We’ve been living in New York for over 15 years, and I can tell that New York’s clubs are not as great as Icon!!!!
We were staying in the hotel close to icon and asked our receptionist which club they’d recommend Gypsy or Icon. They told us Icon, but it’s almost impossible o get there.
So my husband and I went to try. There were no people in line outside of the club at all.
They told us that we need to get some deposit card in order to get inside, and that money on the card can be spent on drinks. No problem whatsoever, we were planning to have some drinks anyway.
So we got inside. There are 2 halls, each with different music: one is regular pop music, the other one is club house.
We stayed in the one with pop music. The music wasn’t bad, some songs were kind of old and I don’t think good enough to be played in the club. But everybody had different preferences.
The drinks were ok, a little bit overpriced, but everything in Moscow is expensive, but actually not more expensive than in NY.
What I didn’t like about drinks is that they were watered down, too little alcohol.
The only thing that threw me off big time is that they sell NITROUS Oxide balloons !!!!
I work in a dental office and many offices got rid of nitrous oxide ( aka Laughing gas) many years ago. It is drug, you can get overdose, and I know that pregnant women can’t even work in a dental office where they use that laughing gas, because of the side effects on fetus.
I read some reviews here about coat check . In all New York Clubs you have to pay for your coat being checked.
So that’s totally fine.
We felt really secure in the club, security guys everywhere.
Yes you’ll see girls who are trying to look glamorous, they look silly anyway.
That didn’t bother us at all.
We came there to have good time, and we had great time!!!
Way to go, Icon
