Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    After a heavy corporate party earlier that night this was the final stop for a few hardy travellers. The upstairs roof top/garden was charming and quirky. The drinks were good. The staff surprisingly indulgent. They let us dance like muppets until closing time. Definitely a party bar rather than a destination but if was in this part of town I would definitely be back, late at night.

    The whole experience is incredible! You have to see a show here. It is a unique theatrical experience from the moment you check-in for the night. The food was delish, the service was great and the show was incredible! There are sooooooo many talent people in that show! I felt like I was in a super exclusive club and got a real 70's disco vibe, but way cooler. If you don't experience this you will regret it.

    I liked the venue, typical SRO kind of place. We were on balcony, sound was very good, with plenty of places to get a cocktail. It’s what it is, you’ll like it if you’re there to see something you like enough .

    Decent venue! In terms of decor it's really beautiful and nicely laid out. Ornamentation is cool, nice big venue with an upper gallery, bar upstairs and downstairs.

    Down side: coat check at 5$ per coat, that's a little expensive. Beer at 15$, that's a lot expensive. Getting into the venue went relatively smoothly, but security guards were intense and a bit rude.

    Always a good time! Drinks were decent & the very young 20-30-ish crowd increased to a manageable size after 10. The sound system, however, was problematic at first, but the DJ eventually worked it out. As for the pool table, it would help if it was properly balanced so it didn't have to be tipped to retrieve balls & moved all the way to the back so that we could shoot pool all night.

    Off the beaten path, big rooms, BYOB (but there's a service charge). The system is easy to use which isn't true of every spot in the city. And they let you order outside food. Also have a happy hour special during week where karaoke is half price.

    I visited here with some friends when holidaying in NYC. Back home we have so many laws and regulations that it takes the fun out of partying, so to see naked guys walking around was kinda cool and liberating from our perspective. The guys here are looking for a hookup but you can easily lead the way to what you want out of your night.
    The upstairs is like a normal bar but the down stairs has a dark section where sex on premise is permitted with lots of guys simply watching while copping a groap or feel of each other they are standing near.
    Drinks are reasonably priced. 2x vodka soda and a carona coming to $20. There are go go boys dancing for tips with hands on permitted for extra dollars which some guys were quite happy to keep topping the money belt up.
    Was an ok experience to say we've been here and it makes us realise how much of a nanny state we live in back home in Australia. It was a good night out.

    Having been in party scene in NYC for last few years, I have been to Cielo many times. The dance floor is on the smaller side and on most days their DJ lineup is decent and nothing very special. Tables could range from 350 to 500 that are away from the dance floors and 1000+ that are right on the dance floor. Usually they have a 30 dollar entry fee as a general entry. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Crowd is mostly young including students, young professionals and tourists who like to party. Overall, it is a mid-range club and provides a good value for the price point.

    Went here on a Saturday night with a bunch of friends. Entry was easy and no long lines, and not super crowded inside too. Just perfect. The drinks were average and the music was good

    Large place. The performance I went for (Kokoroko) was a disappointment. $25 must buy to sit on tables.

    Costs $10 to get in This place is quite small so not a great first impression but if you like 70s 80s and 90s music its good for nostagia. Price of draft beer is same as most other NY bars but bottles are expensive. I enjoyed it so it was a good night. Its what you make of it that counts

    What a deal! I've wanted to learn partner dancing for as long as I can remember. I wish I had known YEARS ago that this scene/community existed. An hour long group lesson for just $10 (usually a smallish group, with individual attention), and then several hours of great music and dancing for only another $12? YES PLEASE!!

    I started coming here two years ago and have learned so much, met some fantastically talented people, and have had the time of my life. Whether you're just passing through and want to check out something new and have a good time, or you're a veteran dancer looking for a place to call home, Friday Night Blues is not an event you should pass up if given the chance.

    And don't forget the new "$10 before 10" deal - $20 for the night if you arrive before 10pm!
