I went here for a cousin's birthday and I did get there late, about 1:30 am but they wouldn't let me in without a $20 cover charge and a $50 up front bar tab. I made sure to give them cash! The bartender remembered my face and she was acceptably pleasant, but the atmosphere left me feeling ripped off. I would have never entered if it wasn't my cousin's birthday. I went on a Friday night and will never go again unless I am guaranteed free admission and if I pre-game heavily in advance. Don't waste your money, Slate is a great club just two blocks away on W 21 street with NO COVER CHARGE!!!

The manager treat the staff like a slave, always disrespecting us... if you come here, please leave a good tip for us because we are human being, not dogs.

Pros: nothing

Cons: when you leave

i've been here a couple of times.. the music is ok... but man do people smoke inside here! after 4am they do their bottle service by putting the alcohol in pitchers, and i swear they mix the vodka with water! i get bottle service at other places where the bottle automatically comes with those easy pour tops.. but at imperial, i noticed that sometimes their bottles are brand new and the waitress unwraps the plastic in front of you WITHOUT an easy pour top, and other times the bottle is brought to you WITH the easy pour top on it... this inconsistency makes me wonder what the heck they are doing... recycling half used bottles of vodka?? even at the bar, the drinks are sooo weak, so i'll get a bottle... but a used one? unacceptable!!! and gross!!

This place had the worst service overall. Whoever owns this bar/lounge needs to go out of business. I am an event planner and when I hire staff I make sure they are accommodating and friendly. UNLIKE THIS PLACE!! I went to Spy this past weekend and everyone working that night had their rude attitude on. The bouncers/security was the impolite and rude. If you didn?t move fast enough in the door or out the door you would get screamed at and shoved through the doors. It?s not my fault if there is a line and it?s moving slow. I am a woman?.no need to put your hands on me like that! Also, the bartending service was unfriendly and not accommodating one bit. They had these two girls working at the bar who made it a point to only serve the male customers. Also, if you charge drinks on your credit card I recommend you watch the bill because my bill came out to $48 in total and the girl had the nerve to put a $16 ( not included in the $48) charge to the bill as her tip. So basically she gave herself almost a 35% tip for all the great work she thought she did!!!

Take it from me this place was small like a hole in the wall, there was horrible service, and not worth the hassle of getting into. There are so many better lounges to go to in that area. So in all honest opinion DO NOT GO TO SPY!!!

Pros: The music wasn't bad but many songs did repeat itself.

Cons: HORRIBLE SERVICE!!

1.Really small, and had a bad layout which doesn?t help.
2.The ?bouncers? throw away cigarettes if they find em on your when they search you before entering. (They just toss em, without warning.) I don?t smoke, but I saw them do it to a few people, kinda good so certain people don?t light up in the bar, but they could go about it better.
3.Around 2-2:30, the bouncers would constantly come by the main bar and tell people not to ?lean? on the bar regardless if you just bought a drink or whatever.

So? you pay some cover to go into this small bar/lounge/hole? Then they search you for weapons of mass destruction and cigarettes, and then you have to stand around b/c leaning on the bar is forbidden.

Pros: Not a bad ratio of girls b/c of the specific promotion that night...

Cons: Small, crowded, cover, "no leaning on bar after 2am"

They treat royalty, like convicts. They disrespect and violate all women clientale. Go there and root in the ashes of hell if you want the worst experience in your life. And if you wanna waste all your money. Take it from me and 50 of my friends that never got to see me perform because there boucers pounced all over me and the front door, after me and 15 of my best friends hopped out of an limo. Yo I've been in bar fights, but yo if you clean, you wont be when you leave. D. Flames.

Pros: None false advertising

Cons: If I dont go, I will have fun anywhere else but there.

i had a HORRIBLE time at this place. I went for a close friends birthday party, and everything they promised as part of the package wasn't deliverd.

FUNK MASTER FLEX NEVER EVEN ENTERED THE BUILDING! where was he? who the hell knows, but i can assure you where he WASN'T. How can they get away with that? false advertising 100%

as part of her birthday package we were told there would be one hour open bar, and bbq buffet...never happend.

she was supposed to get a bottle of champage as well...never happend. we felt so bad we got together and got her one (which was overly expensive)

and the crowd...omg. I have been there in the past when it was discoteq and it was a dive back then too, but it was a DIVERSE dive.

did i mention the body search and the mandatory coat check?

or the fact that the rude bartender took it upon himself to take his own tip?

horrible...not worth it at all. save your money, and dont believe anything they say. they will be out of business by the end of the year.

Pros: VERY close to OTHER places

Cons: as soon as you step threw the front door it goes downhill

went there for the halloween party on 10/28....they basically held the line up around 11pm and let people trickle in so slowly so they could collect max cash from the people in line/ pressure that bottle service on those that were freezing.... cover started at 1am for both guys and girls...guestlist basically meant nothing if you got there around 11:30.....cuz u'll end up waiting over an hour just to get in...my guess is that on most nites u wont have to wait like this but i wont give anymore service to a place that tries to take advantage of patrons like this.....

Pros: music was good

Cons: looooooooooong wait for no reason

This location has turned over a few times in recent years and I've been to all of them. My friends and I figured we'd give Spy a shot. Went here on a Saturday night and had a great time. The music was hot and we danced and danced. Good mix of people and the atmosphere was cool. The specialty drinks were quite tasty as well. We'd go back

Pros: music, people, drinks

- 20 - 30 dollars to get into the club
- mandatory coat check --- even if your zip up is part of your outfit you MUST check it or they wont let you in the club.
- no phone service in the club
- extra cheezy atmosphere
- JERSEY -- thats all i have to say about the pple
- the door people, security etc. are all mean and rude.
- The guys that stand next to the roped off "VIP" area wont let you in to see if your friend is inside unless you pay them off and i quote "you know how it works in a club".
Bottom line: there are so many better places to party why choose this place?

With a mix of B&T bachelorettes, college-age clubbers and hip-hop impresario wannabees working the spacious dance floor (and climbing into the raised cage for a little bump and grind), this Flatiron District mega-club may recall raucous,…
