I attended my friend's birthday party here last week. Great time had by all. Easy access for 25 plus people. We arranged to have the cover/ticket fee waived previously. Of course we more than made up for it in alcohol consumption. The music was amazing that night (sat.) - for all the people who like to dance. I do and did it for 4 hours straight. No attitude crowd. Not the glamour crowd but certainly a good vibe and decent looking crowd aside from a a few "uglies" here and there. Bartenders are fast and friendly. I've been to Marquee next door on several occasions and nothing bad to say about that place either. Glass is less "pretentious" for those of you who are sensitive and less expensive but can be just as fun if your with your own group. I wouldn't necessarily go there to meet someone. It's a fun place to chill with friends but if your looking for love...look elsewhere. Bouncers are courteous in comparision to most other NYC hotspots. Also one last note for the guy who complained about paying for the drink ticket...at least you get something for your money...other places charge more and you get zip. Oh the one bad thing is the number of bathrooms. When the place gets crowded you may get stuck in a bit of a line but it's not a deal breaker for me. I say go and enjoy!

Pros: great little lounge for dancing and drinking

Cons: bathrooms

to summarize; all the D-bags and euro-trash wannabies who get rejected from Marqui next door, spend their evenings next door at glass. The convinient location allows the shame of not being able to gain access into Marqui, to be quickly dispersed... Apparently, the stage dancing girls who come out after midnight were declined employment at Marqui as well.
It's kind of like the creme-de-la-Hoboken meets Miami-chic ...

One of the worst places I have ever been to. The door man was the nastiest guy i have ever encountered! he thinks he's the hottest bouncer when he desperately needs to buy a pair of shoes & iron his suit. How classy is it to drink a Bud Light behind a glass door when everyone can you? If it weren't for my friend's that were already in there, I would of never waited in line. The crowd was't good at all either! Not recommended at all!

I went to Glass for a friend?s birthday party last Saturday night. It was a really good experience!
I got there at 10PM. There was no line, so I was let in right away.

Reading some of the negative reviews, I?m surprised. The place actually seemed the opposite of what some people have said. The doorman was very, very nice. I?m an African Amercian woman. And I didn?t receive any discriminatory treatment. He checked my ID and let me in. He even chatted with me a bit later on. He seemed like a nice fellow.

The 3 bartenders were busy but friendly. I ordered the birthday girl a martini. And she said the drink was strong.

Some of the crowd did seem a bit aloof, but I didn?t mind because I was there to see my friends. I should be fair, though, and say two or three of the patrons did smile at us.

Overall, I highly recommend Glass. The atmosphere was a bit upscale but also relaxed.
The only real con is the lack of a proper dance floor. I would definitely go again.

This place is ok, I guess. I went here after a horrific experience at the nightmare next door called Marquee. There was no problem getting in, as the bouncers were relatively friendly, but NY standards anyway. You have to pay this cheesy $10 cover at the door and then you get this little drink coupon. So, in essence you're forced to buy a $10 drink to come in this place. I guess that's average prices for a bar, but...what if I just wanted a Diet Coke? Secondly, the crowd here is just WEIRD. Plus it's really small. And the second I was done with my drink, about five waitresses asked me if I needed another. Listen girls, there's no one at the bar, which is about 2 feet away from me - if I need another drink, I will go get one. Stop harassing the customers!

I had my birthday at Glass last weekend and had an amazing time! It was so easy to make a reservation and everyone in my group got in with no problem. The doorman is the nicest I've ever encountered. On the downside, the bathroom line was long and they didn't have a coatcheck (they said it would start next week). DJ was incredible and kept the place pumping all night! Overall, a great experience. I'm definitely recommending Glass to my friends!

I normally don't like the area BUT had to go because it was my friends birthday. I was on the guest list and they let me right in. At first the place wasn't that crowed (meaning easy to get drinks) BUT once there was a decent crowd it was nearly impossible to get drinks at the bar. Luckily you can order a drink from one of their "cocktail girls." Overall, the DJ was real good, the drinks were weak, and the bathroom was trippy..

Came with friends after calling to find out what time they open. They said 10pm and gave a run down of music they would play (hip hop and 80's on Wed night). Got there at 10:30pm. Doors were LOCKED. Waited till 11pm (maybe they made a mistake?). At 11, gates were pulled down over the whole lounge front. Yes, GATES. Very odd. Dreaded going to club in that area (pretentious, snoootie, yes what you've heard about next door neighbor is all true). Spoke to bouncer at Marquee and he seemed nice. Music for the night at Marquee would be rock upstairs and hip hop downstairs (again, wed night). So got in line. and waited. This is what people speak of when talking about feeling discriminated by race or class or just plain overlooked and invisible when going to clubs that think highly of themselves. I'm hispanic and she's black. I wore skinny jeans and a halter with an armani blazer (she's a skinny minnie, I'm a curves in good places girl 5 foot 7 in heels and about 135 lbs). We both work in finance, I'm 26 yrs old and have long curls. To boot, they let a couple behind in, and they were in the age range of 39 - 42. Man wore a business suit (lower level finance, not crisp mgmt suit) and woman wore a dress. Decided the people inside must be going through menopause anyway and we would be better off finding another spot. Overheard woman at door ask bouncer in reference to guys who were also trying to get in "should I tell them they should dress better or what?". She wasn't even kidding. Don't give them the satisfaction of being friendly till you step up to the door where they reject you. Anywhere other than a club it would be illegal to profile. :)

Pros: Supposedly un pretentious

Cons: They were closed lol

I've been going to Glass regularly since they opened six years ago. Let me lay to rest some of the negative reviews on this site. First, Glass is NOT a gay bar. They welcome everyone, which may explain why one guest walked in and saw a bunch of gay guys one night. They would never say no to a group because of sexual orientation. Second, Glass is like a family. The owner stands at the door, welcoming guests and making sure that their experience is pleasant--unlike most other doormen in the City. The staff are friendly and the drinks are reasonable. They use real liquor in their well drinks, not the $5-a-bottle junk you'll pay 15 bucks for in another club. Lastly, the design is amazing and they have a garden in the back where smokers can chill all night. Give Glass a try, you won't regret it!

bouncer was great not rude at all...cover fee was great! if you are just looking for a small cozy place to just dance and enjoy great music....highly recommended

The first time I ventured to the wonder that is Glass, my girls and I had been partying at Marquee until it turned into a zoo when Paris & Nicky Hilton arrived and sat in VIP (speaking of which, isn't the point of VIP to be tucked into a conspicuous, closed off area in which the "unworthy" will not be allowed pass?). We promptly left and randomly walked into Glass and the rest is history. I don't even go to Marquee anymore b/c of the masses of silly, pretentious people. I can no longer count the amount of times that I have been to Glass and each time I have gone, I kid you not, I have had some ridiculous night of debauchery not only w/ my friends, but w/ random people I have met there. If you're looking for a place w/ yummy cocktails, friendly staff, good looking people (i.e. men, although the ladies represent as well), and tunes that make everyone get out of their seats and gyrate on the dancefloor... well then, this is your place!

Cons: When it's packed, it's PACKED

Went here for a birthday. The $10 cover was OK, bc they gave a drink ticket. However the drinks were EXTREMELY watered down. Good music, no guys. Single girls dont waste your time.

Trendy....but it's $10 to get in with a free drink (which by the way is watered down) AND it's a gay bar...I wish they would of told us that before we went in...Ladies...if you want a man, don't go...

My sis-in-law & a close friend decided to check out Glass last night after hoping from a few other spots last night in celebration of her b-day. So after coming from a lounge right around the corner from Glass we got on their line to pay our admission to get in. At first glance I realized the 3 of us stuck out considerably in the line as most of the potential party-goers were either not from NY or of a Paris Hilton type. Us being more of an ethnic mix & straight from the island of Manhattan. Now that's a non-issue b/c we don't mind partying w/ anyone so long as everyone has fun. Unfortunately for us, it did seem to matter to the main doorman.

Long story short we wait for about 10 mins b/f we're at the front of the line. While there I witnessed the interaction b/t 2 different parties looking to get into the club- which was the catalyst for why I write this review. The first group were 3 Caucasian guys from Canada- I know this because the main doorman asked these guys their life story b/f letting them in. He told them they would have to pay $10 & would get some free drinks inside. At no point did he ask them what guest list they were on. The next person on the line was an Asian woman. The asst doorman asks her if she is on a guestlist- she says no. They let her in. Then to our little 3-man group- now all of us are over 21 yrs of age w/ valid IDs, & all 3 of us were dressed. The main doorman (Fernando) goes on to look my male friend up/down (the lone black face in the whole crowd) & proceeds to tell us it's strictly guest list. This is after he just let in 4 ppl who were on NO guest list, but who were obviously of a "higher element" that we must have been perceived as. I could have stayed & argued what he was doing was border-line illegal, but we decided to go to another hot-spot nearby & had fun anyhow. But I'll make sure to turn everyone I know off from going to Glass.

I've loved this place since it opened. The door staff is friendly, the crowd is gorgeous, and the peach martinis are AWESOME! The wait staff and bartenders are really sweet (love the shirts they wear, wish they'd sell them), and we all had a GREAT time here. And I still get a kick out of the two way mirror in the rest room :)

Found this little hotspot after going through a Hell of a nightmare with the over rated "BED" (DON'T go there). $10 cover that includes a drink ticket, reasonably priced drinks and pretzels on the bar - a place to sit for everyone, great decor, outdoor smoking section is fun as well.

My friends recently planned a birthday party for me here...needless to say, it was a success, thanks to the friendly staff and awesome atmosphere. Setting up the event was a breeze, thanks to the friendly and efficient coordinator at this venue. Also, it has distinct and great tasting drinks. Atmosphere was nice too...not to big that you can't find all your friends, not too small that you are all crammed in...and cool interior decoration as well.

$10 at the door, but you receive a free drink ticket (which basically buys you your first drink...which can be more than $10)

I still cant understand the concept of tipping. If bartenders work mainly on tips why do some bartenders tend to act snotty. I didnt get a thank you or smile untill me and my girlfriend finally gave our third tip.

I have been a loyal patron of Glass since its inception! Every year I have my birthday party there. Everyone and I mean everyone on the staff is cream of the crop. I never want to have a birthday anywhere else. The people are different and not the cookie cutter New Yorker you usually meet everywhere else in Manhattan. The outdoor garden just makes this fabulous experience perfect!!! I wish I was allowed to say more but I am only allowed 150 words!!!!

This is a fun chill place to hang with your friends. Drinks are good and the service is better. The only problem is that it is hit or miss with the crowd. One night you have a crowded place with fun and attractive individuals, the next it is empty. Still a great place to go.

The wait staff treated my self and guest as if we were the king and queen of our own tropical oasis. Definitly try the raspberry mojito!! Admitedly i was aprehensive at first to carry around a glass filled with purple hue, but I just had to try it. My guest decided to have me as the mojito guinea pig but after she tasted the autumn sunset colored beverage amazement and jealousy came over her as she looked at her own drink wishing and hoping and praying it was my most delicious berry stricken mojito.

Doesn't have any food which is a no no for me. After that long walk to 10th avenue one needs a bite to eat. No happy hour specials or anything like that, also a negative. Decor is nice but they made a mistake with those coffee tables. Their overall product is not worth the trip to 10th avenue and that desolate location.

Decor is nice but they made a mistake with those coffee tables. Their overall product is not worth the trip to 10th avenue and that desolate location.

Pros: Decor

Cons: Food

.

The decor first attracted us. We went on a fri night and in order to get in you have to pay $10 for a "ticket" which will get you 1 free drink...yep 1 drink...we asked why we needed to buy a ticket to drink when we were going to do that in the first place. Answer: management policy. Best thing of all the place was nearly empty! Sorry it's not worth the $10...

Pros: Decor I guess

Cons: fake cover charge, what crowd?

.

Only one bartender working and a snotty one as well... too long of a wait to the bathroom and people started cutting the line.. everything is just wrong.... and the fact that they charge COVER? shame on them!!

I'm a semi-regular at Glass and love it. The manager is a great fellow who makes his bar very welcoming and expresses interest to know if you are having a good time. This what one will like: 1) Music - some of the best house/hip hop in the city with new and old beats. If you like European House this is the place. 2) Crowd - can be a hit or miss but in general people here are looking to chill out. 3) Service - all fast at the bar. Helpful people 4) Atmosphere - during summer time the back part of the bar is open so you get an outdoor and indoor areas to hang out. 5) Meetup spot - since the night only starts after midnight in the city, its a good place to get all your friends together before heading out somewhere.

THE WORST BAR/LOUNGE in NYC hands down... thats enough to know but read on if you want to.

i'm there for a party, we are meeting 4 girls who already have a table with bottle service. me and one other guy show up and have to wait outside for an hour before they let us in " because there weren't enough women" in the bar.

this place was as bad as i have ever seen. the place was empty by 12 on a thursday, probably because they don't let anyone in so no one will ever come back.

Pros: none, none, none

Cons: , bouncer, no people there

I have never been to a more rude or hypocritical bar/club than this place. Literally minutes after they refused to let my bf in on account of his sneakers, even though he was wearing a nice polo shirt and khakis, they let another guy in who was wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. I can respect that bars and clubs have their own dress codes, but Glass' selective enforcement of their dress policy is offensive and unacceptable!

The nice decor does not make up for the rude and pretentious staff. The drinks are watered down and the walk to the edge of the West Side definitely didn't make this place worth the trip. The glass bathrooms are a "feature" but there are other better places with the same thing. I'm not going to be going back.

Glass is a nice place. I like it cause it's out of the way, not filled with pretentious jerks like some lounges. and the best part is the tunes. house music baby. thats what i'm talkin about. keep it up.

Literally. The staff was attentive, but who could blame them? the place was practically desolate on a Friday night. the atmosphere was unique, i'll give them that.. blue lighting and big open windows, but they had a smoke machine blowing so hard behind us that i couldnt even see my drink in front of me! The scene was also young and not so cool.. the majority looked like they just started to grow facial hair.

I needed an emergency palce to hold a birthday party for a friend after first place was overcrowded. Called them, told them my deal, and they hooked us up all night long. Table was nice, waiter service was prompt, and the Manager asked us how we were doing all night...I would highly recommend it. Also, there was a good crowd there, the lounge was definitely nice, but without the pretentiousness (sp?)

Was totally surprised to feel a super friendly vibe as I walked in. Enjoyed rasberry mojitos in a spaceship looking environment where the people don't think it's uncool to smile at strangers (without wanting to hook up). DJ Melvin was rediculous on the tables- he even inspired some "break dance fighting"- overall good time had by all

Glass located way west is a relatively small space with a very modern looking interior. Glass has a one drink minimum which one pays for at the door. This is not terrible, considering other night spots charge a cover. The long glass bar is easily accessible, yet drinks are overpriced for this wannabe trendy spot. There is an outdoor alcove in the rear of Glass, which is clearly just set up for smokers. A long white bench with tables and fake leather stools line the wall across from the bar, allowing for those drinking their one-drink-minumums to relax a little in the over air-conditioned space. One plus is the area outside the bathrooms where a large sink area exists in front of a tinted window looking out onto the street. Strike up a conversation with a fellow patron washing their hands or gaze out into the nothingness of 10th avenue.

Went to Glass Saturday night, wasn't bothered by the one drink minimum, but be warned, the place is small and gets pretty crowded. The service was good, the drinks were a little expensive, the atmosphere was dark, the crowd was sloppy drunk, and the music was the worst part! Nothing about this bar really stands out that you couldn't find somewhere else. Skip it.

Terrific space for a party! Staff is tops and fun. No nasty bartender attitude. Great looking bunch, too. Had my birthday bash with about 40+ friends even while another large party came in. Didn't faze this group. We all just joined in with each other. Everyone had a great time. Food was tasty and the drink service, good and fast. Great place to hang as the crowd gets more interesting as the night moves on.

It was "un-fabulous" without the mellow sounds of DJ Efabulous. Besides that the place is "just okay".

Awful, wanna-be slickster crowd that all look around for someone cooler than the person they're trying to talk to. Service stressed out and not very pleasant. Ugly outfits on waitresses and VERY artificial tasting, watered-down drinks. Drinks are better at ANY rowdy Village dump! Don't open up a place juts so you can have parties for so-called celebs; won't work, doesn't work!

notice a trend...staff is downright rude! They have something to prove, like - they don't want customers to come back. Bouncers overcompensate for their loser lifestyles by keeping people out when no one is in. refused to let my friend in with a cell and treat you like you are a piece of -. my girlfriends and I stepped outside to look at the "glass" bathrooms, they kept us waiting again (there was no line)! Drinks overpriced, watered down and place is a bore. Inside staff pushes people around and I actually watched one guy dragged from his seat and thrown out (it looked like they were pissed bc he was talking on his cell...hmmm wonder if there is a theme here). Bottom line, if you want fun - dont go - but, if you like to be harassed by 10$ an hour wannabe's then this is your place.

I went only on week days, this plase was not crowded enough but people there were OK. Unfortunately the place closed early (which means I could have stayed there until 4). Enjoyed the outdoor space and the music is usually far better than the average. Nothing special about the staff. My overall impression is good and that's definitely an option for these mid-weeks nights.

GLASS is not worth mentioning...let alone even bother making any reservation there. The schmuck who answered the phone has uncouth attitude...is it really worth coming here? I don't think so. Very unaccommodating, no proper phone etiquette...I give it 2 thumbs down!!

After leaving Bungalo 8 on a Saturday night, due the "want to be hot pathetic scene" a girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by a nice, charming bouncer at the door of this very interesting place. Glass has a welcoming feel with a very chic look. Everything from their see-through bathrooms to their garden in the back were quite intriguing. Music was great, place was hot, and the crowd was nice. Never thought I would ever like stumbling into Glass ....

Hiked over from midtown after work to meet friends for a drink on a Wednes. night and was disappointed by the simple, boring aesthetic. Bathroom sink was the coolest thing about this place. Bar started getting busy around 10pm. Appetizers (only food offered here) were just ok and the rasberry mojitos weren't too powerful for their standard $10 price. Staff seemed pretty bored there too. And with so many great places in this area, I don't think I'll be back.
