    This West Village institution is the best bar to sing solo in front of strangers. Just scrawl your name and request on a napkin and leave it atop the baby grand for the live pianist. Read more

    A staple in the West Village. Come here for a good drink outside, or sit at the bar and chat with the bartender, or take in a good musical review or comedy show.

    Extremely friendly and funny staff, great music, great singing. I was there on Sunday night and it was half full. I went alone but a guy talked to me at a bar so it was not boring at all.

    Kind of gay. Kind of amazing. Live piano jams and singalongs. Very friendly bar staff/entertainers. Unassuming upstairs bar with unisex bathrooms and a bowl full of condoms.

    The performers are always great. This is one of my favorite bars in the West Village. The have a small theatre upstairs with lots of great productions.

    The upstairs bar is a convenient and quieter place to catch up with an old friend over a drink (or 3). Most nights it's like you have the place to yourself!

    Sit at the bar downstairs and get sloshed while a comedian heckles you. Or go upstairs for a wonderfully fun cabaret act.

    It's not really a gay bar anymore during the peak times. Still can be a great spot. Can someone remind the straight people to sing?

    They add a suggested gratuity to all bills and automatically add it to credit card charges. Be careful to not tip twice (unless you want to).

    If you have the hiccups and need to get rid of them, ask Shanna or Poppi for a lemon, bitters, and sugar. Or "the cure". Much quicker!

    The bartender on the 1st floor tonight (12/30/15) was so rude and got mad that we asked the price of house drinks/told the bartender upstairs to not serve us. Then the manager has no authority over it
