    Just know that every drink is well-crafted and tested over & over again before it is presented. That's what makes all of them yummy. Staff is always friendly--neighborhood-bar feel with always somethi

    Atmosphere and unique bones make Sidebar golden. Aloft its second-floor perch, skyline views and 7th Avenue buzz give this watering hole reasons to return. Cocktails, suitable.

    Cool bar - horrible service, and even worse place to attempt a 50+ person meetup. The venue only holds 25 people at maximum capacity (with NO elbow room!) Epic fail.

    The corner of 7th Ave and McDowell is going through a "rejuvenation" of sorts w/sidewall seating. If you're heading to SideBar, go early to check out some of the other establishments on the block.

    I have only been here once, but was pleasantly surprised! The odd location always kept me away, and after going once I knew I would be back. I love the vibe and the authentic neighborhood feel.

  • Chris N.

    From the outside you might think this is a dive bar. But once you're inside you quickly realize it has more of a contemporary lounge feel to it. Solid respectable beer selection & decent cocktails

    If you have a diverse group of friends (gay & straight), this is an ideal place to go as a group. Note: Straight ladies, watch the gay men get their flirt on...they're masters at it!
