NYC Nightlife

If you are looking for good parties in NYC,with a local NYC crowd

Places like: KISS&FLY, TENJUNE, 1OAK, LAVO, Riff Raff's, Gansevoort Park, SL and many more

places in the Meatpacking district

I promote few different spots every night and always have a VIP table or a table on the dance floor.

I meet my guests outside the club and personally walk them in.

Table reservation? Bottle service? I can make a table reservations in almost every spot in the city, getting the best tables in the club and best prices.

Celebrate birthday, bachelorette party? i can get you the best deals

Things going behind management..

I know writing this won't change how this club operates or would it not raise attention to Nicolas Matar himself..

I am not going to tell you which part is unfair about it ,but all of it so you get a logical idea.

it was 22:15, 15 minutes late, there was a guy with a paper board and checked my name in the list, showed and validated the credit card I purchased with and my drivers license, he was kind.

Then 1 minute later , without any supervision or anything a guy with a black shirt from inside came in and started checking people's ids again. When he checked my driver's license he did not even get a well look or see if it scans or anything.. and shook his head.. I said why 2 times.. and no response.

I turned 21 this january and i have never been rejected. I go to bars weekly with my friends, liquor shops, casinos in AC and clubs.. Well today I am going to speak to the manager of the club and tell them what happened.

NYC is laughable

People always talk about NYC being one of the top club scenes in the world.....Wrong. If Cielo is any indication then the world is in trouble. Cielo is a joke. It was just laughable it was so bad.

We all know people do not get on the internet to write some glowing review about a place. They get on the internet because they are mad or pissed. So all of the glowing reviews about this place are probably staff or owners or promoters.

Telling you everything wrong has already been mentioned in the other 78 reviews so I won't even go into my story. Just read for yourself and you can consider yourself warned if you do happen to go to Cielo.

SERIOUSLY great House Music and Underground vibe!

I've been attending Cielo every WED religiously for the past 6 years and I still love the place!

Every Wed they have the ROOTS NYC PARTY with Kevin Hedge & Louie Vega.

This is the ultimate in UNDERGROUND HOUSE MUSIC in NYC. Grammy award winning Louie Vegas brings house-music from all over the world, while Kevin Hedge offers his talents, best known for legendary hits like De'Lacy's ""Hideaway"" as part of Blaze. Together they bringing you music and energy from the underground scene reminiscent of Shelter and Sound Factory Bar!

Dont go...

Ok, so me and my friends were excited to finally go to cielo, we are professional clubbers so we know the in and out of the club scene...but this place is pathetic... the security is extreme i mean extreme, felt like at the airport, they also treat you like children at the door..""you cant do that/thats not allow"" one inside the drinks are water-down (im a bartender so trust me i know) the club is mad tiny and the dance floor is tiny as well, the people in there are either older women later 30-40s and the rest look like if they were kidding once inside the security keeps looking at you weird or asking you to move aside, they are really pushy, i rather go to Pacha than this place. the dj are ok but the lights show is bad or non-existence, the people are snobby and a sense of ackwardness...pls go elsewhere...this place is overated.

I went here last Saturday. After having our bags, wallets checked for a while, my friend was let in. She was wearing a dress. I was wearing jeans, and the woman told me to hold up my arms. I said, ""Are you kidding me?"" She said, ""No ma'am"" and proceeded to touch my entire body. (I was not packing a gun in my bra. Did she really have to touch my breasts??) It happened so fast that I didn't have time to react. I grabbed my friend, and we left.

Cielo is still king of the hood

I had come to Cielo 3 years ago and have a good time with my then boyfriend. now that i'm single and my girls and i like to party in the meat packing district, we decided to give Cielo a try again. Thank God we did. That hot boy at the door is a breath of fresh air in regards to the asses around town. i'd heard he was tough and remember him from the last time but he was so sweet to us (although we had to pay). ): the dj was pretty good, think his name was Ted paterson but the sound was insane. i dont remember leaving but that's a good thing sometimes. i'll definately be back to cielo . do they own any other places in the city?

The worst place in the country

We were one of the first people there. Dressed to the nines. Conceited doorman still insisted we purchase bottle service. There was nobody there and the music sucked!! I have been to dance clubs all over the country and all over the world and I would rate this the WORST club ever!!!! C'mon, this is no Studio 54! Get over yourselves! ANY place in NYC is better than this club!
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!! This place will be out of business in less than a year!!

still the best club in town

whoever is writing these disgusting emails bashing CIELO should be ashamed of yourself. Nicolas Matar is a genius and the staff he hired has been the same since the day they opened the door. maybe all of you angry haters should behave like gentleman and ladies when trying to gain entry instead of name-dropping and barking commands to the door people. also, try dressing up one in a while and leaving your 4 buddies at home. come on people, get with the times. Yes, Cielo might be difficult to get in on some nights but with the right attitude and just being a pleasant human being, you might actually get to hear the wonderful sounds that come from those speakers for once.
CIELO, please continue to do what you do and forget what these idiots say. hey weren't the ones who made you what you are and they'll be the first to go to the next wannabe Cielo when it opens.

Nicolas Mattar shame on you! You forgot how the things are in the White Island back then.

I will be so happy if this review will change anything but it will certainly don't :-(

I had a ""very bad experience"" with your door person ... again!

I wish I can do something to make this club to be a better place.

I will stay in incognito for now but CIELO turn me to something bitter.

We will see who going to laugh at the end ...

Thanksgiving Night at Cielo with Danny Tenaglia

I had such a blast on Thanksgiving at Danny Tenaglia! The room was packed, but not so you could not move. Cielo is always a great time, and the DJs bring their A game every time I go. I definitely recommend this club for music lovers - the bridge-and-tunnel quotient is low, and the energy is high. A++.

Upsetting night

i thought i would never have to give a bad review to this club, but sad to say i will never be comming back to this place after getting disrespected and embarressed at the door. i knew all the doormen and everyone inside. i walked into a full on frisk and search of me and my friends handbags. we obviously didnt have anything. but the woman who was frisking my friend wouldn't let us in and on top of it had nothing to prove that we had anything. and we didn't!! way to let innocent good looking girls not in your club b.c you THINK we are guilty of something and have nothing to show for it. we don't do anything illegal. she looked at her chap stick and then kicked us out saying we are not allowed in the club. what the h*** is going on with this club?? this used to be my favorite club. i got embaresed by all the people i know at the door and my friends outside who thought i brought something illegal in or whatever. and i didn't. lesson for next time Cielo if you are accusing someone of something maybe you should actually tell the person or show the person what they have that is not letting them in the place. i'm left baffeled still 2 days later b/c we don't understand what happend. i could go on about this forever but ill leave it at that. Rediculous

I say bestie because this club is a true audiophile and dancers best friend. If you can't get in then go somewhere else because there is no budging the security. If you are a hottie then bring all your girlfriends and be prepared for the night of your life.

If you're looking to be ripped off and treated with complete disrepect, go to Cielo!

Let's set the scene. A group of 9 very well dressed and attractive young 20-somethings, having waited on line for over an hour on a Saturday night, are yelled at and berated by a bouncer. Why? Because they won't pay a GRAND for a "" 3 bottle minimum."" If the group had split themselves into parties of two and three, they would not have had a problem getting in. Only because of the large party size were they ordered to commit to a 3 bottle minimum so they would be allowed in. Absolutely ridiculous. This was a quiet group on line causing no trouble, with the majority of people dressed in designer labels! There was absolutely NO reason why they should have been turned away. Apparently this place is great during the week but if you're planning on going on a Saturday night, prepare yourself to be ripped off or told to ""step away."" Give me a break. In this economy, they should be a hell of a lot more courteous to their target audience. Unbelievable. Could not have been more rude.

I had emailed a week in advance about the night I wanted to have my 25th birthday party at Cielo. I informed them there would be 10 people there and we were interested in a table. ""Shu de Jong"" emailed me back and said $390 a bottle, minimum 3 bottles if we wanted a table. I said this was a little steep for me, so we wanted to know if we just went and didn't get a table, was there a guest list for the cover charge. He said no. Never mentioning that it would be bottle service only that night if we wanted admission into the club. I arrive to Cielo at 1030 on the night of my birthday party and the bouncers claim there is a private party going on until 1130. This is fine and we go to Buddha bar for some drinks in the meantime. We come back and stand in line for an HOUR and once we get the front, the bouncer says we can only be let in if we purchase at least 3 bottles ($390x3) and we are taken aback. The bouncer continues to yell at us until we ""step aside"". As I am upset, the bouncers continue to yell at us and tell us we can't even stand in front of the club while we figure out what we are going to do now. ""Shu du jong"", who I had been emailing earlier in the week, comes up and says he has us down for three bottles and a table! We never asked for that!!!! Cielo may be claimed as a great NYC club, but I will NEVER EVER go back there ever again. The customer service is horrific and it's nothing but some overly confident too hot on themselves jerks who are rude and treat others who don't want to drop thousands of dollars at their establishment as peons. You are so much better off going to any other club in the city- Cielo is a waste of your time and hard earned money.

Best place for a bachelorette party

Oh my god, the dancing at this club is just so amazing and the vibe is absolutely perfect. My girls and I were there for a bachelorette party and had the greatest time. Bar Raffaeli was there that night, dancing right by us-without Leonardo, and she was totally making out with this Greek god who introduced himself to us as Alex Perris. I'm guessing he's a singer songwriter or maybe an actor.

Not recommended if you're into music and dance, $150 to enter, or $300 for 3 person + tickets

Well, I didn't want to pay $300 to enter in Cielo on Wednesday, simple as that. They're sexist. If you're girl with big front and good a*s, yeah, you will get in, otherwise, find some other place. I would never go to Cielo anyway but Louie Vega was the reason - not anymore. I will never listen to his music again, I didn't know that it's all about money to him, I could never imagine that Louie Vega could be one of them, I already throw out all Vinyls and CD-s, anything related to MAW is gone - forever! And he didn't show up at all. Music was very sh**ty.
I wanted to experience myself that famous door policy, I was suspicious to all those negative reviews. They were right! It's not about music, it's about money, and just money. Those youngsters with never heard for many DJ-s, they probably think that Louie Vega is some new Tiesto or some german-euro-trash DJ. Club was empty when we arrived and we was ready to leave them $400 on drinks anyway, but to get in for ""just"" $300 - nonsense. There are no DJ who could make me to pay $300 to enter in stinky dark place with some ""face control"" (wash yourself man before job), I would rather go to Lennox Lounge and listen some quality live jazz. for $200.

If you're house music lover, you should not even consider going there. That was my mistake, and it will never happen again. I just wish that everyone feel Cielo's door policy on their skin, you'll be surprised just to see what you can get with fake b**bs and no brain.
