust me, stay away from this place. You can thank me later.

NOT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE, UNATTRACTIVE PEOPLE

The staff here has no idea how to run a business. With the attitude of all the employees, you would think they were some exclusive 5 start establishment in Manhattan, but THEY'RE NOT, THEY'RE QUITE FAR FROM IT!!!!!

My friend reserved a table for a birthday. There were 10 of us. We arrived at 12 and it was not even 1/4 full. They stuck us at a table that was 3' x 3', no joke and we had initially ordered 2 bottles, but they said if we wanted a bigger table, it had to be 3 + bottles. We were going to get 3 + bottles anyways, but we left because the host/manager or whatever he was had NO IDEA ON HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS.

On top of that, the doorman was LETTING IN GUESTS WITHOUT CHECKING THEIR ID'S. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT BECAUSE HE LET IN A FRIEND OF MINE WHO WAS ONLY 17 YEARS OF AGE. But get this, he gave my boyfriend a hard time getting in even though he had a valid ID and credit cards and our whole group was 25+.

Even though we had reservations and ordered bottles, we still stood on line and waited while the doorman let in 17 year old teeny boppers!

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PLACE. NEVER GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT, I'M SURPRISED THEY'RE STILL IN BUSINESS.

Don't Even Think About going to CENTRAL go to CAVO

I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday over this past weekend, I specifically told the person who I spoke to over the phone what table I wanted. She asked me for my credit card number over the phone (which is not very safe these days) to hold the reservation, but I did not give it to her anyway then they confirmed my reservation. The day of... I got there with a party of 12 PEOPLE, the bouncer checked everyone's ID and told my boyfriend's cousin ""Oh this is not you"", I know this person very well and this is not you..... COME ON!!!! then we get in to find out that our table is a crapy couch with a little tinny table for 12 ppl.... I clearly stated on the phone wich table I wanted and I was told my reservation was ON.... It Gets Betta.... then they tell me they called me and I did not answered, so I took out my phone and I was about to show them they never called me when I see they were calling my number but instead of 347 area code they were calling 201 area code , Imagine if I was really coming from Jersey all the way to Astoria Queens and find this disaster????... after all ""me and the party of 12"" decided not to get the table but we were gonna stay for drinks, and they told us we couldn't stay because they let us in with a table reservation, and since there was no reservation we had to LEAVE.... Now at this point I was mortified having 12 ppl waiting and my boyfriend's surprised ruined, and these people did nothing to fixed their mess...It was so embarrasing. The people at this place do not give a crap about their customers, they have no word, and they make you feel like they do not need your business, you can clearly see that they are NOT customer friendly, they are not organized, and they do not train their employees properly. I truly hope Central's customer service orientation changes, otherwise it will wind up BURNED UP like other places in Astoria because NO ONE is going to want to go there. GO to Cavo instead, we had a blast and they treated us like we wanted to be treated, Cavo is the Best place to hang out in Astoria.

Staff is in over their heads

I used to go to this place for 6-7 straight years, before they remodelled it. Spent ALOT of money on this place.

Last 5 times I went there, never even got in. I was single at the time and they dont let you in if you dont have your gf/date with you. Even if its just you and your buddy, and want to buy a quick 4 rounds and leave 30 minutes later.

The last time I went, I vallet my car as usual, waited on line 30 min, and doorman told me dont bother waiting anymore Iwont get in, was just with a friend and we wanted to have 2-3 quick rounds before we left for home.

I get my car back from vallet, guy tells me no tip? I said I didnt even get in I was waiting on line all this time, and he called me names.

If they dont treat their old time customers who used to spend alot of money on drinks with respect anymore, dont expect them to treat you right, unless you're with 5 girls and they flirt with the doorman.

There is no need to go to places where you spend alot of money and they treat you like dirt. This place has changed when they remodelled. Take your business elsewhere. Theres a ton of clubs in queens.

Reservations Suck

It was my birthday and I had closed a table for a couple of friends and I. We ended up going there and they told half the group that my name wasn't on the list. I get there fine we all go inside. Then they try to tell us that our table was gaven to some beef head because he bought two bottles. I'm like wait what? I had closed two tables 4 bottles and you gave my table away ? Her response was I don't know. I ended up in a heated argument with the girl to the point that I ended up leaving and going to another Greek Club where they treated us much more better then this place.

Def. will never step foot here again.

Central Lounge ...

To Milfred. Shut UP! first off, this is not the 80s. Alcohol is not that expensive loser!!! and if u didnt know that every bar/lounge/club gets their liquor dirt cheap, no matter if its Grey Goose or Georgi vodka... central doesn't fill their liquor up with cheap stuff. .. you probably cant handle ur liquor... and expensive?? Central?? i've been there quite a few times n theyre prices are reasonable, but then again if ur cheap n expect a drink to cost $5.. go to your local pub. I hate people who bad mouth these places just because they dont have that extra cash in their pockets... if u cant afford it dont go out. u think central is expensive try the city... average drink at a club in Queens is 10-11 dollars ... and if ur not leavin at least $2 in a tip, ur cheap. stay home. Central is upscale, to upscale for u, therefore suk it up n go hang out at the local irish bar.

Dangerous to your health

This place should be seriously looked at by health officials. The drinks they serve can seriously be detrimental to your health. They fill the bottles with very cheap alcohol if not rubbing alcohol and try to pass them off as real greygoose or johnny. After one drink at this dump you will be wasted and after a few, you could go blind. Very disappointed if not angry after paying a cover to get in and having to be ripped off by these crooks serving garbage and charging expensive prices. Maybe if they were more honest and not greedy and getting people sick, they would have more business. 2 thumbs way down.

Central is great!

This place is incredible. The atmosphere was so hip, without being pretentious. The staff was VERY friendly (and great to look at too I might add), and the decor was beautiful. Great music and food, and DEFINITELY have the chocolate fondue for dessert. Amazing! Also, have the goat cheese salad - the best salad around.
