I was at Duvet on Saturday, 11/22/09 and today I checked my bank statement and realized they posted two charges. My drinks came to a total of $28.00 and I see two charges, one for $50 and another for $100. I called and they were closed but they have not heard the last of me! I know the economy is bad but geez! The $30 bucks or so they charge a head to get into the joint is not enough? They gotta rob you blind by adding extra charges onto your bill? This is clearly fraud.

I'm not sure if I should trust all these negative comments that I see for Duvet because ppl who are having a good time don't usually take the time to write reviews. I mean if the club disses you because you don't adhere to the dresscode, is that not your fault? These same ppl who got ""dissed"" and will stop at nothing to write complaints about the venue.
I went with 3 of my girls and the line was really long -at first. But it moved rather quickly and we got inside for free before 12am and the party was already rockin! Drinks were around $12 which is the norm and we partied til the break of dawn! There were ppl on the beds, on the dance floor, around the huge bar and on the stage dancing like there was no tomorrow. I had a great time and enjoyed the vibes!
I'm not quite sure what these negative comments are coming from but if you're not having a good time then don't deflamate the club...blame yourselves!

Damn it, this place was all bad.
I'm visiting nyc from san fran, this place sounded like it had a unique idea, so we gave it a shot. We had 4 guys and 3 girls. If you have no girls then you have to buy bottles. We arrived at 10:15, we got in by 11, that's okay. The bed idea is cool but duvet really dropped the ball, their sheets are dirty and ripped, not cool. i opened a tab and had a good time drinking, the drinks were okay. At the end of the night they billed me for items i did not buy, they wouldn't listen to me and threated to call the police, which was okay with me, but i had to fly back to sf in the morning and they wouldn't return my ID without me signing the bill, so i signed. Plus they added an extra 20% gratuity charge. My $150 worth of drinks turned into $250, fail. Now for the pro/con breakdown...
- The door guy was nice. oddly he let the guys in before the girls, hah, never had that happen before but i'll take it.
- outside in line: Semi-long wait
- Music: the dj was simply bad. there was no rhythm, the genres bounced around at random from dance to hiphop to dance back to reggae. At some points people stopped dancing because we had all lost our groove.
- Decor: No jellyfish in their tank like they say they have. Bed sheets are definitely not white, it's a little gross.
- Service: the wait time for drinks was okay, 5 minutes. At the end of the night i saw that they charged me for drinks that i did not order, plus added a 20% gratuity tax at the end of the night. BEWARE: if you open a tab they will add a gratuity tax and possibly add drinks to your bill; i have talked to several people now that have had this happen. On top of this my bank statement now shows that they are trying to charge double what the bill says. 2 major fails! Unforntunately i'm forced to file complaints with the credit card company and B B B.
- This place is nothing, it's below average in every catagory, it's litterally a waste of time plus a little risky because of their billing shadiness.
If anyone else has had them add bogus drinks or falsify your bill, please contact me.

DUVET is one of the best parties I've ever been to in a long time! I mean, what club in NYC has beds as its tables? It's a totally unique experience! My girls & I went this past Saturday through a promoter called ""theKONGLIST"" and next thing you know, we all kicked-off our shoes and were jumping up & down on beds all night long! There's a huge bar that looks like blocks of ice, awesome music being spun by interchanging DJ's & a beautiful ""mixed"" crowd...DUVET is one of hottest parties I've been to in a long time!!

I had heard so much about this place, and I finally went. I was having fun, I mean first you have to make it past the bouncer, he yells at everyone, and is extremely rude. We were sitting VIP and even though we had paid hundreds of dollars the staff barely came back to help. On top of that, they automatically include gratuity (20%--and they include that on drinks even if you buy ONE beer at the bar) and a couple of people in my group failed to see that and ended up leaving tips in addition to gratuity. They tried to call to get their money back and no one was willing to listen. This place will scam you. Don't be fooled by thinking their drinks are cheaper. By including 20% gratuity, it's the same as everywhere else!

I have been to Duvet several times with my friends and every time we go we have a great time! The atmosphere is just FUN! When you walk in you see all these lights and this amazingly beautiful bar and hear this music and you feel like it's pumping through your body. All you want to do is dance! And that's exactly what we did all night. We were drinking and dancing all night. We had the best time!

While visiting NYC, June '09; we wanted to go to an upscale club in the city. A friend had gotten us passes for Duvet. We were given the run around while at least 15 different staff members repeatedly told us to “wait here, I'll have to check”. For passes that guaranteed us ""no line"" we were told we had to stand in line. Our passes also gave us 1 hour open bar...again more than one person had to be asked and we were given a vodka drink that either had no liquor at all or was noticeably watered down. Upon entrance, ecurity had taken away a pair of eyebrow tweezers which I had been told I would get back when I left. When we tried to leave out of doors clearly marked EXIT, we were chased and rudely pointed to another door. I asked for my property to be returned as I had been told. I was told everything from just NO to that stuff has been thrown away already, again by about 10 different staff members, each one with a different story. One of my party was able to re enter via the street entrance and security that had taken the items did try to give us back our property (which had not been thrown away) but did not give back the right items and by the time we realized, it was too late.
Management needs to get their act together: not every patron is brainless or too inebriated to not care about being mistreated.

I went to club duvet for my last night out with 9 other friends. We went through a website called NYLastNightOut. The website is suppose to give you a hour pole dancing class, a nice limo and the rest of the night at any club you choose. Well I chose club Duvet. And let me tell you those men made me feel like the bottom of their shoes. Dirt. First I go to the front of the line, because I paid the website in full to have VIP entrance. I gave the bouncer the name of the lady the Limo guy told me to. But it's like as soon as he seen me and the girls walking up, he started yelling, all VIP entrances is closed, we're not excepting big groups. All I can think of is Y? I already paid. So I go to the bouncer and I ask him, why can't we get in I paid my money for this? He yelled and said, get off the line, you're not getting in- go stand over there! I was just in shock. Could not believe someone could be so nasty. Mind you I had on my girl last night out boa, the crown, with the veil. How could you treat a bride-to-be like that on her last night out?? Bottom line, I never got in, never got an apology, from the limo guy, from the people from the website, or my money!!!! So don't waist your time on a club like that when there are so many more in NYC!

Duvet is such a beautiful club. We really enjoyed our time here. The ice bar is great... I've never seen anything like it, the beds are so much fun and we got the bed all night because we did bottle service, music was great... they played everything from dance to hip/hop to throw backs, and they have all these different colored lights everywhere... totally love it. Everyone was so nice and friendly from the doorman, to the bouncers, to the wait staff, to the bartenders. I had a great and fun experience!

The doormen are under some notion that it is ok or cool to be rude, crude, stupid, and pretentious. If you make it through this long and boring line – you now have to be submitted to the closest thing to a cavity search I have ever had – far worse than the airports. If you make it through the security check – you now get to pay the cover – which isn’t cheap.
In the club there are two rooms upstairs – (i) the ice bar, and the (ii) bedroom, and one room in the basement – all beds. The ice bar is got a really cool design and the bartenders are nice folks – service with a smile – that is the best thing about this place.
The bedrooms are a silly gimmick – do you really want to lie on a dirty bed fully clothed with your date in a room with a bunch of strangers ? and try to have a conversation while being bombarded with lousy hip-hop music. The basement smelled like – a basement. Then of course there is the criminally mobile getto crowd the ownership panders too. A great bunch. RIP - Next.

Duvet is such a beautiful club. Why would anyone want to party elsewhere when they can party on beds. It's like being at home, but only better! It was my first time here and I truly enjoyed it. There was a very long line to get in, but once we were in it was great! The people were very nice and explained how to get a bed; which you had to buy bottles; which we did. We did not want to leave because we were having so much fun! I never really thought of partying and dancing on beds, but it really works!! I also loved the ice bar and the bathrooms. They were very very cool! Not what I expected for a NYC club. Next time I am in NY I am 1000% coming here.

I've been to Duvet several times and every time i go i have such a great time. When we came up to the line we were 5 girls and 4 guys. They checked our ID and got us right in. When we were drinking at the bar and the bartenders were so cute and friendly. Afterwards we decided to buy bottles and get a bed. It was SO awesome we really partied like rock stars! the waitress was very kind and was helping us so we kept on buying bottles. We truly danced the night away. It you want to have a great party and be a true big shot then you definitely have to go to DUVET!

I never been so embrassed in my life! I've been to Duvet numerous of time and I use to like it up to saturday. My friend just turned 21 and she never been to a club before. My friend is a plus size girl and well me I'm pretty small, but never had I been so disrespected and embrassed in my life. Me and my friend went to Duvet in which we arrived there at 11:15pm we didn't get to the front of the line until 12:10 in which they purposely keep u waiting there so u can pay the admission fee despite being there early. Which this was totally crazy considering it was about 20 people in front of us. But anyways when we got to the very front they were about to let me in, but then the security guard asked me was she with me (my friend) who was standing behind me at the time. I said yes. He then told me to get off the line and at first I was confused like why did we have to get off the line, but I did... and then I asked him why did we have to get off he then state do you want the real truth I said yeah! He said while he looked at my friend he stated we have the right to choose who we let in. I was upset i immediately tried to call the club number that I had for them to speak with the owner! I never heard of anything like this in my life, but of course no one picked up. So I called my other friend and told her what happen she then told me when she went to Duvet a while ago a staff memeber actually said they don't let fat girls in. I was enraged I hung up w/ her call 311 to find out how could i go about making a complain about the situation she later gave me the Human Resources number and I will definitely be calling them on Monday for Discrimination! Never did i once while viewing their online site see NO BIG GIRLS ALLOWED! Now my friend don't even want to ever go clubbing because of their unprofessionalism isn't her money green just like everyone else?

DUVET-FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!!! We were visiting NY and wanted to spend the best new years eve ever, it was the WORST! We bought the tickets for ultra vip bed online $800 (4 tickets) which were not very cheap, but it was new years and it seem a nice club plus the services listed on the package sounded good: 1 bottle of vodka, 1 bottle of champagne, food, vip pass, open bar. We arrived around 9 pm, we didn?t get inside the club until 10:30! It was the coldest day in ny in the last 5 years, we were -2 Fahrenheit, sooooo cold! And this was the ""vip pass."" Once we got inside we were expecting food, there was none. The waitress charged us $100 dlls to bring the ?bottles? and for service, she only brought one bottle of vodka and disappeared for the rest of the night. Then, we never received the bottle of champagne for the toast, that was included in the package! we were starving, never received drinks from the ?open bar? the waitress never came back. We tried to talk to the manager Sabrina, so rude! she said ?we were only getting one bottle, to look for the waitress for the food and to do whatever we wanted, she was busy.? We basically left, we were starving, service was terrible. It was the most horrible new years eve and we paid for it $900 dlls! We ended up eating hot dogs at the street, with no new years eve toast. I was so embarrassed with my guests, I suggested this club and it was a huge disappointment.

I've been clubbing in NYC for 6 years now, and have been to about 30+ clubs/lounges from downtown to midtown...and these are BY FAR the worst/rudest bouncers I've ever come across. Yeah it's pricey to get in and the drinks are also expensive, but the bouncers really took it over the top. I went for my cousin's bday party, and I would have LEFT if it weren't for her.
On a good note, the bartenders were super nice and helpful.

We were at Duvet this past weekend and absolutely LOVED it!! It is so beautiful. The music was great and the vibe is so hot. I've be to ever club from NY to LA and this is one of my favorites by far!!!!!! The girls are cute and the beds are great! This place is so different compared to all the other clubs. I am in love with the bar....... so pretty! Definitely worth checking out!!!!

BEWARE! after waiting in line, we were rudely searched in all pockets, when I asked why were being searched I was insulted by the woman, and the price was too much to get into the club first of all and second to have your bag checked and iPod stolen by the man behind the counter. There are plenty of other clubs in NYC - skip this one.
