The first time I went to Drai's I was with my bf and my friend (female). The line was pretty long because we didnt buy a table, and we waited for like half an hour and talked to the door guys a few times, then they let us in. I think it was partly because we looked good. lol I had a lot of fun and the Dj was pretty good, but I expected to be better, and thought that he was going to play newer songs since it's Drai's... The second time I went there was on Halloween and it was much easier for me and my boyfriend to get in, because the promoter recognized us from last time :) and after that each time we went to Drai's we talked to that promoter and he always got us in (HOW NICE!) The dancers dance like amateur dancers, they kinda look like they r pretending to dance well... yeah, they need better dancers. Me and my bf also spent NYE at Drai's and the tickets were $150 each, but it was all worth it because they had open bar from 9-11pm with hors d' oeuvres and they were delicious! :) There was a nice atmosphere, everybody looked classy... and drunk, but we had a really good time and no crazy drunk drama! I think it was the best club to be in on NYE. :))

I have not been here in 2 years. However since one of my friends visiting me wanted to have a sandwich from here, I reluctantly agreed to take him there. He loves their steaks and has to come here when he visits me. The lines yesterday afternoon were not long and we got our sandwich in 2 minutes unlike the previous occasion when the wait was over 30 minutes. As usual, I did not expect to like the cheesesteak and it was bad. Plus this time instead of fried onions, they had raw onions. Seriously they cannot even fry the onions right. My other complaint is the price. For the amount of meat in the sandwich, they should be charging $5 instead of $8.50. The only positive is this place looks clean unlike their competitor across the street. Luckily my friend also was very disappointed so I won't be coming here ever again.

I can only handle the Meatpacking district every once in a while. But I'd always be up for going to Cielo. They play great house music, and I love grabbing a drink and lounging around. There is a dance floor for those who want to break out their stuff, but the music is too cool to dance. Come here during the weekdays; it's a completely different atmosphere. Also, I think the bouncers here are nice to ladies; I've never had trouble getting in. Oh, and did i mention they play really, really great music?
