One thing that was very obvious was the fact that they had a very strict door policy, which was look good, or don't come in. Which I did witness while waiting on line, and then spotted those who were denied entry, ventured across the street to Pacha. To avoid the hassle, make a reservation via email.
With that said, if you missed your helicopter to South Hampton for this Labor day weekend, Hudson Terrace really helped fill the void. With comfortable cabanas lining the windows atop a light wood deck, it really did (somehow), radiate a beach party feeling. This is the type of place you'd see Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly make up.
I came here for my brother in-law's birthday party. From being told at the door that the deal made with the promoter wouldn't be enough to cover our guests, the night didn't start the way many would have hoped. Despite that, Hudson Terrace still lived up to it's reputation for a GREAT night. Turning from an incredible view of the sunset over the Intrepid and the Hudson river, to a beach themed party like no other.
The guy to girl ratio here is just right at 2:1, mixed in with the white leather couches and pink drinks at about $17 a piece. My friends and family had two tables in the back corner of the cabanas. This space was ideal, with a view of the entire club, from the bar, dance floor, elevators, and for some historical value the Intrepid. It doesn't stop there, the DJ was just a few strides away for a simple request, which he fulfilled several times. By the end of the night, other party people climbed atop the wooden cabanas all became friends!
Although the venue has changed over the years, with the addition of a necessary retractable roof, fog machines and strobe lights, Hudson Terrace is a 'go to' for a good time.
