Don’t Flatter Yourself

“One of the biggest things a guy can do to keep himself outside is to unleash a ‘Do you know who I am?’ My answer is always the same: ‘If I did, you wouldn't be where you are right now.’” 

- Fabrizio Brienza, Doorman, RdV (409 W. 13th St.)


Keep Your Plans to Hit Scores to Yourself (At Least Where the Doorman is Concerned)

“Before I pass judgment on a client, I speak with them and ask where they're coming from prior to GunBar. This way I can get a sense of what their taste is and what their intentions are for the night. A small conversation can tell a lot about a person's state and how they will act inside.”
