Between the rudeness of the staff and Prey charging a $20 cover, I would say this place will be expected to close in a few months. My friend and I was dumb enough to allow the doorman to convince to pay a $20 cover and we would have a good time. Keep in mind that we are both 28. We walked in and the place was filled with underage kids drinking and acting rowdy all over. It was a disappointment.

I made the mistake of having my husband's Surprise Party at Prey last weekend. In the beginning everything seemed okay. Our waitress Mariah was great. However, there was a group of men seated near our large group of 50 people (so I definitely brought business to this place) who were obscenely drunk. One of the men decided to pour his entire drink on my cousin, which angered my cousin greatly. We had a NYC Cop part of our group who was able to calm things down, but what happened afterwards shocked me. The manager came up to me and blamed our group for the disturbance saying that the drunk man was related to the owner and that we should consolidate our group and spend more money or LEAVE! Our group was a mixture of Black and Latino young professionals, none of whom were drunk and it was interesting that we were the ones blamed for the incident. Afterwards they kept a bouncer upstairs to watch our group and they also let the drunken guy back upstairs and he was walking around pushing people (he pushed me a few times) around and being a drunken nuisance. When I spoke with the bouncer he kindly stated ?To be honest with you, they don?t even want us in here.? Also we paid a cake fee, and they did not provide napkins or even plates & utensils, what was the fee for then? I was so unhappy that this is how things ended up, I did my research to try and find the most suitable place to celebrate my husband?s birthday and accomplishments and all I got was a poorly managed establishment. We still loved Mariah and tipped her well, she was awesome, and wasn?t involved in any of the nonsense.

Cons: Managerial staff

Rude female bartenders. Bad service. Horrible DJ. = Closing in the near future?

Went there for a Birthday party with friends. The place was a ghosttown but the only reason we had fun is because our group is crazy....lol. Instead of coming here...... Go to the store buy a few bottles of goose and turn on your radio and invite your friends to your house.... it will be just as fun but you will save a lot of money.

If you are looking for an underage bar, you have came to the right place. I had planned my birthday here with Kristi the manager. She assured me that the place is perfect for a 25th birthday. The place is disgusting!! The bar was filled with nothing but underage teenagers, some must have even been under 18 years old. I felt like it was a high school party, how embarassing to invite my friends and made them do bottle service. I felt like I was lied to and ripped off. Do not EVER plan your birthday here unless you are looking to hang out with high school kids.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Underage Kids

Perhaps we came on a "bad" night........it is possible. The bartenders were not very friendly at all, I asked for a drink suggestion and she was rude. There weren't too many people there, and the crowd that had gathered wasn't what I expected from reading previous reviews. Luckily, we moved on to another bar with some friends and ended up having a great night. I would not go back.

Cons: Everything else....

I organized my H.S. reunion all the way from Florida and let me tell you...there were tons of places that I called and the people were down right rude. But as soon I got in touch with Prey, it was nothing but proefessionalism from the start. Kristi, the events planner, was on top of her game. She really made me feel like everything would be ok when left in her hands. Again, I live in Florida so I was a little nervous. On 8/18 the spot was pumping and the music was great. All of my friends were happy to be together again and all of them gave kudos for choosing Prey. The guys really loved the flat screened TVs and some of them checked out sports in between drinks. Next time I have a party, I will definitely check them out again. Go Murry Bergtraum HS Class of 1996!

Went this past Saturday to a friends birthday party. He reserved the top section or VIP area and had an open bar for 50$ per person. Pretty fun night, cool bartenders and chill atmosphere but only drawback- there was NOT A SOUL in the downstairs bar area. Would reccomend, but wanted to see a larger crowd in addition to my friends ( I like the craziness of busy bar/clubs). Had a conversation with the doorman and manager outside- pretty nice guys.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I called up the manager to inquire about booking my 25th birthday. She kept telling me that the place is very similar vibe to the places in the Meatpacking so I went ahead and booked it at Prey. When we arrived, not only did the doorman not have our guestlist. He made our entire group pay a $15 cover. The place was a Frat bar...was it some kind of joke? The manager was no where to be found. What a waste!! We ended up leaving after an hour. Thanks for ruining my birthday

I've been going for the last few Saturday nights and have yet to be disappointed. They play great music (classics and pop), aren't pretentious at the door, and seems to always have a good crowd - good looking, nice people just out to have a good time. Great Bartenders and Waitstaff... Both Hot and Nice very hard to find the two of those in NYC Especially at a BAR. If you like to drink and dance, head to PREY

I was at Prey on sat night and me and my friends had the best time...
My friend planned her birthday there and it couldnt have worked out better!!! The staff was incredible and the service was perfect. The waitresses were on point and we never had to ask them for anything. The bouncers were very professional and it was an overall great experience. The DJ played for the crowd and my friends requested a ton of songs and the DJ played everyone of them. I would recommend Prey for anyone and everyone. 5 stars from me!!! Ill be back again and again.

I had no Idea Prey had a kitchen.... SO my boys and I after work one day stopped in for our daily after work drink and decided to order something to eat... Ended up getting a bunch of apps. We had no idea PREY had such good food... Everything homemade so we were told and everything fresh..........

I recently planned a birthday party here for a group of 30 people. We called the bar a few days before and they told us that my party would get a separate area for our group. When we arrived, the SMALL bar was way OVER crowded with B&T people under 21 and no separate area as promised. I spoke to the manager and he didn't seem to care who told me what - he just said "sorry" and walked away. He was rude, nasty and didnt seem to care that he ruined my birthday celebration!!! If you want to have a bday party here and your friends are over 21 stay CLEAR of this place. The music isn't that great, the crowd isn't worth looking at, and management could really care less about taking care of their patrons. Also this place is NO way close to being a lounge its more of a college bar than anything...dont be FOOLED!!!! Go someone with a lot more class! Dont be fooled by all the "good reviews" like i was - trust me this place is AWFUL!!! My friends and I will never go back!!

Arrived at the lounge during happy hour hoping to lounge and drink. When my boyfriend and I got there the bartender told me we couldnt go to the lounge because was booked for a private engagment and had to sit in the bar area. Although we didnt see anyone in the lounge we complied. The drinks we had were good but pricey. The so called 'happy hour' doesnt really exist. the only thing that was discounted was coors beer. Would not reccommend if looking for happy hours deal. even thought the boost of it on their site.

Pricey at the door, but once you get in it's worth it. Good drinks, good looking women, and a generally hard-partying, fun crowd.

Upon arriving, the door man was extremely professional and nice. The inside is somewhat "normal" with high ceilings and a long bar. The Bartenders were beautiful and attentive, but a little ungrateful when receiving tips. The DJ was playing a great mix of the latest music and doing a good job keeping the people in groove. The space is long and far, with tables in the back and upstairs behind the DJ- booth which makes a great spot for a night of bottle service if that is your thing. Overall a great establishment and not over crowded like Club Deep next door.

You will certainly be the prey at this bar/lounge! Not only was the bartender sneakily giving me a cheaper drink than what I was asking for, but had the nerve to tell my male friend not to tell me! Then my bag ended up in the ladies room on the floor next to an attendant who didn't find it necessary to alert any one at the bar that she had discovered it in the bathroom. I lost my wallet and iPod at this so called "trendy hotspot" I've been to dive bars that are more honest than this place. If you must go, make sure you watch the bartenders and your belongings closely!

There's not really anything going on in the Flatiron area for Happy Hour but Prey definitely has a great scene going on. For a lounge, the staff was VERY nice. Especially probably the only place that has great drink specials!! I really have nothing bad to say about this place & would suggest it to anyone.

From looking at the website for this bar, it makes it appear a lot nicer than it actually is. There are two levels, a lower level with a bar area and a small lounge area and an upstairs that has a 2nd bar and another lounge area. The decor on the lower level is nothing special and kind of dingy looking, upstairs is a little nicer. They do have daily happy hour specials with $3 beers on Fridays. Unlike some of the reviews on the site, there were issues with being charged extra. They had a DJ playing pretty good music (top 40/hip-hop) and it draws a racially mixed crowd. The bathrooms are in good shape. Comes off as a place that tries a little too hard to be cool and hip and falls a tad short.

Trendy looking bar, loud music, and happy hour that lasts until 8pm. Don't trust the website about deals with food -- the bartender told me they didn't exist. Also, one of the bartenders tried to sell me my Amstel light bottle for $6. I had to remind him that they cost $3. Aside from that, the place is OK.

My birthday party at Prey was by far a memorable experience. The manager promised my party a table and actually stuck to his word. I hate going into places where everyone is overly crowded. When you walk in you can feel a good energy from the crowd. Definitely no pretentious individuals roaming around.

I went Citysearch and inquired about hosting a birthday. I got a phone call the next day from the manager. She was nice enough to set aside for us a table. I also got a comp bottle for bringing such a large group. Everything was perfect and the night was great. The dance floor was fun but crowded. DJ played great music until closing. Highly recommended

I was @ Prey last Thursday with a few co-workers, not really wanted to be out due to a bad day at work.. But the bartenders there make everyone feel like there is nothing else outside the doors. All I have to say was that the bartenders are possible the best and hotties in NYC... I strongly recommend checking this place out...

There is no other place to start off your Friday night in Manhattan than Prey. It's a perfect place to start of the night before you head out the bigger clubs in the area. The DJ was amazing. We got there early around 11pm and everyone was just getting in. By the time we left at 1am, the place was going crazy with such a great crowd. We'll be back.

I've been hitting this spot consistently for occasional Happy Hours and Weekends. I went this past Saturday for a friends party and had a ridiculous time! This place gets better and better as the months go on. Everyone with the party was treated like a VIP!The DJ's keep the crowd rolling, the waitresses and bartenders are hot, and the sliders (mini-hamburgers) are awesome. Happy hours are a more smooth tempo, relax for some drinks and food. Thursday - Saturday get poppin' with crowds of hot, cool girls/guys, etc. The thing I like the most is that the door guys, managers, etc. keep things real!! This is NYC, but its cool to be able to hit a great spot and be treated with respect! Anyone who complains about this place is outa their bird...

I was recently referred by a friend to have my birthday at Prey. I called up a week before to have a table reserved and the doorman took care of us once we got there. The DJ played great music which keep my friends and people in the place going all night. I would definitely recommend calling ahead since it does get busy on the weekend.

Prey is always a great option if you are looking for chilled lounged atmosphere. The music is a mix of hiphop, top 40s and classics. The important is that the crowd is really friendly. It's really easy to meet people there that isn't pretentious.

I'm from California and a few months ago I met some guys in Vegas they told us to visit Prey if we were ever in New York..so we did. The music was GREAT! We were there on a Friday night. It was our first time to a "lounge" and we loved the drinks and the music.

I hosted my boyfriends bday at Prey this past weekend. The manager were great to deal with. My guests had no issues getting in and there was NO cover for my guests!
I would recommend Prey to any one looking to host a party in a good looking lounge, with amazing music, without the usual hassle that you get from other places.

We went to Prey last night for some after work cocktails. The Web site said they had $3 drinks and $3 chips and guacamole. When we ordered, the waitress acted like she had NO IDEA about any happy hour specials and then said we had to go to the bar to get those deals. We moved to the bar where the bartender then had NO IDEA about happy hour specials and tried to charge more than the prices listed on the menu?! We tried to explain that their web site was misleading and the bartender replied that those were old deals online from last week. This is NOT a good happy hour bar. I'm sure there are 50 other bars in the city who would like to give you a good happy hour deal. Don't waste your time here.

I had a really incredible night at Prey for my 25th birthday party. We went to Prey last Friday, and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the crowd, the drinks, the staff and the vibe there. It seems like places in the city are getting so cheesy and its getting harder and harder to find a place where you can bring all your friends, know that they will all get in, have a great night and meet a bunch of other great people. Just thought I'd pass on the info....

I threw a birthday party for my best friend at here last week. I can't say enough good things about the place. This is the 2nd party I brought here this year, and I would book this place again in a heart beat. Staff was great, music was great and the doorman was really accomodating to our party. Hope to get back there soon!!!

I have been going to Prey since it opened last summer. and I can say it is the best lounge in manhattan. No pretention at tthe door, excellent atmosphere, quite when it should be and crazy wild packed on the weekends. The atmosphere, the friendly staff, and the AMAZING mixed drinks make this the best lounge in manhattan. Check it out, but be warned, they'll make you feel like home and you may never leave.

We weren't sure what to do this past Saturday night, we heard of PREY from some friends we ended up having a really good time. Iwould definitly reccomend PREY to others. Hot bartenders and great music.

I have a blast whenever I go to Prey. The drinks are fun, the music keeps the party going, and the decor boasts lush lighting coupled with simple design. It's just great! Everyone who works there seems to be having fun, even when they're really busy.

Heard about Prey so I stopped in on a friday night...not overly crowded, yet the owner bought my friends and I a round of martinis, music was really good. Will definitely be back, thanks guys.

Went here with a bunch of co-workers for Happy Hour and had a really fun time. The atmosphere was relaxed and I always love a LONG bar to hang out at. The mixed drinks were quite tasty and the service was excellent. We stayed for several hours and met some great people. We'll be back.

We dropped by this past weekend to see what the hype was all about. My friends and I use to go to the old Tiki Room. What a total make over. The atmosphere was so much better which is no wonder why it was a packed house. I would recommend this spot as a place to check out.

My friend and I attended a private party upstairs on a Saturday night. Drinks and food were average. As the night progressed, it became quite crowded...as I struggled towards the front door I was groped by someone behind me and had no idea which guy it could have been. We were hassled a little by the doormen upon re-entry despite the fact that we had wristbands on indicating we were with a private party. But once we straightened it out we were readmitted, apologies accepted. The bathroom was probably my favorite part. I was bored much of the time and most likely won't go back.

Our friends decided to do our monthly happy hour at Prey since it has received rave reviews. We were completely mistaken. The service was terrible, half the items that we wanted to order on the menu were not available and if it was a "happy hour" item that we ordered, we could only eat it at the bar. The waitress screwed up the billing throughout the night and would not let some of party pay in cash when they wanted to. Overall, this place sucks. If it wasn't for the good company, I would have left immediately.
