I did enjoy my night out over there; music was fine, the service and drinks were not bad at all. Really nice atmosphere. We were a bit skeptical regarding the door policy though..the first time we went there the line was huge, it took us almost an hour to get into the club. The second time we were 9people and we booked a Limo night out package for like $160 , for 1h limo tour and admission in the club skipping the line (limotournyc) that was a pretty good deal! Anyway Ill definitely go back there!

This place is not that great long lines,the door staff won't let you in unless they know you,very rude . The music is alrite, the space inside is tight...I really thought it would be better that what I've seen. They hype it up like its a big happening spot but it really is not. Its not really clean inside and it like a hole in the wall....

This place suck, there is always no space in this lounge, the security never let you in, the bouncer at the door steals money from women because he take 2500 from my sister and it going on almost a year still she didn't get it from him...How is a place that is suppose so hot hire a bouncer that steals from women that he meets there. I want there a few times and I advise women do not go to this lounge is sucks big time and they charge a arm and leg for drinks, when the lounge across the street charge alot cheaper and friendly staff. Also bouncers that do not steal your money......

I was looking for a club to go downtown and I checked my iPhone for reviews and came across Sutra. It was already midnight, so I figured what the hell.

My BFF, Michelle was kinda tired, but I dragged her along anyway. Let me tell you this place is hot. The DJ mixes the best hip hop and club ever. I danced so hard, my feet started to hurt and then I took my shoes off and danced in stockings. Cool college guys. Fun place.

I have been going here every weekend for quite some time for these reasons...

- Guaranteed great tunes - I'm a big music fan and you can count on there being good music most nights of the week- mostly hip hop / party classics

- Love the venue- it's cosy, dimly lit, and pretty mirrored mosaics on the walls, and golden buddha features

- Friendly, fun, down to earth vibe. That pretty much says it all.

I'm not quite sure what ""contraire"" is talking about... But au contraire my friend... Sutra has been a staple go-to spot for me and my orderly party people for months now! From the great music you refer to as noise to the service (always courteous), Sutra has consistently been reliable. For the sake of fun and stress-relief at the end of a long day of work, outlets such as Sutra are a valuable necessity in any neighborhood.

It's a fact that bars aren't for everyone. But, please don't angrily lash out with blatant personal vendettas in a stiff, dry, and, dare I say, disgusting effort to build a case against all law-abiding bars in the city.

Now that that's out of the way... I'll go back to planning my next Sutra gathering.

Thank you and good night.

We who are most well acquainted with this god-awful place are not patrons but those nearby who are victimized by their business practices. They cannot run a club, it seems, without making hundreds of people suffer. The noise, which goes on till closing, is unbearable. Their patrons, drunk and disorderly, fill the street, because they do not understand that it is not good business to liquor up people too violent and drunk already. It is disgusting that any business in this city should operate at the expense of the neighborhood in which they are situated. Too often it has been the epicenter of disturbance and violence. This is not a viable business. It is a dangerous nuisance.

I recently went to the Sutra Lounge to celebrate my husband's birthday and ""Reserved"" a table space for him and a few of his friends. While my husband tried to find parking, I had no problem entering the club but my husband and his friends had a really hard time entering. We were told by an Asian man at the door that he would show me to the reserved area and when my husband arrives he would escort them in. When my husband got to the door, a very unprofessional black bouncer told him that everyone had reservations here and that he needed to go to the back of the line and wait like everyone else. My husband asked him ""if everyone has a reservation, what makes the club so special"". After arguing back and forth with this man, I received help from a blond waitress who asked the Asian man to please let my husband and friends come to our reserved area. \r
\r
Upon entering the lounge, it was hot, stuffy and the steam maker had a foul smell. The so called ""Reserved"" area had other people sitting there already which the waitress had to make them leave. We were given a very limited list of bottled drinks, an ice bucket and some cheap plastic cups. We had barely any room to dance....needless to say, we made the best of a cheap experience. The space is not worth paying over $200 and there was nothing special about the experience here. The music was ok and I believe the DJ is a little over rated. I advise that if you go to the Sutra Lounge, please don't reserve and just pay the door fee...you will have the same experience and keep more money in your pocket!

Sutra Lounge made my Dazzling Decade Kickoff (aka birthday) party such an awesome experience.

From the moment I called to make the reservation to the moment I got to the door, I was treated with the utmost professionalism. Two gentlemen walked me towards the VIP area and formally introduced me to our server for the evening, who was both sweet, hospitable, and very accommodating.

My party guests felt so great enjoying one another's company in their own privacy and comfort, and having a bottle of GreyGoose and mixers right at their fingertips. The bouncers made me feel like a goddess, showering me with ""Happy Birthdays"" and looking out for my guests. The music, overall sexiness, and vibe were perfect for us, too. Our photos are hot!

I'll recommend Sutra to anyone and everyone I know, and plan future events with them. SUTRA rocks!

Don't really care to get a great deal on drinks and just want to dance your butt off, well Sutra is the place for you. Located at the border of the LES, East Village, this lounge is a cross between an Indian hideaway and a sultry red velvet room. My friends and I decided to head out to Sutra because we felt like dancing. The DJ made us happy and we didn't need to get to the bar in the front. There are 2 floors but we generally stayed upstairs to enjoy the hip hop classics and radio jams of now.

Came into town last weekend for my friends bday party, I didn't know what to expect but this place was so luxurious and classy. Tons of good looking people roaming around ;). I got there kind of early and was chatting with the bartenders, they recommended this new drink TYKU. They made me a TYKU mojito and it was in a whole other category of good drinking!! so light and refreshing, supposedly it has less calories too! I was hooked, and bought a few rounds for the bday girl. Soon everyone started piling in and it turned out to be an unforgettable night!!

From the out door staff, to the indoor staff. I was treated like VIP. My party was about 20ppl. I had a table and bought a bottle. This little curly hair dancing cocktail waitress attended us. She was pleasant to us all night. The DJ was on point. He played all my favorite tracks. My party had such a blast that we ended buying one more bottle. We stayed till the DJ called last call. Thank You Sutra for making it such a great night. Ill be back...

The best place to host a party! I just hosted my husbands surprise birthday party at Sutra this past weekend (Friday night) in the Elliptical Room and it was fantastic. I was able to bring my own food and decorations with out any problems and our waitress, Liza, was extremely nice and did an excellent job making sure we had everything we needed. The DJ was on point, playing hip-hop and reggae. We had a little over 40 guests, which was fine because people were in and out of the room. The only downside to the club were the bouncers. There was a very long line outside and a few of my guests were waiting outside, so when I asked the bouncers to let them in for the party, they said NO and told me to come back in 10 minutes!! I immediately told Liza and she spoke to the bouncers and I was able to get my guests from the long line and inside for the party. My husband and our guests all had a great time. Thanks Sutra!

I had my party in the elliptical room sat night. It was great. The manager was great, so was my hostess! The door was a little chaotic but the security guys were great also. They just had me bring my friends to the front. Dj rob flow was great also.

I visited the lounge on January 9 along with 2 of my other friends. We arrived a little before 9:00p.m. We entered the club to find only ourselves and 2 other parties. We looked over the place and picked a perfect spot in the corner. Shortly there after I went to the ladies room and was approached by the bouncer informing me that I had to check my coat. I replied to him was it the lounges policy,because my coat was being attended to and not just thrown over seats to take up space. The bouncer replied well the manager told me to tell you. At this point we were only there for about 10minutes and I was already a little bothered because one large party had all there coats on the seating area and nothing was ever told to them.
I checked my coat and so did the rest of my party.

Soon after the waitress comes over to our table once we had been sitting there for over 15minutes and places a reserved sign on the table in front and next to us. At this time and never before the young lady says these two tables are reserved and you have to move when they come. Question is where they reserved cause we were siting there,because it was not reserved when we the club opened. FYI they informed us it was for bottle service when their VIP table was empty.

We sat down and everyone else was being served not once did the waitress(cause there was only one) came 2 ask us if we would like a drink. After going 2 get our own drinks from the bar and being there over 30 minutes then the waitress proceeded to address us.
These very important people did show up and we were dismissed and disrespected from the owner to the waitress in the lounge. I will never go back.

For all those who've posted negative reviews...I just don't understand. My experience was completely different. Yes Sutra isn't huge...but how many NYC spots are? The decor was sultry and inviting NOT low budget as some suggest. Sure they have a no nonsense approach at the door when they reach maximum capacity but it's great...they think about the safety of their patrons not making money. No one in my party had an issue at the door..they were let in pretty quickly. I actually booked my birthday party in the private room off the main dance floor. I coudn't have asked for better service all the way around. We had our own bouncer to ensure privacy, our waitress Eliza was one of the best we've ever had! She was a constant presence making sure we had everything we needed and was fun and engaging but kept it professional at all times. The music was a myriad of flavors. The DJ played something for everyone and mixed it up all night. The vibe at this place was exactly with Ariel said it would be....fresh and $exy. Thanks Sutra....see ya next year!

i have been to this lounge previously for couple of my friends birthdays. so i decided to book a party here for a friends birthday last friday and it was a blast. the party was a last minute event the place accommodated me and my group. everything went perfect from the reservations to the door to the staff and bartenders. the dj was good and it was crowded upstairs, but there was the downstairs where it was a little cooler than upstairs and it was not so crowded. the door staff was on point in terms of security and their policies. the bartenders were quick and acknowledge everyone in my group when they needed their drinks. no complaints here and all of my friends had a good time.

My friends and I had a great time at Sutra this past Saturday. I especially loved the fact that the manager came out to greet us when we arrived. Our waitress was very accomadating and nice to us, she was always available when we needed her, and thou the place was at capacity our service did not suffer. The elliptical room was very pretty and everyone really enjoyed the exclusiveness that came with it. I had a great time celebrating my 21st and I'm very happy that I picked Sutra.\r

This review is definitely owed to Sutra Lounge and their staff! I just turned 30 and since the ending of last year, I was shopping venues etc to plan a private birthday party. I googled lounges in NYC and Sutra showed up on the list among others. After speaking with a staff person and receiving some basic info, I was impressed by that and the pictures from online. After visiting Sutra in person, this was the perfect place to hold my event. Fast forward a few months into early '08 and I continued my monthly email reminders about my party date. After finalizing my contract in Mid May, the excitement and questions flooded in. All staff were very helpful and reassuring with everything. I held my party on a Sunday evening so that I could have invitees only. Sutra's great offer was irresistible! How could I say no? The ambiance the night of my party was fantastic. It was dimly lit inside with candles, incense and rose petals.. they even let me use the tv above the bar to play a dvd with pictures of me the entire night. I was also able to add little candy bowls and touches where I wanted. Overall, my guests LOVED the venue and the staff and owner were great the entire night. I would host another event at Sutra anytime! Shout out to the Ariel, Francesca, John, Dino and the rest of staff on-site Sunday, June 22nd!\r

I held my party on a Sunday evening so that I could have invitees only. Sutra's great offer was irresistible! How could I say no? The ambiance the night of my party was fantastic. It was dimly lit inside with candles, incense and rose petals.. they even let me use the tv above the bar to play a dvd with pictures of me the entire night. I was also able to add little candy bowls and touches where I wanted. Overall, my guests LOVED the venue and the staff and owner were great the entire night. I would host another event at Sutra anytime! Shout out to the Ariel, Francesca, John, Dino and the rest of staff on-site Sunday, June 22nd!\r

Pros: Great Service for Service Men

The Roots 'Rising Down Album release was held at Sutra last Monday night, the venue offered an intimate setting among fans and music industry folks alike. I was about to head home for the night around 1am when my friend texted me that Mos Def was right outside, so I stayed later than anticipated. Lucky that I did or I would have missed the highlight of the night when ?uestlove got on deck and everyone just flowed with it, creating the good connective vibe amongst everyone. The music kicked off and cheers erupted. Mos Def and Black Thought got on the mic and basically rocked it which was very exciting to see. The party went on well past 2am but I can?t party like I used to on a weekday so it was quits for me after they got on. \r
\r
Just a week later I was at the Erykah Badu and The Roots show at Radio City Music Hall and Black Thought actually shouted Sutra out from center stage as the place to be for the after-party. Sutra was packed but not to the point where you simply cannot enjoy yourself. Upstairs was ?uestlove and downstairs had DJ Spinna. Both of them played some really great music and a few members of the Roots were there along with Mos Def who was there just chillin with his gf in the corwd. Only in New York...gotta love it!\r

Pros: This place respects music and people

Cons: The secret of how cool this place is is getting out

.

I've been going to Sutra for nearly 4 years. It amazes me how in all this time it has never gotten stale. Every weekend the DJ's are on point and every week somthing great is going on. Last week the The Roots did their Album release party and Mos Def performed while Questlove DJ'd! I mean thats what Im talking about! Over the years this two floor lounge has blown up and the weekends can get really busy.. but I just make a reservation by calling and asking to put my name on the list. We've never had a problem getting in, the vibe is always good, the people are cool and the service is great. Its always my first recommendation for any of my friends birthdays or whatever. Love it.

I was disappointed to have my birthday party at Sutra, Lets just say dont get deceived by the website and clip they show. Old furniture, much smaller than what you'd expect, I mean TIGHT is not even the right description. If you intend to go dancing with a couple of friends then may be its an ok place, of course if you bare getting an elbow from the crowd every once in a while; If you're having a party of 15 for example, then you'll literally fill up half of the club. If you're planning to go hang out and talk then prepare to shout out loud all night long. Yes, they do have a second floor down below, abit more quite but its stuffy, abit smelly and the DJ is not as good. Service at the bar is not something i can say much about since I had a bottle service at one of the back tables even though i was promised a table by the dance floor. By the way, you pay a $40 mandatory on top of the bottle price. \r
\r
On a positive note, I have to give some Pros to Sutra: The DJ on the main floor was really good, he played a good mix, even from the 80's but mainly hiphop. If thats your taste then you will Love IT. Our Host was nice and accomodating, I give her credit for that. Line at the door was easy pass, non of my friends complained, non of them paid, and if they did it would've been only $5 excluding ladies who are Free all night. \r
\r
Will I ago again, probably NOT!!

Pros: Best DJ's in the East Village.

Cons: no parking.

I booked this club from my 30th for a few reasons:\r
1) They had a room that could accommodate myself and my guests.\r
2) The door policy is absurd and the dress code is very relaxed. My friends did not have to worry about waiting on line for an hour and then getting turned away because they are wearing sneakers (that probably cost $500, lol). \r
3) All the good reviews here, something must be good about this place.\r
\r
PRO's\r
John who was managing the door was a gentleman. He took great care to make sure we were fine several times throughout the night. I reserved the elliptical room which is on the main floor towards the back. The DJ gave me and the other ppl in my party a shout out on the mic several times. The waitress that was taking care of my party was great. The place was PACKED and she still gave great service. I don't remember more than 15 minutes going by without seeing her in our back room asking if we needed anything more.\r
\r
CON's\r
The main floor is smallish - it gets VERY tight. This can be a little overwhelming for people. There are only two or three bathrooms on the main floor and always a line. There are another two bathrooms downstairs. Several of my guests mentioned that the place smelled a little funky but I don't remember that. The crowd there can put off some if they are expecting a uppity meatpacking atmosphere. \r
\r
Disclaimer: My guests and I purchased about 5-6 bottles. That could easily have influenced our great service. But reading other reviews, it seems like the service here is generally good to everyone. \r
\r
Thanks again to everyone at Sutra for a good night.

These people do not know how to communicate! I called and asked for information about the rooms and the girl told me that there was a room available that held 60-65 people. My friend also called over the weekend for information and they told her that the same room only held 30 people but was still available. The person from Sutra also mentioned that they do not accept bookings over the weekend but she could email her information to the email listed on the website. So she wrote an email to the address listed on the website saying she wanted to book the room and would follow up in the morning on Monday. When she called on Monday, the room was no longer available. \r
\r
When she asked how this happened, they told her that they DO accept bookings on the weekend and must have been busy when she called!!! So they were busy...and told her false information...and now they are annoyed with HER about the situation AND she doesn't have a location for the party!\r
\r
This is absurd because they left her with the impression that all she had to do was call and give her credit card information on Monday. Ridiculous and completely dissatisfying.

Everything was great, it could not have turned out better!\r

We had a great time on Saturday night at Sutra. It was bumpin' from start to finish, the waitress was mad cool and everything ran smoothly. I was a lil' worried with the whole party bus rollin' in with a big crew but with all the help from Sutra it worked out perfectly. I highly recommened it and I will definitely party there again!

I had my birthday party there last night and it was great! Ordered bottle service and our waitress was fantastic! Very friendly and always accessible when we needed her. However, this place got PACKED in a HURRY! around Midnight it was wall to wall people, which is fine, however that unfortunately met that half of my guests coming for my birthday couldn't get past the door since they were at capacity until like 2-2:30 in the morning. Which is my friends' fault for coming late, because they warned us to get there before midnight.\r
\r
So, if you plan a party there, make sure you don't have fashionably late friends...otherwise you won't see them that night, especially if they're guys.

This place wasn't too bad. The only tough thing was getting in the place! The coat check is right by the door and very badly organized! You have to muscle your way through the crowd to actually get into the lounge. My suggestion: head downstairs.

I threw my 21st birthday party at Sutra and the managment was pretty helpful with everything. The bouncer was very relaxed with admission when he found out that we had a table. They played great music but the only draw back was the fact that it was a too crowded to dance!! We got there around 12am and the place was packed. It's a fun place to go to but make sure you get there early.

I celebrated my 22nd at Sutra, along with two of my girlfriends and it was amazing. At first I was nervous because it was my first time going to Sutra, and I read on the website that each table reservation has a 1 bottle (of liquor) minimum, and the cheapest bottle is $165. \r
\r
I couldn't afford to make a table reservation so I made a General Admission reservation for a group of 25 two days prior, and even though it was pretty much last minute, the owner did what she could to fit my group in. Our party stayed upstairs (ground floor), and my guests began arriving at 10pm- at that time the music was somewhat mellow, but still Hip. As the night progressed the DJ began playing the hottest music: hip-hop, REGGAE, r&b remixes and even LATIN!! By the end of the night he had everyone out on the dance floor, not one of my guests was sitting down. The best part was when he gave a shout-out to me and my two girls for our birthdays...I didn't even have to ask for that, it was totally unexpected! =)\r
\r
Sutra is chic and trendy, with an upbeat and lively environment! I checked out the bar downstairs, and the people were having a great time. The bartender was great, she was prompt and very friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better 22nd!

I just celebrated the BIG 30 at Sutra Lounge on Oct. 6,2007. It was great. I took alot of time looking at different lounges and clubs. Many places were too young or just did not respond to my request. The owner of Sutra, Ariel is a great person and a smart business person. She called me back in a timely manner and explained everything to me. I had a party of 20, so I reserved two tables. From the time I arrived I was treated like a star. My guests had fun. We had our own waitress, and the bouncer directed everyone to my tables. \r
The DJ was great he played hip-hop, reggae, and a little bit of everything else. It was crowded but the atmospehere was 100% FABULOUS. I am telling everyone about this spot. A friend of mine is having her birthday at Sutra this coming Saturday.\r
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a great birthday or just come out for good drinks and music.\r
Thank you sooooooooooo much Ariel, Gregory , and Yvette.

After reading all the reviews on Citysearch, I decided to have my birthday party here this past weekend down in the Chakra Lounge. We had the whole downstairs to ourselves for the night and had a wonderful time! The management and staff from top to bottom far exceeded my expectations for the night with their superb service, professionalism, and courtesy to my guests and myself throughout the night. I was worried about having a party anywhere in the city because of the hassle of getting everyone in and guests arriving at different parts of the night. I had NO problems of that nature at Sutra. The security took care of all my guests directing them where to go. Even though the place was getting packed, they made me feel very comfortable not worrying about my guests not getting in. Some of them even felt special learning from the security at the door that there was an exclusive area downstairs where the party was being held. Our bartender was one of the best I've seen in awhile. For a party of about 70, he kept the drinks flowing for everyone without delay. The DJ was great and the music kept everyone moving throughout the night. It started out with a laid-back type of vibe. As the night progressed, the DJ started getting everyone up out of their seats. I wish I had time to go upstairs to check out how the party was upstairs, but I'll save that for another night. The management was an absolute pleasure to work with. They provided me with the personalized attention that I would not get in most places for a birthday party. They checked up on me every now and then to make sure everything was going smoothly. I thought I would only interact with a person from the staff throughout the night. To my surprise, I got to meet almost all the management, as far as I know, throughout the night. They were very kind, generous and great to interact with. To all the management and staff, thank you for a wonderful birthday and I'll be sure to visit again!

I had my party at Sutra on Saturday August 4th. I must say I had a great time, and I'm sure everyone in my party, (about 25), also had an amazing time. I loved everything about this place, the ambiance, the music, the decor, the service, even the bathroom ( lol). I would recommend this place to anyone. Kudos to Sutra, they really made sure I was happy the entire night. Thanks for making my birthday, unforgettable.!!!!!!!!!

I had my bday party at Sutra last Friday. We got there early so we had time to ourselves which was great bcus the rest of our party came later. The music was mixed just like the crowd. They even had a live trumpet player backing up their awesome DJ. The drinks were affordable plus we popped bottles. I know I had a great time n Im sure everyone else did. Thanks to the owners and the staff, they were great.

I had my 33rd birthday party at Sutra Lounge this past Sat (Cinco de Mayo) and had BLAST!!!! I found the lounge on Citysearch and the website was so informative and I just knew instandly that this was the place to have my party. Other lounges in the city wasn't willing to accomodate me and my guests (70 to be exact!) because of Cinco De Mayo, but Ariel (the owner) was more than willing to accomodate me and my guests. I was given a tour of the Sutra Lounge and fell in love with it immediately. I chose the Chakra room (lower level) to have my party. I was given the privilege of having the room to myself with my guests for a couple of hours, then opened it up to the public and it worked out so well! The catering service was awesome, food was great!!! Phalon the Sutra Lounge coordinator was a pleasure to work with in getting the menu together and setting up the party. The night of my party, the bouncers were so kind to my guests (and so GORGEOUS)!! There were other parties going on at Sutra and it was PACKED, but that didn't cause a problem. The Bouncers had it under control, there was enough space for all, and both levels of the lounge were crowded with beautiful party people! The DJ was spinning some HOT music and was on point from the time I arrived until the lights came on, and the bartendar in the Chakra room knows how to make some AWESOME Drinks, I was soooooo tipsy I couldn't remember everything. But my friends had so much fun, and said they will come back to Sutra Lounge. I MOST definitely will have my next party back at Sutra again. If you want to have a party or just have a get together, Sutra Lounge is the place to be. BIG Shout out to Ariel, her staff, the DJ, Bartendar and most def the Bouncers.

Other lounges in the city wasn't willing to accomodate me and my guests (70 to be exact!) because of Cinco De Mayo, but Ariel (the owner) was more than willing to accomodate me and my guests. I was given a tour of the Sutra Lounge and fell in love with it immediately. I chose the Chakra room (lower level) to have my party. I was given the privilege of having the room to myself with my guests for a couple of hours, then opened it up to the public and it worked out so well! The catering service was awesome, food was great!!! Phalon the Sutra Lounge coordinator was a pleasure to work with in getting the menu together and setting up the party. The night of my party, the bouncers were so kind to my guests (and so GORGEOUS)!! There were other parties going on at Sutra and it was PACKED, but that didn't cause a problem. The Bouncers had it under control, there was enough space for all, and both levels of the lounge were crowded with beautiful party people! The DJ was spinning some HOT music and was on point from the time I arrived until the lights came on, and the bartendar in the Chakra room knows how to make some AWESOME Drinks, I was soooooo tipsy I couldn't remember everything. But my friends had so much fun, and said they will come back to Sutra Lounge. I MOST definitely will have my next party back at Sutra again. If you want to have a party or just have a get together, Sutra Lounge is the place to be. BIG Shout out to Ariel, her staff, the DJ, Bartendar and most def the Bouncers.

Pros: Great owner, ambiance, music, staff, food, service, bouncers, the list goes on and on, just GREAT!!!!!

Cons: Wish it can stay open to 6am...we didn't want to go home! :)

I just want to say thanks to Sutra for helping me celebrate my birthday and for having such an accommodating staff. My guests enjoyed themselves thoroughly and I had a wonderful time(or so I was told, lol, as I couldnt remember much of anything the next day). I hope you all enjoyed the cake(scrumptious red velvet). The Dj was great! Thanks to Gail for being such a wonderful waitress, and to the bouncers Gregory and my dude with the braids for being so kind to myself and my guests. You guys are great and Sutra was sexi as hell! Loved the chocolate coverd strawberries...loved the Moet more, lol.We'll def. be back soon.

I just wanted to thank you for the best birthday party I've ever had. I had such a wonderful time on Saturday night. I received multiple compliments on everything for the location and space, to the decor, to the music and especially on the bartender Menelik (he was wonderful). I know everyone had a great time and that's all I really hoped for. I feel the party was a huge success and you have been nothing but accommodating throughout the entire process, so again, thank you so much. I will definitely be adding Sutra to my list!

OK...the dreaded company Holiday party...the location is key to making it fun or a nightmare. I work in a kinda stuffy upscale place, and of course I was put in charge of finding the venue. I remembered Sutra because my friend had a birthday party there, she had like 200 ppl, and I just remembered how cool it was that there were two floors and like 5 different sections to hang out in, plus plenty of room to dance. Yes it was East Village, but not dive barish at all. There was a raw sophistication that I though would be perfect to entertain all these buisness like people, somthing out of the norm, but up to standard. Needless to say, Sutra was beyond helpful when it came to catering, open bar and every detail that otherwise would have made this task a nightmare for me, they even secured there Friday nite DJ who is AWSOME....Hip Hop yes, but Reggae, Latin and even Rock n Roll. Im writing because thank God and thank Sutra it was a great success....THANK YOU...and Merry Christmas ;)

In Short
The upstairs bar and lounge glows in shades of red, with the velvet draping and the low lighting adding to the sexy air. Another party rages just down the mirrored stairs. The cave-like basement room has a separate DJ…
