I've been here on 3 separate occasions, all of which I've had different experiences.
On my first visit, I had an amazing time for a friend's birthday! I had the opportunity to try the food and was pleasantly surprised. Let's not forget about the view..I mean this is Long Island City we're talking about, so to have such a pretty view of the city and the bridge from a highly industrialized part of Queens was a plus in my books.
My second visit was in March for another birthday party but due to the cold weather it was enclosed. I wasn't fond of the music as it seemed to have been a spanish night? They played solely spanish music but aside from that little tidbit we had a great time.
The third and most recent visit, I was here for a party where we ordered bottle service and hookah. We got a table right by the bridge and beautiful view which made it all the better.
For all 3 times that I've been here at Penthouse 808 one thing holds true-- the bouncers and staff are down to earth and respectful of their patrons. They're not rude or unpretentious and that's something you dont get often, especially when going into the city and having to deal with the Manhattan bouncers at night clubs... this was refreshing.
I truly and honestly hope that the bouncers and staff remain as friendly as they are.
Aside from the fact that it's a bee eye tee see H to get there in addition to minimal parking, the good vibes, food, drinks, view, staff are all reasons that I'll be back... you don't have to go through a bunch of a-holes just to have a good time and that is a huge PLUS!
