    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 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!

    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.

    Come see Andy on the keys on Monday nights. Great bartenders. Catch the afternoon sun with their well placed outdoor seating.

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

    Andy plays piano on Mondays during happy hour, and he's amazing. Also, he's super cute! Go see him!

    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?

    Extremely strong drinks upstairs. A double is more like a triple. And a fun mix of people.

    Vist the Cabaret Theatre upstairs! Usually a good bargain, and some great local talent to boot! Shows around the holidays are especially heartwarming & hilarious!

    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).

    Come by on Monday nights to hear Andy play piano! If you sing, he might even let you come up and join.

    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!
