    This spot is very hit or miss. If you see a cowboy with a guitar DJing, leave ASAP. If you hear current Hip-Hop, stick around and it'll be a good time. Crowd skews towards late 20's early 30's

  • Paul L.
    Mitchell is smoother than Sean Connery, massaging ur feet, listening 2 Smooth Night Jazz 4 while wearing a velvet cod piece and speaking 2 U with a Parisian inflection. His drinks are also delicious
    Paul Lanzarotti · July 17, 2010
  • Cooper S.
    Little known fact - there's an entire back room to this place that's usually empty and chill for after work drinks. (You might get booted for a birthday party)
    Cooper Smith · February 21, 2015
  • Chelsea C.
    The bartender with glasses is a real asshole. Overcharged 30$ and threw a fit and started cursing when I asked him to correct it. He was super shitty- both times I've been there they're understaffed
    Chelsea Coleman · July 19, 2013
  • Stacy H.
    Great bar with an awesome mix of *ss shaking music, but not for the claustrophobic on a wknd night. Reserve a space if you plan on wanting room to breathe.
    Stacy H · February 12, 2012
  • Tracey C.
    Good spot to grab a drink. Not the best beer selection (nothing on draft) but it's quiet and far less crowded than anything else on the block.
    Tracey Churray · June 4, 2014
  • LaDawn P.
    Great place to wait for a table for some of the crowded nearby restaurants. Happy hour on weekends and it lasts until 8!
  • Henali
    came here on Sat night. the place def has some potential but too crowded to even move! might have to try it during happy hour instead..
    Henali · November 20, 2013
  • Ray L.
    They sure make some good Dark & Stormys. But if that's not your jam, they've got a great happy hour on drafts, wine and other cocktails until 8pm.
    Ray Lin · April 27, 2015
  • Monti B.
    I am a fan. They play good music and it's a huge step up from Sweet and Vicious if you're feeling like a sweaty sardine.
    Monti Bray · September 6, 2014
  • Jeff R.
    For good times, make sure you're there when Mitchell, Ellliott or Sonne are there. One of the best weekday spots in Manhattan
    Jeff Ramos · August 10, 2011
  • Chris B.
    Come on Monday to see a whole bunch of DJs try and out do each other. Plus cheap beers and cute waitresses.
    Chris Buckley · March 15, 2011
    mitchell the bartender is a really cool guy...i know him really especially impressed with his lvl 60 paladin in world of warcraft.
    DJFULLTIMEFUN · October 28, 2010
  • Sarah K.
    Sometimes the bartenders make really awesome improvised drinks and for those other times they also serve beer.
    Sarah Kline · July 17, 2011
  • William H.
    Happy hour til 8 and the DJ on Wednesdays (he told me his name is @carverthegreat) absolutely tore it down!
    William H. · May 22, 2015
  • Marc P.
    $7 for a BOTTLE of Brooklyn Lager below 14th st at 6:15pm on a weekday is absolutely unacceptable.
    Marc Patlan · November 15, 2013
  • Emily K.
    Perhaps THE most efficient bartender I have ever experienced during a happy hour rush.
    Emily Kane · April 24, 2015
  • Omar
    Awesome dj plays guitar if you're lucky. Evidently the owners dont think so. Bring back the guitar!!!
    Omar · November 28, 2010
  • Eddie M.
    Totally wear your Ed Hardy gear here on Fri/Sat. Jersey Shore central on those nights. Bartenders are awesome though. Kudos!
    Eddie Mansfield · July 11, 2010

    Loud, even though it wasn't that crowded. There's an interesting room in the back.
    Brian Karfunkel · November 18, 2014
  • Kiefer R.
    Tip Brenton well because he deserves it - he's also hilarious and homeboy makes a mean ass drink.
    Kiefer Roberts · February 23, 2014

    If you're at sweet and vicious and want more hip-hop, this is the place
    Saif Dia · March 1

    Nice place however the drinks could be slightly stronger.

  • Anthony D.
    Crossdressing DJ plays a guitar over records, looks a lot like Alexis Arquette. Spins great 80s 90s.
