With the exception of the New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball happening this Tuesday night, the Chandelier Room over at the W Hotel is closing down forever on Saturday, December 28th.

Chandelier Room closes in Hoboken NJ

Drug use, fights, complaints from neighbors dooms Chandelier Room

Word on the street is that this venue just couldn’t continue anymore for several reasons. One, it was considered a “top spot” for heavy drug use (cocaine usually), and the landscape was peppered with fights and unruly crowds often – with almost weekly police presence.

This, on top of a multitude of complaints from nearby neighbors caused the owners at EMM Group to close the doors on this troubled venue. Revenue was apparently down significantly since they opened because the “wow” factor and newness wore off entirely as the “trendy” people found other places to trash.

They’re apparently going to “re-think” this space whatever that means. Perhaps a calmer venue, or something entirely different.

Are you sad to see the Chandelier Room go?

“Chandelier Room” coming to Hoboken’s W Hotel?

Page Six in The NY Post had a one line blurb yesterday about Hoboken’s W Hotel – saying that the owners of the swanky Tenjune nightclub in NYC’s meatpacking district are opening up a new club called the “Chandelier Room.”

Now I’m personally never impressed with these highfalutin “rooms” where people stand around and look at each other pay exorbitant prices for liquor and snort all sorts of drugs. Certainly some folks become enamored by flashy people and semi-celebrities showing off – but I shrug my shoulders and move along.

When you’re suffering in bed the next morning with that god-awful hangover – will “last night” actually help make it easier? I didn’t think so.

This place was part of the whole Guido/Pseudo South Beach meets Seaside Heights mentality. Throw it in with the dumps on Newark Street (the former Clam Broth House) and you will see why Hoboken is losing it’s luster. As the kids who frequent Hoboken bars will tell you, the drug culture is apparently getting out of hand thus making many of the bars pretty sleazy places to be in. They will also tell you that the whole W scene is getting old and tired. The W should be catering to those who stay in the hotel and stop targeting the Snookie crowd.

OT but I wonder how the “Snookie crowd” finds the money needed to spend at places like this, buy Hummers (or the present day equivalent), etc.

I can’t imagine honest work being part of their culture.

Maybe I just answered my own question.

Rumors of coke use have been around for a while, not just at the W but in some of the bars around lowers Washington Street and the PATH area. My question is why hasn’t the local police dept. done anything to stop it and if they can’t handle it, have they referred the issue to the State Police? Some see these as victimless crimes, but when you see these creeps fighting on the street it becomes a local problem. Someone needs to stop this whole mess.[quote comment=”222269″]OT but I wonder how the “Snookie crowd” finds the money needed to spend at places like this, buy Hummers (or the present day equivalent), etc.I can’t imagine honest work being part of their culture.Maybe I just answered my own question.[/quote]

Because that would require actual police work.[quote comment=”222273″]Rumors of coke use have been around for a while, not just at the W but in some of the bars around lowers Washington Street and the PATH area.

Parking too. Those too poor or cheap to pay for valet or garage parking got booted, ticketed and towed, thus killing their customer base. Much like what the owners of Maxwell’s said. Can’t live the high life off the lint in your pockets.
