Spirikal’s bottom line:  Eurocircle’s swanky parties never disappoint. Last Tuesday’s meetup was a cool evening with drinks, good music and loads of people.

Review: You can never go wrong with one of these events. The Empire Hotel Rooftop is a great space with two bars and a dance floor. My mate Ian and I tottled over after meeting up for a bite and drink at Iroha Izakaya on 49th St. Although we had RSVPed for this event, it was open to all who said “Eurocircle” to the bouncers in the lobby. That’s what I really about Eurocircle, it’s hassle free and honest. No weird “Are you on the list” bullshit from the bouncers. You dress the part; you get in. Simple. Some events are ticketed, but the majority are not.

From European Latin American and Asian expats, models, big wigs, photographers, UN employees and more, we chatted with so many people from all different walks of life.  This is a great way to be social. I couldn’t complain either about the DJ. With loads of old school hiphop and new house mixes, what’s there not to like?

My only little gripe was that much of the outdoor balcony space was closed off, which was a shame because the view was limited. There was no official coatcheck either, but there was a small curtain in the corner, where I stashed my briefcase.  After 10ish, it was time to head home. With the sounds and sights still buzzing in my head as I rode the train home, it was a good party.
