I’ve been to industry numerous times and went last night on Sat, Feb 25th. The bouncers were extremely rude and accused me of having a fake ID because it wouldn’t scan. I’ve never had an issue getting into Industry, Hush, or any bars in the area. When I politely asked if there was some kind of mistake he then got extremely aggressive and started screaming at me to “GTFO”. I was then asked to leave.Afterwards my friends came out when they realized I couldn’t get it. They again politely tried to ask the bouncer what the issue was, and he started screaming at them to “mind their business (in a very profane way)”.When we started walking away the bouncer then followed us and continued to scream, causing a massive scene (everyone in the area was staring at him) while the line continued to build up. He spent 10 minutes arguing with us before we finally just walked away. We just walked an explanation.This bouncer was the rudest and most aggressive person I’ve dealt with in the last decade. I have no idea how he even got the gig. He was embarrassing the establishment with the way he was acting. Will never go back. And judging on the most recent reviews here, it seems this bouncer is causing a lot of issues.

The bouncer said incredibly misogynistic and racist things to my friend I came with (afro-latina woman.) Things about her being my "property" and "a man is a man when he claims property." Worse, when we complained and it, a man claiming to be the owners son as well as a manager claimed their bouncers would never say something like that and told her to calm down. They didn't believe her or us and acted extremely racist, not taking account for their bouncer's actions.

the security were some of the rudest people i’ve ever met. kicked my boyfriend and i out because he was standing on platform that he didn’t know was a speaker. they forcefully dragged him out as he was apologizing and explaining that he didn’t know that he did anything wrong. the bouncers didn’t budge or show any signs of humanity or forgiveness. like girl it’s not like he was messy or hurting anyone. never going back. the music and vibes sucked anyway so it’s okay 🙂

This review is for 12/16. The DJ was really bad with the song selections and their transition. I don't think I and the crowd felt seen last night.

Ok here is the deal - I believe in Industry and I’m always optimistic to have a good experience. In fact I’m still giving them a 5 star as I want them to succeed. I’m a native of NYC for over 20 years but I don’t live in Hell’s Kitchen. Industry has a great space. One of the best in Hell’s Kitchen.So I arrive tonight on a Tuesday mind you, they check my ID, fine…I’m mid40s queen…they ask to check my backpack… guns, just my overnight backpack as I’m attending Holiday parts In the city and have a hotel reservation (I’m live upstate now- yay me). They see a water bottle in my bag and make me dump it out. This is a Tuesday night. There are 5 people in the bar…total. I’m thinking they are searching me for a gun…fine. But my water bottle. It’s a backpack. I’m here to buy drinks. You are not loosing money. So I made the bar tender refill it as soon as I walked in with water. I may need a sip in the middle of the night and not drinking hotel water.I order a drink and the bar tender immediately presents me with a mobile credit card machine. I said “no it’s ok I want to keep it open for a few drinks and then I will pay” he said no you have to pay each time.So this is where we are in society. Can’t I just go to a bar and sit at the bar and have a few drinks(at an empty bar) and just relax. In understand these are minor infractions, but we just want to go places and feel at home. These little things add up in our hectic days. can be major if you want to be.

Ugh. Packed, packed, and more packed. Industry has some fun drag shows throughout the week (LOVE Sister Sister on Tuesdays with Egypt and Yasmin Delano!) but this place gets so packed with younger straight people on the weekends that I just want to leave. Shoutout to Matthew at the bar, he's awesome!

Went here on a weekend night with my trans friend and we both felt safe and loved the atmosphere. We also loved the drag show they had (Chelsea Piers!). The crowd that night was also wild and fun.Unfortunately, the bartender serving me (didn’t get their name) didn’t know how to do a Black Russian and just gave me like an 8-12 oz cup of Kahlua topped off with some vodka after asking me to explain it… I get that working the counter all night can be rough, but it’s a well known simple drink and shouldn’t have been that bad. It was probably one of the toughest to stomach cocktails I’ve had before. I was charged nearly $15 for it! And I sadly also was pressured into giving a small tip for it by the bartender. After that I decided to not get any more drinks so it kinda let things down for me. Be careful, this place can be pricey! But the experience overall was still good.

Bartenders here are just a joke. The short guy with no shirt on will cry like a little girl because you won’t leave the tip on the credit card and when he made the drink and I didn’t tip he didn’t give me a chance to take the drink he just throw it away and was being SUPER RUDE ..No one told them that people will tip if you do a good job not if you will be rude, disrespectful dude who can’t do nothing better as just pouring the drinks. Don’t go there, matter of fact do let that short guy serve you drinks!! Very disrespectful!! And then I asked for a refund and the other tall guy said I should ask whoever serve me lol what a joke will never go back!

Visited here on a Friday night, got there a bit early I would say, but it picked up shortly after. It was difficult enough to spot because there was some scaffolding outside, and they keep a low profile to not disturb neighbors, but it is worth finding!Good bar staff, a good mix of music, plenty of space to dance, watch others dance, and even some more relaxed areas if that's what you need at the end of your week!

The bar and the atmosphere are very nice but the dj is horrible! He doesn’t play any song that we ask for and he also doesn’t play any gay song. It looks like I am in a straight bar, which is a shame. I think you should hire a new one.

Don't go to this bar. I've been in NYC for 4 years. Stonewall, Uncle Charlie's or Metropolitan in Brooklyn - these bars are so much more genuine and have appreciation for all and fun beyond LGBT and for all people. Go to these ones.Avoid redheads at this bar if you go at all costs - extremely negative and degrading to all for no reason at all. I've been in here a couple times honestly; they are so mean and it's not even worth it.

Wow after so Manny years this bar still pumping. Bartenders were great, Marcus, music also was good. Sing your heart out. Coat check still same type of issue but I guess has to be a seasonal thing. Maybe industry needs a face-lift? Specially on stage, dance floor and better access to bathroom.

Some of the new bartenders are demanding tips by literally taking back drinks they just poured of you don’t tip them. I always tip the bartenders, but there was one I didn’t feel like doing it. If the management thinks it’s a right behavior please post a note that tipping is mandatory and customers will not be serviced otherwise. Must look into a legal side of that.

Amazing place, love that you need to be fully vaccinated to get in! Bouncers deserve another 5 stars 🌟 my favorite place in town. Drinks on point and everyone was dancing until morning.

I am not fully vaxxed and neither is my gf, bouncer denied us entry even though we were just there last weekend without any problems. We showed him our vax cards, IDs, and he explained that we needed two vaccines and told us it said it on their door. Nowhere on that door did it say anything about having two vaccines in order to enter. Honestly, we felt like he wouldn’t let us in cause we’re women. Again, nowhere on the door or even on their website does it say we need to be fully vaccinated. We let him know we were just there last weekend and all he said was “well now I’M here and I’M telling you you can’t come in without two doses. It says it right there” and pointed at the sign on the door which said no such thing. Felt extremely discriminated against.

The bouncers and bartenders need to do a better job of creating a safe environment here. I should be able to go to a bar with friends without having six men touch personal areas without consent. Twice this was in line for the bathroom, so I was unable to walk away after communicating that I was not comfortable with the interaction.

I’ve seen so many bad reviews of this club here and I’ve honestly never witnessed any of this, open-toe heels and ID issues aside, Industry is my favorite gay bar in NYC, I can’t visit NYC without visiting Industry for at least one night, is one of the few bars I’ve visited were people do nothing less than enjoy themselves and dance the night away. The Dj(s) are(is) so good, the drinks and bartenders are great, come on.

This club is very RACIAL. My friend and I was entering the club, she had on an open toe platform shoe and they refused her entry. I am pretty sure it's because we're all BROWN. Someone else of different color decent entered right after us with open toe sandals and they got in. This was very unfair. The double standards was unreal.

Went last night for the first time; immediately you’re met with Jessie, the doorman, who was extremely friendly. The inside is fairly spacious, decor is decent, bathrooms are clean, entertainment is good specifically the drag shows. All the staff in general are great workers. My only complaints would be that there wasn’t any food for purchase, at the time at least, other than the hotdog you’re served ($5) due to NY law needing alcohol to be served with food. And lastly the drink selection wasn’t as diverse in terms of beers. Hoping they add ales/ciders. However mixed drinks were really good! If you get the margarita you might want to let it dilute for a second. The cosmopolitan was very smooth, highly recommend. Oh & there’s a two drink minimum, but I mean.. if you’re going to a bar to buy just one drink, well idk maybe you’re just at the wrong place?

The attention it’s actually good.But management or owner it’s very very rude and unprofessional since I didn’t got any warning about how many times I can stand up with my masc on.I was celebrating my best friend’s marry and we were all kick out for being standing with not even 1 warning.We all felt discriminated.Also feel sad that It won’t be the place that i will take any of my friend around the world.

The bouncer is rude and arrogant. Management should reconsider who they hire because he is costing them a pretty penny according to my experience and others who have left reviews. Unfortunately I will not be returning.
