Ding Dong! Nicolette Goes to Suzie Wong's

The results are unanimous. Our newest contributor Nicolette is a certified hit! One reader went so far to write, "I want more Nicolette and the City!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Well, we want it too. And finally, we have it. Nicolette checked out Suzie Wong's and then booked it to old standby, Pink Elephant. Without further ado. . .I arrived at Suzie Wong’s, the new sake lounge on West 27th street, fairly early – 11:30 p.m. There wasn’t a line which was great, and I walked right in. There are a lot of VIP tables here but none are roped off, and the place is pretty small – which I love. The smaller the place the better. There is only one bar and wherever there isn’t a table, or on top of the banquette, is the unofficial dance floor. Peter and his friends showed up around 12ish and we danced and mingled at their table. When they bring you bottles they also give you fortune cookies to go with their oriental theme. My friend Cristina’s fortune cookie read “Suzie Wong Says: Don’t be afraid to go to the bathroom with a stranger” and Sue’s read “Suzie Wong says: Kiss the person next to you passionately”. Pretty corny but kind of cute, and it does help with potential hooking up at 3:00 a.m. We had complimentary apple sake shots that aren’t strong so the price was right. DJ Nick Cohen spinned hip hop and rock (what else?) all night, and the crowd was 25 and under. A lot of fun, and I would definitely go back. But it cleared out early.

Since it was only 1:30, we went to Pink Elephant and met some friends who had a table. I love Pink Elephant! I always have the best time here! The only real competition this club has is Pink Elephant in The Hamptons, which makes Pink Elephant in Manhattan seem like an amateur’s night out.

We walked in and the place was packed. They play house, house with a few words in it and then some more house. Everyone was dancing, drinking, and going crazy, making Suzie Wong seem like an elementary school playground. There are always a lot of people here and most importantly - a lot of hot people. I’ve spotted a few celebs here before, and in the Hamptons I’ve hung out at John Legend’s table and danced next to Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova. Everyone here has money and the Euro scene is big, but not as big as it use to be. Don’t worry if you’ve never been to Europe or aren’t fluent in any other language - Drinking & Dancing is universal in any language in any city.

The night was the most fun I’ve had in awhile. Pink is still strict door, rude bouncers, and a little bit older (I’m 21, excluding the underage models, I was the youngest person here). But once you’re in, feel free to let loose because everyone is having fun- a lot of it.

You both just made my day.

Nicolette is such Jersey Trash! DBTH you guys are really slipping...who cares about some tramp that makes up words such as subwayans; thinks places like "mr chow" constitute good restaurants ... (even if you're in the mood for showy chinese food, who the hell goes to mr.chow instead of buddakan?!); and uses such high brow phraseology as "I catched the bus" on her very own personal blog...? DBTH...listen to all of your loyal readers, nicolette in the city has to go, or we will..

OMG, is this a belated April Fools joke as well?

Whew, I was concerned this column was attempting to pass as some sort of perverse instance of journalism.

Now I can rest easy...

a. mr. chows is ridiculous - foods amazing. forget the cheesy atmosphere the food is off the hook.

b. that post was hilarious love hearing what other people do and about what its like at those awful nightclubs. next time lets get some video going.

c. S - you're a herb. you dont speak for everyone on this blog bc if you did you'd get what is clever about these posts.

suzie wong has been around for a while now, and pink elephant has been around for a loooong time...
why do we even need someone reporting about what it's like to party at these clubs??????

I had to read the other commenter's replies to make sure everyone else thought this was as much of a joke. I feel like this a review targeted at people who have no reason to be in any bar/club/lounge/Burger King of Manhattan.

S said...

I give the girl credit for trying, cute but her writing is very amateur. As for the spots that are being covered, been there, done that. I've never heard of this blog until now but why are there reviews done on places that have been around for years?? This is a tragedy.

I agree with Anon, I do give the girl credit for trying, her writing isn't spectacular but this isn't the New York Times either,she has a good sense of humor though I did crack up reading that post

You can't please everyone, so we will just please ourselves.

We think it's great, and guarantee she is here to stay.

And Nicolette says, "I'm not from Jersey, not sure where that came from."

Someone needs to buy Nicolette the newest edition of "English Grammar for Dummies" because she is completely destroying the English language. She might not be from Jersey, but shes still an idiot.

Nicollete has inspired my first post on deleteyourblog.com

This post received many more comments then most other recent posts on this blog, that's a good enough reason to keep her. I think she's great; her selection of venue’s to cover might not be fresh for some, but the content is still interesting. Let’s not be so critical.
