The Westway does suck, the place is strange. I kind of like the layout of the place, it is a former strip club. You can see by the stage that it appear to be that way. The events I have attended here were decent, I was pissed though security would not let me in this one time to see Maluca Mala, Dominican Princess. I was there to see her, and I got in after her set, even saw her leaving when I was still at the doorway trying to enter. I told security and whoever I was there to see her the opening act now the main person, still could not enter. I did eventually enter and got something to drink, I think Beck's but was not happy about the whole experience. I wish I did go a few years ago when Migos did a show here.youtu.be/iWAiw-sBRbg Other than that, I really don't care if the place still exists now or not. Tough door especially for Asians and Blacks on a free event night or a regular night.
***Review for Westgay***$5 cover and $10 a (mostly mixer) drink is steep for a Tuesday, but what else are you going to do on a Tuesday night? Picks up around 12:30, solid crowd, good mix of people. Worth a visit before it closes.
This place sucks
Complete dump. I went with my younger sister and a bunch of her friends. This place hasn't been cleaned since 1988. The prices they charge for drinks would make you believe that you are actually in a nice place. The staff were all generally nice with the exception of the nazi inspired bathroom attendant.
Lame and dingy. Bad music and acoustics. They make you wait a while but when u get in the place is half empty. Not exciting at all.
Made my first visit to this place tonight to see Hellogoodbye, who noticed immediately that it used to be a strip club. Naturally, they all stripped. And egged on crowd members successfully to do it too.Where do I even start with Westway?It is guarded better than Taylor Swift's apartment. The outside is freshly renovated and gives the illusion of class and grandeur. There isn't a doorman, there are four, and they are all dressed TO THE NINES. It's completely for show though. Once you get inside you'll let your guard down immediately by the relaxed feel of the staff, the raised catwalk in the middle of the dance floor (it's clearly not ritzy at all inside), and the plethora of seating options around the otherwise cozy and tiny music venue.The stage is propped up nearly as high an arena stage (maybe 4 ft. up) so it provides comfortable sightlines from the entire venue - a delicacy in a city where small bands sometimes don't even get a stage at all!The sound system is a force to be reckoned with. Even if the sound guy isn't a total pro, you can't expect him to be at a place that only gets a couple shows a month, with the equipment Westway has installed it sounds gorgeous anyway. Bar prices were completely fair for the neighborhood. SoHo can be very expensive so $7 beers wasn't bad at all. There's a box office and coat check inside.Strobe lights were bright and colorful, awesome for dance songs! The stripper poles, though a previous review noted they existed, were gone this time. Bummer.Westway is a venue in transition but I look forward to coming back. It is cozy, comfortable, fun, and eccentric and well on it's way to being the only live music venue in it's otherwise quiet neighborhood.
I was here on Tuesday for their Westgay night.I bought a round of drinks for my buddies to start off. The amount it came to shocked me so much that I didn't even think to tip. I didn't deliberately decide not to tip, it really just didn't cross my mind. When I ordered a vodka+water for the next round I handed the guy a $10 bill and expected to get something back, with which I could have tipped him. He keeps the whole $10 - which I let slide because I assumed the drink must surprisingly be $9.Later in the night one of the bartenders called me over and told me that because I hadn't tipped them all night, they wouldn't be serving me anymore. It was pretty mortifying. I've worked in the service industry and I can totally understand being mad at people who don't tip, but actually calling a customer over and calling them out on it is not professional, especially when the drinks are so outrageously priced for a place that looks like a badly-kept, dirty sex dungeon.On the plus side, the doorman was in good spirits and cracked a couple of jokes. The line to get in was swift. Most of the other staff were pretty polite, but the experience with the dance-floor bartenders due to overly expensive drinks put a huge dampener on my night.Also, getting the locks fixed on their bathroom doors might save their future customers some embarrassing situations.
so bad! do not bother! Its dirty and outdated and BAD service! door people have such attitude... hey westway: you can only have attitude when you have a good bar.and its expensive for tiny plastic cups. yuck
This place sucks. Even with a ticket for a show, and even with a reserved table, expect a huge wait to get in. The bouncers are rude and unhelpful . The worst place you can think of if planning a night out. As someone with a big expense account and a mandate to entertain clients, I'm going anywhere else. Never again
the popshop shows here are fun, but the location is a bit out of the way. the sound could also be better. bathrooms are pretty groddy, which is to expected. $7 for a can of bud light (limited beer options) and a $20 min on cards really sucks.
Its below freezing and although there were less than 10 people in front of us, it's been 30 minutes and they still haven't let us in. Really dislike venus that keep lines outside just for appearances
Does anyone know where any of these girls work now? Cherry? Wendy? Kayla? Stephanie?
I love this place. Tuesday night is the night to be at this club for the infamous WestGay party by Frankie Sharp. Great music and a mixed crowd of people. The DJs and performers are amazing and are alway a mix each week. Frankie really has made this the best party to be at on a Tuesday night. So follow through
Old Gentleman's club turned nightclub. Feelings? Hmm, well it is like the ghosts of the former dancers still haunt the halls of this place. It has the same grimey feeling of a strip club, the sound system is terrible, the drinks cost about as much, and the bouncers are just as douchey.Only difference is the lack of tits flopping around on stage. Instead you have a bunch of wasted dudes and chicks up there looking like idiots. Oh and there is a fog machine that spray out entirely too much smoke that add to the strangeness.We had a large group and were told we could only order from one bartender and if we didnt hit our limit the card would be charged $2K. Because over 50 people aren't going to hit a $2K limit when drinks run $12 a pop. Very unnecessary. And I cant believe how bad that music was. I must of heard "Lucky" four times by the same DJ, and he kept messing up songs as well. If the music was better, i think my feelings on the vibe would be entirely different btu I cant get over shitty tunes.
This place just flat out sucks. First of all it's located in the middle of nowhere. Secondly I went there for a friend of mines surprise birthday/video release party that we had reservations for, so we were expected. Our reservations were for 930 but we weren't let in until 10 because the bouncer said 'my shift starts at 10'. It only gets douchier. When we walked in I asked how much the beers were to which the asshole bartender scoffed and said $7. $7 for a bud light?! Oh well whatever. After mingling I just came over for a soda to which the bartender told me $3! I turned to my friend and said I gotta go at this point to which the bartender replies 'good. If you're leaving get the fuck out!'. EXCUSE ME?! I picked up my 3 dollars for the soda and said don't worry. This place is an over priced shit hole located to far away from anything to ever go back. I guess they want to quarantine these morons to themselves. Thanks for nothing westgay, just another douchey night club full of catty gays and RUDE staff!!!
Don't ever come to this place.The drinks? Horrific The crowd? Mutant-like, and probably on drugs. The bartender? Earned a tip that read "chill out" from a fellow patron. It was well-deserved.The fog? Yes, there's fog. Think of the person you know who can turn a small handbag into a bottomless, 100-lb container of junk. They found that person, on crack, and had them running the fog machine. He filled the room in a similar fashion. The location? You're going to regret the trek you made; this I know.
This place is packed, retro, slutty, dirtyAndItsAmazing
Strip joint into a club is genius!!!I came here with no intentions or expectations. There was no cover at the door and no line. I walked in and I was shocked, shocked to see the unexpected. Yea it's a bit smoky, grungy and gloomy but the vibe and lights make the place. We bought a drink at the bar and they serve Bud Light from a can, love it. The DJ was taking it back to R. Kelly and sick oldies. If you are looking for a place to dance with friends and listen to great tunes, Westway won't disappoint. I definitely will be back.
Overpriced drinks in plastic cups, awkward layouts, and a capricious door policy. It would have been better served to remain a seedy gentlemen's club.
This place is the pinnacle of Manhattan douchiness. So 90s Jay McInerny Bright Lights Big City but without the charm of the era. (I grew up in Manhattan.) I will not be going back. Exhaled when I got back to Brooklyn. A few people called it a hipster scene. This surprised me. It's really douche city. I'd add that the doorman, Jordan Bradfield, is a laughable parody of one. If only that were his intention, it might be interesting. Instead he's a poisonous cliche.
Those bloody bitches are the bomb...I luv them all... Vanna got dope, not coke!!!!!
Anyone know where "Storm" (Tiff) is workin now? She was a light skinned honey that worked in there during the day shift before she got squeezed out by Sensation and Precious. LOL. Let me know
does wendy or stephanie or cherry still work at this place?
What else was Rock supposed to say dude, he's a celebrity and he's got a family, if anyone knew how much he enjoys prostitution he would lose he's family and fans.
Since this is a recession their VIP special did help, but I can't imagine this place will be around much longer. Although being hustled for a VIP shouldn't happen because as Chris Rock used to say there is no sex in the champagne room anyways.
true, sensation was always massaging my balls under the table but others do that too so no loss really
Sensation is gone. She was the only thing worth coming to this rat-hole for. Now it's pointless. The dark skinned girl with the european accent tried to hustle me for a VIP yesterday, what a joke. I don't get hustled by strippers anymore sweetheart. Good luck with the other suckers. We are in a recession. This place is going to close.
men go to sues rendevous, or fucking players club.
I visited this club last night and I would consider myself a regular..they now have video camera in the lapdance area which has now ended what it had going for it. I don't like going to clubs where you get dances all out in the open and I used to enjoy going somewhere semi-private...I won't be visiting again and by the look of the amount of people in there I am not the only one that feels this way. Good luck the rest of the way.
The quality of dance could compete with any other place in the city and hold its own. I think they are doing a better job here than in the past...I would definitely suggest stopping by this place at night.
u get dollar and dollar and dollar.....u get smaller and smaller and smaller
Is Wendy and Vanessa still there?
Have been visiting this club lately....negative is that the same girls work everyday and there is not much on variety because of this. If they had more girls working there this place could be much better. The $40 per dance price is pretty steep though and has led to me skipping this place at times to go to other clubs in midtown....believe it or not it really does keep people away.
I had a long talk with the manager about this lap dance bull*** it turns out what you pay to the bartender or hostess it's a price for the ticket and even though girl who does the dance gets half of it she still asks for $20 tip for every song. I've been told I'm not obligated to pay her so much. A tip is a tip. When you go out to eat you don't hear a waitress telling you she'd bring you food if you tip her $50 up front. Peace out.
This club is fully nude, not just topless. (It can do this because it does not serve liquor.) I found the girls, ambience, and dances much too vulgar and down-market for my liking. It is a pity that New York does not have classy fully nude clubs, like The Cheetah in Atlanta.
I'm a cute dark skin dancer from up state.....super, super thick.....and I'm wondering if my shape and look will fit in to this club....can anyone etll me what the dancers are like here....the atmosphere? Holla at me please!
I went to this club and to be honest it wasn't that bad....my only beef is that they should change the price on the website that has dances costing $20 each....it is actually $40 per dance because like the previous customer I had to give $20 to the dancer to give to the hostess before each dance on top of the $20 for the dance itself. Don't mind it, just a little more honesty would be appreciatied.
Went here during the afternoon and even though the LD's were descent paying $40 in total for each one was excessive to the point where it cut down the amount of money the girl would have got because you had to give the bartender $20 for the space....they should consider a one time fee of $20 and let the girls keep the rest....this by the way will also keep guys around longer!
Everything is better than ever at cafe mystique. new management that brings in new girls weekly. girls are lovely and do their jobs very well giving some of the best dances in the city. this is the place i always go to knowing that i get the treatment i want, no problems, always open for good times
Place got busted Passion Wendy Vanessa and her sidekick Stephanie (who thinks shes black) all got busted for providing extra services ( blow jobs and free herpes) and selling coke Thank God this place is a hole in the wall with old and ulgy hookers Owners are selling place back to auto parts garage next door Visit Scores to see real dancers
Yeah, they want proper attire, I mean I wear jeans and I get in, but no sneakers and stuff like that. Shoes and nice shirt will do. I miss Beautiful, it's been so long! Ehhh....
I heard there is a dress code. If so what is it?
It's not crowded? It looked packed to me last night! Great party, sexy girls, no alcohol damn it, next time I'll get few drinks before. I had a very good time. Do you think I can come with my girl next time?...
I'm here twice a week, love the stage show. Stephanie is no.1, that unique look, perfect body and interesting opinions. There's variety of girls, always new dancers. I'm kinda attached to this club.
It's good... seductive girls.... it's not crowded so you get to choose the hottest one you want to give you a dance
Let me tell y'all something, this club keep my marriage together (VIP member since 2002) and it keeps me from slaping people on the face everytime I'm super stressed out or just pissed off.
All I can say is I'm in love with a stripper(s).
They're all NUDE get LD with Cherry she's beautiful and sexy that's the one with very long hair
I was there yesterday (it's West Side Cafe now), I saw the best show ever! I believe Amy was her name, that girl is incredible!!! Many beautiful girls...
Yo its been 3 yrs but a sweet tiny sexy shorty so young looking she teesed the juice out of me she didt evev take a thing off but man if you ever go there find out where this boobie somthing like that so cute had to do the vip aweek later , omg if you go too this club see her she can take you places its one of things you want to experience... sweet nipples just sweet candy .
Disregard the comment from Smiles2 in NJ below. There is NO money at that club. You will waste your time if you work there.
I used to go there and there was a good looking girl named Jessica. Anyone know if where she is now? She wasa light skinned latina with big boobs.
how much are the dances
Where are all the thick black girls in nyc? Can anyone tell me any cluvs to go to ?
F#@%K this club. ugly money hungry girls
OMG Sensation baby girl I am in love with you baby. Damn. Damn Storm, I heard you went out backwards. If you can't handle competition don't invite your fine ass girlfriends to come work with you. You ain't built for this business. I'd still hit it though.
Is where you should be.... The staff is friendly but most of the dancers are pretty ugly or have horrible attitudes. Also they do not serve alcohol, which inorder to find any of these girls remotly attractive you'll need copious ammounts of... You're much better off spending you're money on an escort (you can pay 'em for lap dances if that's what you want) or one of the other clubs in nyc- one with hot women that is!
Sensation is a SENSATION! And I love you Tiff. You are so sexy.
This club is the shittiest club ever..don't even bother. ugly girls and expensive lap dances.
is this place still as bad as it was when it was Carousel. Back then it was the worst ripoff trap in the world. So bad it would turn your stomach and make you ill. Back then it was not a stripclub, it was a house of prostitution by way of hard pressure at a big mark-up (and fee, and tip, and tip, and tip). I doubt it is any better now.
Please. He was there before when the dances were fucking crazy. He's probably getting blown there too. The new girls are giving hand-jobs during the dances just like before. It's a hooker house, always was.
does this mean the "rent a cop" is keeping a closer eye on things? recently the new mgmt has led to the dances being a lot tamer than in the past.
The big black rent a cop guy that is there at night sometimes...he's a cop. He's moonlighting.
transportation? tell me more....
Ladies new jersey's premier, upscale all nude and only byob gentlemen's club is now hiring, transportation available, flexable shift's, very clean and safe place to work, great staff and a very generous customer base. hott 22 $$ hott 22 $$ hott 22 $$ hott 22
Raven=fabi is great vip....tight body and great hj
I just started working at Mystique Cafe- the only nude club in NYC. Tips are great and the girls are cool to work with.
Diamond was fired for bring tooo ugly, so she is upset that her pimp Anthony is no longer at the club. It is much nicer since he is not there with his prostitues, its a real club NOW, people are happier.
Wendy ripped me off on coke she charged me for 1/2 gram and gave me 3 lines don't buy from her
They'll be happy enough that you show up. Don't worry about a dress code.
I've been thinking of dropping by since I'm in the City pretty often. What attire specifically is required in their dress code?
I'm comming 2 mannhatten this monday 4 2weeks n i want to know the best club 4 a sexy thick english 12 lady ( I'm black of course) to work in can any 1 help me out????
this place is the worst, don't ever ever go there, i don't know how to describe the people there, i would say, monsters!~
Anyone else had VIP with RAVEN. petite lightskin.....fiesty?
I love Michelle who works behind the bar in day shift. But I hate a black girl who worked last friday behind the bar too. She's not a nice person and not friendly.
Are there any girls at this club who or slender or toned and don't have obvious blubber? Also of these are there any who are white or asain? Any south americans?
vanessa is the white chick late 30's very thick no tits and ulgy she dominican and has blond hair and blue eyes shes there at nights her blow is sooooo stepped on she is a total ripoff
Who is Vanessa not the black with the tats.
Vannessa you need to find a new place to sell your ass and coke at
Since Anthony's gone this place will be closed very soon it's always been a black club and it will never change if you need blow don't buy it here the place is being watched they have already been busted twice in the last month good luck nick everybodys against you including the NYPD
We have a new boss and nice staff. Mystique will be much better
i had a few LDs with the girl in the club pics (on right) Great experience....forgot her name..think it was ravinous or somethin' was a dark place...could be more if they promoted more...good location...right of west side hwy.
20 at the door, 5 for a soda, min 2 sodas or water, it's a juice bar. No vip room. lap dance is 40= 20 to the girl 20 to the house. very dark. music suck. it can get expensive.
I have posted a few pictures of some of the girls, however, many of them do not wish to be put up on the net so unfortunately the only way to see our complete selection is to come into the club for yourself.
please upload more pics of the slection of females

this place is now known as Mystique. its an awesome club with mediocre to amazing looking women. the lapdances are quite expensive but they're worth every penny. Any one who considers going to this club MUST try the VIP treatment. You'll never regret it.

Hi, I'm 20 years old, 5'5" sexy and all natural. I have long dark blonde hair and what I consider to be a winning personality. I've been dancing nude in NJ for a year now and I want to give this club a try. Do you think I would fit in? Is this a fun place to be? Can I make some money to pay off my tuition? *kisses* Britt

Not bad just $$ cover at the door, must buy a soda= 20+5, the lap dance is 20 to the house and 20 to the girl. 6 girls .. 4 were ok
