my sister chose this place for me and my twin brother to celebrate our 21st bday with a group of friends.we were told that we would be free before 12 am but if we made it there after 12 that wed have to pay only 10. well we got there at 12.03 am and were told to pay 20 bucks to get in! i was annoyed but decided not to stress it. the music was great! good hip-hop,reggae, r&b, etc, alllll night. the bartender was soooo nice. i was very disturbed by how high the prices were for the drinks (9.50 for a baybreeze!) but decided not to stress it. besides, my friends were buying me the drinks lol. i would definitly recommend this place to others. the bouncer was even nice and u dont see that often. my only complaint would be that the venue tried to make it seem like they had more to offer than they did. i was offered a free bottle of champagne over the phone for my bday but didnt see one at all. and i didnt like that i was played into paying 20 bucks to get it but honestly, it was 20 dollars well spent :-)

Pros: easy to find from penn, great crowd, bouncer and bartenders. very nice

Cons: being told one price then paying another once i got there

Wow, where do I start about this club. I went on a Sunday after the Dominican Day Parade I took a flayers and it read "Foam party with performances by Marcy place and Mr.Vegas". I didn't know how Marcy Place was but I did know who Mr. Vegas was so I went. At the top of the steps you are greeted by security guards that are jail house rude. They tell you to basically strip, I took of my shoes, shirt, fitted, and everything out of my pockets. They took my hat and the due rag and told me I could pick it up after the party but if it got lost or stolen they are NOT reliable for it What type of non-scene is that? I agree to the terms and kept it moving. It was 12.30am when we got in and NO ONE was there the place was dead until 1.30 -2:00am and from there is was a sausage fest, there was like one girl for every 10 guys at the club, No foam and No Mr. Vegas. On top of all That the downstairs bathroom smells like garbage because the an doesn't work. The club overall Look beautiful nice scene coaches, lounge spots on the side of the dance floor but that is probably there down fall because everyone was chilling the girls where straight fat and skinny ones are bitchy. The bartender had an attitude problem ALL OF THEM. She Over charged me for a shot of Aliza $24 dollars and told me wheres her tip for a half cup of Aliza. I'm not a heavy drinker but i know thats just too much, The bouncers cater to the people they know as far as dress code goes. All the guys had hats on and white tee's and sneakers and bandanna's i felt disrespected to have to go through the strip search and see other people wearing what ever. At the end of the night they tell you to use the exit down stairs and the bouncers won't let you exit from where you came so if you left anything with one of them it was there's to keep. What a site, Good luck too them with there fake flayers and bs search to steal your gear.

thursday i went to this club and let me say the manager was horrible, firstly the club is supposed to open at 10 and wasn't open till 1230, secondly, when you run a business esp. a club you should know what you are doing and be personable bc that is how you make money, we were gonna buy a bottle but the waitresses were rude and a complete downfall for the club, so i decided to keep my money, the bartender that waited on us, i can't say a damn thing bad about her, not only was she a beautiful blonde girl she was extremely sweet as well, she is very good for business prob. the only thing that club has going for them..all i can say is if you are deciding to go to REBEL save your money and time and oh wait i forgot the other bartender a light skinned black girl was stealing all night i saw the girl not ringing things in and just putting the money in her pocket, great place this was...This place was a complete joke, it'll prob be closed in a couple of months due to all the illegal things going on in this place

I grew up in NY and got tired of the club scene really fast. I made the mistake of thinking I'd been missing something and went to Rebel last night (Sat 5/3/08). At 11pm, no one was there but awkward, out of place stiffs. By midnight, it was overrun with totally trashy types. $50 minimum for credit cards (fine, whatever) but drinks in plastic cups are $10 apiece - which is about $9.50 worth of ice and mixer. The DJ was OK but the crowd was obviously bussed in from Webster Hall (not surprisingly, considering the owner). The bikini-clad stripper jiggling on a platform nearby certainly caught the eye of the guy taking close-ups of her crotch on his camera phone. But when the moron behind the bar (who, seriously, must be someone's unemployable nephew...) charged me $70 for $50 in drinks, my friend and I lost it. Do we look like stupid drunk girls who can't count? I will never be going back. May never venture into a club again if this is what I've been missing.

I went to Rebel on Friday night.,I had a great time with last memories as a result, I ran a tab at the bar with a beautifully blonde and gorgeous bartender named Lydon that was just a pleasure...She informed me that she would be keeping my credit card and also my license and that I would return them when I left, I told her not to lose them, of course I was the one who got drunk and forgot my credit card and license, the following night I went back to the club to see if I had left the card there, As I arrived I saw the bartender walking into work, before I could say anything she said I have your credit card and license upstairt in the safe...this is a statement at how responsible these employees are that this particular club, I was amazed, I never experienced such nice and responsible service where I am from...The bartender brought me to the manager, he informed me he would be right with me and that the cards were locked in the safe, they both provided very nice and professional service....For anyone who is looking to go to a hot spot, with good looking bartenders, and patrons, should high consider club rebel, I honestly had such a great night

Went to Rebel last night for the first time. I was shocked by how big it was. Has 3 floors. A ton of room and plenty of bars. On the top floor, they were playing a mix of hip-hop, reggae and r+b. The DJ was completely on point. He plenty just about every new and old party classic. He was even willing to take requests and was quite nice when approached about requests. All of my friends had a good time. We stayed until 4 am.

i went to rebel this saturday night for a friend's birthday. we were on a guestlist that was supposed to get us in free until 1am, and we got there a little after 11pm.

i do want to say that the guys at the door were very, very nice. they joked around with us on the way in and didn't hassle us at all.

however, when we got upstairs, it was a completely different story. first they frisked us (and everybody else, of course) in a much more thorough manner than i, as a frequent clubgoer, am used to.

we finally make it past the frisking and the woman who's supposed to collect the tickets they give you downstairs says that the girls can go in free but the guys have to pay. there were 11 of us, 4 guys, so you know we're going to spend money. why the hassle after the guy downstairs assured us we were all free? so we try to explain it to this chick but she's not going for it. she says the guys have to pay $20 each (and this is NOT a club that is worth $20).

so we go to leave, but fortunately the guy downstairs was cool and walked us right back upstairs and told the girl that we were all free. thanks, guy downstairs! i wish i caught his name.

but then, after we finally get through all this hassle, we get inside...and there's like no one there. except, of course, for some coked-out 45-year-old blondes in fur coats and their various male counterparts.

and they don't take credit cards? or at least that's what the bartender told my friend. and if they're going to try to charge $20 cover, you'd think they'd at least not serve the shots in little plastic dentist office cups.

the place filled up a little more as the night went on, but it remained pretty crappy, although i did enjoy the music. the cage-dancing thing is not for me, but, if you're into that, they've got it here.

overall, it was a pretty crappy club. it's definitely not worth the hassle they seem determined to put you through.

I just attended the Motherf*cker party at rebel last night. I must say, my friends and I had a BLAST! The place was swarmed with a good mix of people, everyone was friendly and extremely polite. Great music playing in all different rooms to fit certain tastes and the atmosphere and set up is real cool and chic. I would definetly go there again.

We had a group of 8 and the place was mostly empty on a Saturday night at 12am. It started getting a bit busier at 1am. By then we had bought 4 rounds of drinks, when a girl came up to us and told us to leave the table we were sitting at and take all drinks with us because someone has reserved the table! She was also very rude and I can't say I will go back here after this.

We got there a little after midnight, and the place had about 9 people dancing on the dance floor. Maybe 10-20 more people came in between then and 2 am. So, that was disappointing. The space is very cool -- high ceilings, 2 dance floors, and really good music. So it has potential...but it was pretty depressing that it was so empty. The bartender looked bored as hell - for good reason. Maybe it will pick up...but we'll wait quite a while before giving it another shot. Too bad.

An interesting space with an eclectic crowd and neat use of candles but absolutely awful sound for The Original Sinners show. They'll need to get that part sorted out if they hope to make it as a venue.
