    Even if you don't like rap, come here for freestyle Mondays. Especially the first Monday of the month when the best MCs in the city battle it out. It's such a fun experience!!

    Surprisingly great happy hour with a great cocktail list. Try the Rum Fashioned made with Goslings, tawny port and bitters. Nice bracing, winter cocktail with just a touch of pirate.

    This mellow East Village bar has a number of unusual, but very tasty house cocktails. Cocktails are half price from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

    If your first check in is after 11pm they won't give you the half off discount. Stupid, stupid rule. Go for the handsome bartender named angel! Good looking and super nice!!

    An awesome lounge with the theme of Hollywood in the 20s and 30s with classic cocktails. There are live jazz performances in the intimate piano area of the lounge.

    “If your group gets hungry, ask the bartender about ordering from Yerba Buena, a Latin American restaurant down the street that will deliver to the bar.” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/ella.

    Go early for great live music (check the calendar) in a Gatsby-esque locale. Later on with DJ, crowd was very young and fratty. Great drinks and decor.

    Chill LES lounge. Good mix of music. Watermelon martinis truly are amazing. But be careful, those things are DEADLY. All the bartenders are amazing and hilarious.

    Typical "no dudes" / "we have a dress code" bullshit from the guys out front. Won't be coming back; there are plenty of places I can go to with less hassle. Shame because it's actually a nice space.

    Bartenders Dan and Miguel were fast, friendly and efficient. The four piece jazz assemble playing Sammy Miller were awesome. This place will be insane packed soon. Glad to me here before the masses.

    I don’t like my cocktails sweet so I asked for my Dandy Wellington without sugar and loved how refreshingly light it was. I seem to gravitate towards anything made with gin and mint. Read more

    Stupidest rule I have ever heard in the history of any bar/club ever. Watched a band...tried to use the only bathroom located upstairs and was told I would not be able to go back downstairs.

    Downstairs is where the party's at on the weekends. If you want to avoid it being crazy packed, 2am is generally the sweet spot.

    $7 for a Heineken + a "DJ" poorly curating a discordant, disorganized and flow-less stream of pop & RB spanning the past decade = not worth your time.
