Evil Olive

This spot may have changed names more than any other venue in the 'hood, but it’s become an unlikely young hipster hangout thanks to long-standing weekend dance parties hosted by local jocks Zebo, Marco Morales, Johnny Walker, and the Porn and Chicken posse. It's making serious inroads on our weekdays as well thanks to the over-the-top exploits of Monday throwdown Porn and Chicken and Thursday's Let's Get Weird. No one really loved the Evil Olive space, but through sheer force of party will and audacity (and porn, and fried chicken) it's the joint.

Came here Saturday night for a friends birthday, what a mistake!! The bathrooms had drug residue all over them, the cover just to get into the place was outrageous and the mandatory coat check? Are you kidding me?! They made me take off my blazer! The bouncer inside told us we couldn't go into the back room because we were white... Seriously?! This place is a joke. Save yourself your time and money and go anywhere else. The city has way too many options to enter into this cesspool of a place.


I can only hope that the manager will see this post because every number I have called has either been disconnected or completely unhelpful. I tried to attend this place tonight and the bouncers took my ID saying "Oh another New York ID" then claiming it was fake. I called the police who gave me an hour and half wait time for them to come. I told the bouncers this and they said that they could not help and they scan the IDs at then end of the night. Once I told them to scan mine they simply refused. When I left I tried to get a hold of a manager I found one number on the Facebook to contact someone and they told me to contact 911 and they could not help me any further in letting me know how to receive my ID back. I am completely disrespected and appalled at this bar. Oh and I forgot to mention I showed the bouncers four other forms of ID.
