Normally I don't take the time to write reviews or comments but after what I experienced at this bar I strongly feel New Yorkers as well as outsiders must be aware.
"Unless you are white ,you aren't right." They were a few ethnic people in this dreaded bar. Must be because they have a quota to meet. This place was tiny and awful. The BOUNCERS are disgusting, unprofessional and down right racist. The line is long outside but there was nothing happening inside. DJ did not know what music he wanted to play, the man was all over the freaking place with his horrible taste music. The scene in there was so drugged out and FAKE. People pretending to be something they are far from. Thank goodness it was just a friend having her birthday there because I would have never EVER step foot in this forsaken place. Oh yes, if your gay turn back they won't let you in. My friend was on the list to come in and the BOUNCERS treated him like crap because he was gay. I asked them why they wouldn't let him in especially since he was on the list and they stated we don't let his kind in. My friends and I gathered our things and left. On my way out the bouncers were so mature and called me a little bitch. Shame on Gold Bar!! You need to be outside of NYC with your outrageous behavior.

Pros: none

Cons: the whole bar

This place has one of the toughest doors in the city. Brooklyn bred Johnny boy guards that door as if it was his sister??s purity. He has even gone on record saying that he has denied his childhood friends entry (I am talking about the bar here). Once you finally get in, you feel as if you were in Donatella Versace and Christian Audigiers den. Gold and skulls galore. (It is not as bad or tacky as it sounds.) The party doesn??t get rolling till late and Sundays the crowd is a tad more diverse. (aka a bit less eurotrashy). Occasional celebrity spottings can occur. If you manage to get past Johnny, it can be fun. But just remember that not everything that glimmers is true gold. (fool??s gold bar?!?)

I recently went to GoldBar and noticed that the grungy looking guy at the door was in a music video I had just seen recently. I think it was called Turn Away. It was a great video and we had a great time at the bar. Much love to the dirtbag doorman!!

.

I read a lot about Gold Bar before finally giving it a try, so I went 3 weeks ago. I was star struck as soon as I got out of my cab. I see this guy at the door, and im saying to myself, I know him, I know him. It was Jon Lennon. I recognized him for his awesome video on You Tube called "Turn Away". I told him how much I liked the video and his music. He let me in right away and sat me down in the beautiful seat right at the bar. He told me, he'll always save 2 seats for me. So naturally Im thinking he's joking. I go back the other night, Jon saw me walking down the block towards the bar, he gestured to come towards him. As I did, he opened the ropes and let me right in and once again sat me in the same seat! Dirtbag he may be, but that dirtbag knows how to take care of his fans. If your having a hard time getting in, compliment him about his video.....and by all means, check the video out. Its really good!! Kudos to the dirtbag!

Pros: Exclusive place = exclusiive people. No bums. Awesome drinks. Great management.

Cons: Other than the look of the guy at the door (he has that dirtbag look), there are no cons. And that dirtbag is a gentleman. Don't let the grime and lack of showers fool you.

"Out on the town, Goldbar shuttin it down." a line from one of celebrity Nas songs. I became curious as to what and where Goldbar was located so i asked a few friends to take me. We arrived early around 9:30pm for an Addidas party thrown by a young and upcoming sneaker industry head named Ronnie. (whom did a great job at hosting and created a great new addias sneaker: "Black Tie" which i most definately will be purchasing) The party was outrageous. We walked right in without a problem. Mens ties were replaced with custom ties (by unbelieveably gorgeous women) when first entering the door (of course they kept thier own ties). and when we got past coat check and opened the grand glass doors we entered a room filled with fabulously looking people all conversing and having a great time. the decor was fabulous if you ask me - it gave you that rich feel with a hip hop twist. the gold chains droping to the floor from the cieling, the grand chandeliers, the king high throne chairs, the lavish couches and cartier tables were fabulous. not to mention the paintings on the walls were of upperclass people wearing the hip hop chains. Fantastic!! the music was amazing and so was the service. Disregaurd all previous negative comments. Losers wont get in. NOT Goldbars fault. If you ask me, its a great place for models, higher industry leaders, celebrities, the fabulous. Dont name it "trashy" because they keep the TRASH on the street. if you dont get in just keep it movin'. I am sure youll find somewhere else to party. Go to Goldbar - the worst that can happen is you wont get in. Have fun! I know I did.

Pros: EVERYTHING.

Cons: They wouldnt let you take pictures :( that was the only bummer of the night - but expected in a High Class place.

Not sure why this place got such bad reviews from other people- especially those that never went inside? I went there with 3 girlfriends and we had an amazing time and found the staff to be incredibly friendly and accomodating. I absolutely loved it and would definitely go back- great music, fun crowd, friendly staff. I highly recommend!!!

OK, so I heard lots of mixed reviews about this place (mostly negative), but being the stubborn person that I am, I wanted to see for myself. I was hosting a crew of British and Russian girlfriends in town (who, btw, have more money then the entire GoldBar owners combined), so I called the place and asked if I cold get a couple tables. The awfully rude trashy nobody basically told me if I dont have a personal invite from a manager or owner, then I must not be important enough to be invited... ok, so my interest ended there in this trashy place... however, it was not the end...
Few days later we actually ended up there because one of the Russian girls was begging us to go there meet a friend of hers, who (after about 30 min) was finally able to get us in (as reluctant as we were to go in, she was a visiting friend and we wanted to accommodate her). Have I mentioned there was no people in line at the door besides us??? yeah... so, the ugly trashy girl at the door had SUCH attitude, I actually thought she was possessed... I actually had to come some of my Russian friends down, because they were ready to show her what we do to trash like her where we come from...
Once inside we got a table in addition to our friend's table, ordered LOTS of drinks, only to be kicked out of the table when some anorexic (and i am certain underage) girls showed up and were all over the manager and other staff... we actually couldn't believe the audacity of the staff to treat money spending clientele like that...
GoldBar - not recommended to anyone who has class, as it is for trash only. I suggest they rename the place Trash Only, it will be more appropriate... Will NEVER set my foot their again...

Re: "Marie Claire" rated The Gold Bar, "sexiest" bar. I'm curious to know how one gets in? After modeling for ten years, I've been to every hip club from Paris to Hong Kong. No problems "getting in", not ever. What's the "key"to this joints door policy? The clipboard person at the door mentioned something about "knowing the owner"? What?? I wasn't interested in meeting the owner, I wanted to have a cocktail at a highly recommended night club. Being from Los Angeles, I found these outdated door policies hilarious. So I left laughing, but my fiancee was furious. It would have been amusing any other time but I really was quite curious to see the interior, and I was thirsty.

As soon as one i read one of the reviews about Euro Trash, i knew exactly who you were talking about. The female at the door is a worthless piece of sh*t. Gold bar is an extremely upscale classy place. I think having her at the door went straight to her head since all she is some chic with a clip board. Who by the way does not even look like a chic, she reminds me of Peter Pan with her boyish hair and skeletal legs. I have had many problems with her in the past at Cain and Stereo, you pretty much need to kiss her flat @ss at the door so you dont have a problem, if your a pretty girl, she will see you as competition and be rude.
This is a great place to go to just be prepared to get into a physical altercation after meeting Mr.Pan because chances are she/he will p*ss you off

Despite the very poor rating I took a chance at this place the other night. It is just one of the best place in NY. I think most of the people who gave a bad rating were just not able to get in (like people from St Etienne trying to get in the Fish club...). The guy at the door, "little will" is from Scandals, we got in wearing sneakers and polo with my friend but you better show the costume national shoes and at least cartier watch if you are not on any list. I really recommend this place, crowd is just great. Yes, it is full of models but surprisingly enough they are the one who actually put the bottle on the table (I am serious). Chances are that you are not going back to your hotel by yourself...

I take pleasure writing these reviews as I usually find myself writing positive responses about places I visit. Before I drifted over to this place I had just been given VIP treatment at a new restaurant with celebs flanking either side of my table. Then....I arrive at this bar and approach the front door. There are 2 people sitting and one big bouncer standing. I knew the password for getting in and getting a table. I asked if they needed it and they said No. Didnt check our IDs either and both my friend and I are in our early 20s. Ok so cool no prob right? Not so - we walked into the main room and it was completely empty with the exception of a table of older men. Not 15 minutes later the manager or whoever was "running" the show came over and asked us to move. I couldnt believe it. No one was there which I brought to her attention and she said too bad this table is reserved. I asked why we werent told and let her know the password and that we were with a party due to arrive. She dismissed this and then asked us to leave the place altogether. I still cant believe it happened. Quite comical at this point. Unless you are attracted to men in their 60s, bad service and cheap decor I can guarantee this isnt the place for you. Happy hunting.

This place is quite a spectacle, but it's not for everyone. It's a small venue located in the heart of Little Italy, expect only models, celebrities, movers & shakers, and industry figures inside. They like to keep it filled but not to capacity; giving the selected crowd let past the "gold" ropes some breathing room. The music is similar to that of what you would hear at Beatrice Inn, an eclectic blend of new & old. The drinks are fabulous but expect to be done with them faster than usual, the optical illusion the ice they use creates less room for their specialty cocktails in the glass. It's not your typical lounge and their door policy is one of the tightest in the city, but with good reason. If you fit the profile feel free to give it a shot, you'll be pleasantly surprised once inside, but if not you're better off not wasting your time.

I was at Gold Bar on a Saturday night, around 12pm for a birthday celebration. After waiting outside in the freezing cold for 20 minutes, the rude door keeper never even appologized for the wait. I was invited and on the guestlist mind you, I hadn't show up unexpectedly. I am no expert on bars but I can tell you all the fuss at the door was not worth what was inside. A compiled list of what makes this place not so great:
1) Tacky Gold Decor with Skulls, which is so two seasons ago.
2) Rude Staff, especially the Maitre D, who told me I could not rest my bag on a table unless I bought a bottle
3) The upper east side meet New Jersey crowd was bad, I mean, really, really, really bad.

I could not agree more with the comment posted above, the only way to describe the "lady" at the door is to call her by her true name Euro trash, her attitude was terrible, she pretended the bar was full and by the time we got in (20 min later) the place was totally empty, expensive drinks, mediocre music, I will not be going back to this place.

To think this place is a business is beyond me. Here i come to spend money and have a good time only to be treated rudely from the moment I got to the door. The euro trash female at the door was rude and the staff was too. For this I will never spend a dime at this eatablishment. To think I would pay for this type of treatment is silly. I would not recommend this place what so ever. As a matter of fact I am cancelling a party that was originally scheduled before I had the misfortunate chance of going there. Stay away trust me on this one. With all the places in the city I would try else where

Well, the woman at door should lighten up, I have been a customer since the early days of Cain, since I have given up alcohol therefor bottle service, I am considered a second tier client.
What is one suppose to do? pour bottles of champagne on my head? I DONT DRINK...

Living just around the corner from GoldBar, I was intriqued and pleased when I heard that a new bar was opening up on Mulberry and Broome. How wrong I was. Not only was there the regulation velvet rope and the doormen in cheap suits with the fake earpieces giving it attitude but also the nauseating meatpacking crowd that had deigned to cross 6th Avenue and grace us with their presence. I've been inside just the once and left within minutes. Both the vacous clientele, the rude bar staff, the clinical atmosphere, the awful quasi-Euro techno music and the heinously overpriced drinks all made for a brief visit.Had that been the last of my dealings with GoldBar that would have been the end of it, but the doormen continually wolf-whistle and basically harrass my female roommates and my girlfriend when they walk past the place and they stand in the middle of the sidewalk screaming into their phones in an apparent deliberate attempt to obstruct and annoy any locals who pass by. My only joy is the constant stream of glitterati-types constantly that I encounter, streaming out of the place and into a waiting cab telling one of their beautiful friends what a dump the place is and how they will never be coming back again. Good riddance. I hope the wretched place goes out of business very very soon. And given that the velvet rope outside never seems to have a queue forming around it, even at 12am on a Saturday night, it probably will.

Both the vacous clientele, the rude bar staff, the clinical atmosphere, the awful quasi-Euro techno music and the heinously overpriced drinks all made for a brief visit.Had that been the last of my dealings with GoldBar that would have been the end of it, but the doormen continually wolf-whistle and basically harrass my female roommates and my girlfriend when they walk past the place and they stand in the middle of the sidewalk screaming into their phones in an apparent deliberate attempt to obstruct and annoy any locals who pass by. My only joy is the constant stream of glitterati-types constantly that I encounter, streaming out of the place and into a waiting cab telling one of their beautiful friends what a dump the place is and how they will never be coming back again. Good riddance. I hope the wretched place goes out of business very very soon. And given that the velvet rope outside never seems to have a queue forming around it, even at 12am on a Saturday night, it probably will.

Pros: The music, atmosphere, prices, decor, staff, doormen are all driving customers away

Cons: The place is still in business

Me and my 2 friends went to this place on a rainy thursday night. The rude,nasty,smug girl at the door would not let us in. We roll to all the hot spots with no problems, but this girl was on a power trip. I normally wouldn't have cared, but on a rainy night that was dead to not let us in was crazy. I flashed my Amex black card to her and told her she just lost her owner a ton of money for the night and I told off that smug guy also. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PLACE.

my friends brought me here on a thursday night and I must say I was duly impressed! The decor is really cool and unique and the music not obvious. This place is such a great alternative to other overcrowded nyc spots. Just wish the drinks were cheaper!

Pros: cocktail servers are HOT, cool a*s decor

Cons: prices, hard door

I come to this place a great deal and I have to say it's one of my favorite lounges here in New York or anywhere for that matter. There is a very cool ambiance and it attracts artistic, creative, funky crowd... Unfortunately, one of the owners a South African or English guy always seems to be in a bit of a huff. He wears suits and I believe he likes it when his patrons mirror his image. Which, can sadly skew the crowd to be a bit stuffy at time. He seems a bit pompous and rude to patrons that don't match his image of what exemplifies the cool crowd. Think he needs to take a look in the mirror and realize he isn't the zenith of good taste or an oracle of what is cool. Infact he's dated. Gold Bar is at its best when he is not there.

Cons: One of the owners is stuffy, expensive

I don't usually write reviews but I really like this spot so I figure why not share. It reminds me of my favorite two bars in Paris. Probably, not for everyone. The music is not commercial so some people may not dig. Great vibe and pretty cool Staff . You never feel cramped and the cocktails are awesome although a little small for the high tag. Well, if you get through the door I am sure you will have a blast... Come early because after 12 the door guy gets a little flustered...

Not worth the hype. Just another new place in town that tries to be overly pretentious but has no discretion at the door.

My new favorite. Stopped by initially for an after work drink. The entire bar is gilded which sets up an unbelievablly warm lighting and subsquently... environment. It reflects in the bartenders who take great pride in the drinks they make. They have a menu for drinks but ask your bartender for a suggestion with your favorite spirit as they shake and stir a huge array of bevis that aren't on the menu. Music is like nothing in the city... it crosses all genres and feels constantly new and fresh no matter how many times I've been. Lot's of pretty people but no attitude. Lastly, get the truffle fries.... they are ridiculously good.

Pros: Atmosphere, people watching/meeting, music

Cons: Pricey endeavor but what isn't

Classic drinks made with premiere liquors and choice ingredients greeted my friend and I when we pulled up a plush pink bar chair. Showman bartenders along with pretty cocktail waitress made the prices bearable. Careful, we came at 9pm and left at 4am. Not sure if it was the drinks, comfortable chairs, lighting or the mingling crowd but hours of time slip by scary fast.

Bring a notepad as this venue plays the best music in the city and is a source of new ideas to freshen up your IPOD downloads.. It's about time that someone opened up a lounge that has soul. I live in the neighborhood and I constantly finding myself stopping in for a drink. The drinks might be pricey but I have to say worth every cent as the bartender who create them pour a lot of energy into every drink. To be honest I was shocked by the other reviews. The staff is always really cool, elegant and fun to interact with.

The rudeness, the poor service and not to mention that this " bar " plays some of the worst music in the city, adds up to a terrible time. There is nothing " gold " about this place , more like lead! Must say that the doorgirl who could not make it as a clerk at Lord and Taylors selling luggage, has now found the "coolest" job while broke , arrogant , and living in brooklyn with 3 roommates taking the train to the "gold" bar. For an absolutely terrible time come here, spend money and get insulted, all while listening to terrible music!

it's a new trendy place, likes of which I would usually be a regular. But this Cain-owned st-hole claims to be trendy in Little Italy? we get tables anywhere we go. . . had no problem getting right in. but once in....... never again. it's small. the high clients I was with wanted nothing to do with it. Hopefully it will close soon and the cain owners (who had it right for a hot second) will let go of the dream. . . . guys, it's not happening. nice try, but our nyc elite crew - never doing after party therte again. awful and lame.

There are many great bars/lounges in Manhattan and GoldBar definitely does not belong to them. It is like an attractive woman, pleasant to look at, once she opens her mouth there is nothing but trash coming out. In that same way GoldBar is a small, beautifully decorated lounge, with very unpleasant staff and repulsive attitude. I overheard Jemma, the 2% or so co-investor of the Gold Bar, talk to the people waiting outside in the most uncensored and offensive manner. There is a way to turn people away but the vulgar attitude is uncalled for. I?d rather be surrounded with firm but respectful staff than ever go back to the GoldBar. Instead, check out these selective but well-mannered spots: The Box, La Esquina or the Bar at The Gramercy Park Hotel.

The manager is a smug and misogynistic schmuck. I hated him upon sight. My impression was only confirmed when he opened his mouth. Avoid this pretentious, up-its-own-ass bar at all costs.

This place was terrible! The drinks are ridiculous, it was like $12 for a well-vodka tonic!
It is filled to the brim with the cheesiest, sleaziest button-down with the top two open guys, who offer to "buy you a drink". It makes your clothes smell like cigarettes and is just super lame. You might as well go to a cheesy club in meatpacking or something so that atleast you get more of a club experience with those prices and sleazebags!

The most horrible experience i've ever had at a bar - we made a reservation for a table service which they accepted and when we showed up (9 of us) they told us they didn't have our reservation and they were all booked up. it is the rudest place i've ever been to and i would never recommend it to anyone i know. i am totally cool with places that tell you you can't come in if they are full but alllowing you to make a reservation and then telling you you don't have one is totally wrong - and there are tons of places around that are virtually the same as this one... but have much better organization and vibe.
spend your money somewhere else where they would actually appreciate it.
