Eldridge Guest List Via Facebook

Did you not get past the velvet ropes of the Eldridge to hang out with NBA announcer Kenny Smith and drink $26 cocktails with real gold flakes? That's too bad. But we've got news for you. You can just put yourself on the guest list via facebook. A LB tells us, "i just got this facebook msg from scott, naeems bf "hey guys! if you want to come tonight please add yourself to the guestlist on FACEBOOK.  The Eldridge people do not know who you are and if you don't let me know, you will not be on the guestlist.  thank you." Be advised - write your name in a short, choppy sentence so that you can make the guest list. If its not written in that format, the door people won't understand what you wrote, and you will not get in to mingle with celebrities like Kenny Smith, Camryn Mannheim and MTV’s Suchin Pak. What an action packed lineup! We wonder if any of them hooked up! Also, in case you are wondering Scott and Naeem love it there, saying "The space is really beautiful and intimate.  The cocktails are outrageously decadent and we plan on spending future evenings sampling the entire drinks menu." That's reason enough for us to stay away, but it may be just enough reason for us to move as well.

i love how you crib from the article yet leave out how horrifically wrong you were about matt and naeem. you are such a douche. and camryn manheim won an emmy, kenny smith played basketball professionally, suchin pakh is on one of the biggest networks in the world. what do you actually do but criticize other people's accomplishments?

Looks like "Kate Moss, John Legend, Lydia Hearst, Jay Z, David Beckham, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mariah Carey" and every other celeb namedropped in reference to this place couldn't make it to opening night?

"camryn manheim won an emmy, kenny smith played basketball professionally, suchin pakh is on one of the biggest networks in the world."

If that sentence could be bottled and sold, I'd pay $26 for it as long as it came with gold flakes.

I live on the same street and some trashy blond was working the door during the hurricane storms on saturday. i overheard her say to an unsuspecting patron: "no one can just walk in here. you have to be invited." you would have doubled over laughing too if you could have seen the person who said it. she was illuminated by green 80's laser rays pumping through the 'librarly' door like a run down skating rink. btw. there were honestly 3 people inside.

I'm sorry. Who gives a flying fuck about this trash hole? Wake me up when you've cured cancer or something. Then you're an important person. Getting into a bar just makes you a consumer.

your site is inaccurate and you cover events your not really attending which i find strange. the eldridge is claiming to big this big celeb hang out and you can't even get a celebrity there during fashion week.

I am an acquaintance of Matt Levine's and Matt is, and always will be, a GIANT DOUCHE BAG! I even say this to his face. The Eldridge can't even begin to compare to the likes of Bungalow, Socialista, Beatrice or Rose Bar. Their doorman in his cheap too small suit is a giant goofball and their cocktail waitresses in those tacky little costumes are even more goofy and ridiculous. The Eldridge is a place where New Yorkers will go once just because of the buzz and most will never have a reason to go back. I went by the other night to pay my respects to the corpse which will soon be the decomposed body of The Eldridge.
