This is a place where you can wear anything and be anyone, my kind of party. It's about the music not about what you are wearing and who you are dancing with. I go dressed in tights, a sports bra, and some dance boots (or if i feel

Pros: yuppies hate it

Cons: hippies love it ( the BO can get a little intense )

I used to be one of those "club kids", frequenting DJ parties and I still go to the Miami Music Conference every year.
I felt like this place was a time warp! I felt like I was back in a rave! Hello 90's! LOL
From the minute we walked in, we were told very rudely there was a mandatory coat check as the girl was extremely rude! A guy who looks like Herman Munster, stood in front of the coat check to make sure we checked them.
My friends and I headed to the bar to get drinks and I gave the bartender $20 for my drink and he never gave me back change! I had to ask for my change, since he "forgot"?!
I can understand that everyone goes there for the music, but... come on. There are plenty of better, more upscale places to go to in the city to hear good music.
I have to say it was also the ugliest crowds I have seen out in NYC!
I won't be venturing back to this dump!!!
Don't waste your time...

I was completely done with the club scene since I was 19 (went clubbing A LOT) until I found Club LOVE! I'm in Brooklyn most of the time, but LOVE is the ONLY place in Manhattan I know will be a guaranteed shhweet time. Fridays are regularly Dub/Grime and saturdays are mostly house/techno. Like a lot of the other reviews have said, LOVE holds no b.s. People come for music and to shred that dance floor. I've NEVER seen a crowd like I've seen @ LOVE.

The CONS talked about are true. Sometimes the cover is too much for a party that's empty. It can be dark. A new security team input a new coat check policy, etc and used to be really unfriendly. After awhile, they relaxed. But in comparison with a lot of clubs in Manhattan, I'd take LOVE any day.

Pros: World reknown DJs, sound system, atmosphere, open late, lounge area

Cons: people who trash talk this place

This is what clubs are supposed to be: Nothin' but fun vibe, reasonable drink prices, no attitude, staff as cool as the crowd, and the best sound system I've heard in NYC. It's worth checking their calendar online(musicislove dot net---doesn't that address say it all?!?) to see what kind of party they're having that night. It's an eclectic mix of DJ's: from lesser knows right up to all stars like Q-Tip and Sasha (yes, of Sasha & Digweed fame). These guys play here because the vibe to the place is all about keeping it real, not the sell-out stuff you see at these rip off clubs that now dominate the scene. No pressure to buy expensive bottles, just to have a good time. Great dance floor with another cool black light room, and then a chill room regulars call the "Fraggle-Rock room". Like any real club, it tends to get really going later on. Every time we've been, we've had fun. Highly recommended indeed.

Maybe I was there on an "off" night, but I dragged a bunch of my friends here on a Friday night based on the good reviews I read. The review that says no velvet rope, hah...well there was NO ONE on the line, but we still had to be let inside the (not velvet, more like seat belt material) rope. The bouncer says "The cover is $15, too bad you didn't come 5 minutes earlier cause it was $5" (and laughs). There was some wierdo guy standing out front saying how great the place is and thet the music is "bumpin". So we decide to go down the stairs to have a look before we paid the cover. The hallway down is spray painted with strategically placed flourescent and glow-in-the-dark grafiti, which might impress a Back Street Boy or Cyndi Lauper wannabe. We peer inside, despite the dirty look from the woman trying to collect the cash, and see 4 people and a smoke machine. They looked excited that someone or anyone was coming in, but we took one look and walked out laughing.

I was looking forward to going to Love since I had read so many great reviews and had been looking for a fun place to dance that played house music. Unfortunately the night I chose to go (a Friday night in November) they decided to have a Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd night, which was needless to say pretty lame and incredibly disappointing. We waited it out, despite the boredom, but the music that came on afterwards was hardly an improvement (trance?) so we left. As someone else mentioned, very aggressive coat check policy. The worst part was that we had to pay a cover for such a disappointing time.

This place is great..it has a trippy feel inside and its got a real chill crowd...everyone is just having fun and doin their own thing.dance if u want, drink if u want, sit in a plushy cave and lay in the dark with friends if u want..or even by urself! drink avg nyc prices but def worth the money. Only con is that if u leave an item or anything around they scoop it up right away and bring it to coat check. happened to me many of times! ANd they even try to charge u another dollar! Oh well..its ny! still great place.

Pros: atmosphere, location, beats, crowd

Cons: swiping clothing or bags left on the sides

This place has got superior sound and loads of visual treats. A super pleasant staff brings it all together. Just go there! Ok...so I'm not 25 anymore...shoot me. This place is what it is all about club-wise. I still love to kick it and have left 25 behind years ago.

Also, from a DJs point of view, it is a great place to play!

The decor at Love is fantastic whimsical, comfortable and ethereal. It's easy to relax in this subterranean psychedelic cubby. Its equipped with a quiet waterfall, rocky walls and uber friendly staff that mingle with patrons to ensure they are having a good time. The most notable feature of this little cave club is the fuzzy inviting purple recreation of Dr. Seuss Whoville. So you can grab a drink and get cozy up in your Whohabitat with friends, dance in their spacious back room or work on an art project in the back room. The club host several different parties so you never know what kind of crowd youll run into on any given night unless youre on the Love guest list. Its definitely a place youll want to come back to.

No bottle service, velvet ropes, or nonsense like that. Just a breathtaking soundsystem, some of the best DJ's in the world, a real dance floor, and an always chill and mixed crowd there for one reason and one reason only- to get down.

You won't believe a place like this really exists!

If you like nice bartenders, above average sound systems, chill people, and dancing you should go. Period. It's not that complicated, this is a great club. The pros of trying it out are that you will enjoy at very little cost great beats in a very welcoming and intimate atmosphere free from the posturing of "juice heads" and other undesirables. The cons are...I'm at a loss. If this is not enough to convince you, you may be swayed by Love's bonus feature, an amazing fur covered loft that provides patrons with cozy snuggle caves and a sort of adult jungle gym.

The place has the best sound system in NY, bar none. There is no velvet rope, and no attitude--just a very chill crowd who is there to hang out, dance, and have fun. Cover and drinks are the best deal in the city too. Every time we've been, we've had a blast. Like any club, the vibe depends on the night/party. I've never felt like it was a "young" crowd.

Went to the URB Magazine Almighty DJ Halloween Party w/ Tommie Sunshine. If you're 19 - 22, and love dancing and breakbeats, or 4 on the floor, this is a great place to get you're groove on. The crowd consisted mostly of young breakers, which is always refreshing to watch and I readily joined in. If you're over 22, you'll feel overly mature to hang here though. The decor is dark, dungeony, with tripped out mirror's in the bathroom which make you appear upside down and inside a sphere, waterfall flowing from the cieling in midair with a light show casting on the water, and little areas to sit behind the waterfall designed to be a pillowy cave. Excellent lights, sound system, and open space in this basement level club. If I were 5 years younger, this place would have been a beautiful place to kick it.
